    I have always considered it their best album Eddie.

    "Norwegian wood", "In my life"........ magnificent. :D
    I've always been partial to "Abbey Road," but trying to compare those two albums is an exercise in futility.

    I'll probably stick with The Beatles today and listen to "With The Beatles" and "Abbey Road". "Rock & Roll Music" playing now - great track.

    Problem with listening to The Beatles is I start remembering what I was doing 30 - 40 years ago and it's depressing that I'm not still doing it. :wink:

    The Doors, wonderful stuff. :D

    I'm having "Roadhouse blues" (live version) played at my funeral along with Hendrix's "Little wing". :)

    Just listened to Joe Cocker's "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" twice, straight through. It really is an amazing album plus some great piano playing from Leon Russell. If you've never heard it, here's a taster.

    Destroyer: Destroyer's Rubies.

    Don't know it very well yet but it seems to be one of those bands that you need to hear quite a few times to really get. So for now it's pretty good and I expect it to be no less than great in a month or so :)

    Cheers,

    I've been working through "Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 500". Some classics, some dross.

    At this precise moment in time: Kings of Leon 'Because of the Times'. Quite different to their previous couple of albums, but some great ear bleeding tracks all the same.

    The Rocker - Thin Lizzy. Last night after a night shift it came up on my compilation disc just as I was about to go onto the driveway, so I had to drive round the block so I could listen to it and not wake up the family and neighbours.

    The Raven is a concept album by Lou Reed released in 2003. Its goal is to recount the short stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe through word and song. Both "The Bed" and "Perfect Day" are new and very different versions of well-known Reed songs from previous albums, and the song "Fire Music" is white noise. In addition to Reed it features a number of guest vocalists including Laurie Anderson, David Bowie, Antony Hegarty, Steve Buscemi and Willem Dafoe. The producer, Hal Willner, had previously overseen the Poe tribute album Closed on Account of Rabies.
    Highly recommended.

    After listening to Eric Burden discussing the origins of "The House of The Risng Sun" on Radio 4 today, I'm listening to UK No 1s of 1964.

    Yup. I'll never do it without the fez on!

    Oasis latterly for me. Been watching clips of the Lions Tour DVD from '97 and have the urge to belt out a verse of two of "Wonderwall" into a karaoke machine :D

    Bit of a mixed bag for me:

    Just started Led Zep's Mothership
    Leonard Cohen's Songs Of Love And Hate
    TONTO's Zero Time (on original vinyl)
    and
    Pavarotti and Joan Sutherland's La Fille du Regiment (how did he get those High C's!)
