    not so much 'I guess that's why they call it the blues', as it gives me the shits somehow.
    there's plenty of great stuff by ej.

    Excellent stuff - I can't say I have the emotional space for it now, but in the 70s his music was often a relief if you found yourself having to listen to daytime Radio 1.

    geminisnake a complex mass of conflicting ideas

    I liked quite a bit of his early 70s stuff. Favourite is probably Crocodile Rock.

    I was at the time obsessed by passengers.

    I think he actually looks cool in this video. I just watched it now for the first time

  20. I’m not particularly a fan and have never bought or listened regularly to any of his music. He’s a bit like Rod Stewart in that respect: he’s part of the U.K. fabric of music that would create a gaping hole if they weren’t there, regardless of being a fan.

    Sasaferrato Grateful for what I have.

    I've been a fan since 1969, between then and now, he has produced some absolute gems, and some utter dross, in common with most musicians with a career of this length.

    Individual tracks are almost too numerous to name. but:

    60 Years on
    Where to now St. Peter
    Indian Sunset
    Love song
    Holiday Inn
    Tiny Dancer
    Burn down the mission
    Funeral for a friend/love lies bleeding (I used to play that whilst blazing along single track roads at insane speeds :oops:)
    Your song

    etc etc etc...

    I am surprised no one has suggested this as his all time best.
