Led Zeppelin: Stairway to Heaven

Tony Evans' musical tastes were formed in the 1960's and have remained there...like quite a few of us.

Good to see The Band as one of his choices.

Oedipus Rex: Stravinsky

Oedipus Rex was an album I bought in the 50s - it was so impressive, this mellifluous French voice going on about "Voici la drame..." and then suddenly - pause - a terrific crashing discord and the music starts. Unbelievable. Unfortunately my first wife took that album and I've never heard it since.

Stairway To Heaven: Led Zeppelin

Most of my musical preferences come from the 60s and early 70s, however, I first heard this song when I was living in a commune in the Bishop of Uganda'a former house in Salama Road - an enormous main room which I used to fill up with Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor...which was almost one of my fave fives.

Arcadian Driftwood: The Band

When I was living in Canada I was into Bob Dylan, I was impressed by Blonde on Blonde - and so naturally when The Band split from Dylan, I got into that. When I first heard Acadian Driftwood, it moved me to tears.


Hey Jude: The Beatles

I came back to London in 1967 to visit my brother, and this had just come out. Great memories of London in the swinging 60s, and did they swing!

Mercy I Cry City: The Incredible String Band

I took a girl I met in Uganda to an ISB concert at the Albert Hall in 1970...great girl, great concert, great band, a great song. I was between wives at the time.
