With our partners off out to a 50’s event at the National Media Museum we had a little impromptu record club, and since we were left holding the baby, used that as the theme.
From the selection of records we brought along we listened to:
- Another side of Bob Dylan
- Phil Spector – 1958-1969 [Box set]
- B.B. King – From the Beginning
- Captain Beafheart – Spotlight Kid
…not necessarily in that order…
Surprisingly few Dylan fans in the room, so this was chosen as a gentle introduction for non-believers.
This is a box set that Dave picked up in his early 20’s, discovering the joy of the ‘wall of sound’.
Just a great album. Started the debate about double albums and box sets, so we only played one of the two discs.
An album to introduce others to the magic of Captain Beefheart?
Dave says: “I was really pleased to hear ‘Click Clack’, a track that I’ve come to love thanks to John Peel.”
