Play an album that makes you nostalgic for your high school days.

New Order "Brotherhood" (1986 Factory, Canadian Polygram pressing)
This was already spinning on the table when I came to post and saw @Kris already picked a New Order album. This one is different so I'll stick with it. Bizarre Love Triangle, in particular, is the track that takes me back high school.

"The Fields of November"
Play a bluegrass or country album.


The country album I usually only spin for this theme...

FEAR's Lee Ving recorded this album in 1985 and it was never released....until 2017.

Play an album to soundtrack a multi-generational dinner party.

Badbadnotgood "LateNightTales" (2017 LateNightTales)
There’s a little bit to please all generations on here, from the Beach Boys and Esther Phillips to Charlotte Day Wilson and Thundercat.

Stevie Ray Vaughan - Soul to Soul

For me, the soundtrack to my high school years in the 80s featured a lot of 60s and 70 music. And SO much Zeppelin and Sabbath. But then this album came out, and when I heard Come On (Part III) on the radio I was immediately a fan. I was lucky enough to catch this tour as well.

I played a couple records out of this set while I cooked and graded papers this afternoon. It's one of the best pick ups I snagged this year.

Atlantic Rhythm and Blues 1947-1974

I'm imagining a dinner party that my grandparents were still around and we could all gather; aunts, uncles, cousins, parents and grandparents. We would eat and drink and enjoy six sides of Ella singing Cole.

Play an album you have because it was a "good deal" or FOMO and not because you really wanted it.

The Glands "Double Coda" (2018 New West Records, from I Can See My House From Here box set)
Not one album, but a whole box set. This wasn't on my radar at all but it came back into stock at New West Records at a sale price. Some great reviews on here from posters who's taste I trust (namely @TenderLovingKiller® - cheers man), vague recollections of hearing a few songs a while back, some quick streams on Spotify and it did the trick. No regrets as this is a fun unique set of well written music. Playing the record released along with this set.

The Doors - Morrison Hotel Sessions RSD 2021

This was a FOMO thing. I love The Doors, but this was an unnecessary to purchase for me. Maybe if the original album was part of it, it would get spun more. But this is mostly a shelf-space-taker-upper.
