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

Posted by gregor on Saturday, June 12th, 2010

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.

    i need to give liz phair a shot.

  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.

  4. WhiskeyT says:

    Fuckin Grant Lee Buffalo, so damned underrated

  5. I like seeing “For the Beauty of Wynona” in there. That Liz Phair album too. Nice.

  6. Tsuru says:

    Wonderful capt…… wonderful.

  7. Phantom fucking Power. Incredible.

  8. myboyblue says:

    Good list… many would make my top 25 as well. Sorely missing some Replacements though. Maybe knock out that Paul Simon album? :-)

  9. Dwayne says:

    That’s a very solid list.

  10. peterryard says:

    more mor more. the next fifty. thank you very much

  11. Lee says:

    It’s frightening how close this would be to my own list. Let’s hug.

  12. Tsuru says:

    wow… what a fantastic list!!!! <3 Nice one capt!

      holy springsteen, dan bejar! i, admittedly, have not dug too much of bejar’s work since the first destroyer record, which is like one of the best bowie records bowie never released, and is still one of my favorites to this day. i love the thought of his work, but in reality we dont alway connect.
