This cuts through me everytime , classic
Of course, yer wan Tawney and her legendary gallivanting on the Jag has 'nowt to do with this being a guilty…ahem…pleasure, right?
I’m all about the music baby
One of the great tracks @Rochey - ELO would have been a guitly pleasure of mine. A New World Record and Out of the Blue were two exceptional albums.
