Allman Brothers - Eat A Peach, must have one of the best inner covers of all time.

Trip to Berwick St this afternoon, Reckless and Sister Ray, now sitting listening to:

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Willie and the Poor Boys

John Mayall's Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton - the Beano album

Fairport Convention - What We Did On Our Holidays

Stanley Clarke - School Days.

In Reckless saw original (late 50s) mono copy of John Coltrane's Blue Train. Anyone care to guess how much they wanted for it?

Looks a bit Ozric Tentacles to me, but obviously way before them.

An original sold on Discogs for £544.65, so I'll guess it's around £500?

Lovely tune that. Something quite magical about it

It's one of my all time favourites. It's beautiful, joyful, and melancholic all at the same time.

Yes, you read it right *smile*

Neil Sedaka - 'Laughter And Tears' (best of). To me, a fabulous melody writer/songsmith. I can't think of a more poignant tune than 'The Hungry Years', and one that I can relate to.

But there's no way I'd let him babysit. *biggrin*

I'm just saying it as I see it, Freddy. There's something very dark going on behind that sunshiney smile.

I kinda get what you say, quite sugary. However, I see him as more of a joyous sort, and seems quite genuine when I've seen him interviewed. He is at least, a 'proper' musician. Ahh, I get it, you don't like his voice? *biggrin*

I don't care about his voice, and he's written some classic pop records, I just wouldn't trust him alone in a school playground. *biggrin*

Again, I get what you say, but he comes across to me as someone totally opposite to that. I actually prefer the songs that weren't 'hits'. 'The Hungry Years' is a song that really resonates with me, for reasons I won't go into. Always brings a tear...

I hate it when when somebody says, 'I won't go into it'. Freddy, you're amongst friends; please detail your psychological dramas. We've got all night and it'll be theraputic for you! *drinks*

Well, struggling to pay the mortgage, working all hours (nights), not doing enough with/for the kids. Worst of all, looking forward to easier/better times. Would I go back to those harder times? You bet!
