This is starting to look like the cup.

BTW, Hepcat, have you ever found a vinyl HH best of that includes No Milk Today? I frequently check, but that's the one that's always missing.

You need to submit your own list in order to earn the right to criticize other ones.

I don't think Brian was criticizing as much as trying to figure out how to chose 20 tunes.... that man has a HUGELY broad spectrum of music.

Then again I could be wrong....

Okay, in which case I apologize. I worked on my own list for a week. And I know for a fact that Hepcat just recycled one of the old lists he already had in his pocket.
