Places (Help with places, streets and buildings in Wigan.)
Terry – I didn’t buy any of the Tyrannosaurus Rex albums but have some early stuff on cassette tape. It’s a bit annoying that cars only have a CD slot these days! Perhaps they’ll soon have vinyl slots! Also his early glam rock singles have some great B sides. I know he wanted and got fame but I thought he had so much more to offer as an ‘underground’ artist – but that’s probably me just being selfish.
Jarvo – I bought Gentle Giant’s ‘Free Hand’ from the little outside market stall in Manchester near Affleck’s for 2 quid. It is classical Chamber Music given a progressive twist. As for Deram, Moody Blues were on the label (Days of Future Passed), but Johnny Almond too (Johnny Almond Music Machine – Patent Pending). I could never manage to get the vinyl but have it on CD now. He was a young guy and music genius who I compare to Mike Oldfield regarding age and early talent.
John Mayall on Decca – Bare Wires is an incredible haunting song. John lived in a tree house at one time!
This is a great thread and the nostalgia here is very refreshing.
