Congratulations to Baby-You’re-A-Rich-Kamerman who blitzed last week’s quiz, solving the 8 questions in a reality-defying 6 seconds.
This week we are looking at another 4×4 grid – we had one about artists a few weeks ago, but this one has albums. You need to enter the artist’s initial in the square – the rows and columns form words, so you can figure out the ones you don’t know.
I scored 16/16 with 2:03 remaining – I found it easier than the artists one. Can you beat my score?
I’ve been reading Keep on Running: The Story of Island Records. Has anyone else read it? I sometimes don’t think in terms of labels, but Island had a pretty impressive roster of cool bands back in the day – in the late 1960s and early 1970s they had Traffic, John Cale, Fairport Convention et al, Nick Drake, Roxy Music, and Sparks. They also had success with international artists, notably Bob Marley and King Sunny Ade. They seemed less prominent in the 1980s and onward, but still had U2, PJ Harvey, and Amy Winehouse, as well as Tom Waits’ 1980s and 1990s catalogue.
