captains dead’s favorite records of all time 1-25

honestly, i have no idea why i even started this? i was sitting on my couch the other evening, and got to thinking bout my favorite records. next thing i know, im downloading album covers, uploading album covers, gathering songs and uploading said songs. again, i have no idea why other than the thought. shit, i have lots of thoughts but rarely do i follow through with any of em.

as i said in a previous post, this list is monumentally flawed. flawed for many reasons, all of which should be pretty obvious. with any list like this, these are personal favorites and doesnt mean i think they are the greatest records ever created, then again they are my favorite’s so i must think pretty damn highly of em. its probably pretty standard 36 year old guy fare, but they mean a hell of a lot to me.

most people start at the back and work forward, not me i tell ya. my lil brain doesnt work in such a way. 26-50 will probably be posted tomorrow or monday.

  2. jefferson cosgrove says:

    nothing to ashamed of here…..i would list many of these at the top of my list. excellent site!!

  3. I haven’t listened to that Chris Whitley album in a LONG time. Whitley gave me a copy of it when I saw him play solo at UCSD. He was a cool cat who wouldn’t accept money from a poor college student. Now I wish I paid him because I got the better end of the deal. GREAT album.

      awesome! yeah i met chris a few times over the years in chicago, and he was always very humbled, or at least seemed so, by his popularity. he was a good soul and is sorely missed.
