Gordon Giltrap likes Steamroller and Tea for the Tillerman

BBC Radio 2’s Ken Bruce has a regular feature called Tracks Of My Years in which a guest is invited to select ten songs that have had significance to them. Two songs are played each day throughout the week, with accompanying explanations from the guest each day. This past week, British guitarist Gordon Giltrap was the guest. On Tuesday September 8, he selected “Steamroller” by James Taylor, along with The Who’s “Substitute”. On Thursday, September 10, he chose “Tea for the Tillerman” by Cat Stevens, as well as Bill Whelan’s “Riverdance”. (Links point to BBC’s audio clips of Giltrap’s explanations for his picks. Clips are in Real Audio format.)

Thanks to Bridget for the tip!
