    Mink Rat or Rabbit - The Detroit Cobras
    77 - Talking Heads
    Red Clay - Freddie Hubbard
    Holly - Nick Waterhouse

    Just about any Donna Summer Disco era LP still sounds like magic.

  4. Get the party started with as many friends, beer & hash as possible. And to kick it off I would drop this A-bomb in the winter of 1982, cranked to 11. We were 16 years-old & in high-school...

    Usually went for some laid back smooth jazz at our house parties. Stuff like Peter Brotzmann's Machine Gun.

    Full House by J. Geils Band, a few years later it was Some Girls, followed of course by Thriller. After that I started making my own party mix tapes.

    Every party I ever went to in the '80s played The Kings' “This Beat Goes On/Switchin' To Glide”. It might have been a law.

    Well in high school I brought King Crimson’s Islands to a party. Perhaps it’s not so hard to believe I wasn’t at many parties :)

    The first I can remember, at a drinking party, was a friend's house when I was 13. That album was...........


    Though, there might have been other things being smoked............:evil:

    At my July 4th and New Years Eve parties, it was this one.............

    I wouldn't dare take any of my personal platters, but I did keep a few beater copies of stuff like Best of the Doobies and ZoSo to bring so I could seem personable.

    Pity we didn't have today's tech - pair your phone to Bluetooth and serve up your party playlist.

    I would have had to go to parties, but I never really did. Not that I am or was a loner. Instead, I've either:

    (1) Gone to parties where there was live music, only because I was one of the live musicians,
    (2) Hung out with one to a handful of friends, usually musicians, where we usually play each other new discoveries that we think the other guys will enjoy or at least find interesting,
    (3) Hung out with girlfriends

    I can't say that I've never been to a "normal party," but I've not been to many of them. The few I went to I was uncomfortable at, partially because of rowdy, drunk people, and partially because when there's loud music playing, I can't talk to anyone--I can't make out what they're saying. For that reason I never hung out at clubs/bars with loud music, etc. either.

    "Let's Dance On" by the Monkees often ended up on party mix tapes when I was in college (early-mid '80s).
