Ain't No More Cane from the Basement Tapes was the first true Band song imo and still one of their best imo, Levon, Rick and Beak all take a verse and meet up on the chorus. Timeless stuff, 4 Canadians and a Cracker reinventing the American songbook.The Band are my favourite band, so I'm gonna agree with you there.
Hourly Daily reminds me of the morning Diana died, I was working in a pub where you could see Windsor Castle from the beer garden and was doing a bit of kitchen prep with that cranked up when my boss came in and told me she was dead. I ended up going through Windsor on a boat later that day and the atmosphere was surreal.You Am I
Sound As Ever,Hifi Way,Hourly Daily.
My favorite 4 cure albums are from 85-92. So for me either head on the door or wish could get in.Heaps of love for The Cure in this corner!
I'd go with Seventeen Seconds, Faith, Pornography - which is a well-loved trilogy of albums (chronologically, unlike the Pornography, Disintegration, Bloodflowers 'mood' trilogy).
Also Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, Disintegration, Wish. I love Wish. It doesn't get mentioned nearly enough. It's great. And the other two albums are clearly awesome as well.
I'd love to link Bloodflowers in there, but the eternal disgrace that is Wild Mood Swings gets in its' way.
Some would include Band Of Gypsys, but its appeal is narrower than the first three.the jimi hendrix experience?
