I couldn’t resist a peek – Gang of Four and Jim Reeves
I have just been to have a quick peek at my record collection stored in the cupboard in the hallway. I promised myself I would wait until my deck was all set up but I just couldn’t wait.
I took the top two records from the pile of vinyl and experienced a mixture of delight and amazement. The first record had a red cover and was ‘Entertainment’ from the Gang Of Four. Delighted with this I then took the next one and discovered ‘The Greatest Hits of Jim Reeves‘.
The Gang of Four were a favourite of mine in the 80s, a brash post-punk with some really pointed lyrics. However I am at a total loss to understand what Jim Reeves is doing in my collection. I have nothing really against Jim Reeves, just surprise that this record should be there. The only track that I vaguely know is Distant Drums which charted at one stage.
Who knows what other mysteries will be discovered when I go through the collection.
