PattiSmithHorsesYour pal The Rock’N’Roll Nurse was a wee tyke of 12 in 1975, but was a voracious consumer of oddball pop/rock/whatever LPs.  Hear some of his more memorable polyvinyl chloride finds from back in the day on Part 3 of a 4-part tribute to the halfway point of the ’70s (featuring bands with names M-S in his meticulously alphabetized collection)!

The Prince’s Trust Collection on Geek (Ema)Nation Podcast!

Prince's TrustThis 2-LP Compilation released in 1985 (as seen on TV! it says in the lower right corner) says it contains prime tracks by “the cream of British rock” and the money gathered from sales was supposed to go to a trust devoted to “exploring ways in which young people who felt alienated in our modern society might be encouraged to help themselves.”  Lofty goals indeed.  Some decent music too, although tracks by the likes of BILL WYMAN, JIMMY PAGE and ROBERT PLANT seem pretty bloated and gratuitous compared to the new wave sounds of KATE BUSH, MADNESS, and even (gasp!) DURAN DURAN.  Creamy Brit-Rock for you, fellow music geeks!
