In 1972 I had just gone to uni and discovered live music was not just Gilbert and Sullivan (annual trip to see whatever show Dad and his brothers were in) or church music (a decade spent as a choirboy) but included Rock, Folk and Pop.

Ah, the heady days of the Festival Fringe, seeing half a dozen shows in a day and spending around a quid for the privilege!

1972
I'd expand that purchase list with:
Black Sabbath - Vol. 4
Blue Oyster Cult - B.O.C.
David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust
Hawkwind - Doremi Fasol Latido
Lou Reed - Transformer
Status Quo - Piledriver
Thin Lizzy - Shades of a Blue Orphanage
Uriah Heep - Magician's Birthday
I may also have bought Slayed but not sure that's cool to list  Shocked

Slayed ?.....No..That's not cool.  Wink

B/S Vol 4......Worth having for 'Supernaut' alone.
BOC.....Love a load of their stuff.
Hawkwind ?...DRMEFSOLATIDO......Never sure why I replaced that on CD. ....Met them a GW, when I took a few piccies of them.
I WAS impressed (I've said this before) when I was asked, "Is it alright if we roll a spliff,"....and I said, "I'd rather you didn't,".......and they were very good...and didn't make a fuss.

Quo ? ...saw them twice in a month on the early 'Piledriver tour'.......My ears were almost bleeding after the second 'gig'.......I couldn't hear a thing for a day and a half.

Lizzy....Great band.....I can still enjoy 'Live and dangerous', to this day.

Heep ?...Another of the early 'gigs' I  went to.......Still love a load of their stuff.

Cheers - A Sad old F*rt. Wink

Blue Oyster Cult, Lou Reed, Thin Lizzy and some Hawkwind still sound good to me! What about The Moody Blues?

But then I was only 10 in 1972! Smiley Tongue

Moody Blues ?

Nowt wrong with them, Graham.

(Some bl**dy good tunes, over the years......"Lovely to see you again, my friend".....That's going back a good few 'minutes'.)

Funny enough Phil, we were just listening to that track last night (whilst we were waiting for friends to join us for a virtual cocktail hour on Zoom!)

 Smiley.....I really like that track, Graham.

Another favourite from '72...

Jethro Tull - Thick as a brick.

I still listen to that quite regularly. Wink

(I must go through my favourite bands' discographies.....and see what else I bought around that time....in vinyl, obviously. Cheesy)
