  7. Love it! I scrolled down looking away from the screen so I haven’t peeked if any answers have been posted already – I’ll send my submissions (thanks for mentioning the quantity of 2 – there are only 2 I feel confident about!) once I’ve had more chance to ponder!

  12. Spotted 8. My two selections are ELO Out of the Blue and the Joni Mitchell Hissing of Summer Lawns are two I was almost certain someone would point out. I think Rich probably spotted Two of the other ones I am thinking of since I beleive he has done series on them. I could be wrong.

  15. Oh maybe make that 4, there’s Pentangle… And it is called Sweet Child? I think…

    1. Nice work. AC/DC – High Voltage was one that stumped most. And yes indeed, balancing Bon’s Yang with some Jacqui Yin is Pentangle’s Sweet Child.

      1. Awesome! I knew it was Pentangle but want sure if it was that or Basket of Light. Lucky guess. I think that actually makes me 8 for artists and 5 for titles then.

    ELO – Out of the Blue
    Joni Mitchell – The Hissing of Summer Lawns

  17. Dammit! I must be going senile! At first glance I only recognised 3.
    You were very sneaky not putting any Cliff Richard or Brotherhood of man albums, I notice.

    1. Graceland (Paul Simon) is duly recorded. As ELO already had a mention, is there something else you’d like to add JDB?

    1. Sorry, your invite must have been delayed by heavy traffic in the time zones.
      I think the next one, I’ll suggest people name their total for ‘Unassisted’ and ‘Researched’. What do you reckon?
