In 1969 The Who released their rock opera Tommy. It was a major influence in my childhood years and still is a favorite album. A look back.
Somewhere in 1984 I heard the beautiful Tinseltown In The Rain for the first time. It turned out to be by The Blue Nile. Debut album A Walk Across The Rooftops is equally great!

In 1984 Echo & The Bunnymen released the classic Ocean Rain. Lush orchestration with beautiful melodies and (incomprehensible) lyrics. A look back at a 1980’s classic.
