    The only EP I own is this Shadows one.
    I spotted it in the loft the other day.
    Wonder if it’s worth anything...

    I have a couple of Beatles EP, Twist And Shout and No 1. I also have twin 7” version of MMT.

    As for Tony’s comment, I, personally, could happily spend the rest of my life only listening to the output from the Beatles. It might actually be a good challenge for October. Nothing but Beatles month. Hmm.

    I also have a couple of 10” discs. One by The Kinks (Shape Of Things To Come) which has 8 tracks and is almost a greatest hits disc as all tracks were hits and one by Rickie Lee Jones (Girl At Her Volcano) which has 7 tracks. The latter is a Quiex II pressing.

    Of course, how could it slip my mind? It's perfect, and I love the raw pre-Hannet sound.

    The other absolute classic EP for me is The Cramps, 'Smell of Female'. I realise it's a borderline mini-album, being 6 tracks, but it is 45RPM, so that makes it officially an EP.

    ^^^ This is exactly why you don't like the Beatles. It's that simple, and no more explanation is necessary or particularly relevant.

    For those who do like them, I have heard there is about to be a new Beatles release. It's something that John was working on before he died. Ringo and Paul have finally recorded it, and it will be out soon.

    It probably won't be a classic. 'Free as a bird' wasn't. But I certainly want to listen to it.

    For sheer raw mentalness I’d put Gravest Hits ahead of it. I saw them live shortly after that and they really were crazy good!

    Cocteau Twins Aikea Guinea


    My introduction to the Cocteau’s was seeing the video for Aikea Guinea on a Saturday morning TV show hosted by Gary Crowley. My life was never the same after that.

    May have been mentioned but:
    For me far better than the LP it came from.

    Had forgotten about it! It's sooo beautiful, a case can be made about it being the best thing they did.

    1974 when Tom Moulton couldn't find any 7" blanks for a test pressing of an Al Downing track. His Engineer spread the track over one side of a 12 and they listened to it open-mouthed.
    "It was an accident you know," laughs Moulton. "I'm not trying to compare this to the polio vaccine, but didn't Luis Pasteur do the same thing when he left something in a petri dish over the weekend? So I kind of get embarrassed when people say, 'oh you invented the 12". No I didn't invent it, they just ran out of 7" blanks."

    Studio opened in 77 which was a bit later but I'm nit-picking.

    to the OP, do Peel sessions count? if Yes then 'That Petrol Emotion''s sesh' gets a fair few listens around these parts.
