I was only 14 in 1971.

We've gone even more off topic than we did with the iPod, iPhone stuff.  Sorry Graham.

Yes, Telegraph Road's got it all (well sort of) - quiet noodling and thunderous climaxes . . . 

Plus it's a bit nostalgic for me as I saw DS at the Hammersmith Odeon (as it was) on their "Live in '85 (and a bit in '86)" tour . . . (feeling my age now Confused ).

Really like MK's guitar playing. Sultans of Swing prompted my to buy my first pop album since Sgt Pepper in '67 - had many years in the classical wilderness Shocked. Now I listen to anything; well, not country & western, obviously . . . LOL

Hammersmith Odeon? saw Mike Oldfield there in '82 and OMD in '83 so you're not the only one feeling their age LOL


Stop it! I saw Black Sabbath at Sheffield City Hall in 1972 so that should mean I'm a corpse by comparison... Wink
King Crimson at Chatham Central Hall in 1971!!!

Can anyone join in?
Cream Farewell Concert, Albert Hall. The who at the Roundhouse. Those were the days!!!!!!!!!!!!

i remember watching it with my older brothers on BBC 2's Omnibus. I'm sad to say I didn't appreciate it at the time.

Well...

I saw Black Sabbath at The Star, Broad Green (near Croydon) in 1970. It cost 8 shillings to get in (that's 40p in new money). Saw David Bowie there too, same year (Easter Monday) - but what was really strange was that there can't have been more than 30 people there Confused. Jimi Hendrix apparently played there, in 1967 (I think).

It was always The Star on Friday nights, and The Greyhound (Croydon) on Sundays - every New Year's Eve was Status Quo.

The Roundhouse at Chalk Farm was also a favourite destination on Sunday afternoons/evenings for the Implosion, with Jeff Dexter DJ'ing. That was 50p to get in. I saw Curved Air there, among many other bands.

Then there was Led Zep at The Albert Hall in 1969 (I went a friend who'd bought 50p tickets and when we got there we found we each had a box each to ourselves!.

Happy days! Smile
