Bought a classic Cash album 'At Folsom Prison' for £3 from my favourite record/cd shop in Scarborough
Anything under £3 is a bargain. I tend to go for CDs on eBay in the £2-3 + free postage bracket.

Someone in Japan is a bit over the top attempting to sell this 2CD set for over £500 on Amazon especially it available on Discogs for under a fiver.

Thought I may be in a position to nominate some of these songs in our Mega-Song polls however I reckon the majority of the good un's have already been nominated

Ike & Tina Turner 'River Deep, Mountain High'
Animals 'We've Gotta Get Out Of This Place'
Hollies 'Bus Stop'

Crispian St. Peters 'Pied Piper'
New Vaudeville Band 'Winchester Cathedral'
David Garrick 'Dear Mrs. Applebee'
***reached No.22 in the UK singles chart in 1966***

Never got round to listening to Carla Bley during the 70's. Some great musicians on this album.

I'll have a listen when I have a couple of spare hours Sara

Two of the great live albums of all-time

Johnny Cash 'At Folsom Prison :star: :star: :star: :star: :star:

The first of Johnny Cash's prison albums sees him on raw and rip roaring form

Radiohead 'Glastonbury 2003' ( + bonus tracks from Glastonbury 1997) :star: :star: :star: :star: :star:

Amazing live bootleg featuring 30 songs from two of their Glastonbury sets. Radiohead one of the great bands I adore only loved by a few on here.....brilliant!!!!

Good to see this song through to the semi-finals of the Round 23 Mega-Song polls

Easily the best song in the 2010-2019 era, probably be pipped by a less quality song though :(

I'm sure they do however King Krule are highly original, a breath of fresh air

I came across King Krule on a Jools Holland Later show and was impressed with the track Dum Surfer enough to purchase the album which really knocked me out. 'The Ooz' has elements of hip hop, jazz, trip hop, punk and fusing them into new dark subterranean shapes. A woozy, dark hours jazzy album which is a cross between Tom Waits, dub cuts bits of The Clash with the odd hip hop beat.....Requires a few listens

Dum Surfer and some of the slow jams that sound great on headphones.

CD arrived this morning, and it seems I ordered the wrong one... eBay and drinking don't mix... except, it turns out it's really excellent.

Have a listen to this:

XTC 'Black Sea' :star: :star: :star: :star: and a half

Black Sea stands as one of XTC's finest albums. Partridge & Moulding in top form.

Oh Sara, my favourite Barclay James Harvest album, still gives me immense joy & pleasure with every listen.

Was a big Tull & Yes fan in the 70's, had the pleasure of seeing both bands live in my hippie days :lol: must dig their albums out again :tup:

It's my fave too. I can feel a bit of a retro phase coming on, after listening to a fair amount of newer stuff. It's probably prompted by finally unpacking my last two boxes of CDs nearly two years after moving house!

I've seen Tull multiple times, going back to about 1980. Also seen Ian Anderson solo a few times, and the Mick Abrahams band and Blodwyn Pig.

Yes I saw Blodwyn Pig at Leeds Uni or Poly

Seen BJH several times, always a hard working band like Wishbone Ash. Neither band needed a chart single or a TOTP appearance to sell their albums, minimal radio play too !

Never seen BJH, although I used to see the Enid a lot - there's a tenuous link for you. I think they were more popular in Germany. It was my German exchange partner's family who got me into them.
