Strange Vinyl: Shameless Album Plugs

This is an argument area. Everyone has favorite music and they’ll defend it until their dying day. These are my favorites.  What this list proves is:

A. Much of my life took place in 1989.

B. I am way too laid back.

So, leave me some new material. I am a lifelong listener. If you find something new here that you end up loving, well..then my blog was worthwhile. Sort of.
