The Narrow List
With Halloween and Festival 8 just 3 days away, the band has narrowed the list to 17 choices, 8 of which being the names of the 8 camping areas at the festival. While the verdict is still out as to what record will be covered, rumors of a horns section (courtesy of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings) grow more likely with each elimination.
1. Bruce Springsteen | Born To Run
2. David Bowie | Hunky Dory
3. David Bowie | Ziggy Stardust
4. Frank Zappa | Apostrophe
5. Genesis | The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
6. Jimi Hendrix | Electric Ladyland
7. King Crimson | Larks' Tongues In Aspic
8. Led Zeppelin | Zeppelin I
9. MGMT | Oracular Spectacular
10. Michael Jackson | Thriller
11. Pink Floyd | The Wall
12. Prince | Purple Rain
13. Radiohead | Kid A
14. Rolling Stones | Exile on Main Street
