  2. Mr. Completely Says:

    you’d be down with Kiss, albert?

  3. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    I wonder how often the eliminations will progress.

    Love’s Forever Changes would be special as my brather and his wife are inviting a friend that gave me that album after we had a discussion on music at my brother’s wedding. That would be a welcome album and bow to the past that is the historical framework, culturally speaking., even if ever-so-obscure.

    The game begins again. What about fianlizing the short list and driving the selection based upon actual attendee ballot casting? We’ll have until 10AM Friday to submit out ballots. Would be neat?

  4. Chuck D Says:

    now that there is a definative list (we’d like to think), it would be interesting to see how people vote. if you got like 5 positive votes and 5 negative votes, im sure some albums would harness more attention that others in both directions…

  5. whole tour! Says:

    anyone have any extra tickets fro railroad earth in asheville?

  6. JP Says:

    top 5 feels tough with that many amazing options

  7. albert walker Says:

    yeah mr. c I missed a few and kiss would be one of them

  8. Lycanthropist Says:

    Marquee Moon would be a very good fit.. very jammable, unknown enough but acclaimed enough to fit the mold of previous album choices (DSOM excluded.)

    My guesses are:

    Marquee Moon
    Sticky Fingers
    Goodbye Yellowbrick Road
    Led Zeppelin IV

  9. albert walker Says:

    Stones- Sticky
    Clash- London Calling
    Love- Forever Changes
    Neil- Everybody Knows
    Zappa- Hot Rats

    if it is one of these 5 I’d be more than happy
    these would probably be my fav 5

  10. posternutbag Says:

    Physical Graffiti would be pretty awesome if they didn’t mind doing another double album.

  11. Lycanthropist Says:

    i propose everyone spin these albums over the next few days.

    My wife and I are starting with Hello Nasty

  12. halcyon Says:

    I can picture them doing Superfly. Page could rip up Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.

  13. albert walker Says:

    only spinning hello nasty doing at this crib is if it gets tossed out the window

    startin to spin the early Genesis for my girl
    she has not heard it that much and I think it is very probable

  14. GuitarPicker420! Says:

    Huey Lewis got axed

  15. albert walker Says:

    Huey Lewis gone!!!

  16. GuitarPicker420! Says:

    Talking heads, fear of music is out too

  17. albert walker Says:

    Banking that the boys have good taste in music

    I hope they consider the Doors and U2 to be just as big of douches as I do

    there are so many great records up there I fear the 20 that do not interest me at all

    of the remaining 80 I’d be up for anything

  18. Lycanthropist Says:

    damn they killin em fast…

    startin to think if this isnt a hoax and the one they are playing isnt even up there.

  19. gus Says:

    If they did Thriller I think I would be the happiest person alive.

  20. Mr. Completely Says:

    ones I love and think would work:
    Eat a Peach
    Blood on the Tracks
    Either Stones album
    Steely Dan
    Jack Johnson
    Everybody Knows
    Electric Ladyland

    ones I either don’t like or think would really not work so I’d be glad that I’m NOT at indio so I kinda hope they do them (just kidding) – not including things that seem like obvious jokes – and yeah some of these albums I think are OK but just aren’t the right fit
    ZZ Top
    Peter Gabriel
    Rage Against the Machine
    Pearl Jam
    Beach Boys
    Arcade Fire

    probably missed some…I think a lot of this stuff is just not quite there

  21. verno329 Says:

    Free Huey!

  22. sumodie Says:

    I’m guessing phish plays an album with rock n roll juice -nothing too soft/mellow for Saturday night. It’ll be a well known artist/album too -me thinks the boys really want to this to be EPIC on all fronts. Any of the Hendrix, Stones, Zeppelin, Zappa, and Young albums would more than make my night.

    1. Jimi Hendrix – Electric Ladyland (double album) – very meaty & trippy, lots for the whole band to rip into

    2. Rolling Stones – Exile on Main Street -double album, awesome variety of rock n roll tunes (Sticky Fingers is sooo heavy downer drug filled, though it’s also great)

    3. Led Zeppelin – IV (but Zep I is from 1969…)

    4. Neil Young – Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere – 1969 (he’s got the Cali connection, and he’s alive, hint, hint)

    5. Frank Zappa – Apostrophe (but Hot Rats is from 1969) – Wild n wacky Zappa has the Cali connection. Actually, Zappa and Young are tied for #4. Thus:

    6. T.Rex – Electric Warrior -my personal dark horse candidate

    Sunday morning acoustic surprise: Grateful Dead – American Beauty (1970). Neil could also make for a Sunday acoustic surprise.

  23. Mr.Miner Says:

    Walk Away is fixed on JOTD

    also, I hope they pick an album NOT on this list…prob a marketing ploy just like save the date

  24. Mr.Miner Says:

    now they have something to take up people’s attention instead of Fall Tour dates 🙂

  25. whole tour! Says:

    they are cutting it awfully close for fall tour. looking like a winter tour now?
