Thanks Gary, I missed on a lot of names having my youth behind the iron curtain but feel motivated to upgrade my music tastes and depth. Your words flow easy, hit hard and settle in deep :) M.

Thank you M! All these artists were the soundtrack of my youth and I've spent the last couple of years buying all their vinyl again so I can listen to how the music sounded back when.. in all its complete scratched vinyl rawness. :) Cheers - Gary

Youtube is cheaper & readily available Gary one of the plusses of the modern world of the tablet over the jukebox(why was it (a large radiogram)called that?

There's a whole anthology there waiting to be written Brian. I was debating buying a jukebox at one point but it would have got in the way of our 3 piece suite. :) Cheers - Gary

What a fantastic rhyme of rock 'n roll greats! The only other name I'd love to see included is Dusty Springfield. How I loved her distinctive voice. She also lived in our neighbourhood for awhile in the early 80's before I settled here. A strong salute to your remarkable skill Gary. Best wishes. Be well. Brian

Wow!! Dusty Springfield. Brilliant singer. I bought her album "A Girl Called Dusty" not long back! Thanks for your comments Brian. You've set me a task now ..I'll think on about adding Dusty. I've written similar poems on PS about TV (TV Times) and types of sweets /Candy (For All The Sweet Lovers) I enjoyed writing them. Thanks again Brian! Cheers - Gary

Hi Sam! Thanks for the comments. The poem is basically the soundtrack of my life. I have a lot of vinyl in my house and would love an old jukebox for some of it but..no room! :) Cheers - Gary

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. On the vinyl front, all the old classics have been re-released and are regularly in the Album charts...so there's hope for my poetry yet! :)
