Naw, I'm not into the whole whipping thing.

Hell yeah it's hard, the seven change daily. Birth of Cool? Wasn't that Mooselini's campaign theme, gosh darnit?

What are you trying to say? you MOCK my music? as far as the Birth of Cool, that is also the nickname for my birthday, mister so watch out.

now then. just because Led Zeppelin ain't on the list, you gotta go and hate. typical.

Happy to be on your list of the new!

Wow,I better get to work. Probably (possibly?) easier than coming up with a coherent post.

PS hope to meet up before you leave for the states!

amy- are you guys back? what's up for the weekend, if so? how about lunch or dinner on Sunday - something easy .... meet 1/2 way or something... call me (or I'll call you!)

Methinks you're projecting. The Mighty Zep wasn't on my list and surely I wouldn't mock myself!

Thanks for participating in the Blogger Album Project. I have added your selections to the main list. I was unable to use your Miles Davis because it was released too early (we start at 1955). However, the Edith Piaf, Robert Johnson and Django Reinhart releases were remastered an released later than '55, so I included them. Plus, we're only allowing seven selections from each person, so I took your top seven (- Miles and + Billy Joel).

Thanks again for participating,
