You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Mott The Hoople, Mott. Heard it on WIOQ radio. Ed Shockey was the DJ. I love this album, I listened to it on an 8-Track player while I read "The Dirty Dozen". The two are forever connected for me. I even remember the fades in the middle of a song and the clicking sound as it went to the next track and then faded back in.
