I sold it Digger, much to my subsequent regret. I also sold Mushroom`s Early One Morning, another rarity. Both records were in poor condition due to over playing, and I`d written all over the Grinilla album cover, front and back! Got 700 for the two of them.

First Concert - Slade, a matinee on Paddys day 1973 in the Stadium

Favourite Concert (should be top ten favourite concerts!) - I`ll plump for seeing Camel for the first time in 1979 Manchester Apollo, first foreign gig. Honourable mention to Live Aid, what a day and evening.

Albums (from my formative years)

Camel - Moonmadness
Peggy`s Leg - Grinilla
Fruupp - Future Legends

Sweet Jesus Stefan, never knew that! Can we get him impeached for something?? Desecration of a National Treasure?, Attempted Murder? Sedition??!!

Having said all that i would have a morbid fascination to see the whole song, is there such an X rated video available on the dark web?

Greetings from Co. Meath. WFH since March. Air cargo, was manic for a time. Immediate family and friends all fine. I personally know no one who passed from Covid thank God. Daughters partners granny (80) got it, not sure which came first bronchitis/Pneumonia or covid. she`s home and she`s fine after a week in and on oxygen for a few days. Missing gigs, live football (Mon the Gypsies!) and going for a few beers and eating out. Music has helped a lot. Late to Spotify and exploring the wonders of checking out albums i knew of but never had or heard. (Chris Squire/Fish out of Water this morning).

Four sets of tickets wondering if they`ll ever get scanned. Our Heroes, Simple Minds, Retro Festival, and, gulp, eh, Johnny Logan! (The wife, honestly!!!!)

Finally got The Shell. Really like it, hard to categorise, more instruments than a 747 cockpit! lovely listen while driving. sort of album you`d put on at one a.m. slightly pissed and mellow. (bedtime much earlier than that these days!).

Well done to the man who signed my TUCOT album in Discount Sounds Wexford Street where I worked, "Best Wishes from the Unfortunate Charles O Connor".

He bought a Taj Mahal album, probably charged him full whack!

Is it safe to say I never liked, dont like, and will never like Van Morrison`s music bar a few of them?? I cant stand Gloria...there I said it!

Isnt musical taste a complete mystery. my attempts to persuade friends of the wonders of David Surkamp of Pavlov`s Dog unique vocals is usually met with revulsion or at best complete indifference

Ah me old pal John George Byrne, spent two or three formative years together before our paths diverged. We organised 50 seater buses to Red Island for the gigs there, which if memory serves me, at the height of it all, could be four times a year. Modest profit always guaranteed!

Anyone see the best 50 Irish Albums ever in the Irish Times last Saturday? (also available on their app). Not a sign of our heroes, 25 of the 50 were from the 2000`s, and a lot of absolute shite therein. Live and Dangerous at number 50, Girl Band (???) at No. 1, me blood was boiling so it was!

Seen as I am on one of my rare non lurking visits to this site, wondering if many Fantasiacs still had posters from back in the day? I worked in Discount Sounds in Wexford St (got my old pal (John) George Byrne in there to help me out on a Saturday and he proceeded to order all sorts of obscure shite that went unsold! John regrettably is now telling God that he hasnt a clue about music and running quizzes that he comes first in every time!). Anyway, one of my fondest memories was trooping out to Haddington Road and returning with a treasure trove of Horslips posters, my favourite of which was the sepia coloured head shot one where Eamon has the badge that read " UFO`s are real" or somesuch. There`s a six marker that old George would have answered in two seconds! Must clamber up to the attic to check the badge out....

I wish I could say I remember that, maybe I got there late!

The Range Rover, some of my Horslips pals lived in Sandymount and once got a lift back from the Stadium, thought they were in heaven!

Same here. was at the Zoo on tuesday, had a long nostalgic stare at the band stand where i stood as a sixteen year old seeing my heroes for the first time. Great to see the white outfits to rekindle the memory of the excitement of the day, to be honest thats all I can remember, white outfits, how exotic!

Attended my old pals funeral yesterday, was chuffed to hear Tom Dunne mention Discount Sounds in Wexford St. as it was me who invited John to come in and give me a dig out on saturdays. The amount of unsaleable shite he ordered when I wasnt looking! It was also me and John who organised the buses out to Red Island and other venues at the height of Lipsmania, had forgotten we left him behind one night but not at all surprised. We hung around for a few years but eventually went our separate ways for no reason at all. Met him for the last time five years ago at a reunion and had a great old chat about everything especially Bohs and Rovers (come back to Dalyer Eamon we need your fifteen euro!)

One of the five men we idolised as teenagers and set upon pedestals fifty foot high carried his coffin yesterday.............

Rest in peace John, but knowing you that might be impossible!

so i have spent 40 years thinking that the end of time to kill played backwards was " we love Satan,go see the Exorcist in the Adelphi, its great!"

Two thigs spring to mind re the Táin, firstly I actually bought the D D single first, in Dolphin Discs in Capel Street, i dropped it on the way home,and to my horror a chunk was takien off the edge. luckily, when i got it home, it still played the full sonng, albeit with a micro second to spare!
I also remember the excitement/astonishment of listening to Radio Luxembourg, and Kid Jensen playing More Than You Can Chew, he described it as "curly music", its only now that I wonder if it was short and curly he was referring to, given the innuendo possible from the title and lyrics!

Talking to a record collector only yesterday, he reckons the Táin gatefold with original inner sleeve is worth 150 quid !! I think I`ve two of them, up to the attic, quick!

apologies if this has been flagged already, although i was aware of the (in)famous roof top King of the Faeries, i was either unaware or had forgotten that they also did the Snake and TUCOT on this show. you can now relive these appearances and a nostalgic look at areas of Dublin in 76 on RTE Player. very impressed with the fab gear on all concerned! Platform shoes, an era when being 5 foot 7 was no handicap at all!

Aaah, Moon Madness, was 19 years old in 76 working in discount sounds in Wexford St when this album arrived with the EMI deliviries....as usual for EMI, they sent me stuff i never ordered, naive would have been a kind description of me back then, but then i owe them this 35 year love affair with all things Camel.

Charles came in one day and bought a Taj Mahal album, which was very nice, as the local wide boys robbed me blind at every opportunity, Jesus i`d say i was spotted five miles away, so young, so trusting!

My other claim to infamy is sending back six copies of what i considered utter rubbish at the time.....the EMI pressing of Anarchy in the UK, i dont even want to know how much they are worth now!
