    That’s awesome. I became a fan right before Audio of Being was released, which to this day is probably my favorite album, period. I remember writing a report on MGB in high school and I’ve introduced a number of friends to his music, too. He’s probably my favorite overall artist. I usually like at least a handful of songs from each solo album still.

    Cant really say the same about OLP. I was obsessed with them for their first four albums. After that I haven’t really cared for any of their stuff save for a song or two here and there.

    But still cool to see some recognition for two really important bands for me growing up.

    I also liked Finger Eleven, Moneen and Marianas Trench for a couple years.

    I might have missed them reading through the pages, but I don't think The Sadies have been mentioned yet.

    I haven't seen Kata & Anna McGarrigle mentioned. A bit before my time, but phenomenal singers and great songwriters. Here is one song in English and another in French to celebrate our bilingualism eh.

    Also! Valdy's Rock & Roll Song is a great tune. I'll be quiet now.

    About four years ago, i was working a maintenance turnaround at the CNRL oilsands plant north of Fort McMurray. I met the keyboard player (I don't think he's the one on the original 1979-81 recordings but could be wrong) there. We were sitting near each other in the lunchroom and got to talking. Coincidentally, I had the CD Best of Payolas in my truck for listening on those long drives.

    Definitely one of my favorite Canadian bands.

    I saw Lighthouse in August of 1972 at the Goulds race track, next door to St. John's, Newfoundland.
