    I wouldn't call it greatest of all time but Dirty Honey's debut EP is promising.

    a lot of times, the debut album IS the best album. That is made when the band is hungry and they have done A LOT of practicing. After that, everything falls apart.

    Did I miss these 3? And yes, I know this is actually the Airplane's 2nd album, but it's the first with Grace. [AllCDCovers]_the_byrds_mr_tambourine_man_2003_retail_cd-front.jpg yer-album-55c3392a3dabb.jpg Jefferson_Airplane_Surrealistic_Pillow.jpg

    Great post. I hate to be that guy, but the line goes "They've got womanly breasts under pale mauve vests, shoes like dead pig's noses."

    Ian Dury is one of my all time favorites. Great call.

    And have worked all the songs in front of live audiences.

    Second albums often not so much.

    I tip my hat to you, Spuds
    Peace - Deeve
