My 50 Favorite Albums (continued)
This list is in danger of becoming a greatest hits list with London Calling, Joshua Tree, Kind of Blue, Nevermind, and Exile on Main Street.
It’s not supposed to be the best records of all time. It’s supposed to my favorite 50 albums.
Now I don’t feel like I’ve strayed from my mission which is to list my 50 favorite records, but maybe I’ve leaned toward to most obvious choices.
So it’s time to reach deep down and come up with a record that’s going to generate some controversy.
Tonight I came home from a long week at work and The Gotham Gal had one of my all time favorites on the airwaves.
Martin & Me is J. Mascis’ version of going "unplugged" with his favorite Dinasour Jr tunes, and a few other songs like Carly Simon’s Anticipation, Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Every Mother’s Son, and The Smiths’ Boy With The Thorn In His Side.
I have always loved Dinasour Jr. and the reason is J. Mascis. He is among the best guitarists I’ve ever heard.
I could listen to this record every week for the rest of my life and never get tired of his raspy vocals and some of the most incredible acoustic guitar playing I have ever heard.
Thanks Jo – you get an assist for this one.
