The last time I heard

The last time I heard them I was probably about ten, maybe eleven. My dad used to play them in the car. He only had this album, ABBA’s greatest hits and The Carpenters. He was not the coolest man in the world, it becomes clear to me… Anyway – obviously I’ve bought the ABBA and Carpenters album since, but never before have I heard the classic songs from the other album, until now… And I can tell you with complete honestly that Neil Diamond is as cool today as he ever has been!… “Forever in Blue Jeans”, “Song Sung Blue” – now that’s proper music!
