John Lennon - Walls and Bridges (Apple PCTC253) By 1974 John Lennon had pretty much disappeared from the scene, only to pop up now and again in the tabloids, raising hell with Harry Nilsson during his now legendary 'Lost Weekend' period in LA with May Pang. I was sort of hanging out with a pal's...

Number 32

Ry Cooder - Chicken Skin Music (Reprise REP54083) Ry Cooder's stint with Captain Beefheart was a long forgotten nightmare by the time Chicken Skin Music (the UK equivalent would be 'Goose Bump Music', or music to make your hair stand up) was released in the hot summer of 1976. There had been four...

Wishbone Ash - Wishbone Ash (MCA MKPS2014) The first track I heard from this LP was without question Lady Whisky, which John Peel played one night in the very early 1970s, in fact it was quite possibly 1970. It was one of those frustrating moments where I didn't catch the name of the band or the...

Number 30

Kate and Anna McGarrigle (Warner Brothers K56218) When you first discover voices like this you should really remember where and when you heard them, but to be honest, I don't, for the life of me. It may have been on the Old Grey Whistle Test back in the mid 1970s. It may have been on the John Peel...

Number 29

Frank Zappa - Hot Rats (Reprise 44078) The first time I heard Frank Zappa was in the early 1970s when I bought the Mothers of Invention's second LP Absolutely Free (that's the name of the album not the price tag) from Ken's Swap Shop on St Sepulchre Gate in Doncaster. I was Ken's most keen swapper...
