THANK YOU!

My only thought when I read the original list was, "I guess we know who Butch Vig is sleeping with these days..."

And, while I appreciate your humility, I'd put all three of the Droids' albums above most of those on the original list and your list.

Like Dave E. & Walter, the list doesn't bother me all that much once you accept a loose definition of pop. Since the Tar Babies & Appliances S.F.B. made the cut, it seems to have some cred in my mind. I still have this weakness for one of Elizabeth Schaefer's albums...and an old Spooner one from high school/college days...and occasionally pop in some Headpump...but to each their own.

Aw, thanks. "Plenty Of Room Up Front" (actual title) is a collection of all-improv songs recorded at various venues.

Oh god they only thing that could make this thread more coma inducing is everyone on the Isthmus forum having to share with us their enlightening list of cool local releases with bands so obscure even their girlfriends never went to their shows. Designed to show how very hip and in the know you all are about scenes that have been dead for 30 years...........

Go easy, now. He is just bitter he's never ever had a girlfriend, let alone one whom he could tell how awesomely talented he thinks he is.

Or not.

Remove the word pop and I don't have a problem the list in general.


There was a time, not that long ago because time truely does fly by, when Pop was a common abbreviation for Popular Music, and not so narrowly defined as it is now. It referred to the vast variety of styles on AM top-40 radio and FM free-form programming, when Rock, R & B, Motown, Folk, Surf, Blues, crossover Country (Johnny Cash "Ring Of Fire"!), melodic ballads, and even the occasional Jazz instrumental (Brubeck "Take Five"!!) and international crossover (Kyu Sakamoto "Sukiyaki") all found common ground in the Billboard Hot 100.
I think Albertoni made a good effort to encapsulate some of the most successful album releases over the past 50 years in Madison. He reminded everyone that this scene has some notable history. His only mistake was calling them the best, as that is always a subjective thing.
