Hi Guys,

Being a bit of a girly swot I must confess to being a reader of the Observer (British Sunday broadsheet - left of centre - for those of you who don't know). Each month they have a music supplement. This month they polled a load of musicians and industry people for their favourite albums and compiled them into a top 100. Brian particpated...

1 - Abbey Road - the Beatles
2 - Led Zepplin - Led Zepplin
3 - Fire and Water - Free
4 - Temperance Seven - Temperance Seven
5 - Gloriana - The Courtly Dances - Julian Bream
6 - Blues Breakers - John Mayall with Eric Clapton
7 - Truth - Jeff Beck
8 - Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
9 - It's All About - Spooky Tooth
10 - Mott - Mott the Hoople

The strangest thing about the top 100 list though is the total absence of Queen....

Nicki

Reading the Observer, of all things, ain't a sign of being a 'swot', as you put it. On the contrary, it is a sign that your political views are shallow, your world outlook inhibited and your common sense practically non-existent.

However, as you're a bit of a sort, I'll forgive you. And thanks for the list.

I don't believe that this could possibly be Brian's list.

There's not one single Hendrix album included.

WHy Mr Flashman Sir - I haven't been called a "bit of a sort" for many years now...

Indeed my political views are shallow, and as you rightly point out I have no common sense. However the Observer is fairly good at lining my cat's litter tray, and for using to clean the windows.

I was shocked by Brian's list too - there ain't an album on there less than 30 years old!!! No wonder we only ever get remakes of WWRY - he hasn't heard any new music since March 12 1992

That's my girl! And you're definitely a sort in my book. I'll lend it you sometime.
