Mum and Dad liked Dean Martin, Roger Miller, Val Doonican, Glen Miller, Seekers etc. My grandmother liked classical music, Russ Conway, the famous musicals but also Elvis!
Telstar  was the first of Mum and Dad's that I remember really liking, capturing the magic of the early days of space travel. The first one they bought me was Mr. Tambourine Man . The first I bought myself was Let's Hang On . I still have them all.
The family record player was in the sun room that was right next to my bedroom so when the old man would get on the piss and start playing records at night I'd have it coming through my walls.
Can't recall exactly which one of these songs it was but it was one of them.
Gordon Lightfoot, great, great voice. Edmund Fitzgerald hit a chord for me, spent a lot of time up on the shore of Lake Superior as all my family come from up there.
