What can I say about EMI.... it has been a household name to me all my life.
EMI can trace its roots back to 1837 (no DP I am not that old) where it metamorphosed along the years to what it is now.
Back in the 70s this is how I remember the record label
This image made me smile as Bernie Flint was a local celebrity after winning 'Opportunity Knocks' and we would hang out around his family home in the hope to get a glimpse of him ;)
Now EMI are all modern and they have this fabulous website to explore... and as I now have a new whizzier than whizz lappytop I can surf around it freely and get full benefit on what it offers... which is loads of online music.
Screen shot courtesy of Blazing Minds ... thank you :-)
(I haven't figured out how to screen shot on this new PC... yes I know I am useless)
As I am typing this review I have EMI's music sounding out in the back ground (see top right of screen for this) .. fabulous.
There is so much to take in I hardly know where to start (where is Teen when you need her?)
The home page gives you ... the latest.. what is new, 'hip' and 'happening'.
Then there is the 'Discover' tab which allows you to put in your favoured artist and matches it to similar artists ... mm I put in Donny Osmond and it came up with Jimmy Osmond eek... at least it wasn't young Jimmy Osmond with 'Long Haired Lover from Liverpool'.. thank goodness.
I am just messing about listening to artists from the browse artists list.... yeah I have found 'Another Time, Another Place' ~ Bryan Ferry. My original album is tucked away in the loft .... wow it still sounds good 35 years on :-)
I think the site is still on testing (correct me if I am wrong) because I can't load 'my playlist'...although saying that ot probably is me .......!!!
Anyway I am off to play somemore, I am lovein' it... please do go take a look ...
