John Mayall is the godfather of British blues...over the last 50+ years, anybody who was anybody in Brit Rock and Blues has played with him. "The Turning Point" is a classic album featuring his band without a drummer ....what he called "blues without bashing" Whether he did it deliberately as an experiment, as I've no doubt he would claim, or just couldn't get a suitable drummer at the time, only he will be able to tell.

When I was 12, my parents moved out to Killamarsh to run a Beer off. I was just becoming aware of girls and that summer a travelling fair pitched up on the Rec behind our shop. I spent the days and nights hanging about the Waltzer with my mates, trying to look coolLaugh
while the girls stood at the other side whispering and giggling. This song was the big summer hit and was constantly belted out on the Waltzer. Whenever I hear it I can almost smell the diesel and the candy floss and hear the girls scream as they were twirled on the ride.......Happy DaysContent

I don't know what quality of equipment you people are listening in...but if you have stereo quality then you can really appreciate what good percussionist these guys are. I love Latino Rock.

I've always liked music from the Big Band "Swing Era" of the late thirties and early forties. It's the soundtrack to which our fathers and grandfathers fought a war, and some amazing music was produced primarily for dancing. This Cole Porter song was the first big hit for Artie Shaw and his arranger Jerry Gray in 1938, and subsequently became a standard that was recorded by all the big bands of the day.
It just personifies what "swing" is all about and if this doesn't get your feet tapping, you probably don't have a pulse.

I saw these on two or three occasions at the City Hall in the seventies and they were always good value. The lead singer Ian Hunter, was always quite happy to come into the bar and have a drink and a chat with the punters. This is their best known song and biggest hit written for then by David Bowie. I should think everybody on the planet must have heard it at some time.

The Yardbirds were notable for starting the careers of three of Rocks greatest guitarists. Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. When they split in 1968, Page, went on to form Led Zeppelin and Beck formed his own band with a youthful Rod Stewart as lead singer. Clapton's career probably eclipsed all of them....just. This 1966 release has both Page and Beck in the line up and features Beck's innovative psychedelic solo which was becoming fashionable in music at that time. I bought this single and still have it .....somewhereHm

The Nice were one of the first bands of the Prog Rock movement and their keyboard player, Keith Emerson, was obviously a superstar in the making when their first album was released in 1967. A lot of lateral thinking went into their music and this Leonard Bernstein song from the musical West Side Story would at first seem an unlikely vehicle for what would become a rock classic. The sheer energy and excitement that is generated by them was a breath of fresh air in a music scene dominated at that time by Tamla Motown. This song must be listened to Very Loud and preferably whilst holding your fourth pint of Tennants at the Olive Grove.

If you have ever shopped at the Co-oP supermarket on White Lane, Gleadless Town End, you have visited the scene of an important bit of Rock n' Roll history. On February 12th 1963, local lad Peter Stringfellow, who was making his way in the pop promotion world, had booked the Helen Shapiro Tour to appear at the St. Aidens Church Hall on Manor Lane. On the underbill was an up and coming band from Liverpool called the Beatles. A couple of weeks before the show, they had released their second single called "Please Please me" and word on the street was that the record was selling in huge numbers and was predicted to hit the No.1 spot any time soon. So, on police advice, the show was moved to the bigger venue of the Azena Ballroom (now the Co-oP) to accommodate the anticipated big crowd. Sure enough the crowd turned up and the record peaked a few days later. So you could say that Sheffield was the birthplace of Beatlemania CoolLaugh This is the song all the fuss was about.
