I love Welcome to the Machine from Wish You Were Here, but the rest of album just doesn’t hold together very well for me. I certainly could never count as a favorite Floyd album because of this.
Yes, but I agree with you about 'echoes'.

The Beatles: Abbey Road




I walked over that Zebra Crossing a year ago. Odd how things remain with you - I came home from school one day, as a teenager, and found a copy of Abbey Road on my bed, when it first came out. My mother had bought it for me and it wasn't my birthday. One of my favourite Beatles albums together with the White Album and Sargent Pepper.

It most certainly is, that is for sure. I know that it is something of a cliche but that album genuinely was a soundtrack to my late teens. I also have an early copy of the vinyl release which is now very well played!

What a lovely thing for your mother to have done.

Nice!

I have the earliest CD, pressed in Japan. I plan to pull it out soon and give it a spin.

Yes, it was and it has stayed with me ever since. I bought a CD copy of it for my daughter a while back, so I guess that things have come full circle!

Quality on all fronts. Happy listening.
