The 3 Albums That Anchor The Tastes Of Super Vancouverites


Definitive Records asks interesting Vancouverites to pick the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. Today, we hear from the owner of Dani Tatarin of The Keefer Bar in Chinatown. She’s a real sweetheart, and one of Vancouver’s most celebrated bartenders.


Wow, it was so hard to choose only three, but looking back, these albums really stand out for me…

Rolling Stones – Hot Rocks | LISTEN | I was 11 and Paint it Black was the first song I listened to when I was given my mom’s old stereo for my room (it had a turntable, cd and tape cassette player on it). I turned it up really, really, really loud, so loud I couldn’t hear my parents, but I don’t think they asked me to turn it down. It made me wish I grew up in the 60’s.

Steve Earle – Copper Head Road | LISTEN | Being from Alberta I learned how to two-step to this in the kitchen when I was a little girl. Although it’s country, its rockin’ country and Steve Earle is badass. And so is two-stepping.

Nirvana – Nevermind | LISTEN | Nevermind was one of my first CD’s. I grew up listening to my parents music, soul, R&B, country and rock, which I love, but Nirvana was, well Nirvana.
