Re: °What's On My Racks°

... y'know it's quite cathartic compiling this thread, as I mooch through these shelves, the smell of them alone and experiences within them.. of records I actually bought and still own some 40 or 50 years later, has dredged up memories... be it a chink of light.. or a dark corridor I don't want to revisit-I am both blessed and cursed with a crystal sharp memory...
Guy Stevens captured it then and the lyrics reflect almost every Saturday for mine and our time- themdays

Mott The Hoople - Saturday Kids.

Re: °What's On My Racks°

The Unfortunate Cup Of Tea was the access album for me, Irish folk with a twist. The Tain still gets respect here, but mostly on CD format.

Horslips - Dearg Doom.

ELO were a logical step from The Move (not Wizzard though)..
Another song perfected at Musicland in Munich.
This and New World Record I prefer to Out Of The Blue.

ELO - Poker.

Re: °What's On My Racks°

Many years later I learned Bill Nelson was filed under 'Art Prog'... I had no notion at the time and the fact they were on Harvest was provenance enough to a 16 year old.
A trio from BeBop Deluxe :

Ships In The Night.


Kiss Of Light.


Panic In The World.

Don't know what the bed wetters, tree huggers, algorithm lovers would make of this?
It makes for a great run through..

Sadly the bassist Paul Jefferys died in the Lockerbie Air terrorist bomb attack... (and Sex Pistols John Lydon missed the flight due to not packing his luggage in time!)

Re: °What's On My Racks°

Stevie Fields gave this album a funky feel and Jeff Beck added that edge... one of two treasured albums.

Upp - Bad Suff.

Re: °What's On My Racks°

I picked this album up about 1980 from a junk store for 50p... Still have it, never seen it anywhere!
