Albums you would never admit to owning, except here, on TB

    Rummaging through old vinyl and CD's that got shoved into dark corners of the house and I found stuff that I completely forgot I owned ( and probably for good reason). I had to laugh at some of them--here are a few of my gems. Let's see your "skeletons in the closet"

  2. I remember that David Rose album! The Stripper became a big hit in the early 60's, when instrumentals were very popular. We've all heard it; it's probably one of the most widely recognized instrumentals even today.

  3. I have a signed copy of Mrs Miller's Greatest Hits.

    But you have to admit--she had a fantastic voice.

    Absolutely. But as Richard has said several times over the years since her passing, she always considered herself to be a drummer who happened to sing.

    Plus, you get Joe Osborn's bass playing.

    I had The Carpenters' eponymous third studio album Carpenters (album) - Wikipedia on vinyl when I was 10 or 11 years old. I think my parents gave it to me.
    At the time I was mostly into far more aggressive sounding rock and funk, so it didn't get an awful lot of turntable time ...but when I did listen to it I had to admit, the vocals -- not just Karen's leads, but also (and especially) those thick lush backgrounds -- were just incredible.

    I don't own it anymore, and I don't think there's anything in my current CD collection that even remotely qualifies as Never-Admit-To-Owning material.

  12. None. I'm totally shameless about my listening habits.

    On that note, if your Jingle Cats and/or David Rose LPs need a new home, send 'em my way!
  13. Lemmy was a huge ABBA fan. He thought their songwriting was brilliant.

    Not mine, but the wife's... Not sure if she bought it or inherited it from her parents, but it's in our "collection" none the less!

    This was my dad's album; but, ended up in my collection. I used to listen to it when I was a kid.

    It's an '80s R&B/Rock/Pop classic.
    I'm reading Steve Lukather's book...right now, I'm in the time frame where he's talking about Thriller. Good stuff.
