Quite honestly, I am not TOTALLY sure....but,

 

I ordered this single I bought in 1971, an import

on ATCO from the USA- cost a fortune back then.... heard it on AFN (American Forces Network, who many years later I did some VO work for!!!! small world), saved up my pocket

money for weeks to buy it!

 

Well, this was it- and I STILL LOVE IT!!!

That's a good question I don't remember. It was some time in the 60's. Here's a list that might of been the first, Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix , Rolling Stones, Jethro Tull, James Gang, Arlo Guthrie, Janis Joplin and anyone else from that era :) take your pick.

 

Wasn't my first but I remember buying Big Bambu by Cheech & Chong lol and laughing :rolleyes:

 

WOW!!! flash backs looking them up and looking at the album covers :retard:

 

Now I want to dig out my old albums and 45's lol

First record bought for me was Pilot - January

 

First records I bought were Rain - Status Quo and Squeezebox - The Who. There was a discount voucher in one of the old music papers (Sounds or NME, I forget now) which gave you a hefty reduction at WHSmiths, so off I trotted. Still got all three records!

Nice stuff! "Mama'a got a squeezebox, and Daddy never sleeps at night!"

 

I remember some bloke slagging me off for playing January by Pilot on a station called OMR!

They later joined Alan Parsons I believe?

Was one of their other singles "Smile" I am trying to remember?

 

January=Great song! and from memory it was released in...............January!

You got it Mr Burton!

 

According to Wikipedia, Alan Parsons produced January. We've got a CD of their stuff here, hardly a greatest hits, but good enough. My stepmum was torn between buying me January or something by The Wombles, am I glad she opted for Pilot!

 

Just A Smile was one of Pilot's other well known tracks, I like it anyway!

Good Question ...

I recall an artist James Allen (or Allan) ... but I forgot the songtitle

The cover of this vinyl single was purple/blue with the artist on the leftside and the Tower Bridge into the background

 

Maybe Arthur reminds something of these details ... (??)

I bought that first record ... somewhere in 1967 / 1968 ... Yes guys .. I was at that time "just" 7 > 8 years old

I guess you know now the reason why I'm addicted to music :)

 

I don't have a clue if that track should excist as mp3 ... anyway .. the mp3 would be welcome :kiss:

That means absolutely nothing to me I am afraid?

You may be referring to a picture sleeve released on the continent. They were very rare in the UK back then.

For some strange reason, I don't know why- I feel you may mean Richard Barnes?

Take a look here http://www.45cat.com/artist/richard-barnes and you tube, of course.

 

We MUST solve this mystery my dear Poirot!
