Perfect Abums 1

Perfect Albums . . . well, I like making lists of things, so thinking "prefect albums" gives me an opportunity to look over my collection and pick out what I think are the most timeless of my favorite albums. A much longer list, by a more diverse group, would be a list of prefect songs. Another list would be jazz albums . . .

I'm realizing as I'm putting this together, how predictable most of the choices are. So be it then.

Anyway, here's where my head's at this morning:

Bob Dylan – Hightway 61 Revisited
Neil Young – After the Goldrush
Radiohead – OK Computer

Cracker – Kerosene Hat
David Gray – White Ladder

The Jayhawks – Rainy Day Music
Leonard Cohen – I’m Your Man
Lucinda Williams – Car Wheels on a Gravel Road
M. Ward – Transfiguration of Vincent
R.E.M. – Automatic for the People
The Beatles – Let It Be
