    ...I still listen to with any regularity.

    But I did like all of these at one time.

      are the ones least like anything played on the radio. So if you're in its particular mood, you kind of have to play that unique album to scratch it.

        I kind of switched from rock to avant jazz over the years, so a lot of the straight-ahead rock ones just don't get pulled out unless I'm drunk.

        (Forgot to mention Bitches Brew, too, which I also still listen to.)

          I wouldn't say I get it. I'm likelier to play on of the two LPs right before it, where Miles was edging towards jazz-rock fusion, but hadn't put the peddle to the metal yet.
