From his ‘Freewheelin’ Album of 63

and ‘The Times they are a-changing’ of 64,

From those early days to the present time,

Bob Dylan couldn’t have been loved more.

 

From his double Album – Blonde on Blonde,

which arrived back in 66,

to ‘Shadows in the night’  in 2015,

Bob Dylan still gives fans their fix.

 

‘The man who sold the world’ came in 70,

followed in 71 by ‘Hunky Dory’,

and by now, every devotee of David Bowie,

loved each album that told a new story.

 

In 65, ‘Help’ and ‘Rubber Soul’

were the 5th and 6th Albums  The Beatles released,

and in 69, their top selling ‘Abbey Road ‘LP

showed fans loyalty hadn’t decreased.

 

‘Exodus’ by Bob Marley and The Wailers,

in 77,  had us spellbound,

proving,  this Jamaican singer/songwriter

was  king of the reggae sound.

 

Coming through the airways of 73,

was a sound one couldn’t avoid.

Their latest offering of excellence was –

‘The Dark Side of The Moon’ by Pink Floyd.

 

A moving Album in 68,

always stood out from the rest.

‘Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison’

found this singer/songwriter at his best.

 

In 68, a certain Motown Album –

was winning all our hearts.

‘The Four Tops Greatest Hits’,

 reaching No.1 in the British Charts.

 

‘The Temptations Greatest Hits’ Album

contained ‘Get Ready’ and ‘My Girl’.

These two groups at the top of their game

had audiences in a whirl.

 

A teenage life lived through Albums,

helped with the insanity of youth.

Our bedrooms a refuge from a restricted hell,

in a search to find our own personal truth.

 

And our need to find escapism

from the life we had lead to date,

through Albums, we found a reason to live,

and a new image were able to create.
