Steely Dan: The Royal Scam – This has one of the worst album covers of the 70s, Steely Dan themselves think this is true too. I don’t know much about these guys, this is album number 5, released in 1976, they are described as a jazz rock band.
Patti Smith: Horses – Joy of joys! JB Hi-Fi have come to Dubbo, so my first purchase is Patti’s debut, after reading her books I was keen to get some of her music, have heard a bit of her stuff before of course, but great to hear her debut. And that cover is of course a classic.
Bruce Springsteen: Born to Run – Classic album from Bruce featuring the tops title track, which was a make or break deal for Bruce, after his first two records he was determined to hit the big time with this record. And he did. The song Born to Run took 6 months to complete, was worth the time spent on it as sounds great cranked up to 11.
