Hi UBT - Rod Stewart and Thin Lizzy - top two in my play book.

We must be related - did you Dad ever spend any time in Stoke?  ;D

Sorry to drift away from your sixties theme UBT, but as a musical aficionado,  do you remember a band from the 70's called Rogue, I think they had a few minor hits, and I remember I had an album on vinyl. Would love to hear their song "Fallen Angel" again. And speaking of the sixties what about the great Scot Walker?

I must admit when you said Rogue, it didn't click with me, so I looked 'em up with Fallen Angel on Youtube.  When the song played I did remember it, although I remember nothing else about the group or the song, but here it is, and is that the LP cover?

There is a mix on youtube of Rogue so suggest you take a look at it.

Further researchshows that Frankie Valli covered this song to greater success than the original composers from Rogue, which is probably why I recognised the song

Scot Walker, good singer but I think that it was probably not just the singing that you ladies liked??  I will not play/post that cheesey Joanna, but I will post/play the clever song Jackie so here goes:-

And for completness here is my Walker Brothers favourite track:

Nothing against their great hits of the 60s, but No Regrets was right in my musical sweetspot!!
