About 1974 I asked my Mum & Dad for the single "Tiger Feet" by Mud, and then soon after I ended up with a copy of "Sladest" by Slade (can't remember if that was a double album?) Anyway, I was 7 at the time, and my Dad had a varied record collection (Status Quo, Queen, and ....Mantovani and Perry Como!)

Fast forward a few years, and I was really into instrumental electronic music (Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre). Jon & Vangelis had a No.1 hit with "I'll Find My Way Home" in about 1981, and through the Jon Anderson link, I got into Yes - luckily, it was the 90125 era(!) - and I never looked back :-)
