I share your admiration and affection for EG. He was an indispensable guide when I first started collecting LPs back in the 1970s. Gramophone had some authority then; I never missed a copy, even though the mag reached southern Africa weeks - even months - late.
I also remember his Saturday record reviews on the BBC World Service. Despite the whoops and whistles of shortwave his enthusiasm came over loud and clear.
And those Penguin Guides - what a treasure trove they were; endlessly thumbed mine soon became very tatty.
Good memories :-)
