DEFINITIVE RECORDS: The 3 Albums That Anchor The Tastes Of Super Vancouverites

Definitive Records is a new Scout column that asks interesting Vancouverites to pick the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. Today, we hear from award-winning Campagnolo chef/restaurateur…

Johnny CashAt Folsom Prison | LISTEN | “When I was about 4 or 5 years old my parents bought a new record player. They also joined the columbia records mail order club and got this one for free. I played this album so much that it went ‘missing’.”

The SmallsThe Smalls | LISTEN | “I have been listening to punk music since I was twelve (The Dead Kennedys, Misfits, Circle Jerks, etc.) and this album takes me back to a time that turned the direction of my life towards the path I have been on for the last 18 years.”

R.L. BurnsideAss Pocket of Whiskey | LISTEN | “A Mississippi hill country blues legend and the foresight of Jon Spencer from the blues explosion came out in the mid nineties and helped solidify my long lasting love for the blues. R.L said on more than one occasion, ‘I didn’t mean to kill nobody … I just meant to shoot the sonofabitch in the head. Him dying was between him and the Lord.’ One bad ass bluesman.”
