    Okay, so it’s a cold day and even four cups of coffee haven’t snapped my mind into focus. Thought seems to be impressionist; while the landscape is angular with frost, I’m soft. At such times I get nostalgic…

    What are your favourite ‘popular’ albums by decade? I’ll start with my childhood, the 1960s:

    Bill Evans: ‘Waltz for Debby’ (1961)
    Jackie McLean: ‘Destination Out!’ (1963)
    Bob Dylan: ‘Highway 61 Revisited’ (1965)
    Love: ‘Forever Changes’ (1967)
    Jefferson Airplane: ‘Surrealistic Pillow’ (1967)
    The Byrds: ‘Younger Than Yesterday’ (1967)
    Incredible String Band: ‘The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter’ (1968)
    Jefferson Airplane: ‘Crown of Creation’ (1968)
    Nick Drake: ‘Five Leaves Left’ (1969)
    Fairport Convention: ‘Leige & Lief’ (1969)
    Soft Machine: ‘Soft Machine Volume 2’ (1969)

    – I know, how about ‘The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society’, ‘The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn’, ‘Trout Mask Replica’, ‘Monster Movie’, ‘Astral Weeks’, anything (and everything) by ?



    i listened to none of the below mentioned



    in 1963, i was 8 years old, and for my birthday that year my older brother gave me the first beatles album. that was the start of a continuing obsession with music. my life just seemed to make sense when i was listening to music.
    aside from the beatles, we were digging 45’s by the kinks, the who (happy jack was a big favorite), ?



    i just corrected a grammar fault. hope that now it is o.k., but does anyone know how i can avoid those smilies and stars which coming automatically out of nowhere?

    and by the way: i forgot to mention two



    You people seem to have excellent taste, Robert Wyatt aside! :)
