you might enjoy the very naughty Judge Dread record, banned (still) on the BBC, as in never ever played ever. reggae novelty smut. I'm pretty sure what the big six he's talking about is... ohmy.gif laugh.gif

Nah, I've heard Judge Dread's Christmas records and they're bad enough! I can only assume Big Six was a prophetic protest record against today's rampant energy companies. Er, or maybe not.

Big Six is the only one I've heard as it featured on one of those 20 Greatest Hits Arcade/K-Tel albums that I bought. These days that would have led to Parental guidance stickers on it. I've never felt the need to search out the others so I guess they can be left off the 70's lists as no-one has heard them (or likes them) laugh.gif

Happy with that, I thought Stevie would walk it - I was surprised Kraftwerk was so high.

yeah a deserved winner. Some results are very predictable (Undertones/Jam/Jeff Wayne) and some very likely like Stevie, but happy to see some surprises too, most of all so far Jimmy Mack. I love all the winners to bits, bar In The City, which I have just never warmed to, the most ordinary of all The Jam singles for me. Sorry! cool.gif
