It all meant something (Roy Hollingworth)

I’ve never seen anything quite so wonderful, so stirring, so uplifting, so joyous as when Gallagher and the band walked onstage. The whole place erupted, they all stood and they cheered and they yelled, and screamed, and they put their arms up, and they embraced. Then as one unit they put their arms into the air and gave peace signs. Without being silly, or overemotional, it was one of the most memorable moments of my life. It all meant something, it meant more than just rock 'n' roll, it was something bigger, more valid than just that.

An acoustic guitar playing gently beyond the hedgerow (Ian MacDonald)

To listen to Nick Drake is to step out of this world of pose and noise, and enter a quiet oak-panelled room, dappled with sunlight - a room opening, through French windows, into a lush garden, quiet because we're in the country, far from the sound of the city. It's summer, bees and birds are abroad in the shade, and, beyond the nearby trees, a soft tangle of voices and convivial laughter can be felt, along with the dipping of languid oars in the rushy river winding through cool woods and teeming meadows hereabouts: an English landscape with Gallic ghosts from Le Grand Meaulnes and La Maison de Claudine. And an acoustic guitar playing gently beyond the hedgerow in jazzy 5/4: River Man.
