94. Geoff Hartwell – Perfect Stranger 2/18
I got time to fit my ole buddy Jefe into this list for sure! I love this album! Will it disappear if I get too close? The album is a little journey in itself. Takes me back to being a freshmen in college and finally going to my first live rock and roll show and seeing Jefe with the band Mad Heed perform The Wall in it’s entirety. It was awesome. Mad Heed was my first live music (small bars) obsession. I went to see them play all over Oneonta and wherever else they would play whenever I could. The only sucky thing for me was that Jefe was only around for 1 more year. I saw as many Mad Heed shows as I could see. I have several recordings that were made on some really low-fi low-fi shit. Wish I could go back and use half of the low-fi equipment I have now in 2011. Yeah this was 1998/99. Some day I’ll dig thru that box of tapes and see if there’s anything of use. Geoff is still doing his thing and plays many live shows in the greater New York city area. Check him out and look up this disc and all of his latest efforts!
95. The Grateful Dead – Terrapin Station 2/18
I would be severly remiss if I didn’t include this. I listened to this album a million times when I first got into it many many years ago in high school. My time coming, any day.. don’t worry about me now. Though Estimated Prophet makes me want to move to California, I never did that. Some day I will have to check the log to see if there’s anything of any use within the piles and piles of scribbles while listening to this album. For a good stretch of half a year or so this and The Doors self titled were the two albums I listened to the most (along with Junta). It doesn’t matter what you wear, just as long as you are there. Some rise, some fall, some climb… to get to Terrapin.
96. Pink Floyd – The Wall 2/18
Let’s bust out another double album that is always a good time. All we are are just bricks in the wall. I haven’t typed much up at all listening to this now. For now, all that I can say is that this is a classic album. There must be some mistake, i didn’t mean to let them take away my soul, am i too old, is it too late??? Bring the boys back home.
97. Talking Heads – Remain In Light 2/18
First album I’ll actually listen to off a CD. That’s pretty sad and awesome. These 200 disc books are heavy, can’t believe I had to carry that around to do a Radio Show.. Now I’d use IPOD, External Drive, Phone.. Same as it ever was!
