Over the last fortnight I've been zealously duplicating my LC LP collection on CD like a man on a mission. Three remain Songs Of LC, Songs of Love and Hate ... and Greatest Hits . If I could resurrect my turntable I'd probably be playing these LP's: Led Zeppelin 4 (The one with Stairway) The Pogues ...

I saw Tanita Tikaram at the height of her fame (Twist In My Sobriety) when she played Hull University in '89 I think. The high point was a very good rendition of 'Ain't No Cure For Love' . Like many of her critics, I think she tried a little too hard to be moody and intense and the persona always se...

It's a tough one but I went for the 80's. VP was my introduction to LC ( a revelation!) around 1987 and I saw him live in 1988 on the IYM tour.

Darn it! Ali beat me to the punch with 'Don't Worry Be Happy'. Three other songs that Leonard should never be allowed anywhere near are: 1. The Laughing Gnome by Bowie. G_d alone knows even Bowie should never have made that record. :? 2. Teddy Bear by Elvis. That might be stretching irony to breakin...

Ladies and Gentlemen. Introducing...........

........me :wink: Stumbled across TLCF a few weeks ago and have been meaning to join the forum since then. I was first introduced to LC by a friend at Uni in 1987 and was smitten there and then. Many long caffeine/ nicotine fuelled nights spent listening to the great man when I should have been writ...
