My Project . . .

I'm going to try and write a short piece about each of my favorite all-time LPs over the coming year. Here's the list of what to expect, in rough order of love. . . .

I hope to include (if my memory cooperates) when and where I first heard each album; how my opinion may (or may not!) have changed over the years; its personal meaning to me; and other other mutterings in my mind.
