        The Idol is one of my fave tracks of all-time. LOVE that song. Even my teenage kids know all the words it gets played that much in our house!

        • Over a year now since this thread, thought I'd come back and show how I'd got on with the recommendations people on here kindly bothered to name check. Will try and cover the ten pages, I've also added a few pictures as we all enjoy looking at records .....lovely lovely records will add some more pictures of the the ones I've not yet found hidden in my collection later, was in a rush as usual.

          I picked up the second marmalade Lp (reflection of the) up recently, and its got one great track on it "Kaleidoscope".

          Picked up the Marmalade 'Reflections' of ebay cheaply enough and their 'Songs' album at my local record fair for £4, heavier feel to this one, both good records . John Fred from the market stall in Watford. The Fortunes LP came from Raves from the graves shop and shortly afterwards I ended up with another copy in amongst a collection, it's not that great, unlike the Idol 45 which I'm still after, going to give it another chance.

It's all good in my book!

            I regret not getting that Turtle Soup LP that sat in my local shop for less than a fiver for a long time. Left that Marmalade (Reflections LP) in a charity for £7 a few years back as well. Also recently left that DBM&T Fresh Ear LP for cheap but can't think where it was.

            Of all the LP's I've picked up from the tips on this thread 'Fresh Ear' is one of the corkers, really surprised as to how good this record is. Great harmonies, long tracks that don't get bogged down and imaginative tunes. Finally found a cheap copy at Reading record fair for a fiver.



            Same can be said for Tremeloes 'Master' which we've discussed on here since this thread. Second row, first LP

              Picked up 'Sheroo' and 'Sweet inspirations' as well as the one above in one hit. Will get back to you when I find something on these.

                [quote=peter sundae;379467]I'm missing 'For Certain because' waiting for a cheap copy to crop up, which it will eventually.

                'Hollies sing Hollies' has been on the deck recently, pretty solid album. After losing Graham Nash and making the 'Hollies sing Dylan' weakish effort this is the album which finds the band back on track for me.

                'Butterfly' - 'Try it' & 'Elevated observations' the stand out tracks for me, but the lyric 'We sat on the shore of the lemonade lake' on the last track (forget what it's called) has me pissing my pants every time I hear it Which is all part of the charm, maybe I have been harsh with that Paul Jones album

                'Distant Light' was a disappointment, need to revisit.

                Paul and barry Ryan Lp looks good.
                quote]






                Still not got 'Hollies sing Dylan' but have picked up 'For Certain because' and The Hollies S/T (not pictured) since, both keepers.

                Do I need the Hollies Dylan LP ? the clip of them singing 'I'll be your baby tonight ' on the Rock & roll years tv clip puts me off.

                  I've waited for a cheap copy of this to show on ebay which it finally did last week, I love a bit of flute Proper prog record this.

'Cellophane Symphony', 'Tommy James' and others I'll try and refresh my memory on later, when I can get across to the shelves to check titles.

                    Sorry for the crappy pic, this band are slightly forgotten these days.

                    Tommy James is a legend- another seriously underrated songwriter. Stuff like 'Kathleen Macarthur' 'I am a tangerine'. The guy could really write a song. I believe he played all the instruments on 'crimson and clover' as well- and of course the original version of 'I'm Alive'

                    The Everly Brothers - Two Yanks in London - very nice LP with backing and tunes from the Hollies - there's fuzz to be found in there folks.

                    Easybeats - Vigil - Sees the group trying to take that difficult stride from pop group to 'please take us seriously folks' territory. Really good stuff on here.

                    Mindbenders - S/T - I've seen this LP priced between £1 and £50 over the years - it shouldn't set you back too much - proper stomping pop LP with a killer instrumental track buried away on there. I want their other one if anyone has a spare?

                    I also need to revisit that Mindbenders LP....wish my records weren't boxed
                    I don't recall it being of the quality of the one Towny (track on Tinsel Towny)and Craig own but I'd like to be proven wrong.

                    ?


                    The Mindbenders LP seems popular on here


                    Tommy James 'Cellophane symphony' is indeed a great album, again found very cheaply at a record fair.

                    Still intrigued and after The Easybeats LP 'Vigil' after picking up a nice 45 by them the other day, title escapes me will edit in the morning.

                    EDIT Easybeats track 'Come in you'll get pneumonia' is this from 'Vigil' LP ?

                    • Has this been mentioned, probably very well know. Love Groovin but there are really great tracks on this. It's Love, A Girl Like You, Sueno, I love it all.

                              His first LP shown in picture has some good up tempo tunes and is worth getting, I know a few people have mentioned liking the 'My baby left me 45, a few more on here like this.

                              • What are the other Savoy Brown LPs like - I only have the 'Outside looking In' one - I like most of it just not the lumpy blues bits.
