Great choice of Mamouna MR CBQ!!! Without a doubt, a Top Ten Ferry track for me! Well Done
Ryan

CBQ said...

Cheers Ryan - glad you liked that choice...

"Mamouna" is probably my favourite Ferry solo album, though "Olympia" is up there too...

Either, I feel, could have been a Roxy Music release...

Stu said...

Sweet, i bought my first MP3 player today and have downloaded everything to listen to while walking The West Highland Way in a weeks time. Hope all are well.
See you soon hopefully.

CBQ said...

Cheers Stu. Now of course I'm worried my choice of music will ruin your trip LOL...

I'm thinking of doing something similar in the future re jazz and/or classical - and , whilst writing, thought too about a Prog Rock scenario...

Then there's 100 favourite songs..

Etc etc...

Everyone loves a list...

Enjoy your walk!

Stu said...

Thanks, the only list i write is a shopping list. Prog Rock one would be good, you heard of an Aussie band called Kompany or something? Heard them at a BBQ the other week, quite good.

CBQ said...

Hi Stu - can't find this Kompany band unless it's the one from the 60's...

Nice...

Austrian rather than Australian though - album form '72 - a great year!
