    Edoardo Bennato: Italiani

    This would be a really good Italian national anthem - much better than the official one!

    Pure nostalgia, I always get a little tear in the corner of my eye when I play this album - it reminds me of many happy times spent in and around Durham/Newcastle in my mid/late teens and of friends and relations many of whom are no longer with us.
    One of those albums that has a tale or two attached to every song.


    Lindisfarne - Nicely Out of Tune.
