Horace,

I'm digging your choices. I just picked up some Camper Van on CD that I used to have on vinyl way back when.

Some other old stuff that I never seem to get tired of:

Pixies
Galaxie 500
Nick Cave
NoMeansNo
Uncle Tupelo
Undertones
Wire
Fleshtones

I guess I should throw out my own rec's:

-Neil Young "Harvest"
-Sun Kil Moon "Ghosts of the Great Highway"
-James Brown "Live at the Apollo"
-Marvin Gaye "The Master Collection" (it's basically every track he ever did, so I figure I'll be ok)
-Ryan Adams "Gold"
-Muddy Waters "Folk Singer"

-Crosby, Stills & Nash: Crosby, Stills & Nash
-Vladimir Horowitz: Horowitz in Moscow
-Tina Turner: Private Dancer
-Peter Gabriel: So
-Huey Lewis & the News: Fore!
-Mozart: Requiem
-The Chieftains: Any album, pretty much.
-The Band: The Last Waltz
-Stephen Stills: Manassas
-Fleetwood Mac: Rumours
-The Wolfe Tones: 25th Anniversary
-Robert Palmer: Very Best Of
-Carole King: Tapestry

Allow me to say something about Ms. Cook...no one alive has a voice like hers. It's seriously phenomenal.

So yeah, my music tastes are odd, especially for someone my age. To each his own, they say!

Nice, another shout to Muddy Waters, and, yes, that's a young Buddy Guy on acoustic guitar on that album.

And a second shout to Horowitz as well.

[quote=Horace]A lot of the stuff above I like. Morphine was great.QUOTE]

I was in the Plough and Stars in Cambridge the other night. After a recent change of ownership and renovation it recently reopened and I felt the need to visit as its only a ten minute walk. The connection with that place and Sandman is amazing. If only I could have been born 10 years younger to see him play there at his neighborhood bar. Only two different musicians do I get a weird chill when I hear their music, (part smile and part sadness). Those two being Jeff Buckley and Mark Sandman from Morphine. Knowing each died so young and so tragic really throws me for a loop. It doesn't help when you hear Do Not Go Quietly Unto Your Grave from Good or Last Goodbye from Grace.

on 808 State. My wife is much more in to The Cure and Depeche Mode than I am - not a fan. However, I have found myself veering awfully close to DM with some of the other stuff I listen to, especially some futurepop/synthpop. Funny

Nice to see Rumours being thrown up, Dreams is one of my favourite songs of all time. Stevie Nicks circa Rumours could also go in the unusal crushes thread as well...
