list of 29 September 1973. Three new entries that week are featured on our car's USB MP3 stick. In the end I picked the internationally least known one, over the songs by the Sweet and Suzi Quatro. The Cats from the Dutch village of Volendam scored another top10 hit with Maribaja, one of their finest efforts. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player).

Philipp Klinger has been absent from this blog far too long. Partially this was due to his own break from Flickr, partially due to the fact that I had put the Flickr Favourites theme on hold for a while. Anyway, here he is with a perfect minimal composition of the Tuscan landscape - with a sensual twist. As usual, all rights retained by the creator.

list of 22 September 1973. Although it has featured before in my blog, I had to choose that beautiful summer ballad by Bobby Goldsboro as my pick of the week. Art Rock score: 9/10 (excellent song, one of the 600 best of all time).

BBC article revealed, a good photograph of this masterpiece has now been found in the museum's archives. Particularly striking is the combination with the orange frame, selected by the artist himself. More about van Gogh in the Wikipedia article linked to below.

list of 15 September 1973. A number of good MP3 player worthy songs to choose from, including Barry White and Jimmy Helms, but my pick of the week is Bowie's excellent cover of a famous Stones song - not released as a single in the UK, but a hit in Holland. Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I would put it on my MP3 player).

knips2007(Rainer) last featured in this blog - and curiously that was with a butterfly shot as well. I love the colours and softness in this one, generating an almost abstract feeling rather than a straightforward nature shot. Beautiful. As usual, all rights retained by the creator.

list of 8 September 1973. Last week, the new entries were mediocre or worse, this week I had to pick between two of my all-time favourite songs. In the end, as much as I love the Stones' ballad Angie, I love Uriah Heep's Easy livin' even more. Art Rock score: 10/10 (one of 200 best songs of all time).
