Mark Rodrigues… Linda McCartney Ram?

Stephen Singleton… With a little help from Paul

Tony Court-holmes… got a lot of them

John Gale… Wow, thats quite a list… A classic year clearly

Mark Gilham…Rather sobering tbh

Peter Thomson… I remember at the time reflecting on how wonderfully timeless all my 1921 albums were.

Pete Prescott… I’ve got a good few of those. I still play them. I wonder long the list will be of today’s classic albums in 50 years and how they would compare. Obviously each generation has their own music but some of these are being listened to by young people today. Some wonderful albums. I’m glad I was lucky enough to have heard (and sometimes seen) them as a teenager.

Graham Sherrington… I have two CD’s in the car Marvin Gaye and Yes both bought in Woolworth’s in RYE.

Mick O’Dowd… I know it has always the older generation downing the music of the youth of the day throughout time but, when I listen to todays music, with only few exceptions, can I see REAL classics in the making. Too over produced so how can they recreate them live without miming? I know this practice has been going on for a great many years and we probably have seem “live” performances that weren’t.

Dave Nattress… Got over half of these on vinyl obviously and then a good few of them on cd’s also. 50 years – almost unbelievable but true. To have really started listening to the pop of the day in about 1963 when I was 10 lived through the rest of the 60’s, the pirate era, 70’s, punk, 80’s and indie, etc. etc. and been to many gigs, done a good few with local bands, and still music is so important- a charmed life indeed!!! A great period to have lived through.

Alan Pepper… Have still got about ten of these, but have seen twice as many slip through my hands in the past. What a great year though !
