    Glad to see you had Dwight and Lyle on your list and of course one of my Mt. Rushmore of Artists- Steve!!!

  2. Nice list. Americana wasn’t much on my radar screen back then, though I’ve come to appreciate it in the meantime. Following are my top 10 picks in no particular order since I’m just not good at ranking stuff! πŸ™‚
    β€’ Bangles – Different Light
    β€’ Jackson Browne – Lives in the Balance
    β€’ Bruce Hornsby & The Range – The Way It Is
    β€’ Joe Cocker – Cocker
    β€’ Peter Gabriel – So
    β€’ Crowded House – Crowded House
    β€’ Bon Jovi – Slippery When Wet
    β€’ Paul Simon – Graceland
