Welcome to episode 125 of Love That Album Podcast.
I’m joined by host of the brilliant Supporting Characters podcast Bill Ackerman to talk about singer, guitarist and songwriter Terry Reid with a focus to his 1976 album Seed of Memory. Terry is one of those musicians who is unfortunately more known for what he didn’t do than what he did. He SHOULD be a musician revered as any of the 60s and 70s greats. He was loved and admired by the likes of The Rolling Stones (who took him on tour twice while he was still a teenager), Cream, Crosby Stills & Nash, and Aretha Franklin.
Terry was an incredible interpreter of song, but as Bill and I concur, the two albums that cemented him as a songsmith were River from 1973 and Seed of Memory. We talk about his history as it’s an important leadup to the album itself. We “Bang Bang Shoot Down” (it’ll make sense) the “if only he’d taken this path” theorists about his artistic choices and focus on the wonderful music he made, including the unlikely film director who was a champion of this particular record.
Don’t know who Terry is? Listen to the episode and let Bill and I convince you why you need his music in your life.

If you’d consider writing an iTunes review we’d be immensely grateful. However, it’d be even better if you told a friend about the podcast – at a barbecue, over coffee, while hitting a six, on social media….whatever way you choose, consider me grateful.
