Although pop reggae, as opposed to the more...

Number 61

Neil Young - Heart of Gold (Reprise K14140 - 1972) It was hard to escape the sound of Neil Young in the early 1970s, which was largely due to his hugely successful third solo album After the Goldrush and its follow up Harvest. The now familiar acoustic sound of this era was as a result of a back...

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...

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.
