Every Picture Tells a Story
The picture in question is our Rodney performing at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games which are currently underway in my home town.
It was a somewhat quirky ceremony and like the curate's egg it was good in parts.
Sadly you couldn't really say that Rod's performance was particularly good. Time to hang up those golden tonsils I feel.
What is good however is 1971's Every Picture Tells a Story. So good in fact that it features in George's Top 10 Albums of All Time series
At the time I confessed to not owning this record and was quite rightly roundly chastised by all and sundry including myself.
I have since remedied this glaring omission by purchasing a copy from Oxfam's music shop on Victoria Road.
As you may expect given the album is 43 years old the album is a bit crackly in places but the quality still shines through.
