My pick of the best tracks on the two albums by British band featuring former Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick (yeah, the one who wore/wears the headband). Some excellent playing and a few good riffs.

Choice Cuts from Heavy Metal Kid (1974)

My favourite three cuts from the 1974 album, the last, by Australia's Lobby Loyde and the Coloured Balls. Despite the title, Heavy Metal Kid, this is not a hard rock album. It's mostly a kind of thrash glam-boogie record that in some respects anticipates punk rock.

This new podcast features some of my all-time favourite rock and pop tracks from the late '60s and very early '70's. While the emphasis will fall on tracks that are largely forgotten today or virtually impossible to find, there'll be quite a few minor classics as well. In particular, I'll be featuring tracks from two of the era's most neglected great bands, Badfinger and Bloodrock.

Today's inaugural podcast features Bloodrock's masterpiece, Fantastic Piece of Architecture, from their self-titled debut album of 1970.
