Starting off today with Rory and the boys. Excellent albums.

Indeed - particularly On the Boards

They were great live - possibly Rory's best ever rhythm section

Great band, great guitarist, wouldn't know a decent tune if it slapped him in the face.

A really good album

I just don't understand Slider et alia's dislike for The Pie

Cloth-eared fools? You need cloth ears, or at least something over your ears to shut out the unpleasant racket Marriott and co. came up with after this album. This was definitely one of their better ones, anything after this is just excruciating. Not only that, their records had some of the worst covers in the history of recorded music.

If ever a singer lost his way, sadly it was Marriot. He should have worked it out with the Small Faces.

I agree with you about Marriott losing his way. It is a great tragedy.

I differ over the value of the music. All the Frampton albums are worth a listen, so Rock On and Performance: Rockin' The Fillmore as well.

After that it is definitely diminishing returns, with a few gems to be uncovered by the hardy explorer:




[The above has a publicity photo for the wrong lineup - should be the reformed 1980 lineup with Bobby Tench, Anthony Sooty Jones joining Marriott and Shirley. ]

Tend to agree with you slightbreeze with regard to his solo work but these two albums are pretty good and there is a semblance of a few tunes in there. Also played Deuce yesterday and it was lacking, sadly, he didn't really didn't have much of a voice.

This is rather good and, of the ones available on streaming, almost exclusively new names to me. (Only 27 tracks on the Spotify version.)

I must be the only person in the world that has seen Sam Apple Pie four times!

They were always supporting bigger acts at the John Peel Show and The Dagenham Roundhouse - two venues I frequented regularly 1969-1973/74

I was never that impressed but now might be the time for a revisit/reassessment

A cracking album! Authentic sounds plus great songs. The follow up "Volcano" sounded fine to my cloth ears, but reviews were less than favourable. Never heard the third "Hot motion"

Naysayers must admit that if that banner instead read 'AUTHORITY - Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel', and the label was Some Bizarre instead of A & M, that cover would be considered both seminal and robust by an awful lot of ill-advised people, who would wear it proudly on T-shirts to nightclubs we would consider to resemble the seventh circle of hell.

Yes, I played the 1st one yesterday as well. Picked out a couple of bands who have full albums on Spotify, could probably have done a dozen more but there's plenty of time for all that.... :D

2 Dick Roberts and the Troubled Minds - Carpet Man 2:42
3 The 31 Flavors - Free Fuzz 2:14
4 Happy Medium - Annabelle Lee 2:28
5 The Raggamuffins - Parade of Uncertainty 4:02
6 Sweet Smoke - Mary Jane Is to Love 2:11
7 Sven Libaek - Ride the Wind Away 3:03
8 Kevin McCann - What a Scene 2:13
9 Nineteen Eighty Seven - Mr. John 2:24
10 The Groove - Merry-Go-Round 2:27
11 The Executives - Bad Reputation 2:02
12 The Staccatos - Catch the Love Parade 2:32
13 Ellen Janov - Portobello Road 2:47
14 Happy Medium - Fair One 2:36

The album itself isn't on Spotify but someone has generated a playlist with 51 tracks taken from it, so have added that to my playlist now. Cheers!

Indeed, but have you got "Hot Motion"? (the album and not a medical condition). If you do, I'd be very interested in your view, as I don't own it

Oddly enough I bought it really cheaply yesterday! Waiting for it to arrive should be here tomorrow I think.

I'll let you know, it's supposed to be more of a return to what their first was like, I understand.

Oddly enough C. I played this on Monday along with Revolver, having watched 3,2,1 - McCartney. Don't really need any excuse to play either of these gems though.
