My Favourite 15 Albums (Back in 1994)

cdBack in 1994, I purchased my music collection on CDs. When I needed to make a mix for portable listening, I dubbed my selections onto a cassette tape and listened to it on my Sony Walkman. In 1994, I didn't go anywhere without my Sony Walkman and a good mix tape.

Back in 1994, here were 15 albums I couldn't get enough of. There was likely a point in 1994 where, if asked, I would have slapped together a list of my 15 favourite albums that would have looked something like this...

Nirvana - Nevermind

I've got a little server issue I have to take care of, but tee ball beckons!

If you leave a comment, it might time out on ya... the comment will probably publish anyway, but you'll likely press F5 and publish it twice. Don't worry, I'll fix everything as soon as I can.

P.S. Hayden's Everything I Long For could have made this list. So could have Sloan's Smeared.

James Edgar

All those would have been on my list in 1994 as well. Most are still on my MP3 player.
