Safe Mode: On
Blind FaithUnited Kingdom Blind Faith
Tremendous album by this one off supergroup featuring Steve Winwood and Eric Clapton among other greats. Presence of The Lord nd Can't find my way home are two of the eras best songs and are among a group of excellent tracks from this album. Truly legendary album by this band that lasted all too briefly.

AjaUnited States Steely Dan
One of the most polished records ever recorded. Becker and Fagen are masters at crafting elegant full and seamless albums. They are so talented as both musicians and sardonic commentators on society. This was one of my favorite albums to put on and have a few drinks in my younger days. Timeless masterpiece.

What's Going OnUnited States Marvin Gaye
Socially conscious and sonically brilliant. A truly great record that Gaye had to fight to get Motown to put out. A classic that has grown in stature over its long existence.

Hooteroll?United States Howard Wales & Jerry Garcia
An album that I honestly think I enjoy more every time I listen to it. Jazzy Funky and downright awesome. Wales and Garcia go great together.I could listen to this every day but there's so much other great stuff. Wish my time to listen to music was limitless.

Surrealistic PillowUnited States Jefferson Airplane
San Fran/ Haight Ashbury Era classic from the summer of love. Acid drenched beauty contains The Alice In Wonderland inspired classic White Rabbit as well as Somebody to love. Jerry Garcia is credited on the album cover for Spiritual guidance or something ti that effect. A great slice of a bygone era.

Born In The U.S.A.United States Bruce Springsteen
One of the very few times the masses got it right. this album sold tons of copies and it is deserved. the title cut mistakingly seen by some as a patriotic anthem is a biting criticism of Reagan Era america. Catchy sure but still has a certain depth to go with the typical Springsteen charm.

Fear Of MusicUnited States Talking Heads
Post Punk New Wave Funk I don't know how else to describe the band or the album. Fantastic song craft in a sound that still sounds like its coming from the future as do Byrne's amazing vocals.

Not much in common (only 8 albums & 8 artists) but phenomenal choices in rock, hip-hop, funk, soul, prog, jazz, etc. Super rich and inclusive. Great notes too. Loved seeing Cat Stevens at #12, he was one of my first loves and that album was among the first few I owned. I saved some of your rap selections to listen to later. None of your choices seemed cliche (Even Beatles at #1), I'm glad you chose this method of entry. Saving this chart to my favorites.

I liked reading your notes. They are really sensible. And I liked what you wrote about trying to make an honest chart about what are REALLY your favorite albums, rather than what you think SHOULD be your favorite albums. But even that isn't as easy as it sounds, as I've discovered.
