  1. My first memory of this album would have been in the late 1970's, when we went to visit an elderly sailor-friend one afternoon... as we approached his front door, I could hear [what I later-on discovered to be] this album blasting-out at top-volume thru his open lounge-room window... My initial impression was that, "if an 'old' guy like this liked this album, I sure reckon that I should listen to it too!" - and I did!

  2. At the moment I can draw from a 'pool' of 305 albums to feature on the program... that's roughly six years' worth of programs!!!! Woah!
