THE SMITHS HATFUL OF HOLLOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I never ever know these, I"m so excited to know one.
Me too: 7 is Deuce by Rory Gallagher.Now, why on earth would I know that?
1. Is Juju by the Banshees.
This is not my bag but if we need an EOTWQ I could come up with something, only if it's going begging.
Do it, GF, do it!
God knows why I should know this as I don't now (and never have) owned anything by the man, but I instantly recognised no.9 as being by Boz Scaggs. I'm only claiming half the points on offer as I had to check the name of the album which is apparently Silk Degrees.
I'll hold 'til tomorrow just in case someone's got one ready.
Poop, a coup0le look familiar but the only one I knew for sure was Boz Scaggs - Silk Degrees, but it's been Toffitized. (well done, you bastard)
9 blodwyn(sp)pig 'ahead rings out'never heard it, but famous sleeve.... (maybe just for a designer, as no one else has got it yet)
I mean #4the pig one!!!!!!!!!!!
I knew that I knew number 3 but I also knew that getting to the bottom of it would involve delving deep into my prog-rock past. But I got there in the end:Atomic Rooster - Death Walks Behind YouI thank you ...
I did at least recognise that #2 was a Smiths records. Which is better than I normally manage.
No. 10 is driving me crazy - which I suppose could be a quote from Gordon Brown ...
Or Polly Toynbee
Dear Mr, uh, ToffeeBoy is it?Please don't dis me in my hoodG-man
Got it!The Allman Brothers - Brothers & SistersI used to own it - it features Jessica which is probably my favourite Allman Brothers track.
And 'sampled' for the Top Gear theme
@ tinny - indeed. But let's not hold that against it.What exactly is 'econoimic collapse" by the way?
dunno, i was wondering that myselfThere's been a bit of a stink about the PM's penmanship. Maybe it was the anonymous poster's intent to make a non-subtle typo. Who knows what was in his mind? We can only guess at these things.
well I knew 1 & 2 immediately. & also vaguely recognised 3,4,7,8 & 10.
GF - looking forward to your EOTWQ's!
OK, so we are waiting for 5, 6 and 8 ...........The rest are all correct.
Oops. Late to this. 8 is The Steve Miller Band, but I can't remember which ... when I tell you, I'll own up to whether that's because I figured it out or googled it out of frustration!!
I actually thought that when I first saw it DsD.Fly Like an Eagle or something?
It isn't Fly Like An Eagle
If ToffeeBoy feels he can survive an even deeper dive into his prog-rock past, he may come across the answer to number 5. I'm not going to claim any credit, but I knew I'd seen it before, so I went a -googlin'. And I was right, I had seen it before, thanks to a teenage clamber around a Pete Frame rock family tree that I was led to by gordonimmel's favourite singer.
@ tin - no, much newer than FLAE. Might be the one with Abracadabra on it ...
... I should have added "I think" to that last comment, because I haven't pinned it down yet.
ToffeeBoy may well have to descend into the pit of progtimes past!
Dunno DsD. To be hoinest the only Steve Milller Band I really liked was his Motherless Children, and that I really liked.Have you seen your pressie in dropbox yet btw?
HA! No, tin, I hadn't, but I have now. But ... only 99 files?
yes, CD only holds 99 so i deleted #100 to burn a cd and, er, well, oooh, look over there(I wanted to put it up solos week but it was so full and then came leeds...)
I know number six, Carole! (big surprise!). It's Jerry's first, Garcia, of course.5 and 8 are familiar... but nor familiar enough.
Hmmm, well I gave up trying to remember which Steve Miller Band album it was, and with the thought "is it that 70s greatest hits one?" in my head went to allmusic to find out. It isn't Greatest Hits 74-78, but the number of songs on both was a bit freaky!
I'll post the remaining answers tomorrow evening.Well done everyone!Perhaps Blimpy will come up with a few prizes?
the Steve Miller Band album is Book of Dreams...
Book of Dreams it is.Just #5 then.
Afternoon all. My first time here - can't resist a quiz. I know what #5 is. But I might have cheated...
Eyup, bishbosh! Welcome aboard, mate.
Wotcha, DarceysDad. Slightly shamefaced (but excited) at being sucked ever further into the RR universe... So does no-one legitimately know #5 then? Frankly, I'd never heard of them, but then I know very little music- (or other-) wise pre-1981.
I've never owned 5, but did vaguely recognise the cover, so did a bit of research and reminded myself. Fairly sure I borrowed it from Chester Library around 1980 when I was trying (& failing) to get my head around Ian Gillan's Episode Six output. The connection is the drummer. Couldn't tell you what the contents sound like to save my life, but hey ho!
According to wiki-wiki-wikipedia, "compactness, wealth of ideas, forceful lead vocals and complicated arrangements, enriched by the pianist's tasteful use of classical strings which are on display along with spacious keyboard passages at their height in the mold of The Nice". So there you go!
Hmmm, would have gone right over the head of the 15yo AC/DC fan me, then! Anyhoo, gotta go ... back later tonight.
OK, 'Spillsters.Album cover #5 is the eponymous album by Quatermass.Bass player Johnny Gustafson later played with Ian Gillan and also Roxy Music.That was where my "descend into the pit of progtimes past" comment originated; Quatermass and the Pit geddit?
