    Vague post construction on my part. GBV, Summer, Brown and SoM belong on great runs list.

    I like the egomaniac stuff too. Good songs spew from Bob's head.

    Re: Great Musical Runs

    I can't believe that nobody has mentioned the band that was--without a doubt--the greatest rock band ever assembled:

    The (Bloody) Who

    In a little over four years, they knocked out not one--but two--lengthy rock operas, a kick ass live album and oh, by the way, a decent little studio effort for good measure:

    Tommy (1969)
    Live at Leeds (1970)
    Who's Next (1971)
    Quadrophenia (1973)

    Go ahead and add The Who Sell Out to that list. Twice if you have to. That album RULES.

    Actually, it was more like the girl that I took to the show was madly in love with Robin Zander from Cheaptrick. I was just trying to take one for the team... :dancingco

    I dunno, call me silly for still playing those stupid vinyl records, but I've gotten a kick out of these for a long time. In my mind nothing beats slumping down in my record room for a few hours on a tuesday afternoon spinning them and drinking beer.

    No one's ever accused me of being some kinda sophisticate anyway.

    I just heard Raw Power for the first time last week. You're right- it might be a great album. Wish I would have heard it a long time ago.

    My pick:

    Bob Dylan 1962
    The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan 1963
    The Times They Are A Changing 1964
    Another Side of Bob Dylan 1964
    Bringing It All Back Home 1965
    Highway 61 Revisited 1965
    Blonde on Blonde 1966
    John Wesley Harding 1967
    Nashville Skyline 1969

    A magnificent achievement and it sounds better today than it did when it came out.

    And then into the sublime Mary Anne with the Shaky Hands. Lets face it, the Briitsh Invasion was the most significant cultural event of the 20th century. Hell, nobody's even mentioned the Stones yet.

    Go out and get Cobra Verde's "Easy Listening" record, or anything by Death of Samantha (John Petkovic's first band), then tell me who wrote those guitar parts.

    You won't be disappointed, trust me.

    I understand how you might think that, and I,m as big a Stones fan as any....

    But let's not pretend they invented Rock n' Roll. The Brits just made it more palatable to the largely racist American populace at that time.

    If you wanna say that the melding of Blues,and Country in a very raw and primal way, with dirty drum beats and hip gyrations and naughty lyrics (rock n roll) was the most significant cultural event of the twentieth century, I'd agree with you.

    But those mop tops from Liverpool didn't invent the dang thing.

    The term Rock n' Roll used to be a slang used by black folks in the 1930's. It alluded to how the bed would rock, and subsequenty roll across the floor during coital relations.

    Them music's meant to be dirty, primal, raw and nasty....It wasn't for mass consumption 'cept for the few in the white community that had no problem with it.

    The British just piled on the gentrification wagon that started rolling when a guy named Elvis made it okay to listen to.

    In no way am I denegrating what bands like the Stones (who are one of my favorite bands), and the Kinks did. They wrote great songs. I'm not really into the Beatles because of the cutsie image they purveyed at first, and the hippie image they purveyed near the end. The very things that endeared them to a very conservative American public. I'll give 'em credit though, they really knew how to play the angles with the media, and they got the girlies screaming.
