Doors - L. A. Woman
UB40 - Red Red Wine
Ramones - Blitzkrieg Bop
Joe Cocker - Feelin' Alright
Joe Walsh - Rocky Mountain Way
Billy Idol - Rebel Yell
John Cafferty - On the Dark Side
Tom Petty - American Girl
Faces - Stay With Me

One inch of new snow and 13 degrees... at least my ears stayed warm!

Sounds like my Junior High days. Minus King Crimson and Smokey Robinson.

Memory twitch: one of the guys I carpooled with at university had an 8-track deck with only 2 tapes; one was Court of the Crimson King. I didn't like it to start with, but I came to genuinely hate it after a few weeks. It was usually played loud with extra distortion for my "benefit." I can't even see the name King Crimson written without getting a shudder.

Smokey Robinson will be appearing at a local club Feb. 3, and we've been contemplating going. I loved his sound, but after being disappointed by the Temptations in their revival (only 1 original one still with them) show I'm not so keen on having another good remembrance shattered. It will be a Miracle if Smokey can still hit those high notes.
Seaq, the King Crimson I listened to was not that era. I may be older than Spo, but not that old. Big Grin Gone was Greg lake, replaced by Adrian Belew and the music became funkier. Bill Bruford was the drummer. In fact Robert Fripp was the only common member between those two eras. The albums were called Beat and Discipline.
