Chris Giles… I loved this LP ..one of the best, I thought of the Island samplers and have still got it

Dave Nattress… I remember this one well, a couple of friends had it. Stand out track for me – first time I heard it was “Oh I Wept” by Free (off Fire and Water). Already had Tons of Sobs and Free but got F & W on vinyl then and on musicassette for the Ford Anglia I had back then! Still got both as well as the first edition, remaster and special edition – and pretty much everything Free did. Free what a fabulous unit. Paul Kossoff (RIP) such unique guitar work. Actually the first time I heard many of these artists!

Martin Stoggell… The artwork you got on those big covers.

Pete Fisher… I had You Can All Join In and Nice Enough To Eat, but I don’t think I had this Island compilation – looks great…http://www.45worlds.com/vinyl/album/idp1

Chris Jolly… I still have this double album Pete… It’s great!

Alan Newman… I was 13 in 1970 when my big bro lent me this to say this what real music sounds like

Nick Shute… Thunderbuck Ram!!!…got this then went straight back to the shop and got Mad Shadows!!…these samplers were brilliant for introducing people to new releases cheaply…worked for all! Two other standout samplers that spring to mind…”el pea” and “fill your head with rock”

Jon McCallion… Still have it good album

Sam Rosewell… Think I might have Dad’s copy somewhere…

Chris Meachen… Still got this, nice enough to eat, and one called island people..

Richard Stack… Still have this album. Still sounds good.

Paul Huggett… I used to buy compilation albums then to get a bit of variety for not much money , Rock Machine etc and those Island ones Pete mentions, but missed that one! Some of them have been recreated as playlists on Spotify by the way, which as mine are long gone was good to discover.
