107 Ain't No Lottery Number

Peach

The Allman Brothers - Little Martha
The Monkees - Circle Sky (Alt. Version)

Will skip the track commentary today if you don't mind and will head straight to the nitty gritty. I had a brainwave today as to how to galvanise reader participation. Below are listed all the artists that have featured on Adventures... since it clawed itself from the primordial ooze. All you have to do is leave a comment stating your top 5 faves and, most importantly, why. For your troubles, I'll pick my favourite response and the winner's picks will get a thorough essay each with lots of lovely mp3s to accompany them. The winner will also receive an 'Adventures... Best Of' double CD with crudely drawn artwork to accompany it. Yes, I'll even pay postage to you lot overseas and will hopefully be able to include some rare bonus tracks on the CDs too.

That's 107 bands to choose from so you lot had better get crackin'. Meanwhile, I'll sit back with an English Breakfast Tea and laugh at the destruction that I have wrought or alternatively weep when no-one answers my challenge. Either way, I'll keep on plugging away at your resolve to resist my special kind of voodoo hoodoo.
