Heres another musical question...what is your best 3 opening album tracks? Mine is the first 3 on The Who's Quadrophenia....a sweeping majestic cacophony of greatness (always wanted to say that) :becool:
Looking forward to hearing some interesting selections..don't let me down chaps and lassies

Don't know about best 3 (that is too complicated) but Appetite for Destruction by GnR starts with an awesome opening track, which has an awesome intro....

Welcome to the Jungle.

Oh, and what about Nick Lowe - Cruel to be Kind from Labour of Lust?
(He's even got Dave Edmunds in the backing group......that'll keep TBM happy)
And me!
Well, they were in Rockpile together

SWMBO likes this Nick Lowe track...............don't know why:scratch:

Psycho-country music leg-end Johnny Paycheck from the best country LP in the whole wide world. Now although this, the first track, is a great song with super loony steel playing by Lloyd Green it isn't even the best song on the album. Great wrapper too eh!


This is the best track...


This one's good too.


Awesome stuff folks and remember it's only 1966, wtf were they thinking of!?
