What Do You Fancy?

Shaping up a Record Player programme for the Autumn, my thoughts below. Anything you fancy adding to the list please post in comments below, or email therecordplayer@yahoo.co.uk.

Once I've got some suggestions they go to a public vote.

Here's some of my thoughts:

Kate Bush - The Kick Inside
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin 3
Prefab Sprout - Steve McQueen
The Human League - Dare
Dexy's Midnight Runners - Too Rye Aye
Roxy Music - For Your Pleasure
David Bowie - Diamond Dogs
Dave Brubeck - Take Five

Singles Clubs
Christmas Singles.
Halloween/Bonfire Night Special - Scary Songs/Explosive Songs
The Saddest Songs Ever

Themed Nights
California Dreaming Night - Rumours vs Hotel California
Wiggy English Prog Night - Threshold of a Dream vs Fragile
Electro Then and Now Night - Tangerine Dream vs James Blake or Burial
Mr Drayton's Album of 2012 (it's landed already)
Neil Young - Harvest vs Harvest Moon
Wiggy Punk Night - Talking Heads '77 vs XTC White Music

Whilst you're thinking on, here's some pictures of the Singles Club Crew, Thurs 12 April, 2012.

Wrong Dexy's LP, surely? Should Searching For The Young Soul Rebels.

I give you
The Velvet Underground And Nico
London Calling
What's Goin' On?
And
The best of The Rubettes.

Although one of these might not be entirely serious.

I agree with Keith. I'd go for 'Searching' too. Agree also with Velvets and What's Going On. Astral Weeks would be great! Anyway. Looking forward to many of them. That's my Thursdays sorted.

I like the sound of the California Dreaming Night, I love the Eagles and I've always meant to try out Rumours. I think the themed singles nights would be fun too.

I still think Wish You Were Here has been strangely absent so far.

Another few suggestions:

Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds
Sisters of Mercy - Floodlands (can provide a flawless promo copy)

And there's always Ayreon if you need any more prog :p

The Eagles are awesome... Also I was quite excited to see Dave Brubeck on the list, I actually already have that LP!

Anyway requests, I'd love to hear bit more classic rock - some Black Sabbath, Dio, or Thin Lizzy. Also Dire Straits as well : )

Better late than never, some requests of some areas we haven't covered.

Some metal
Black Sabbath (Black Sabbath, Paranoid, or Sabbath Bloody Sabbath) - I have the 1st & 3rd
Iron Maiden (1st album)

Some Folk
Fairport Convention - Liege and Leif

Some Electronic
Kraftwerk
Depeche Mode / Yazoo

Also a shout for a great protest album as relevant today as it was 21 years ago
Levellers - Levelling the Land

cheers
