      My favourites change with how I feel.

      One I have loved, which I got as a twenty first present, which never goes out of favour is a rendering by The Huddersfield Choral Society of Handel's Messiah.

      I have an up to date recording on CD.

        Hot August Night- Neil Diamond

        Abba Gold- Abba

        Cast recording of the musical”JesusChrist Superstar

        have these three on my iPod and listen to them whilst doing my daily exercise- a bit cheesy but very uplifting in these uncertain times!

              Your wish fulfilled - mix and match to your hearts content. Might have picked Let it Bleed though. Bill

              Cream - Disraeli Gears

                Wouldn't call JCS cheesy! I love it though. Was hoping to see the play on YouTube released by Andrew L Webber but it was on about 10 days ago and missed it.

                  I do that periodically but they never stay in order long!

                  Pet hate? An empty jewel case and no CD - where is it?

                      Seeing all the different Albums, how often do you listen to an Album of a singer or group all the way through.

                      I listen to a lot of music almost daily via a pair of Bose noise cancelling headphones attached to either my Apple Air iPad or my iPhone, useless for music without the headphones. Often late at night in bed.

                      However I have never been into listening to Albums of song after song from the same singer or group, much prefering to listen to compilations. On Spotify I have playlists which I have made up over time of different genre’s, some of the playlists of over 300 songs from various artists and groups, which when listening to I Just click to random play.

                      Although different when attending live concerts of a singer or group.

                        If I am putting a cd or vinyl on at home, will listen to the whole album all the time. Or multichanger and a mix from 7 different albums. If I am out and about, then usually spotify random

                        Guess that is why those albums are in my top 3, every track is brilliant, and I never tire of hearing the whole album

                            Don't have any vinyl and cannot remember the last time I listened to a CD, very rarely listen to music in the car unless on long journeys then it’s the radio, my music listening majority of time is Spotify.

                              I confess that I never play my albums these days. I do sometimes ask Alex to play something if the mood take me.

                              Reading all the posts, there are so many of my albums that missed the top 3 but I was spoilt for choice.

                                You could be of a different generation Delboy - a much younger generation!

                                When I play music (often) it is always a complete album. I feel you don't get to know an artist (or group) by only hearing their hits. There is much more depth when listening to their albums. I get frustrated hearing an album track I know on the radio because I know what follows and want to hear it. You still get the odd curveball though!

                                In 1973 my wife (then fiancee) bought me A Passion Play by Jethro Tull - everything went well until the track The Hare Who Lost His Spectacles - what drug was he on? It took months (nay years) before I grew to like it all because of that oddball track. No surprises it went too No.1 in the States.

                                What about The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - SAHB Stories - Boston Tea Party. Amazing. Alex Harvey - you wanted him on your side in a fight (especially in Glasgow).

                                SAHB Stories.jpg

                                In the same vein of SAHB - a rarely known Scottish Band. Writing on the Wall - The Power of the Picts. Stonker of an album - Hill of Dreams, Tasker's successor - ok every track!
