Echos Myron - one of about 25 million pop delights from the gifted head of Mr Pollard - who true to form, is releasing two new records in the next few weeks I believe.

Well I confess I only know Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes), but I loved it and hearing it now zaps me instantly back to third & fourth grades, so I still love it.

The quick response would be Mr. Blue Sky, but Telephone Line does the same thing for me that 'Rosemary' does for you, MG.

Fun to sing out loud while driving, I also love the background vocals playing against David Johansen's singing

Bad Medicine is not a bad track, Elvis praised it and Jon is probably still grateful. Jon got neatly skewered by Hannah Pool recently in the Guardian, do check it out

Shake Me, Wake Me (When Its Over) ..... was just listening to this last night, fantastic slice of motown magic. Right up there with Smokey and the Miracles in my book.

You Need Loving - the very Willie Dixon song that got Page&Plant in trouble, and if you've heard Marriott's over the top vocal on this version you'll know that Robert must have admired him.

I've never been a BJB fan in terms of music, but he seems like a decent guy, and this journalist seemed like an ass-monkey to me.

Yes, The Guardian pulled bit of a fast one on Bon sending a smartarse like Hannah along, still I enjoyed the exchange, I'm sure Bon has had to suffer worse.
Never heard of Kate Campbell, though a quick google got me her intriguing bio, and I've ordered her latest album, so thanks for the tip, migdd.

The incredibly beautiful 'You Are So Young' off of Rainy Day Music. The melody is sumptious, the delivery is heartbreaking, and the whole thing fits perfect with the album title. If you haven't listened to this one, check it out.

Love Plus One. Annoying but effective chart pop. The cricket jumpers, silly socks and guitars on nipples were all a bit much, but he could knock out a good tune. I think Anna was his mum's name, and so 'Grey Anna grey Anna' is perhaps a comment on her hair. Does this qualify as it's Haircut 100? I don't know his solo stuff, though I've seen the odd favourable review.
