You're all goin' on about the 90's...much too late for me. Can anyone remember the Donkeys from the late 70's/early 80's?

Those that went to Normanton Grammar school might remember the band leader, Neil Ferguson, who later lost his street cred quite a bit as a record producer with that band responsible for Agadoo!

The Donkeys were good though, I remember seeing them in Sheffield around the same time as Duran Duran were emerging on the scene.

You can indeed KOL. One of my fav albums of all time. I have seen andy powell's version a couple of years ago but preferred martin Turner's version of wishone ash. They played in wath near me a couple of years ago and were brilliant.

Not a weak track is there on that album.

Anyone's top three albums of yheir lifetime is always likely to vary according to mood, time etc, but argus is always in my top three amd turner turner upton and powell is the classic line up tho laurie wiesfield was no slouch

Just to ease the tension, I thought I'd regurgitate the music thread. Does anyone remember the song 'sock it to em JB'? it was a reggae song covered by The Specials. Stratto your always trying to get chants going, food for thought perhaps.. I thought of the song only because of its chanty nature, nothing else.

I Can't think of 3 albums to sum up how I feel right now and I don't know if its an age thing but I've just listended to The Raw and The Cooked by Fine Young Cannibals and one track from the album sums up how I feel today after 4 days on the pop, "Im not the man I used to be".

And that song they did about Morgan Freeman:

 

"He drives Miss Daisy..and no-one else...he drives Miss Daisy.....cos she can't drive herself".

  FYCs did a brilliant cover of 'Suspicious Minds' - Roland Gifts' incomparable voice did a far better job than Elvis at his best.

 

 Just listening to some of my favourite tracks while i let the evening drift aimlessly by - Supertramp, 'Lord is it mine' followed by

 a bit of Jim Croce 'Dreamin Again'.  Seems like everything i listen to lately has Rovers connotations.

Saw george thorogoood and the destroyers at Roundhay Park along with Joan Jett, Joe Jackson and of course the Rolling Stones circa 1981. Have to say the best act "by a country mile" was Joe Jackson whose set was fantastic. I have to say that I and the rest of my party were disappointed with the Stones offering.

1982 spud.....I was there.

Wasn't j giles band there too?

Seen joe jackson a few times. I bought his album "I'm the man' with my winnings from 40/1 ben nevis in the national in 1980.

Great live act. In 82 they did an acapella verson of 'is she really going out with him'...... it was awesome!

82 it was then. That acapella version blew every one away. But my favourite is still the single I'm The Man.
