Part 1 of my conversation with guest Phil Stacey about the music of 1995.
- First show in quite a while
- In '95, Phil turned 26, Jay turned 28
- We both saw a lot of concerts that year
- Big deaths: Jerry Garcia, Eazy E, Shannon Hoon
- Musings on Cleveland, where the Rock Hall of Fame opened in '95
- Jay saw a doubleheader of a Bruins game and a Chris Whitley show
- Singles charts were leaning toward pop and lighter fare
- Is band loyalty still a thing?
- It's okay to not listen to every album in a band's catalog
- Phil's non-top 5 albums: Belly, Garbage, Alice in Chains, Mad Season, Phish, Elliott Smith, Radiohead, RHCP, Sonic Youth, Matthew Sweet, Pavement, Ben Folds Five, Morphine, No Doubt, Throwing Muses, Green Day, Natalie Merchant, Son Volt, Smashing Pumpkins
- It's a rare double album that can't be cut down to a single album
- To be continued
