You probably never saw the comedy series The Young Ones - there is a hippy character, called Neil, two of my favourite Neil quotes "I won't say anything because no one ever listens to me anyway. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record."
"He's gonna get us and turn us into vampires! And we'll all be dead and yet still alive! Like Leonard Cohen!"

:-)

This was a difficult choice. I decided to go for the albums that I am happy to play at random knowing that I enjoy every track. I excluded "best of" compilations and tried to stick to original releases. Even so, my first pass produced 15 titles so I did some ruthless pruning and I am left with these 10.

After The Gold Rush, Neil Young
=== I really can't decide which is my favourite track though "Birds" is the weakest

The Bootleg Series, Vol. 1-3 [Rare & Unreleased] 1961-1991, Bob Dylan
=== Despite the title the three parts of this set have never been released individually. Nor is it a bootleg release. It contains different versions of some old favourites and some others, "Blind Willie McTell", "Golden Loom" and "Catfish" for example, which were new releases.

Born In The U.S.A., Brice Springsteen
=== Born to Run was culled from the list but six of its eight tracks are as good as any on this album.

Cosmo's Factory, Creedence Clearwater Revival
=== Individual tracks on earlier and later albums were better than many on here, but CF is consistently good.

Goodbye, Cream
=== Three live versions of earlier tracks and three new studio songs make for an excellent set.

Highway 61 Revisited, Bob Dylan
=== Many of Dylan's albums are among my to 50 but this is one with no weak tracks

Katy Lied, Steely Dan
=== The peak of their career, though as with so many others the other albums have minor flaws and many highs

Live!, Bob Marley and the Wailers
=== I bought this on vinyl at the same time as Natty Dread but have always considered it the better of the two

Transformer, Lou Reed
=== I seem to have acquired quite a few of Reed's live albums - all good - but none of them or his solo studio albums surpasses this one

The Velvet Underground & Nico
=== In a sporting context, after a hole in one off the first tee, you can't go anywhere but down after that

I am a great fan of

Robert Fripp (married to Toyah Wilcox)
Penguin Cafe Orchestra - a lot of people have not heard of them but if you listen to their music you suddenly think this sounds familiar. A lot has been used as links in TV programs and adverts. When in Rome is very good

I think Robert Fripp is better known from King Crimson than his marriage to Toyah

Re Velvet Underground - Sunday Morning, and Waiting for My Man, of course, classics, but Heroin, it could benefit from a bit of editing.

Strange man,Robert Fripp. Almost pathologically shy and a brilliant guitarist. This is your life for Toyah brought him on and he sat next to her and would hardly say a word. As time progressed you could see that he was gripping her hand very tightly and slowly moving his chair so that he was partly concealed behind her.!! At one King crimson concert they had a room divider (like the things women used to change behind in Westerns ... concertina doors) and he played the whole gig standing out of sight behind it.!!

As I said... a strange man.

I don't see anybody coming up with new or trendy music - what are you seeing that I am missing?

I'm sorry I paid for a better class of argument than this... You are trying to goad an argument. Sorry not biting, especially over something as unimportant as music.
