What Are You Listening To?
^TB II is my favourite. 

Colin Bass - An Outcast of the Islands. Lovely album helped along by the keening guitar of one A Latimer.

THE WHO  "tommy" cd, 1969:
their fourth....
I cant believe it only took them that many album to reach that pinnacle!...
as a comparison The Beatles were still releasing "eight days a week" from "beatles for sale"
as their fourth album and it took Small Faces till their fifth to release "ogdens nut gone flake"
so I rest my case as to the genius that is/was Pete Townshend...
a concept album about a deaf,dumb and blind kid who could play a mean pinball to escape
the memories of sexual abuse at the hands of a relative, a deep dark subject not only then but
also in todays world!...
Townshend said in his "who I am" autobiography that he was Tommy and the album was his way of
coming to terms with the sexual abuse he suffered as a child in post WWII Britain...
a classic album, and my favourite of theirs by a long shot and can only be enjpoyed with the volume up on 
full and the cans on!

could have picked literally any track off this one but I chose this one on this occasion:

JOHNNY WINTER  "nothin' but the blues"  cd,  1977:

eighth studio set from Mr Winter....
a return to blues rock after a couple of albums of drifting away from it....
one cover on here, a Muddy Waters track, the rest are all originals...
full on blues rock here, not surprising with Muddy and his band performing
all musical duties here...
another very good album from Johnny Winter...

Been listening to a lot of Tori Amos lately. One of my favourites. Woman is an enigma.

Pure genius. Like the original album as well as the movie soundtrack. Both excellent. Quadrophenia is worth a listen as well.

Quadrophenia, I was a Mod back in the day, its one of my favourite movies, I own the album on vinyl from back in the day, just never got round to get it on cd

AEROSMITH  "toys in the attic"  cd, 1975

the band's third...
classic rock and a bit of blues rock on here...
only one of theirs I own along with a compilation...
love every track on this one...
not sure about the rest of their studio albums but if theyre half as good as this one
then they would be worth buying!
classic stuff...

could have picked anything off this one but this is a cool live clip so this one it is....

Al Stewart - On the Border - a 'best of' compilation. Great album! Contains the delightfully quirky Betty Boop's Birthday. Some great lyrics all over the album.

I'm actually embarrassed to say that I own nothing by All, not even a compilation...
