Handily I have quite a few of those albums now so you could get reacquainted.
Bridge of sighs is fab. So is phaedra. SWMBO doesnt thinks so though.
I think you have a pfm album of mine, dont think it was that one though

'Orange', awethumne album that. 'Night of the 4th of May' is a such an ace song (IMO).

Its on reprise records and has the insert still.
Another 2 today, needing to make up for being abit of a dick to SWMBO the other day I thought id get her some music she has mentioned she wanted. picked up the clash 'London calling', the jam 'the gift'. (specific songs she wanted were London calling and town called malice hence those particular albums)
and a compilation called back on the road. (same again, specific sings, see below...)
It caught my eye because the sleeve proclaimed that it includes free, cream, traffic, Jethro tull, deep purple, jimi hendrix, black sabbath and velvet underground.
Also has white rabbit by jefferson airplane and white bicycle by tomorrow on it which are 2 of her favourite songs.
She has stopped giving me the side eye for now....

I hate to think how much money I have spent with russ since he opened the record stall.
Gawd bless him :D

Wondered when you'd find out what a complete load of absolute, utter twaddle that LP is. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Serves you right for buying me Tales From Topographic Oceans. :D :D

Agreed about Brain Salad Surgery. Tarkus and the first lp are both a better listen in my opinion.

My impression is that the title track is good for testing speakers.
