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.

Music is very important to me too bobbo. I'm impressed by  you going to the States  all those times to see James Taylor - I'm a big fan of West Coast singer/songwriters of that era too - Jackson Browne and Joni Mitchell being particular favourites, and here are two of the   best-

I thought of Farlowe as just a cover artist - buddying up with the Stones etc. Nothing more than that?


definately not milo.
When i used watch him way back he had his own band behind him " the thunderbirds " although I bow down to the fact he was nowhere near the dizzy heights of the stones.

That sounds great bobbo - I'm an old'un myself, but don't really remember  Conway Twitty, never  realised how good he was.

This is one of the first records to really get my feet tapping, really made an impression when i first heard it blasting out of the radio-

Rock Island Line by the great Lonnie Donnegan -

Where would music be without the great Lonnie D, Mark Knopfler pays tribute to Lonnie for his love of music and influence in the early years.

Brilliant versions of classic songs, JC, with a  great sentiment  behind them .
Here's Bob Dylan and Robbie Robertson and The Band doing All Along the Watchtower.



Loved that Skeeter Davis song, too, bobbo, when i was young. Here's another classic from that era, It's My Party. Lesley Gore
