Just had a skim through this thread. I have songs by various groups that have great memories. For example Fleetwood Mac.

My boss had a Ginetta G15 ( with a breathed on 1000cc engine from memory) and we used to go out on business from leicester to Burton on Trent via the back roads with that belting out of the speakers. I thought it was fantastic as we were being paid too.

I couldn't afford to buy Arthur Brown's "Fire" so used to listen to it in music shop booths.

Saw loads of great groups live . Roxy Music three times. The first was just after they released Virginia Plain and the venue (Scarborough Penthouse) doubled their fee to I think £200 as they had been booked earlier and the gig was postponed. That would be 1972.

Yes, 1968 and one of my purchases as everyone was playing it, and his Top Of The Pops performance impressed us youngsters!  Loved it when he set himself on fire; what an act! ;D ;D ;D ;)

My original purchase is still in my Singles collection, along with so many others you mention like Fleetwood Mac with Albatross 8) 8) ;)

Ah yes....the crazy world of Arthur Brown.

I thought Spirit in the sky was great when I first heard it some time around 1969. :y

Ah yes, them.  They were the start of bands being "manufactured" instead of coming up from the clubs and pubs and travelling around in a van. A bad move  :o

On a different note. Its hard to beat a good ballad. Especially if its sung by Don Henley.  8)

And one of the greatest ballads of them all.

I was never really interested in mainstream pop music and quickly discovered rock music and blues where I bought the album Tupelo Blues by John Lee Hooker where a friend needed the money and progressed to Cream who were three exceptional musicians, Ten Years After where Alvin Lee is an exceptional guitarist and then on to heavy rock. When I first heard Santana, Black Sabbath and Led Zepplin I knew I had found the music for me. Got to see quite a few bands live during my college days. These days although I love listening to heavy rock, I tend to listen to more blues music as it has more soul and feeling. Our of the three kings Albert 'the velvet bulldozer' King is my favourite. I've always really enjoyed blues-rock groups. The guitarists Rory Gallagher, Gary Moore and Steve Ray Vaughan are three of my favourites. There are lots of really excellent blues guitarists but Buddy Guy really stands out as somebody different.

Gary Moore came from a couple of miles down the road from me. He was also left handed but played guitar right handed, same as me.
He was one of the greatest guitarists ever to pick up a guitar - and unfortunately for me, that's where the similarities end.  ;D
I got to see him about 10 years ago in a tiny, 200 person, venue in London. I was stood so close to the stage he stood on my hand at one point. An incredible guitarist, and a great loss.
I was a latecomer to Stevie Ray Vaughan. I wrote him off as a Hendrix tribute act. That was a big mistake on my part, and I discovered him properly about 5 years ago when I saw this.

The night he died he had just played a gig with Clapton and Buddy guy. Clapton said he didn't watch Stevies set, because if he had he would have done a runner, legged it. He couldn't face having to follow him if he had just watched him perform. He was that good.

They said he was burnt out in the 70,s. This 1996.  :)

At last I have been able to watch this on my PC, rather than ipad that wouldn't load it! ::) ::)

What a fantastic performance Migv6 which backs up everything I have ever said about EC.  He is the God of Blues in the UK (and the World?); always has been , always will be.  He talks with that guitar.  Maybe that recording was 20 years ago, but what is time in music?  I still love Beethoven and  Tchaikovsky of 200+ years ago; Chuck Berry and Elvis of 60 years ago are still great; Clapton is as immortal and even in 100 years time they will be saying what a genuius he was! :-* :-* :-* 8) 8) 8)

The Eagles was the one (with Led Zeppelin) saving grace of the 1970's onwards, and I still love their Hotel California amoungst many of their songs :y :y

This is a great video of Steve Ray Vaughan and Albert King jamming together.
