I really identify with the first part of Almost Famous. When I was 13 or so my sister ran away from home and left me her album collection. This was also in the mid-1970's. When he's in his bedroom listening to those records for the first time, that's me. I'm pretty sure if it wasn't for that I would...

That is one beautiful album. I came close to putting it on my list in the other thread of top albums in constant rotation.

I'll add:

Nick Drake, Pink Moon
Bob Marley, Kaya
Sigur Ros, ( )
Van Morrison, Enlightenment (for that matter, ANY Van album)

Bruce Springsteen "The River" (one of my favorite Springsteen songs) The Pogues "If I Should Fall From Grace With God" I really like it when bands name albums after a lyric in a song. Like "Girlfriend is Better" from the Talking Heads' Stop Making Sense or "Warakurna" from Midnight Oil's Diesel and ...
