LOOKING OUT FOR # 2
When bass player extraordinaire and all around good guy, Sal Maida is not touring the world with Cracker and the legendary Mary Weiss, he is thinking about this:
"How 'bout best sophomore records: Ballad of Todd Rundgren.. , Horizontal, Da Capo, A Quick One, Traffic, Disraeli Gears, etc. Discuss on Burning Wood?"
That was the entirety of an e-mail I received right around Christmas. So I wrote back:
"Great idea. Give me ten and I'll post it."
"Those 6 and Surrealistic Pillow, Radio City, Axis:Bold As Love, Again-Buffalo Sp. I could name more but I'll go with those. Off to L.A. to play with The Dolls and X on Sat."
Before he made it to L.A., I received this:
"Then there's Odessey and Oracle, This Year's Model, The Band, For Your Pleasure, What We Did On Our Holiday."
OK...you got it?
Here are my ten:
THE BAND- THE BAND
THE ZOMBIES- ODESSEY & ORACLE
ELVIS COSTELLO- THIS YEAR'S MODEL
LED ZEPPELIN- II
JIMI HENDRIX- AXIS: BOLD AS LOVE
DAVID BOWIE- THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD
BEASTIE BOYS- PAUL'S BOUTIQUE
BEE GEES- HORIZONTAL
Discuss and tell me what you're thinking....about the list, not the photos.
