Phil's Personal Top Ten


Recommended Posts

I think I'll borrow Lucky's idea of a top 20 for this one:

1. Hey Little Rich Boy - Sham 69

2. 1969 - The Stooges

3. Down By The Water - PJ Harvey

4. Marquee Moon - Television

5. Jesus And Tequila - Minutemen

6. 21st Century (Digital Boy) - Bad Religion

7. Better Off Dead - La Peste

8. Bring It On Home To Me - Sam Cooke

9. El Amor Brujo - Ray Manzarak & Roy Rogers

10. Do You Wanna Dance - The Ramones

11. Vicious - Lou Reed (this and 12 easily could have been top 10 but I really liked "El Amor Brujo")

12. St. James Infirmary - Allen Toussaint

13. Father Daughter Song - Loudon Wainwright III

14. The Seventh Son - Mose Allison

15. Hideaway - John Mayall & The The Bluesbreakers

16. Little Bit Of Sympathy - Robin Trower

17. Mixed Up Shook Up Girl - Patty & The Emblems

18. Oh Susquehanna - Defiance, Ohio

19. Cleanhead's Blues - Cleanhead Vinson

20. Texas Flood - Larry Davis

Classic and covers much of rock's best and purest forms. Nicely done. :bow:

(And it's also nice to know I'm not the only Minutemen fan out there. Double Nickels on the Dime would definitely be in my top 10 American rock albums of the 80's.)

I really enjoyed listening to your picks, Phil.

8, 9 and 10 were all new to me, but I really liked 'em. And "Monday Morning" - The Neighborhoods only just missed out.(Great performance!) Also; Bosco Gordon "Let's Get High" and Patti & The Emblems "Mixed Up Shook Up Girl" were highlights, despite being unfamiliar to me. It says alot when a band like The Ramones (of whom I have about 8 albums) can't make it into my Ten. (Just happened to be a less-favoured track).

Great stuff! :thumbsup:

P.S. Are you still following the mighty Whites? ;)

Nicole, B-F, Martin, Rock and Tim, Thanks for voting and I really appreciate the nice comments.

Yes B-F, I am firmly in The Whites camp. Still shaking off the Gillingham defeat, but am looking forward to putting some hurt on The Dons.

Man, it was easy to cut the list down to 25, but once I was at around 22, I had to listen to the list a coupla more times. I think this is what la creme de la creme sounds like:

01. Ain't Nobody's Business, But My Own - Taj Mahal (so catchy, I had this one on repeat three times).

02. Mona - Bo Diddley

03. The Seventh Son - Mose Allison

04. Move It On Over - Hank Williams

05. Nine Pound Hammer - Johnny Cash

06. California Blues - Jimmie Rodgers

07. It Takes A Worried Man - Stanley Brothers

08. Marquee Moon - Television

09. Down By The Water - PJ Harvey (studio version, though)

10. Do You Wanna Dance - The Ramones (I also woulda accepted the T. Rex version :cool: )

Country is where it's at. What ever happened to real Country music? :elvis:
