Yes (excuse the pun)- I should have noticed that.

I did think about including the CA album because I thought it might be just you and me rooting for it!

Of the forty five of these albums that I own, using the premise that they were all lost due to some disaster or other these five would be the ones I would buy/procure A.S.A.P.

Who - Who's next
Stones - Sticky
Bowie - Hunky Dory
Floyd - Meddle
Traffic - Low Spark


The other forty would soon follow.


Here's an interesting list for 1971

Yes - Fragile
Four-Way Street
Meddle

If Genesis - Nursery Cryme was there it would replace four Way Street

The Yes Album was released in 1970 in the UK? I've never heard this before. Link?

That's what I thought. I was telling Charlie O the other day that I don't know why I'm so anal about release dates, but there ya go.

On the copy I'm holding in my hand the cover says Autumn 1970, the record (original) 1971. Go figure.

Interesting.

It was certainly recorded in autumn 1970

And yes, the Fillmore Humble Pie album is a corker...

Or is it a ‘gas’....?
