John-Paul Mason’s 5 favourite Glasgow albums - including Alex Harvey and Odeon Beatclub

King Tuts booking manager John-Paul Mason sat down with GlasgowWorld to talk about his five favourite Glasgow albums

John-Paul Mason recently celebrated his 500th show at legendary Glasgow venue King Tuts and we sat down with him to discuss his five favourite Glasgow albums.

There has been plenty of special nights and memories during his time at the venue like when The Killers headed to Tuts after their headline set at TRNSMT for a special midnight show in July 2018 or when Liam Gallagher showed up at the venue to record a music video for Come Back To Me a year earlier at the place where it all began for Oasis.

He has also watched some young rising stars take to the stage that have reached the top of the industry with the likes of Sam Fender, Gerry Cinnamon and Lewis Capaldi all playing Tuts before they began to sell out stadiums.

His choices are an eclectic mix and dates all the way back to a release from The Sensational Alex Harvey Band in 1975. These are John-Paul’s top picks.
