My regular acidjazz/nujazz readers can skip this entry. Nothing for you here this time. You have been warned.
The first album I bought with my own money was by City Boy - The day earth caught fire. I blame a friend's older brother for this taste in music. I was more into disco really.
This was in 1979 I think. The style is progressive rock, from Birmingham, England. I still like this album, and yesterday bought the albums City Boy, Dinner at the Ritz, Young Men Gone West and Book Early. I may have them on vinyl somewhere but of course I need them in digital form.
