@Bukowski Before you go you MUST check out my current jam - not music, but pee your pants funny....CLASSIC! You know this guy, you hate him, it is well worth 30 minutes of your time, just wear adult diapers - I will want a written report - you'll get that joke after you listen. Got turned onto this in '92 lost it just found it well worth it - promise - pass on:) Music history and sarcasm as we are all Scholars:)

Hard to argue with Be My Baby—really hard!—but come back in a couple days when I post mine (which I likewise consider the greatest pop song ever recorded).

Great taste Paul I am guessing these are your all time top 50? ...49.45.40.34.33.29.24.22.16.12.6.4.1. would be in my top 20.

@crawtonleek That's @AndyWilkinson dept.

Bukowski

@lindatee I don't want to drag it out. Like a Band-Aid.

aHandfulOfRain

That's a very fine list, presumably the real one has more Pink Floyd albums. In the words of #4, "I will see you in the next lifeeeeee".

3 years, 10 months ago

AndyWilkinson

That's a mighty fine list. Good idea including the Fall's complete Peel Sessions - 6 CDs that neatly encompasses the majority of the career of the Best Band Ever.

No more @Bukowski jams? *Sobs* Weird how your Jams have become an integral part of my weeks over the last three years. Just wanted to say a huge THANKS for sharing your musical insights. I've really enjoyed the journey.

I demand a total recall - how do you explain the complete absence of one of "only 2 post-1945 musical geniuses" sir? How can the other one only be at no. 2? Unacceptable, Incomprehensible and unexpected. Love your jams! Loved your quirky obsessively repeated comments just as much!

Great jams, thank you. Will you be heading to LetsLoop to join us ex-Jammers?

3 years, 10 months ago

BertrandRustles

I look at that list and remember many great discussions about many albums on it. A great selection of Jams from you over these past few years for which I shall remain most grateful as I visit your archive in the months to come. Hope we'll see you over there somewhere Paul. Cheers fella.

A great old classic, from when I was a kid! Thanks! In case someone has not heard, and sorry to be repetitive: When the party here is over, most of us are going to here: http://www.letsloop.com It is not the fine toy Jam was, but they are young and growing! Also, there is a F/B page for X jammers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/229952510523950/ There is also this: http://bullfrogjams.tumblr.com/ See you there! LLAP! Spread the word.

Thanks so much for your company and your jams over the past few years. It's been a pleasure to know you and I hope our paths cross again. So for the last time - great jam :)

A fine choice for your last jam :) Goodbye, sir! It's been a pleasure.

I knew it was your jam when it started playing :P but why the last one already? :(

@HappyZebra Don't want to drag it out.

So long and thanks for all the trout Paul. If you have a blog or something where you talk about why you love those albums (particularly the geniuses Miles Davis and Captain Beefheart) I'd certainly like to see it.

Great music, thanks for all of it.

gloveofbones

The TIMJ PLP are debating the possibility of entryism in the compilation of this list. There may be cause for an enquiry particularly in light of Sonic Youth only polling 48 against Nirvana achieving 20 when the latter would not have noodled a note without the former. On balance however there is no debate on the top spot. And, I had no idea you liked lists. XX

Thanks for all your great jams! Great jam to go out on! Excellent top 50 list as well!

@Bukowski thanks for all the great tunes! I too like the majority of your list, very surprised there's only one Captain and no Miles Davis…!!! and I hope to see you again in another musical life

Undoubtedly one of the greatest songs ever.

pippamiddleton

They never made a record that wasn't "the best I ever heard", but of them, this is the best. 1963 was the golden age of top 40 music.

They sure could sing!

Great way to exit - it's all subjective of course, but very hard to argue against Be My Baby for greatest ever pop song, a sheer delight.
