Got that Seger's record since many years ago, nice psychedelic/blue-eyed soul effort. Not the best in the canon (that award should go to the first Sons of Champlin album or/and Doug Sahm & co's "Honkey Blues" LP.), but still great music.

   superb choices there , Bob Seger and the  Ann Arbor, Michigan  music scene have brought us some great bands/albums , the rationals spring to mind  (bob and iggy have backing credits on some their records)

Good choices, I used to listen to Hüsker Dü a lot in the 80s and own the first Grant Hart solo LP. Of course, the Undertones are a GREAT band and "Arthur", while not "Something Else" or "The Village Green..." is a wonderful record.

The only Husker record I own is "Candy Apple Grey", but I have 2 early Mould solo LP's ... I was more of a "Replacements" fan... Still looking for a good copy of "Village Green..." "Arthur" has it's moments.

I recently got rid of a lot of replacements albums, I guess tastes change...although I've been having a massive clear out and only keeping my favourite records...still have around 500...and now plenty of room to fill.

I also recently purchased village green after seeing a documentary on it a couple of years ago, but have to say now I've played it I don't really like it...strange.
Not stuck in the 60's

In fact the Replacements were one of my favourite 80s bands, own almost everything they recorded in their heyday, including their fab mini-LP "Boink!!". Hüsker Dü I discovered later (precisely through "Candy Apple Grey") and though I love many of their songs, Paul Westerberg and co. are still closer to my heart.
