In June 1971, the Singaporean music paper Fanfare ran a competition in which readers had to guess which 10 records the band members chose for their own collection when they were in Singapore for a show a few weeks earlier. Some of the records they had to choose from are pictured below.


 

DO you think you know enough about the Christie members' tastes to guess which of the albums they chose?
   In a reprise of this competition, Christie website visitors are invited to take a stab and name what they think were the 10 albums chosen by Christie back in 1971.
   The first person who names all 10 albums correctly wins a digital CD of Christie Live At The BBC .. an album of tracks recorded by the band in the BBC studios for its radio shows.

  They include Christie's version of Rock and Roll Woman, a staple of their 70s live shows, and an old Outer Limits song named Funny Things.
   Send your top 10 to this e-mail address. ONLY ONE ENTRY PER PERSON IS ALLOWED.
