My uncle has been doing a stellar job of introducing me to some of the great albums that were around when he was a music journalist for his student paper back in the early ’70s. We’ve already covered the late ’60s and we’ve currently got up to 1971, though I’m sure there have been a couple of chronological diversions here and there. But this got me thinking. Some of these tracks have the power to conjure up very vivid memories for my uncle and my parents of where they were and what they were doing when they listening to them. And I found myself wondering which albums might have the same effect on me in twenty years time. Below were some which sprang to mind.
I don’t make any claims for (most of) these as being albums which will stand the test of time, but I’m fond of them because they conjure up very particular memories. I’m sure we all have certain albums that can almost magically transport us back into specific moments in our lives. So these are some of mine – for better or worse… Click on the image to be taken to a dedicated page for that album, with the year and my memories about it.
