    I'd forgotten how good an album that On the Threshold of a Dream is..

    And I ain't apologising.

    I'm with you,have to play the whole album.
    I bought the Rolling Stones album Blues & Lonesome,,,was not keen,,put it in the car,now can't stop playing it.
    Its what the Stones were all about Rock/Blues.

    Listen to the harmonica on this track.



    I have 10 Stones albums on my iPad mini,,,on the coach to Southampton I listen to half going down,the other half coming back.

    The harmonica is awesome - their early stuff was incredible.

    Hey, forgot about Runrig

    Live at the Barrowlands was amazing - would go as often as we could. When they played Loch Lomond the suspended floor was bouncing with eightsome reels being danced. Memorable gigs.

    My music passion is (well when I was but a callow youth) the Rolling Stones. In saying that we had a band and played the pubs & clubs (we were about 20 odd in age) and never did play 'Stones covers - seems our best cover was Maggie May by Rod Stewart (nobody would pay you to play your own stuff - I wonder why). Having a very large music collection I started to put all my CD's (got rid of Vinyl years ago) onto my iPod touch. Having looked at the artists I seem to have a rather new set of favourites. But I am a long way off getting them all onto the iPod. If I spent less time on photography then I would have more time to upload the music. More critical now that my car doesn't have a CD player so need to stream with Bluetooth to the DAB player.

    e.g.:
    Pink Floyd - 17 albums

    Rolling Stones - 4 albums

    Moody Blues - 9 albums

    Hmm, I think it is more about something we both like to listen to hence all the Pink Floyd and very little 'Stones. Must try harder - I'll transfer more - if I only had some more time .

    Hi Bill
    Good choice in Stones album 'Get yer ya ya's ou' except for one track,,,,,Midnight Rambler.
    It rambles on for over 9 mins,,,,,it would have been good at 4 mins.

    Of course it was made to get everyone bouncing at live concerts.

    It was aired here last night. I must admit to being a bit disappointed, but not enough to switch off. I really made me realize how much an artist’s performance is created by sound engineers. The idea was good though, and all the money had been raised from businesses ahead of time, so there was little of the begging that goes on in telethons. Mick Jagger can still sing, but the other Stones could have stayed home - oh of course they did😀

    Hi Sheila
    I thought the same,I watched a bit of Annie Lennox and it lacked the studio mixing.

    But as a charitable effort I will watch it.

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

    Good Stones choice and having had time to think about it i will nme my favourite Queen album. Kind of Magic. It reminds of a holiday we had in the Yorkshire dales driving around in in my MGB with the tracks blasting out. Dont think the kids were too keen at being squashed in the back though. Saw Queen at Knebworth too. Great concert.

    Another U-tube offering, this time it’s a bit of fun with the BBC News music theme. I particularly like the Welsh drummer and the Irish dancer. Enjoy!

    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.
    I am kinda classic light - but most modern music has it's roots in the classics.

    Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov - Sheherazade

    Isao Tomita - The Planets (you've not heard the Planet Suite until you've heard this version)

    Thanks JC

    You could be of a different generation Delboy - a much younger generation!
    Born 1940 married 1965 so my music was from the late 50’s onwards, not heard of any of the groups you mention. Even then was not really into groups or albums..
    Did go to a Jean Michel Jarre concert with my young son in the Dockland area of East London used to like his music but could not name an album.
