I recall hearing Writing On The Wall played on my local Hastings NZ radio one Saturday afternoon, probably in 1978. That prompted me to by the album. My local record shop, run by an old school friend, ...

I have just listened to this again for the first time in a couple of years. I like this album because of the variety of sounds and songs. Vocals, most arrangements and Tony Hicks' brilliant guitar wor ...

The great thing about this forum is the varied opinions from the varied fans. The Hollies could certainly rock it as many of their songs show (Russian Roulette, 48 Hour Parole, Trans-Atlantic Westboun ...

It was about 1974 or 1975 that I met Eric Sykes. In Napier, New Zealand, I had put my motorcycle in for a scheduled service one Saturday morning. I was wandering around the streets when I saw someone ...

I am a big Doctor Who fan from the days of William Hartnell. The current Doctor Who is great and rates very well on ABC (public broadcaster) here in Australia. As for Torchwood it was picked up by com ...

Ray,
I don't know how the album did. I was about 16 or 17 at the time and album charts were not something I took any notice of. I was buying singles rather than albums. I did not get Romany until abo ...

Not their greatest album but still a good one. When this came out I was living in New Zealand. There was a video clip of Magic Woman Touch. This was before dedicated programmes for such things and it ...

Doctor Who has been around since the early 1960s. He travelled in time & space, with companions, in a time machine disguised as a police call box. I am sure it started as a TV series then went int ...
