    Also Camper Van B. and Cracker.


    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

    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.

    [​IMG] 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 [​IMG]

    The first two albums I ever bought - Green Day 'Dookie' and Offspring 'Smash', Way back in 4th or 5th grade.

    Actually I had an Ace of Bass cassette back in 3rd or 4th grade, but that doesn't count [​IMG] .


    Wow you are old....that is some classics man......[​IMG]

    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...
