Quote:and Steve- what the hell is Springsteen going on about in Blinded By The Light ???

It's an oft asked question, to which, there is only one answer...

...I ain't got a bl**din' clue!

Geoff, I'm afraid Phil Collins is still a bit too cool (at least to some). How about that Wombles album you have hidden in your cupboard, that you've been itching to play for the last 25 years, but were too afraid the neighbours would hear? Wink

Thanks for the apology Geoff : ) long time since I`ve been called darling so I would forgive you anything : )) must admit I too have Phil Collins.

Saddest album has to be Glenn Campbell lol now you can laugh....

Quote:In a Big Country - Big Country

OK, if we're being honest I suppose I should confess to not only owning the album... but also quite liking it too.

Steve (aka Skelator) - Listen pal - Mike Batt's production on that Wombles album is amazing (The man's a genius), and top session men like Chris Spedding play on it - the stunning Minuetto Allegretto anybody (The Wombles and Mozart !!), It does'nt get any better than this, I rest my case.
And I once saw Big Country at the height of their fame in about 83/84 and they were great live, a very under-rated band and time for a Stuart Adamson (RIP) revival I reckon.
Oh and Liz - Glen Campbell, well, Wichita Linesman is a wonderful song, and he did once play guitar for the Beach Boys so I'll forgive him Rhinestone Cowboy.
Have a great weekend everydody, and don't work too hard.
Remember You're A Womble !!

Just for the pedants among you I know that the Big Country LP was called "The Crossing" and not " In a Big Country", sorry all. ( I still really love it though!!)

Steve - sorry if I know just a little too much about the Wombles, I know that it's a bit worrying.

Anyway off to see and photograph Muse at the Eden Project tomorrow night ( I have a press pass), so I'll post a couple of pics of Matt Bellamy and the boys here later in the week.

And I know that I have had my 10 albums but can I also have Tunnel of Love by Bruce and Blood On the Tracks by his Royal Bobness ??

A friend of mine's daughter has just celebrated her 13th birthday and as well as the usual party adult friends of the parents along with family were invited around for a drink and asked to 'contribute' a CD that meant something to them (I think that I'll add a full stop now). She got some great stuff from Sinatra through Tom Waits and the Clash up to Razorlight. I agonised and gave Love's forever changes (the great tracks make up for the duff one's)along with a compilation of my own....I wish my parents did the same for me when I was a teenager!
My CD contained (among others)
The Gotan Project - La Revancha Del Tango
Dylan - Blood on the tracks
Massive Attack - Protection
Cat Power - Moon Pix
Captain Beefheart - The Spotlight Kid
Ray Lamontagne - Trouble
Tom Wats - Blue Valentine
John Hiatt - Slow turning
Elliot Smith - From a Basement on a hill
Neil Young - Weld
These are the albums that some of the tracks that I burned came from - not necessarily the artists best. No sign of my all time faves - Bowie, Richard Thompson the Pixies or the Smiths/Morrisey.

If I wrote this tomorrow the list would be different thats the great thing about music - it's magic!!!

Todays list, in no particular order...

Kate Bush - The Red Shoes / Ariel. You choose for me, she does no wrong.
Dire Straits - Love Over Gold. Only 5 tracks but never fails to transport me away. (could be a good thing!)
Deacon Blue - Raintown. Stunning album, soulful and thought-provoking, great playing, too.
Kaiser Chiefs -Employment. Took out the stereo in my van with this one.
Crowded House - Temple of Low Men. Tough to pick one, this list could be all CH albums.
Neil Finn - Try Whistling This. The guy is a craftsman.
UB40 - Signing Off / Baggariddim. Only the old stuff please.
Madeleine Peyroux - Careless Love. An old soul in a young body. The new Ella Fitzgerald.
Kate Rusby - Underneath The Stars. Corrrr, she's great.
Hendrix - Are You Experienced? The master, nuff said.

One or two may change tomorrow but the old(er) ones are permanent fixtures. Shame it wasn't a 'top 100' list - there's lots that never made it.....

A top idea producing an interesting thread. Smile Have to go home and drag some of these out tonight for a bit of a blast.

P.S. Never ditch your vinyl. keep it, treasure it, play it. Wink

edit: Found soooo much good stuff in other peeps' lists, too. Must do some shopping.....
