10) Thin Lizzy Johnny the fox 1976
The year I left schooland a hot summer for weather and music!
A realmasterpiece from Phil Lynott and the band. Love ‘ Dont believe a word’ and ‘Borderline’.
9) Paul McCartney and Wings Band on the run 1973
Possibly McCartneys best solo album and still sounds great. Love ‘Jet’ and ‘Let me roll it’.
8) Supertramp Breakfast in America 1979
A classic from the late 70s. Love ‘The logical song’ and ‘ Goodbye stranger’.
A unique sound and stands the test of time.
7) The Eagles Hotel California 1976 What a year for classic albums
Great rick album and great album cover. Love the title track and ‘ Life in the fast lane’.
6) T Rex Bolan Boogie 1972. Had to incude some T Rex. This early compilation contains some great tracks, including ‘ Ride a white swan’ and ‘Jeepster’. Just love the guitar on these songs, aswell as Marc Bolans voice and quirky lyrics.
5) Elton John Dont shoot me Im only the piano player 1973
The first Elton John album I ever bought and its Elton at his raw best. Apart from ‘Daniel’ and ‘Crocodile Rock’ there are some other great tracks and Bernie Taupins lyrics are always good to listen to.
4) Paul Simon Graceland 1986.
This album is always a great listen. The African influences are evident throughout and there are some great tracks. Love ‘ Diamonds on the sole of her shoes’ . Bridge over troubled water would be on most peoples all time top ten albums but this must be up there aswell.
3) David Bowie Hunky Dory 1971
Possibly my favourite Bowie album and an early example of his genius. Favourite tracks are ‘Changes’ and’Life on Mars’.
2) Queen A night at the Opera 1975
Visited Queens studio on lake Geneva last year and inspired to include this album which really established the bands reputation. Contains ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘ Your my best friend’.
1) Fleetwood Mac Rumours 1976 again!!
A true classic from start to finish. ‘Dont stop’, ‘Chains’ etc. Absolutely stands the test of time and a copy always in the car ready to go.
