Ooh, good one.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Sorry all - I must be going mad!

Every time I see the cover I can feel the texture of the LP cover (likewise Fairport Full House)

I miss LP covers

Have started playing John Barleycorn - great groove to start off proceedings.

Yes, sorry JJ


Originally intended as a Winwood solo album after the band had disbanded

My recollection is that Steve got ill (TB) and had to rely on his old mates Jim and Chris....

This led to a reunion (minus Mason)

A much better band to my ears - as much as I lovce Dave and his solo albums

Yes - the two I mention had a matt (non glossy feel) like recycled paper these days - I can smell them too!

Great piano from Steve - one of my mega-heroes!


Straight into Freedom Fighter - awesome

And on to the wonderful Freedom Rider.



Mr Wood's is an impressive musician - up there with Pete Zorn.

*chink*

Back in 1970 I had four albums on constant roatation for about 6 months:

If - If
Audience - Friends Friend's Friend
Traffic - John Barleycorn
Full House - Fairport Convention




Fantastic flute duet!

Incredible

Should start a thread on the feel of album sleeves - I'd be casting my vote for matt too. Lindisfarne's Nicely Out of Tune feels good, tho' slightly thin.

Great album choice!

1970 was a bit too soon for me to own any albums - another couple of years to go.

There's advantages to being old!

Empty Pages - every track is a corker

The piano/organ solo and interplay is just delightful

An album full of music
