“This was way harder than I thought…too many good records that inspired different times. Alas, here we go.”

Neil Young – Harvest Moon LISTEN | “This was our dinner time album growing up. Everyone has an album like that. There’s just something comforting about a good nostalgic album.”

Wolf Parade – Apologies to the Queen Mary | LISTEN | “My favourite contemporary Canadian band and probably my favourite album during university. It’s too bad they broke up. Everything they did was brilliant.”

Paul McCartney & Linda McCartney – Ram | LISTEN | “There are a few Beatles albums (and subsequent solo albums) that could be here. If Tom Waits was a Beatle he would have made an album like this. ‘Monkberry Moon Delight’ and ‘Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey’ are two songs I never get tired of listening to.”

We've done dozens of these interviews over the years but I think this is the first time we've ever asked a record store owner for their selections. The results, unsurprisingly, are pretty awesome.
