Number 59

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 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...

Number 228

By the mid-1970s some of Prog Rock's most ardent followers must have seen the writing on the wall as...

Number 58

Suzanne Vega - Marlene on the Wall (A&M 275 - 1985) The mid-1980s was an interesting time for folk music with the re-emergence of singer-songwriters being once again accepted in the genre. Rarely did a female American singer-songwriter make it onto the cover of Folk Roots magazine, but there...

Number 227

Bert Sommer - The Road to Travel (Capitol ST189) Bert Sommer is one of those artists who for whatever reason slipped by almost unnoticed during his career in music. I was aware of his name as I'd seen it appear in music journals around the early 1970s and he was on the bill of possibly the most...

Number 57

Dave Edmunds Rockpile - I Hear You Knocking (MAM 1 - 1970) 1970 was so important for me personally. I became a teenager in May of that year and the leap from the age of 12 to 13 was enormous. At the time I was unaware of how lucky I had been to live through the entire career of The Beatles, from...
