“Some fantastic accounts posted here!
Yes, Shannons. I bought a NAD turntable from them in 1983.”

“I know nothing about her, but as a historian I hate loose ends and mysteries. There is one Discogs credit for the Ulster Orchestra dating to the late 60s. Like you, I found a few online references, but nothing after the 60s.”

“Any idea what became of her?”

“What a snide, unpleasant review. It rather reminds me of why I stopped reading the music press around that time.”

“Good to see a scan from Lewisohn's great book.
Is this before Eric Stewart joined Wayne Fontana?”

“I had a copy of this, but I don't seem to have it anymore??? Can't remember giving it away...
I think I still have the insert so I will scan it at some point.”

“I know that 10cc have not been terribly well remembered since their 70s heyday, but they are one of my favourite bands and unfairly overlooked imo as either representative of 70s rock or Manchester.
I didn't really get into them until about 1980, but I admire them for their great songs (very witty and satirical lyrics), great singing and imaginative arrangements and production. I think How Dare You and Sheet Music are very strong albums too.
So as far as I am concerned this retrospective is not before time and I will try to get to see it in the next year.”

“Urmston wasn't a place I went to a lot, but I did visit Spin a Disc a few times. I recently played a Dizzy Gillespie double album I bought there in late 84, so it must have had a pretty broad range. I had the habit of putting the price label on the inside and that's how I tracked down the name of the shop”

“There were definitely still some nutters there. I remember going to the Friday night discos and a group of skinheads regularly visited and caused mayhem.
From my memory this venue opened around spring 1982 (I lived in Loxford tower virtually opposite at that time).
I saw The Mightly Wah, Bow Wow Wow and a few other bands. Also from memory Culture Club appeared around Christmas 1982 and although they were booked as an unknown act, by the time they appeared they'd had their massive hit and the place was heaving.”
