Both my favourite album and song of all time right there.
First album (tape) I ever bought.

Metallica seriously needs to re-record and re-release a lot of their early work. The songs are great but the sound and the mixing leaves a lot to be desired.

Without listing 10 here's a few off the top of my head that have nearly worn out player needles and laser heads.
Angels self titled debut album
Cold chisel's east
Men at work live in brazil
Talking heads once in a lifetime
Queen greatest hits 1 and 2 (so many great albums otherwise)
Oasis whats the story morning glory
Powderfinger odyssey no.5
Matchbox 20 yourself or someone like you

I'd hate to total up the sales on those few alone.

I'm not a rob thomas fanboi but gee he has a knack of dropping a big selling single and the variation from the early matchbox 20 to that sugar song is near unrecognisable

Diesel and Dust and Freight train heart were around the same time , well when I bought them. I had just started casual work and could buy myself tapes. I didn't know much about the bands at the time.

When I listen to them I still think of the hot summer days back then

I never had a choice with the jets sb, hitting legal drinking age in Newcastle at their peak and working with one of their guitarists means I've probably seen them live 2 dozen times hahaha

Much like rra i probably got those major influences of the auusie icon bands from being forced to save up to buy a tape at brashs but getting 1 maybe 2 a year in my teens meant i bought value with best of's more than albums

Gleeso and Izzy doing a live acoustic of roar for triple m is fairly cool for those who like the jets.

Custard - Wahooti Fandango
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

I imposed rules too. Each artist could only feature once, no compilation albums or soundtracks, and no greatest hits albums.
The only rule I went by is an album that I could put in and listen from start to finish and enjoy every song. There were plenty of songs that I could list but there are duds on the albums so they are not my favorite album.
Likewise. If I was to list my top 10 songs (top 50, top 100), very few of them would actually have come from my top 10 albums.

I'ts very much a headphones type album. Very subtle but amazing at the same time. "For Emma, Forever Ago" is great too.

Boredom must have set in - I bought that when it came out. You can get the full ouvre in a 5 cd box cd set. Warrell Dane (ex - Nevermore) does a much better version of Lucretia, with real drums and guitars, on Praises To The War Machine. Unlike Andrew Eldritch he can sing more than two notes too. And actually I prefer the Sisterhood album Gift, which isn't in the box set. Has great drum programming.

I wish that all those old vinyl 12" singles were actually worth something. Maybe the bootlegs are.
