Your parent's record collection
on: January 07, 2014, 22:25:10
Which albums belonging to your parents did you enjoy most of all? 

I used to wear the grooves out on a Buddy Holly album from my Mam and Dad's collection!

My Parents used to have music evenings when I was a kid, they'd pull out all the LP's including Marillion, Uriah Heap, gypsy kings, abba, frankie goes to Hollywood, (occasionally the Beatles and David Essex if my mum got a say) and loads more, a real mix. The evening always seemed to end with Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds, (i love listening to that, looking at that artwork) and especially the songs Thunderchild and my favourite, Forever Autumn.

My dad listened to - Elvis , dean Martin , the drifters , the every brothers , don Mclean

My mum was - the hollies

Oddly enough I never really got into the Beatles until I was 16-17 and I fell in love with them - my dad thinks they were all prats

At this time I also fell in love with the small faces - man I love that band so much

  These are two 45's my mother used to have......I played them all the time, before I could buy my own ;D ;D

  I love the Ketty Lester one, and think it's crying out for a modern day cover ;D  What do you think Paul ;D

 I can hear you and Nooms doing a version of this ;D ;D ;D........or maybe not ;D

I love music like that Ketty Lester track - it has this great innocence to it. Percy Sledge and all that kind of thing. There just doesn't seem to be stuff like that anymore - talent rather than image. Now it's who can try and shock most because they don't have any real ability.

Love Letters - Ketty Lester - quite marvelous Steve!  This is typically the kind of music that I would hear on the old radiogram when I was a kid, every Sunday.  :)

I've just been listening to Sade on youtube a 2011 concert - reminded me of how much I loved her music in the 80's.  I think, that you may like some of her songs which are clearly 80's pop but very much jazz influenced! Sade has hardly aged in the last 30 years - talk about finding the elixir of life potion!  ;D

Thanks Steve!

Justin Heywood - The Moody Blues.

Now that's a perfect song and what a voice!  :)
