I’m not, nor ever have been, a ‘disco’ type of chap. I was always a GLAM  and, later, a PUNK music supporter.

However, inspired by a thread on another music forum, I’ve recently been listening to:

George McCrae - It’s Been So Long
K C & the Sunshine Band - Get Down Tonight
Lipps Inc - Funky Town
Donna Summer - I Feel Love
Blondie - Heart Of Glass
Van Mccoy - The Hustle
Bee Gees - Stayin’ Alive
Kiss - I Was Made For Lovin’ You
The Trammps - Hold Back The Night
K C & the Sunshine Band - That’s The Way

Disco certainly has its classics and these 10 are the cream.

Anderson Rabin & Wakeman, 'Live At The Apollo' (in Manchester). Lively run-through of some marvellous Yes songs. Rabin injects some much needed freshness into the older material.

Forgot to respond. As a teenager I was introduced to 'Yes' by my  much elder sister. Fortunately for me (and unfortunate for her fiance who had to attend a presentation at the University where he got his degree) I was able to see the original line up at the Free Trade Hall i Manchester. The music was absolutely brilliant loud but not so loud that you had to walk out as we had to a few years later when we all went to watch Uriah Heap at the same venue. We had to leave after 20 minutes, the pyramids of 15 speakers on either side of the stage penetrating our gut after a heavy meal (enough information on that!). When we walked out we were 'deafened' by the silence. Always been a fan of Jon and Vangelis. But I wanted to go down a different route from Yes and that's how I started on my journey with Genesis, beginning with 'And then there were three ...' and working my way backwards to the early stuff when Peter Gabriel was lead singer. In those days I had a PrinzSound Radio Cassette player so most of the Genesis collection on Audio Cassette including The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and being a very long Cassette eventually started to lose it's tracking. I recently purchased the Vinyl version but still waiting to unwrap it. Not long after my Dad died I purchased the DVD of Yes appearing in a California location - Superb as always.

I've a lot of happy memories of the Free Trade Hall (and the Apollo) in Manchester. My buddies and I spent a lot of the 70s going to gigs and we would travel some distances for certain acts.  We particularly enjoyed our trips over the Pennines. The train fare to Manchester was about 2 quid. Rush, Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow, the Strawbs....many others.

We'd have the afternoon off work from our various jobs and be in Manchester about 2. Have a bite and a few beers, then try to get into soundchecks. Easier than it would be today. Most of the time we just walked in. We looked like roadies anyway 😀. Most groups weren't precious. Always glad to speak to fans.

After a show we'd try to get backstage for another natter with the band, then a few more beers and catch the 2.00 a.m 'paper train' back to Sheffield. It was called that as it used to leave Manchester loaded up with copies of the next day's Daily Mirror.

Happy days indeed.
