Organization: i'm a bohemian

hello people! it certainly is great to have the list back! muchas gracias to whoever is responsible. it's always interesting when a jb list closes because, although we usually lose some people, we eventually make up for it with newbies. glad to see that there's many other jb "appreciators" still out there.

well, i'm gonna give in to temptation this time and post my top 10 albums. they're in order of how much they have affected my life:

1. ani difranco - not a pretty girl
2. jeff buckley - uh....lets see...the choices are limitless...Grace?
3. tori amos - little earthquakes
4. ani difranco - dilate (she has 8 albums and it was pretty hard to limit myself to just list two)
5. sarah mclachlan - fumbling towards ecstasy
6. indigo girls - indigo girls
7. red hot chili peppers - uplift mofo party plan (this record came YEARS before they sold their souls to mtv--sorry, i'm just a little bitter)
8. enya - shepherd moons
9. toad the wet sprocket - fear
10. the doors - the doors

an honorable mention goes to any album created by the, now, disassembled

oingo boingo.


On a related topic to name dropping, David posted Jeff's favorite albums of last year on the Sony web page, so I will post some of mine...

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion-Now I got Worry
Aimee Mann-I'm with stupid Afghan

All the late-sixties-early-seventies-british-blues-boom-classic-rock-shut-up'n-play-yer-guitar-rock stuff (Hendrix, Zep, Clapton, Doors...), Lou Reed, Neil Young, John Coltrane, Frank Zappa, reggae (Bob & the W., Burning Spear, LKJ..), James brown, Nick Drake as well... and also some classical music.
