    I came to Podcasts late. Too much music to enjoy! Enjoying 13 Minutes to the Moon - BBC World Service. Fascinating - especially for those of us who lived through the Gemini & Apollo missions.

    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.
    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).

    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!

    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.

    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

    Because of this thread, I now have all my CDs out on the floor. I'm dusting the cases and putting them all in alphabetical order. How sad is that?
    I do that periodically but they never stay in order long!

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

    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!
    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.

    surprised no one has mentioned Queen or Rolling Stones yet. No particular album, cant choose. The Cream of Clapton is one of my favourites.
    Your wish fulfilled - mix and match to your hearts content. Might have picked Let it Bleed though. Bill

    Cream - Disraeli Gears

    My best three but not neccessarily the most played, that's another thread.

    War of the Worlds.....Jeff Wayne

    Journey to the Centre of the Earth...Wakeman.

    Waltz Darling....Malcolm McLaren and the Bootzilla Orchestra.

    Garf.

    Just as an aside..those who like Clapton give Joe Bonamassa a listen.
    Fantastic guitarist in the Clapton mould.
