    I really despise AFL these days but the glory days were something different.
    I've got the 1973 and 74 Weg GF posters signed by Tom Hafey, Royce Hart (and not at the same time) Kevin Bartlett.
    My grand father went ever further back, he was friends with Captain Blood

    My old man has canned his membership and doesn’t go to matches anymore because he’s so disgusted with the state of the game.

    My grand father never did and that's where a lot of my Richmond memorabilia comes from but I canned mine in the 90's and my dad canned his around a similar time.

    I'll be participating in this. Certainly needs more entries and I haven't done one of these in a little while.

    A good fucking year (especially for prog).

    1. Pink Floyd--Meddle (my favorite Floyd album, and one of my favorite of all time)
    2. Jethro Tull--Aqualung
    3. Genesis--Nursery Cryme (an underrated gem of English pastoral folk prog)
    4. Led Zeppelin--IV
    5. Comus--First Utterance
    6. Leonard Cohen--Songs of Love and Hate
    7. Uriah Heep--Look at Yourself (mainly for "July Morning," but still killer album--arguably metal, but I think they're enough on the boundary)
    8. Yes--Fragile
    9. King Crimson--Islands

    alphabetical order:
    leonard cohen - songs of love and hate
    john coltrane - sun ship
    comus - first utterance
    flower travellin' band - satori
    hampton grease band - music to eat
    bert jansch - rosemary lane
    mountain - nantucket sleighride
    catherine rebeiro - ame debout
    spirogyra - st. radigunds
    uriah heep - salisbury

    man, i assumed i liked satori less than most people here, but i don't think it's received a single vote so far so i'm giving it some love. for an album that's pretty much a staple of the heavy music canon these days, it's nuts that it apparently hasn't received a single mention on GMD in over three years aside from making hbb's honourable mentions. stop being racist against the slants, they aren't all degenerate perverts like arg.
