Today, I do not own BJH, The Hollies or Lou Reed.
Pretty much got the Moody Blues the day of release, not knowing at the time that it constituted a full set of original MB LP’s. Hawkwind were baffling…are they a British or German band? I do like this album a lot. I was certain Can were German, and pretty much got this one straight away, US release pending. I have the Uriah Heep, but a US Mercury copy. I really like the Slade album in 2012, but I didn’t buy it until 2007 or so. Gary in NZ always told me to get Joni Mitchell LP’s, and I duly got this one, but am not familiar with it.
