Close To The Edge - Yes
Lightningbolt - Hyhemeyhosts Storm
Blade Runner (Editor's Cut) - Ridley Scott

Not an easy choice, so many close seconds...but these have been with me a long time and I 'Love' them, they never fail to lift my spirits and Inspire me.

Choices on this would change constantly but at present I'd go
Blood and chocolate by elvis Costello
The power and the glory by David yallop (simply because I started reading it about 6 years ago but haven't finished it) I have read other books since by the way
Sleeper woody allen (if there's a funnier slapstick then I'd like to see it) but dog day afternoon would run it close for my choice for this one

Love Abbey Road.
"She came in through the bathroom window" was inspired by an actual event.A girl broke into McCartneys house in St Johns Wood via the aforesaid entry point.She was taken away by the Police,but no charges were bought as she had well to do/aristocratic parents who made it all go away,hence the,"protected by a silver spoon"line.

Not an easy choice, so many close seconds...but these have been with me a long time and I 'Love' them, they never fail to lift my spirits and Inspire me.
I bought "Close to the Edge" on vinyl from a second hand record store in the mid 70's.
I loved the Roger Dean Niagra Falls at the end of the Universe gatefold artwork,and the caligraphy used on the lyrics.Loved the music too.It's an album that I always listen to all the way through because it flows so well.
