Andrew Jacobs here,

Here’s a few more albums that aren’t among my favorite albums of all time but I did discover them via this issue of Rolling Stone and some brief thoughts on each.

Neil Young and Crazy Horse – Rust Never Sleeps: This live album turned me on to what I personally consider to be the far superior (not to mention far lengthier) Live Rust double album.

Neil Young – After The Gold Rush: To paraphrase Lynyrd Skynyrd (whose hit song “Sweet Home Alabama” contains a pretty brazen retort to Young’s song “Southern Man” from this album), Southern man may not need him around anyhow but this Southern California man certainly does.

The Who – Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy: Although I was a fan of The Who a good year or two before that Rolling Stone issue came out, it took this Who album’s appearance in there to get me to go out and purchase it.

Graham Parker – Howlin’ Wind: I wanted to get Parker’s Squeezing Out Sparks (also in that Rolling Stone issue) but I couldn’t find it, so I settled for Howlin’ Wind instead.  Pretty good album.

The Ramones – s/t: Like The Who, I was familiar with The Ramones before that Rolling Stone issue came it but I didn’t buy the album until I read about it in that issue.

Bob Dylan – John Wesley Harding: If I remember correctly, my desire to hear the original version of “All Along The Watchtower” was the other big reason why I decided to purchase this album.  Needless to say, I’d take Jimi Hendrix’s cover any day of the week over the original.

The Modern Lovers – s/t: I think I listened to this album once.  It didn’t do very much for me.
