I just love the fact that Kaizers Orchestra's first CD is on that list! Theyre norwegian, but the lyrics aren't all that, so to not understand the language is no disaster. The rhythm, the oomph, the madness and the pump organ combined are excellent!!

I was kind of suprised not to see that Jack Kerouac/Steve Allen album that i've heard Tom talk about in many interviews during his younger years on the list.

Maybe it just don't belong to his favourites anymore? Or did he forget it? What do you think?

Wasn't among the left overs either.
