Love this Andrew gold was a bit underrated I thought.

I agree he was more than a bit underrated, here he is with Graham Goldman (10cc)

A little known number by Chris Farlowe.

I used to go see him playing the clubs back in my teens. 1960 ish.

So many great musicians and bands he played with or supported.In no particular order; John Hiseman and Colosseum, Carl Palmer, Zoot Money, Graham Bond, Dave Greenslade, The Hill etc. Just a superb vocalist.

Twig,
      I'm not 100% sure if he's still doing a bit even now. I saw him at the polish club in Amersham about 4-5 years ago.

      John the two tracks you put on both great listening, keep it up.

This was part written by sonny bono ,for who I don't know but this girl was the first to record followed by many other. For me this remains the original and the best.

Back around 1962 I used to frequently watch cliff Bennett and the rebel rousers, they sang it regularly, but still love this most.

That's great bobbo.
Needles and Pins was one of the first records i ever  bought - on an EP by The Searchers, but Jackie de Shannon's is obviously the definitive version.

RE above - Always a big fan of Chris Farlowe, and of Coloseum with the great Jon Hiseman and Dick Heckstlall Smith (and the others you mention) - great to hear them together -



RIP Phil May of the Pretty Things. They were  heroes of mine in the early 60's - they seemed  far more rebellious than the Stones. Their first single Rosalyn was great, really  raw  sounding.



Early footgae of them doing Don't Bring Me Down-



They want on to have a long and influential career, if not great commercial success, but many fans amongst well known  musicians, and recorded one of the first story telling albums with S F Sorrow,a forerunner of the Who's Tommy.
They were still performing until  very recently, when Phil May was diagnosed with emphysema.

Great listening ray. Saw it a couple of days back just had time to play it. Keep em coming.

I thrive on music I like. Been to a good few concerts over years, and no matter who I've been to watch come away with real feel good feeling. I've flown out to US about 7 times to see James Taylor.

Lucky enough to see the PTs in their final year live in Nottingham. Only about 100 in the audience but they blew them all away!

I'm sorry to disagree with the majority on here, but everyone's taste is different, thank God.

I saw Chris Farlowe live and couldn't believe how poor he was, especially in his highest charting desecration of the Jaggers & Richards song 'Out Of Time'.
