I find many of your posts fascinating and would therefore be interested in your intellectual biography. But you might argue that it's easily pieced together from your posts.

Chris - I lived just off Melton Road (Marfitt St). Neither the 22 nor 37 ran then; this was the late 70s.

"I have retained a visceral hatred of Emerson, Lake and Palmer."

Me too, and that's completely without any class or other issues irrelevant to the quality of the music. For you, that may of added to the feeling, giving it a depth and quality that makes it worth savoring (no, not "sp?"), but the feeling itself originates in the quality of the music.
