    Dave Grohl was recently asked which three albums should kids listen to as a musical education, and named Sgt Pepper, AC/DC's Back in Black, and...SNF s/t.

    The Carpenters: Singles 1969-1973. Oh yeah, and I have to add Carol King's "Tapestry". If you had the latter album in the 70's, girls thought you were sensitive. It was an ice breaker!

    Ivan Neville: "If My Ancestors Could See Me Now" (1988)

    His first album is a very California-pop affair, full of Toto/James Taylor session players and even a duet with Bonnie Raitt. Not a hint of the New Orleans R&B and more hard-core funk of his later career.

    I used to own that one and quite liked it. Bought it at the merch. table after seeing him open for (and play with) the Expensive Winos in Oakland long ago. Got stolen from my car a few years later, I might just have to try to pick it up again now that you've reminded me of it.

    Since no one is looking, or can rat me out, one of El Duce's finest... will probably have to go visit the red guy with a pointy stick for all eternity as payment for enjoying this one.

    All I can think of, are the 1st three Starcastle albums.

    Although, many here would not consider them guilty pleasures, I have to admit, despite some great melodies and playing, they come off a bit cheesy.

    But besides that, I don't own any pop from any era, never owned any soundtrack albums, or any other genre that is known for having guilty pleasures.

    Hell, I don't even own any Styx albums anymore.

    Starcastle's debut album - Good album, no real guilt

    Fountains Of Light - Great album, absolutely no guilt

    All albums subsequent to "Fountains", not worth getting so I don't have them, definitely no guilt.

    It's when I compare them to much of the rest of my music collection, that they come off as possible guilty pleasures.

    As I scan my collection, passing by all those avant-prog, Zeuhl, post bop, fusion, free jazz, avantgarde and contemporary classical recordings, and see those Starcastle albums, they just look a little lightweight, and like I previously stated, cheesy.

    When I play them, I certainly enjoy them, but the experience seems to lack a lot of depth when compared to the rest of the music I listen to.
