Gilbert O'Sullivan....320 Kbps

This is Gilbert's first and best L/P.....IMHO !!!!!....It contains two of his best songs which is featured below on a Promo Video from early 70's....the lyrics are great and very clever.....A couple of the tracks still don't make much sense to me even now after not hearing it for at least 10 years....YES another of my forgotten gems which i intend to listen to very carefully and try to make sense of ""Susan Van Heusan" and "Houdini Said" the "Permissive Twit" track also very clever lyrics.....Shame we don't hear more of him....wonder if he's still around and working....I feel a "Google" moment coming on !!......So folks out there who may not have heard of him give him a listen !!

1. Intro/January Git
2. Bye Bye
3. Permissive Twit
4. Matrimony
5. Independent Air
6. Nothing Rhymed

1. Too Much Attention

James Taylor....320 Kbps

I think that this L/P was about the first one from James Taylor in the early 70's....he certainly looks different these days still I reckon we all must do after 30 odd years !!....he has quite a few well known  backing singers on this one....Now who's heard of "Carol King" and "Carly Simon" not forgetting "Linda Ronstadt " !!! Don't all shout at once my speakers wont take it !!!.....Back to the record...most of the tracks James wrote himself and the last 6 tracks are all joined gaps in the tracks !!!..soooooooo listen to a good chunk of 70's nostalgia music !!

1. One Man Parade
2. Nobody But You
3. Chilli Dog
4. Fool For You
5. Instrumental 1
6. New Tune
7. Back On The Street Again
8. Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight

1. Woh Don't You Know
2. One Morning In May
