    Default LPs in Sainsbury's

    The phrase. That's Hank Marvin didn't come about by accident. Hank and cliff Richard were common when I was young


    I know it's used meaning starving but was also used as rank

    From Wikipedia: (ok, you can’t take Wikipedia as gospel, but even so...)

    Marvin influenced many British rock guitarists, including Andy Summers, Syd Barrett, George Harrison,[12]Eric Clapton,[12]David Gilmour,[12]Brian May,[13]Mark Knopfler,[12][14]Peter Frampton,[15]Steve Howe,[16]Roy Wood,[17]Tony Iommi,[18]Pete Townshend,[19]Ritchie Blackmore and Jeff Beck.[20]. Australian guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel has also paid hommage to Marvin on various recordings.

    No idea who Tommy Emmanuel is, but the rest of them are vaguely familiar!

    That would be about 1977.
    I'm going back to 1963 - 'Frightened City' was the very first single I bought (at 6/3 (= 32.5p)! Might still have it somewhere.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    The only music I really like pre 1967 is some jazz and some big band stuff. And Sinatra. The rest is either too tame or too 'of its time' for me.

    Yes - but I was 13 at the time. Loathed big band jazz and still do.

    Vast tracts of my record collection is 'of it's time' as of the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s. And I suppose the same could be said of the American
    Negro Blues of the '30s and '40s.

    1967 does seem to be a bit of a turning point for me too but it did get me thinking about the best pre 1967 albums I like, only just scraping in but Pet Sounds and John Mayall's Beano album spring to mind. Probably lots more if I give it a bit more thought.

    Revolver is one of the more obvious ones I've missed, again 66 so only scraping in.

    So how do they decide which age demographic of fathers to pitch to?

    Marco.
    The whole concept of age stereotyping frankly terrifies me. I have an awful image of myself in thirty years time aged 96 sitting in a decrepit group of drooling geriatric baby-boomers whilst some eager millennial plays the Bay City Rollers and David Cassidy to us in the fond hope that they’ll dredge up happy memories of our lost youth and reconnect us to reality.

    What about 'Rubber Soul' and some of the early Stones?
