    I've been watching some episodes of Monty Python and The Sweeney on TV. A wave of 1970s nostalgia came over me. You see, I left England in the mid 70s two months before my tenth birthday. I remember England well, and it's 1970s England I remember, that's how I remember England to be. To compliment my 1970s television I've been listening to the following five albums this week.

    Emerson, Lake and Palmer debut album released six days before my fifth birthday

    Did you also buy Frank Zappa for President? I'm curious about the vocal version of Amnerika, probably my favorite Zappa composition.

    Excentrifugal Forz is on the original album, Apostrophe. It's the short tune where Frank is playing fretless guitar on the intro. Energy Frontier is an alternate title for Down In De Dew, of which a short version was released on the Lather album. And it also encompasses the instrumental title track. Anyway, if you get the CD, Simon Prentis explains everything in his excellent liner notes.

    Love the cover photo on this one! I don't listen to this band much, but I like a few of their albums. Too bad the record company thinks loud, bright and brittle is the way to master albums that sounded great on vinyl.

    This took me back to being a pupil at my first primary school, when I played it earlier.

    For the first 40 seconds his voice sounds like Ian Hunter's. Had never noticed that.

    Nice cover.

    I don't know any of their albums but when bands like ELO and Supertramp hit the charts and became popular in our discotheque is when I said goodbye to rock/pop music for several years. Supertramp was known in our circles as Super-ramp (in Dutch; it means Superdisaster in English). Not long after that popular culture was dominated by the Eagles and Gerry Rafferty over here, which confirmed my choice. Of course this is my 16 year old self speaking. As I said I haven't listened to any of their albums.

    Noddy Holder had one of the most underrated voices in rock. Terrific singer. You only realise how good he was when you try and sing his songs. Tempted to go and see Ian Hunter for one last time in November, when he plays Glasgow.

    I haven't acquired it yet. Is it any good?

    Got my tickets to see these, when they play Manchester in November

    A strange mixture: Finnish group, playing bluegrass covers of heavy rock
    Sounds as though it wouldn't work, I think they are great, as well as good fun
