You nailed it Rick Stark! I'd love to see the cd myself. I guess we could always burn our own copy!

Hey Rick you missed Beware of Darkness, but then again it is hard to choose songs from an album like ATMP

Beware Of Darkness was the last one I cut -- I had too many. What else would you get rid of instead of that one?

ATMP is such an amazing album, I would have sure made Beware Of Darkness fit somewhere.
I needed comfort of love just to get me some piece of mind.. wo-oh

I think this topic just goes to show how under-rated ANd how under-appreciated George has been. Nearly all of the songs mentioned have been awesome.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.

Those are my two favorite songs from 33 1/3, but the four that I put on there were all singles, so I would figure those should be included. If I had my choice though, I would definitely put those two ahead of True Love!
