So, here at EBC Brakes We like to offer a free set of pads each month to a randomly selected forum member.

In past giveaways We have discussed our first cars, garage and storage spaces, famous people we have met or would like to have met and weird and wonderful vehicles amongst other topics.

We have been discussing amongst the EBC team music recently, and for the September pad (front or rear set) giveaway I would like to start a discussion about your desert island discs; If you were stranded on a desert island with only THREE records (and assuming a means to play them), what would you choose and why? Let us know the story behind your choice, if they have significant meaning to you or simply because its a killer song/album!

My choice would be;

The Beatles - The Yellow Submarine Soundtrack. Favourite song - Nowhere Man : I used to watch the cartoon-film with my Grandad when I was young, and although not an actual album, it has a sense of nostalgia for me.

Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced. Favourite song - Red House : Rock music was all I would listen to as a kid, and this would 100% get me through any hard times stranded on an island!

Jurassic 5 - Power in Numbers. Favourite song - What's Golden : One of the first hip-hop albums I ever listened to that really made me fall in love with the Genre.


The lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced within a few days after the closing date of 1st October 2021 and details will be posted on this forum within a few days of the closing date.

Please be aware that this thread may appear in more than one section on the forum and one winner will be selected from the whole forum, not a winner per thread.
Pad choice will be based on availability and where a chosen pad is unavailable, an alternative will be offered.

If you are not the lucky winner, remember EBC Brakes are pleased to be able to offer a 10% discount off their braking products to all members of the forum community using code FORUM10USER
This discount code can be redeemed at EBC Brakes Direct | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Brake Discs or with our USA partners at Perfect Brakes | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Rotors


Any questions or application issues please let us know.

GOOD LUCK………

Don’t include me since I already won a pair but my choice would be the Moody Blue “In Search of the Lost Chord” Just because. The Moody Blues are considered part of the Classic Rock artists. I wore a LP of “In Search of the Lost Chord” out when I was in college. (Yeah, I’m that old, I graduated High School in 1968).


104300






Number two would be Simon & Garfunkel’s “Sounds of Silence.” Simon & Garfunkel were part of the folk-rock era and produced about 75 songs. Their songs just seem to talk to me.



104301





Last but not least would be Deep Purple’s “Machine Head.” The top song on this album was probably their iconic “Smoke on the Water.” That song was more or less a documentary about a casino fire. Deep Purple is considered to be some of the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock.



104302





If I could extend that list it would include people such as Joan Baez, Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Lynard Skynard, the Kinks, the Who. As you can see my listening preference is varied.

Just remember if someone says that they remember the 60’s, they probably weren’t there.

1. Led Zeppelin IV - ZOSO - has some of the best rock songs ever, Stairway to Heaven, Rock and Roll, Misty Mountain Hop, Battle of Evermore, which if you listen real close, it was about "The Lord of the Rings"
2. Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed - has the original cut of Country Honk on it. The violin was played by American folk fiddler Byron Berline
3. David Bowie - The Rise and Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars. Lady Stardust was an absolutely great song, most folks don't know it was about Mark Bolan, from T-Rex fame.

When i hear Zepplin's Stairway to Heaven, I always think of the joke about that and AC/DC's Highway to Hell telling where most of the traffic is expected

Great choices, Country Honk is my favourite song on that album too, so awesome!
