This is a great list... don't you have a ticket stub from one of the concerts in the playlist? ;)

Our posts have aligned, sort of. I just posted on the anniversary of the Isle of Wight Festival 1970.

That Queen ticket's from my 6th birthday. Probably would've been an inappropriate gift I suppose.

Furthermore, that Nuge quote rules.

Oh, and I nearly forgot, "Who here likes the taste of vodka and orange juice?!!"

Frampton Comes Alive--wasn't that issued with suburban home loans from 1973 to 1978. Along with the soundrack to 'Grease!' and the K-Tel collection 'Southern Fried Rock.' With the big fried egg cover and Molly Hatchet's only hit?

Oh, and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack, though I try to block that from memory because it's essentially whitey disco.

KISS was my Sesame Street, Gene Simmons was my Big Bird. I hate Weather Report and the Rolling Stones but I love Jaco's work with Pat Metheny and how they put Mick Jagger's lips on Angelina Jolie.

Cheap Trick, who could not love those shoes? And the wild guitars?

RUSH. God, if you play guitar and don't grow up with a hard on for RUSH you are guitar-queer or something.

Speaking of which, I notice some glaring omissions from your 70's list. Pavlov's Dog ('Pampered Menial' especiialy, before the orginal band was broken up), the original Van Halen album, Utah Phillips' 'All Used Up,' and John Scofield 'Live' with Richie Beirach, Geroge Mraz and Joe LaBarbera at the Domicile in Munich in 1977...

Drew: There's gotta be some people out there that like to drink tequila!

Of course I agree about the Nuge, and will always be thankful you wove that quote into the dancefloor mix you created for my wedding reception. Especially when Aunt Tilly really did turn around and get the fuck out of there...

Chixu: You're 100% right, of course, and hilariously so. I'm a little limited because this is a Rhapsody playlist blog and not all albums are in there.

Drake: I'm on my way to the Isle of Wight soon as I hit this Login and Publish button.
