Jethro Tull: Minstrel in the Gallery




Great stuff Fergus! I saw them live in concert at the Albert Hall in London in my early youth.

NP:



Mike Oldfield - Ommadawn


For a first listen - I like it so far; new age... :D

One of his best I think. I also like the more recent 'Return to Ommadawn'.

I would say that was quite the event Jeffrey and a lasting impression and memory.

Donovan: 7-Tease



A favourite of mine.

I never really think of Donovan beyond "Mellow Yellow" and "Sunshine Superman." He seems like one of those who's forever locked into the Sixties. What's his later music like?

That is a particular favourite of mine; probably the favourite of the Oldfield albums that I own.

Will definetely be listening to Ommadawn again - will check out the Return to Ommadawn soon too.

Peter Skellern: Skellern





The dulcet tones of Skellern are wonderfully fused with a colliery band as part of the musical arrangements.

His music is always melodic and I like the way that his songs almost always tell a story. I suppose he is one of those locked into the sixties and seventies but that is my vintage. I grew up playing and singing his music and it has always stayed with me. I just enjoy listening to his music.
