    Not sure why that would have anything to do with my interest in seeing more discussion, actually seems like if you were new there would be even more reason to discuss your picks. But whatever, it wasn't a criticism. It's something I could say in most threads here, so many people just post a picture, or youtube link without even a mention of why. Just seems a little odd on a music discussion board, that's all :)

    And btw, my first post(s) around here were probably meandering and long-winded, and ultimately forgettable, but that shouldn't deter others from adding a few personal comments to their lists :)

    Gaucho - Steely Dan -- just perfect any time.

    12 Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus (or Family That Plays Together). Can't decide, love them both.

    Thirds -- James Gang (or Joe Walsh - So What) -- Same problem

    East West -- Butterfield Blues Band -- Best blues album ever!

    Forever Changes -- Love -- a masterpiece
