The Jam - Greatest hits..

bit of the modfather to sleep to..

I've been a Jam fan since the mid 80's. Most of my collection is on vinyl, except for those really early singles. Have most of the LP's though. One of the most underrated bands.... Ever!

Well let's see...

The first record I ever bought was Black Sabbath. it was the one that had "Iron Man" and "War Pigs" on it. I think I was 7 or 8 years old. I grew up in Southern California and by the time I was in High School the Los Angeles Punk Rock scene was getting to a boil. There were some epic gigs at the Whiskey... Circle Jerks, Fear... Oh man, the slam dancing and stage dives (and riots) were.... uh.... fun?

My favorite from that time (and still today) is Social Distortion. I have seen them a few times in the last couple of years and they are really good live. Mike Ness is a bad ass.

I have many on my Ipod that TFF is listening to. I am stuck on older AC/DC (Bon Scott era), especially the live recordings. "She's got the Jack"...

got a fair few bits, but the laptop likes greatest hits at bedtimes.. i usually fall asleep by about track 4 :D

i have the occasional vinyl day.. I dont know about underrated, they still have a cult following, forgotten a little i think.. ended up sleeping to the jam and the kinks muddled together on shuffle.. :D

Been listening to the English Beat and the Specials all morning.

Now the late morning caffeine overdose has brought out the P-rock in me today. Bad Brains and Reagan Youth is on deck. At this moment I'm spinning my 'This is BOSTON not LA' comp. Man this stuff brings back memories.:rolleyes:

Wow, some great selections. My all time favourites are bands like Cold Chisel, Talking Heads, Queen, and Bruce Springsteen. However, I do enjoy a fairly wide range of music.

Australian bands like Cold Chisel, AC/DC, Midnight Oil, The Black Sorrows, Hoodoo Gurus, Mental As Anything, The Angels, Paul Kelly, and Crowded House (well OK, really a Kiwi band).

60s and 70s stuff like The Doors, Rolling Stones, The Animals, Beach Boys, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Creedence, Eric Clapton, John Fogerty, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Santana, Steve Miller Band, and Van Morrison.

80s music from Bruce Springsteen, Talking Heads, John Mellencamp, Dire Straits, Billy Joel, Elton John, Lloyd Cole and the Commotions, Eurythmics, The Police, and David Bowie.

Jazz is great when I am in the right mood, particularly the incomparable Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Nina Simone. More recent fun jazz is The Lost Fingers.

I have always enjoyed Blues with a bit of edge, particularly George Thorogood and the Destroyers, John Lee Hooker and Ry Cooder.

I have occasionally been found stomping my feet to country music after watching "Walk the Line", so Johnny Cash and the Dixie Chicks.

I am not too familiar with classical, but my wife listens to it all the time and I actually quite enjoy it. I like listening to good guitar work, especially John Williams, so Flyor64's recommendation of Rodrigo y Gabriela was excellent. I also put Mark Knopfler in this category.

And finally, I am more and more enjoying "alternative" and occasionally quieter rock music like Arkells, Beck, Ben Harper, some of Ben Lee's stuff (Awake is the New Sleep), City and Colour, The Corrs, Cowboy Junkies, Elliott Brood, Franz Ferdinand, The Fray, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, The Killers, Neko Case, Dido, Norah Jones, Nickelback, Sarah McLachlan, Serena Ryder, Stone Temple Pilots, and Alanis Morrisette when she is angry!

I had two great sing-along songs on the radio last week, both in one day: The Joker, by Steve Miller Band, and Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison.

Lol, guess I'm showing my age!

On the other hand, my singing along embarassed the hell out of my teen-aged son, so it was worth it!

Susan

not sure if youre showing your age, or youre taste in cheesy music.. :D

Youve missed Baker Street from the list..

Ok... Lunchtime has rolled around and I'm enjoying a ham sandwich with some CACTUS. Then I think I'll rock some NUGENT to get a STRANGLEHOLD on these wheels.

Build wheels and listen to music all day... What a life! .:) I'd post that in the occupation thread, but everybody already knows what I do for a living.:rolleyes:

Yeah... Social D and Minor Threat. I still have both on my ipod right this second. A little West Coast/East Coast Punk thang...

Like I said, Mike Ness is a bad ass.

You posted a mock of the Stooges. Iggy Pop has been around a long, long, long time. I saw him moonlight a David Bowie concert in the mid-eighties. Pretty cool. Peter Frampton was the lead guitarist for that tour. I sat next to a lit David Lee Roth. Good times :)
