Love it! Those were good times... class of '86 in the peninsula. Y&T were my local bay area heroes. I went to SoCal for college and got swept up in the 91x and KROQ alternative bands that my dorm mates introduced me too, and still kept listening to all of my classic rock staples. Nothing wrong with mixing some Adam Ant with Judas Priest ;-)
Funny, I loved Spring Session M - that may have been my first alt-new wave record purchase, even while I was still a teenage metalhead.
Get Happy, Wild Gift, and Wild Planet, along with Pretenders I
Earth Wind & Fire
Good times! Before there was a Good Times! LOL
Back in the '80s, I used to play Scorpions - Blackout.
Not records but a party tape from the early 90's (when I was still single/no kid and had partys)
High school: Toys In The Attic; Fly Like An Eagle; Book Of Dreams.
College: LA Woman was our ultimate party record, with some Brooce, Pink Floyd, Elvis C., Cars and Pretenders in the mix. X and Buzzcocks, too.
And...from Bob Seger’s Live Bullet - Travelin Man/Beautiful Loser and Katmandu....
Maybe the best rowdy party album EVER ...
“Take out your false teeth mama, I wanna suck on your gums ...”
David Crosby - If I could Only Remember My Name
First party I went to in high school I brought my brand new Thriller CD, which was listened to 2 or 3 times in a row and was then promptly stolen. Good times!
Thriller was still that big a deal when it was available on CD?
Yeah, in my small Iowa town everyone was used to country music, so Thriller blew our minds.
Mike McGear & Paul McCartney - McGear (and then King Crimson - Larks' Tongues In Aspic when everyone was to high to get up).
Gap Band, Prince, Cameo, Zapp Band, Chuck Brown, EU, Trouble Funk, and George Clinton in all his guises.

Back in the late 80s/early 90s our parties were soundtracked by Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Jerry Lee etc. We were late teens and early 20s... not a rockabilly crowd. No dressing up etc. We just loved 50s rock n roll to drink to, dance to...
I can't remember, most of them were stolen over the years.
Metal Machine Music when it's getting late and you really need the party to be over...
Back in the early 90s, I achieved the same desired results with the Monks' "Black Monk Time"... now it just gets people dancing!
