The House is on Fire! - Part 2

Part 2

There was recently a large fire in Griffith Park in Los Angeles. A friend of mine lives near there, and may have had to evacuate. Not a good reason to think about it, but…what if you could only take 100 titles from your ‘about to be consumed by flames’ home? What would they be? I wrote this list fairly quickly. My choices are mostly vinyl.

#26 - #50:

Faust - self-titled 1st LP (German orig clear cover, vinyl) (Polydor DE)

Lucio Battisti - "Il Nostro Caro Angelo" (Numero Uno IT)

Thomas Diethelm / Santino Famulari - "Valleys In My Head" (Mercury Switzerland) (CD has 2 songs from the previous album, which is also excellent!)

Watermelon - "Cool Music" (Alfa JPN)
