The Gods Have Spoken.

*(I ran out of time before work I will re-read and edit this post tonight)*

So with a very small portion of my tax return I decided to buy some more music for my beloved vinyl collection. At this early stage in my collecting I am only picking up the albums and artist that are most near and dear to my heart.  Also the other night it suddenly hit me that I hadn’t heard an album I listened to all the time when in my late high school and early college day in a very very long time.  I decided I was going to compile a list of my personal favorite albums of all time.  Just so we are clear on this, I’m not saying these are the best albums of all time, just that they are “my favorites”.  In doing so I hope to have a place I can always go to remind me what music I might be missing both in a physical manner (AKA vinyl) and in a personal way (AKA listening).  It also give you the ability to maybe discover some new stuff.

Some of you have read a bit of my previous posts (and for thosesome of you know me personally),  so some of this list will not be a surprise to you at all.  This list is in no particular order at the moment.  I am going to list my top 50, which is a very small amount of the music I listen to.  I will try to put them in some semblance of order this weekend.  From time to time I may even add and subtract from this list as I discover new loves, or just change my tastes.
