National Album Day

So, while Max regales us with tales of his sheltered upbringing (he made up for it later), let’s note that it is National Album Day, today: 13 October 2018.

It is great to see this celebrated on the BBC all day, with special mention going to the Mastertapes discussion with Elvis Costello.

Inevitably, this returns us to discussions of lists but let’s allow someone else to do the hard work over at the djtees lists page. The NME best albums list of 1975 looks fantastic and great to see Desire at number one. The Bobster is followed by Bowie, Dr Feelgood, Graham Parker and the Ramones.

What a list, but let’s just celebrate a mutual fave: GP and the Rumour, as revisited in the movie This is 40.
