Have a Nice Weekend, Kids

Boy, you sure can do a lot worse than this record.

My generation's "Revolver," I think.

Unless you disagree, which you're free to do in the Comments section. I won't stop you. Let's see what you come up with by Monday.

Now off to get on top of the weeding.

(My generation: Born 1955-65.)

A good choice but personally I think Bowie's album Ziggy Stardust would be a contender. (Bowie's career started in the late 60s but it didn't really get rolling til Hunky Dory).

Both artists were a big influence on me back in the day, along with Zeppelin, Queen (their early work is still strong even today) and the New York Dolls, and later on Blondie, the Police and the Pretenders.

I can only speak for myself here, but no one artist is the be-all and end-all of my music development. I admired and followed several, some more strongly than others, many of whom didn't arrive til the 80s and 90s.

I did much weeding and feeding this weekend!

"Heaven" and "Memories Can't Wait" are near-perfect....

But two albums really shook me up in 1980: The Clash - Sandinista, and Elvis Costello - Get Happy!

Changed the way I listened to music.
