Blimey! I'd completely forgotten about this one. I used to own that 'Briar Hill' compilation, but like a fool I let it go, along with other great stuff, when financial times were hard. Good to hear 'High' again.
@The Swede: Sorry you had to part with the compilation. I haven’t got the singles box, I’m guessing most of the tracks are on youtube
Being a lady "blogger of a certain age" (ouch) I had never heard of Choo Choo Train, but thanks for sharing!!
@Alyson: I just posted a few more from an 80s compilation today. Sorry if I offended anyone, was not my intention. If you re-read my comment at Rols blog, I was actually praising over 40s for their groundedness and having a go at younger bloggers for their tendency to blog short-term and cut ties. It’s something I’ve been thinking about. Over 40s seem to know what they want and what they like. Whereas younger bloggers tend to treat a blog as a phase, moving on to the next thing, often in an abrupt manner. Treating us bloggers as disposable friends, which I find hurtful. Such is the internet age.
It's ok Chris I wasn't offended and am just teasing you really as found it quite funny. As for the over 40 (50?) bloggers, it's probably that we have a bit more time now for the fun stuff in life - There is absolutely no way I could have put in the number of hours I put into my blog when I was in my 40s as had a school age child, a full-time job and hubby's business to administer. Means of course that our/my record choices are usually from a slightly earlier period than yours but quality will out and I always say that I don't like any particular genre/style of music, I like quality music. Same goes for the films of course which you also specialise in - Classics are classic for a reason - they have stood the test of time and will always appeal to a new generation of audiences as they get old enough to appreciate them. Thanks for the reply though - You are definitely off the hook!!
@Alyson: Must be nice to have a bit of extra time. Work can be so all-consuming at times. Glad you saw the funny side and for letting me off the hook! Neil Hannon introduced me to that phrase in his "A Lady of a Certain Age". Great song.Not sure what the future holds for my blog, but I'll continue with the two (album+film) monthly roundups at least.
What do you think about the post? I look forward to hearing from you. Rest assured I will reply soon.
