I loved just looking at all those singles. Before picture covers you'd get to know Parlophone on a black label with a green cover, Columbia (another EMI label - not CBS) black with green cover and later red, Phillips a blue label with blue and white wavy lines etc etc etc...........

The record sounds like a prototype for Telstar,perhaps?

Umm, maybe; but that's just typical of Joe Meek's work.

If you haven't seen it, watch out for "Telstar: The Joe Meek Story" - brilliant film.

You're so right Dave, I can spot a label from 50 yards. Decca was one of my favourites - Blue disc in an orange/white stripe sleeve, SO 1960s

We had some fabulous British guitar bands in the early/mid 60s, a genre that faded somewhat, which is a shame. Thank heavens I kept all my 45s!

I think I'll stick one up on here occasionally. :) Let other people remember or hear what they were missing.

Now here's another one that the BBC banned, because? It's "ripped off", in their eyes, from the classics. This one is from Swan Lake, so the title I always found rather amusing, and of course, the Beeb yet again unwittingly gave it publicity, although it didn't rise that far up the charts.
BUT it's always on my multi-change 1960s record player as I never tire of it. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you "Saturday Night at the Duck Pond", by The Cougars. Dig it Man Cool

OR for better sound and video

I always like the Huey Morgan show on Saturdays on BBC6 Music. A good mix of funk, jazz, rock, punk, pop - all sorts and invariably educational. He is enlightening.

Paul McCartney, Ram. It's one of those albums that seems to get better with repeated listening. Grower and all that.
