........and as for a Compilation Album. Try and dig this one out from 1968..... it's a classic.

ROCK MACHINE I LOVE YOU featuring amongst others...

Grace Slick, Blood Sweat and Tears, Simon and Garfunkel, Leonard Cohen, Taj Mahal, John Simon, Don Ellis and Orchestra, The Byrds, Laura Nyro, Big Brother and the Holding Company and not forgetting JS BACH !!!!!

You don't get much more eclectic than this piece of vinyl Cool


I had never heard of this album until now so I did a search for it. It appears that whoever put this album together randomly selected tracks using the blindfold and pin method. I don't know of any other compilation album that contains such a mix of genres so I'll check out this album myself as there are quite a few tracks I haven't heard before or versions I've not heard.

Sampler albums - even if some of the tracks on them were dire - were a great thing - and I might even go so far as saying that's why the 60s/70s music-listening scene was superior to what we have now.

In that now you have algorithms that say "if you like X we think you'll like Y"...but ultimately that's based on previous listening history.

But with a sampler, unless you were totally driven to distraction and got up to pick the stylus off the vinyl, you had to listen to say Deep Purple followed by the Mike Sammes Singers..and who knows, fans of one might suddenly find new musical horizons in the other.

To keep in the spirit of the thread, a list of 10 favourite 'singer/songwriter' LPs.

In no order...

'Bringin' it all Back Home' : Bob Dylan
'Blue' : Joni Mitchell
'Madcap Laughs' : Syd Barrett
'Zero She Flies' : Al Stewart
'A King at Nightfall' : Pete Atkin
'Christmas and the beads of Sweat' : Laura Nyro
'Imagine' : John Lennon
'Into the Purple Valley' : Ry Cooder
'North Star Grassman and the Raven' : Sandy Denny

Appreciate the last two are interpreters as much as songwriters.

And as I've referred to earlier, almost anything by Mike Nesmith or Nick Drake.

Guess that makes me a child of the late 60's.....

I've just listened to some of the tracks on Rock Machine I Love You, and picked up some artists that I hadn't heard before and some i never want to hear again.

You've captured the joy of samplers in one!

Which ones were the 'never agains' for you?

Intrigued what you'll have made of the United States of America track.

My Name is Jack is John Simon is 3 minutes of my life I won't get back and I wasn't keen on Time by Dino Valenti.

Intrigued what you'll have made of the United States of America track? If you mean the Simon & Garfunkel track then i already have this track in my collection.

Apologies : I was thinking of a different sampler from the same era, which had a strange track from a group calling themselves "United States of America".

Dino Valenti was the lead singer of the then legendary Quicksilver Messenger Service, so I guess got a solo album off that fame - a bit like Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane.

Paul Gambaccini has just revealed the Top 40 best selling albums of all time.

Needless to say none of them made my top 10/12!

James Blunt made the list but David Bowie didn't.....Crazy

3 Albums I'm surprised are not on the list, unless compilations weren't included, are Queen's Greatest Hits (the original), ABBA Gold and Carpenters The Singles 1969 - 1973. These are 3 albums that everyone seems to have or had or you know someone with at least one of the albums.

That's because the program wasn't "the Top 40 best selling albums of all time" but theT Top 40 best selling studio albums of all time, thus excluding compilations.

I was going to mention The Sound of Music which was a UK number 1 for about 300 years but that is a soundtrack and also falls outside the criteria for studio albums.
