Terry Reid - Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)

Here's further proof. Terry Reid was one of the worthies. The votes have been counted! My father only had two or three positive things to say to me in his long lifetime, and one of them came one day when I was playing this album alone in my room. It was a rare weekend day when he was home; he was in the habit of spending twenty or twenty five days on the road at the time (most of my childhood). "You know," he said, sounding almost surprised, "the stuff that you play is a lot better than that crap I hear on the radio." I still cherish that moment.
