At 18, after watching the movie Ghost World, I decided to start a record collection. I now own hundreds of records and own over 900 cds.

Dana Gillespie Weren't Born a Man
When I first saw this record in a thrift store I didn't know who Dana was but the cover didn't interest me. After listening to Dana's first and second folky pop albums Box of Surprises and Foolish Seasons, I knew I had to listen to her 70's stuff. This is a great bluesy rock album. It starts off with Stardom Road and What memories we make which kind of remind me of her beginning efforts. However the rest is rock. She wrote most of the stuff for this album. Her cover of her friend David Bowie's Andy Warhol is pretty cool.
