Right, back to the topic in question. More hols approaching so it's a quick change of CD's for the duration.

Free, Bad Company, Deep Purple / Rainbow, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Whitesnake. That'll do for a week or so !

Had some free time this morning, as madam is at the hairdressers. So it's Endangered Species CD by Lynyrd Skynyrd as I nip to the shops.

A superb acoustic bunch of LS's goodies such as The Last Rebel. Very atmospheric, and a brilliant version of Sweet Home Alabama, with the very underrated Ed King in fine form.  Ed was one of those rarities in the business, who was regarded as a musicians musician. That's good enough for me. A true talent. Turn it up !

Went to Lincoln to visit my daughter on Saturday, and played a new (to me) Whitesnake CD. It was The Purple Album, in which Whitesnake cover a lot of Deep Purple songs which David Coverdale wrote whilst with them. 

Some brilliant stuff redone in Whitesnakes own fashion.

You Fool No One, The Gypsy, Mistreated, Might Just Take Your Life, You Keep Moving, and an absolutely amazing acoustic version of Soldier of Fortune. One of the best rock ballads ever written in my opinion.

 A superb bunch of driving songs !

Had the late great Robert Palmer on today. God, this guy could sing. Rock, soul, jazz, blues, pop, folk. Anything. 

He's sang with the likes of Vinegar Joe, New Romantics Duran Duran duo, the Taylor's in Power Station. Just listen to their remix version of Get it on. Mind blowing.

This man could sing the phone directory and it'd knock you out. RIP Mr Palmer. A true gentleman in an industry saturated with filth.

Done a fair bit of driving this morning, and had the late great Gerry Rafferty CD's on. Such a sad loss, and he left us with countless great songs, such as Baker St, Night Owl, Get it Right Next Time, Right Down the Line and many more.

Real emotional and true to life songs.
