              That’s cool, you can take it to a higher res if you have the program to do that when dealing with specific images. Not always possible though. In this case the image Microfix put up seems good. Details usually fade off anyway. My dad played steel and if he were alive I’m sure could come up with most of the 75. 😊

          That would be the “B52s” I think. And now I’m not sure about my earlier post of calling out The Vegetable Orchestra etc., since the table appears to hold more fruit than vegetables. So scratch that guess off the list.

            already mentioned here and they were britpop from the early 1990’s onwards..
            Although the other britpop band of that era, ‘Oasis’ reffered to ‘blur’ as the ’90’s equivalent of status quo’ in an interview at some point who were classed as a rock band 🙂

        I find it a little weird that The Beatles are not in there!  The Beach Boys who were popular before The Beatles are in there.

          The same could be said of others missing like ‘the Who’, ‘Elvis’, ‘BBKing’, ‘Cream’ etc..

              Oh yeah, ok. Duh. They’re better in person, standing front stage eye to eye through the lens.
              I see Human League now.

            Yeah, for us boomers.  I only knew about ¼ of these.  Lots of fun though.
