I don't think we've got any gramophones 'ere grandad.


First. I've already mentioned the connection between Candlemass and Hulme before:

But in the spirit of what goobster said of course it's the whole album that transports me.

Epicus Doomicus Metallicus

Next is the odd one out because it's a single track.

Donna Summer's State Of Independence (New Radio Millennium Mix)

Takes me directly back to Sydney and the early rave scene there. That article takes me back too - as much as the song. Sugar Ray, Ming D, Joe 90, Sheen... - I've no idea how they've tracked down so many flyers and dates and places from that era....

Finally, I guess the last one is not just a place but a specific event - I got bitten by a mosquito in Hong Kong and the bite got infected. I was bedridden in agony for a week with a huge swollen, puss filled neck that ended up with a hospital trip to get drained. Had this album on almost constantly the whole time. Do you hear a cow?
