There are a good few  musicians who did well and had long careers.. without quite breaking through into the 'big time'.  Such folks have always interested me.

Music still good in the 70s.......I moved to Peterborough and this song reminds me of Annabelle's night club (the only one in Peterborough) 

            Met ex Forest man John Barnwell in there one night........said he was looking for players.........lol

I did enjoy laughing at Only Fools and Horses but I much preferred Nicholas Lyndhurst in Goodnight Sweetheart a program with a very unique story line. For me Trigger, (Roger Lloyd-Pack) was the stand out in OF&H. Just wish we could watch them again, some episodes are available on YT.

YT ha hundreds of episodes on LOTSW too

Sorry Ben, Can't give you a like for that one as far as I am concerned apart from some notable classic exceptions the 70's was a lost decade of decent music when compared to the 60's. There was far too much mush and I did not enjoy much of the  Glam Rock. Here are all the UK number 1 hits of the seventies have a listen and see what you think.

The thing i miss most is going to the pub, Saturday night with a piano and a sing song, one of my favorits was I'll join the legion another was On mother kelly's door step, Lily of lamplight, and one which my grandad used to sing "Wooden Hut"  and many more. you could sing  as lould as you wanted even if you had no singing voice no-one cared because we were all very happy thanks to a few beers.

In the late 50's it was football, football and football for me Ben and for a few short weeks cricket.

Sorry Enigma, that is a really woeful version of the John Denver classic a pretty poor attempt at Sinatraising a great song. John Denvers' version with Cass Elliot is great but the best by far is by Peter Paul and Mary.
