One thought on “The 1000 Greatest Vinyl Albums

  1. Jenny,
    This is manthony1956. My first name is actually Michael. I am contacting you in reference to vinyl albums, which I also have collected for 50+ years. Your bio indicates that you live in Bolton, as in Bolton, Lancashire? I ask because one of my favorite female rock vocalist, Annie Haslam, lists her origins as Bolton, Lancashire, UK. The group was “Renaissance,” and I have been listening to them almost as long as I have been in model railroading. I would definitely have “Renaissance, Camel, and Steeleye Span” in my list of top 100, though I know many of your favorites well. Just wondering if you knew or had heard of this group and/or vocalist. Say hello to Zoe. Be well.
