Ending the week on a favourite note. 

My musical awakening seemed to happen in 1971.  Rachel lived next door and was six or seven years older than me and wild.  I heard this record first in her bedroom which was full of exciting things.  I still love this record, especially that groan.  Not sure I realised quite what the record was about when I bought it with precious pocket money.  My first album was called Hot Hits 4 and had a woman on the front in a shocking state of undress.    It included songs such as “Is this the way to Amarillo (every night I hug my pillow)” and “My Sweet Lord”.  How I loved that record too.
