You sound too much like we played similar tunes or listen to them on the Juke box but I can remember my first , Fats Domino, and if he is not on your list , I am older than you or you will be put in detention, old school style.

Cheers Reggae :) The very first single I bought was "Moon River" by Greyhound. It was a Top 10 UK hit in 1971. I was 10. I don't have any Fats Domino vinyl but loved his 'Blueberry Hill'..particularly how it was used on the soundtrack of Bowie's film ' The Man Who Fell To Earth" Cheers :) Gary

I don't think you missed anyone, Cary! The 60's were something else, weren't they?! Peace, Gershon

I love the music of the sixties Gershon and the seventies..and a bit from the eighties..and not so much from the nineties..and I don't have any time for the music today..:) I've come to the conclusion that the music you grow up with stays with you for life. Cheers :) Gary

Thank you Brian! I really appreciate your visit and comments. It's only been a few days and already I miss your contests - they encouraged me to keep going and not to compromise in order to please the judge. :) On the vinyl front, all the old classics have been re-released and are regularly in the Album there's hope for my poetry yet! :)
