    Three favourite Albums.....

    Not THE three favourite albums. Three of your favourite albums.............

    In no particular order and if I think about it slightly it would change again. What's three of your favourite albums? Bill

    Jethro Tull - Aqualung

    If not the title track then the barn-storming Locomotive Breath. Hard charging Tull at its best.

    Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin III

    The immigrant song - amazing. It was on the Juke Box by the pool when me and my two mates were on holiday in Majorca. We found the volume control (sorry to all our fellow guests who didn't share our musical taste). It got a few of our Pesetas over the fortnight.

    The Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed. Who hasn't heard Nights in White satin.

    Yes, Alice Cooper!

    I keep getting reminded in this thread of so many great artists and albums. Alice Cooper were very underrated. I remember my parents were horrified by them when I watched them on Top of the Pops.
    I bought my brother the Schools out album. When opening it, it opened up to be a school desk.

    Alice Cooper - The Last Temptation. Lost in America - fantastic lyrics (and the words aren't bad either).

    I have always loved the fact that Alice and Ronnie Corbett are great mates and play golf together regularly.

    Another great band is Lynyrd Skynyrd. Saw them at Knebworth in the 70's when they were on with the Stones and they stole the show. So sad that a couple of years later, the main part of the band died in a plane crash.

    Funnily enough, I've just watched an excellent film called 'Blinded By The Light'. It was based on a true story about a Pakistani boy growing up in Luton. His friend introduced him to the music of 'The Boss' and....................... just watch the film, if you haven't already because it's heartwarming.
    Saw this film when it first came out. Superb, I'm not one to cry at films, but I must admit at the end sequence the only dry eye in the house was my left one!! I live near Luton and recognised a lot of the filming locations.
    On another Springsteen note, Western Stars film was brilliant.

    Anyone mentioned the Boss yet?

    Bruce Springsteen - Devils & Dust - a cracker.

    Hi Jill
    I knew Cliff Hall,a lovely man,he lived over the road.
    They regularly played gigs upstairs in a local pub.

    That link was made at the Liverpool Garden Festival.

    JC
    Cliff died a few years ago didn't he? I think the others still sing but sadly not together. My son and I have a few of their albums.

    Live and Dangerous - Thin Lizzy (the best live album from the best live band, in my view!!)

    Magic in the Air - Lindisfarne live album (Alan Hull must be one of the most underrated songwriters ever)

    Hotel California - the Eagles or maybe Tapestry - Carole King (can't decide on the third one!)
    I love both of your ‘cannot make up your mind 3rd choices’.

    I love the Eagles and Queen.

    Red Hot Chilli Pipers are amazing.

    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.
