    Sandy Denny, The Lady. The only woman to have recorded with Led Zeppelin. Robert Plant said she was the greatest British singer he had ever heard. Her version of "The Ballad of Easy Rider" is in my opinion the best ever. Tragically, she died at 31, two days after falling down a flight of stairs in 1978. Joplin, Hendrix, and Morrison had little effect on me, but this one hurt.

    Sad to say, I know the name but nothing else. I will definitely look for her on vinyl next time I'm at the antique store where I buy records. That's some company you put her with. Looking forward to it! Thanks

    I'll be listening to Bruce Springsteen all day today. I'm flying down to San Jose to see him perform tonight at the HP Pavillion Center. I've always been a huge Bruce fan. Not sure how many people around here are fans? As of right now I'm listening to Nebraska.

    I've also been listening to a ton of the Black Keys of late. El Camino is a solid album.

    Nebraska is dark. It's also awesome. Seeing Springsteen live is on the bucket list.

    Nice Badwhale! It's absolutely one of my favorite albums of all time. It just paints the perfect picture of the heartland.

    Actually, it's "Early North Jersey industrial skyline..."

    Springsteen, as far as I interpret it, is talking more about the rust belt than the tornado alley. Maybe just more a voice of the blue collar guy.

    Wow, you have a pretty shitty view of the heartland. Mass murderers, dirty cops, and a generally bleak outlook make that one heavy album.

    I think the only thing that points to the "heartland" is the name of the album.

    I certainly never imagined the heartland as an inviting place. In my mind, and I might say bruce's too, it's a dark place where dreams are crushed and the working class is struggling just to get by. I probably could have chose my words better, or at least elaborated what I meant. I think the great thing about all of Bruce's albums, is the universal subject matter.

    Plus, my idea of the heartlands has been forever tainted by movies such as "Badlands" and the "Indian Runner."

    I absolutely agree. 100%.

    Funny you mention the Indian Runner. It's based on the song, "Highway Patrolman" from the Nebraska album.

    Bummer you think so poorly of the heartland. I'm sure many in the "heartland" think the west coast is a good place to go for your dreams to be crushed and the working class have to struggle to get by.

    There it is. Location is irrelevant. Theme is everything, and it's universal.
