Held off our venture into my hall of fame during August as a few of of us were on holiday

Here we go again with another excellent underrated band from the 70's on my playlist

Babe Ruth featuring the wonderful voice of Jenny Haan

Favourite Albums

First Base
Amar Caballero

Chart Stats

Apart from minimal chart success in the States, Babe Ruth struggled to gain popularity in the UK
The reason Babe Ruth struggled so much in England, is at the time they surfaced, there was so much good Rock/Prog/Blues that if you were slightly sub-par, then you never got noticed. There were hundreds of bands touring around England pubs of a similar calibre, and the only reason they got noticed above the others was the singer who is reasonably decent. The musicians behind her, not so good. The keyboards player is dreadful. Wally were a similar band - good musicians but poor vocals and songwriting. If they had got Jenny Haan then they could have made it big.

Aye you could be right, 100's of bands that didn't quite make it in a fierce competitive rock market.

Haan was the focal point of Babe Ruth similar style to Stone the Crows vocalist Maggie Bell

Wally almost made it into the big-time until they were stung financially by their record company.
They played to big audiences in Harrogate & at Bradford St Georges Hall where 1000's saw them blow Leo Sayer off stage as a support band.

I loved Roy Webber's vocals, very Americana!

Into my Hall Of Fame enters one of the greatest singer/songwriters of all-time

Robert Allen Zimmerman

On my playlist

My favourite ten Dylan albums :

Another Side Of Bob Dylan
Blonde On Blonde
Bring It All Back Home
Desire
Highway 61 Revisited
Blood On The Tracks
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
The Times Are A-Changin'
Nashville Skyline
Oh Mercy

As a completist CD collector I require over 20 Dylan studio albums, unsure if I'll crack this one

Chart facts

8 x No.1 studio albums in the UK
26 albums made the top ten
Every one of his studio albums have made the top 40
Dylan has had six top 10 singles
Surprisingly Dylan has never had a No.1 single worldwide

Whilst I have a few Dylan tracks on my iPod I own no Dylan on vinyl or CD at all.

Never really got the attraction to be honest
