5. Forever Changes
6. Let It Be (Beatles version)
7. The Velvet Underground & Nico
8. Harvest

13. Exile on Main St.

23. Born in the USA (one copy behind Murmur)

27. Kick Out The Jams

A prize for anyone who can predict where in the chart the Neutral Milk Hotel and the Band books will be, by the end of March. (Hint: I don’t have a clue.) Answers to me via email (david at by the end of next week – the 18th.
