Music.....

Possibly leading on from Bodgers Dessert island disc's.....reguardlles. what individual record means so much to you...songs that have a meaning in your life    

A love song , a ballad, a show song. opera, whatever, a time a place you were at......a memory....

Personally I must have ...well hundreds/nay thousands of tapes, 45's,even 78's,
33's=LP's..and of course Cd's...

All of which ...well tell the story of my life....


Which I am now slowly down loading onto my 'greatfully accepted' IPod /CD/Radio player.....(Christmas Pressie from my DD ...Just gotta get me 'ead around it')

can even take out the scratches of forty plus year back..

First record you dance too..the record youn first purchaced, The record that speaks about your Life, says something about You....

I'll tell, If you will...

First record I bought?  Probably 'Ernie, the fastest milkman in the west'!

Favourite song of al time?  'Bridge over Troubled Water' (Simon and Garfunkel)

My first LP, I think, was Seventh Sojourn by the Moody Blues. My first single was a signed copy of White Christmas by Max Bygraves. I hasten to add this was a present from my Godfather who produced it.

Favourite track of all time has to be Who knows where the time goes by Sandy Denny. But her version of Knockin on heavens door makes the hairs on the back of my neck prickle.

Artic That first one is a big favourite of mine but by "Bobby Fuller Four" bit earlier  

First lp would be Beetles "Hard days night" I think cant remember or might have been "Johnny Cash" had a lot of Brass Band ones Like :Men of the Mall"

  1st albums I can remember buying was one by the Monkey's (cant recall its title) and Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel.
All time favourite tracks  Simply Red.. Holding back the years and George Harrison.. Here comes the sun.
