When people ask me what’s my favourite album, I often tell them it’s EPs that I like – this is usually followed by blank stares. For me they are just perfect – four or five songs making a very happy 10-12 min listen. I’ve put a couple of examples of EPs with exclusive content ie: none of these tracks appeared in another format. The first one was easy, featuring Beatles Stones Kinks and Who. The second one digs deeper with The Big Three, Lulu, Spencer Davis Group and the Artwoods. the Big Three one is tremendous because it captures the sweaty atmosphere of the cavern. I’ll be doing the double Magical Mystery Tour in a later mix
My question is – what EPs are there from the 70s? I’ve got Jethro Tull’s Life’s a Long Song and Thin Lizzy’s New Day. Any others from the 70s?
