Maddy Prior and June Tabor - Silly Sisters (Chrysalis 1101) I first came across Maddy Prior and June Tabor's collaborative LP Silly Sisters in the Sound and Vision department of Doncaster Central Library in the mid 1980s, a good ten years after the LP was first released. Folk music of this kind...

Number 60

McGuinness Flint - When I'm Dead and Gone (Capitol CL15662 - 1970) Although most of the music I was listening to in 1970 centred around the growing underground popularity of rock music with the emergence of such bands as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Free and Wishbone Ash to name but a few, there was...

Number 230

Cream - Goodbye Cream (Polydor 583053) The first time I heard the opening riff of Cream's Sunshine of Your Love , I knew my life would never be the same again.

Number 229

Terry Reid - River (Atlantic SD7259) I first became aware of Terry Reid when I read somewhere that he was the first choice as lead singer with Led Zeppelin before Robert Plant got the gig. He turned it down but apparently suggested Plant instead. 'Superlungs', as Terry is sometimes known, also...

Alice Cooper - Under My Wheels (Warner Bros 7529 - 1971) Quite by coincidence, I left school in the summer of 1972 just as Alice Cooper's record Schools Out was enjoying some chart success in the UK, the song reaching the number one spot in June of that year. The single itself should possibly have...

Number 228

Ian Dury - New Boots and Panties (Stiff Records SEEZG4) The mid 1970s was a confusing time for music, especially if you were not quite ready to abandon rock music, or more specifically Prog Rock. By the mid-1970s some of Prog Rock's most ardent followers must have seen the writing on the wall as...
