The music is what matters most...

On this page I'll list the band's CDs, 7-inches, bootlegs, sampler appearances, and anything else I know about. I'll include a picture of the CD jacket (if I have one), a track list, and my own comments. I'll also include a sample sound file, if I can get my hands on one.

Here's an example of a format I might use for the entries in my discography.

Born To Run
Columbia Records, 1975

Track List:
Thunder Road, Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out, Night, Backstreets, Born to Run, She's the One, Meeting Across the River, Jungleland

I love the moment when the whole band comes in on "Thunder Road" and the wails at the end of "Jungleland." "She's the One" is the weakest song.

Favorite CD

In this area I'll talk about my favorite CD by this band. I'll try to explain why I think it's the band's best work and why it's important to me personally.

Favorite Song

Billie Holiday: Georgia on My Mind
Lionel Hampton: On the Sunny Side of the Street
Count Basie: Oh, Lady Be Good
