Suffolk Show senior steward Barry Martin, selects his all time favourite albums

The Beatles: Please, Please Me
I was still at school when this was released, but the Beatles were the start of a new dynamic style of popular music. Every number was so original and just great music that still lives on. Although it was a difficult choice between this album or Sergeant Pepper, this won as it was the start of the Beatles phenomenon.

Fleetwood Mac: Rumours
Over the years I liked a number of Fleetwood Mac early numbers Oh Well and The Green Manalishi, but when Rumours was launched every number was fantastic and still is.

Dire Straits: Money for Nothing
This album is a fantastic compilation of everything great about their music from Sultans of Swing to Brothers in Arms. Walk of Life is still the track to get people bopping on the dance floor even now!

Queen: A Night at the Opera
Queens music from Killer Queen was faultless and when this album was produced they moved to an even higher level - especially with the release of Bohemian Rhapsody. Freddie Mercury was brilliant and is sadly missed.

Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin IV
My first introduction to Zeppelin was a gift of an unmarked tape of their second album. I didnt even know their name at the time but Whole Lotta Love will stay with me forever. This album will always stand out for the fantastic and immortal track Stairway to Heaven.

Barry Martin is Suffolk Shows senior steward for transport.
