A guide by Austin Dalyai (Utah)

Products sampled from this guide:
"This is simply a collection of music that my Dad and I would listen to when I was a kid. It was mostly played on road trips, and fishing trips, and camping trips and things like that. It will always hold a special place in my heart and mind because my dad is deffinetly one of my best friends in the whole world!"

My Home's in Alabama Alabama
A country/rock classic. The first from a group who would sell many millions.

Centerfield [Remastered] John Fogerty
By far, the best solo album from the heart and soul of CCR.

The Way It Is Bruce Hornsby and the Range
The first album from Bruce and his band. This one rocks a lot harder than any future release of his.

High Country Snows Dan Fogelberg
Dan's only attempt at Bluegrass... Amazing. Featuring some classic country pickers including Vince Gill.

Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 The Eagles
Simply put: One of the best selling records ever for good reason!

Roll on Alabama
Another great release from this awsome country band. Finally a little "fiddle in the band," as Jeff Cook (Lead Guitar) Plays fiddle on more than one track.

Climbing Mountain
I cant believe my dad liked this. This is a true classic hard rock album!

Running on Empty Jackson Browne
This is a classic album thats right up there with The Eagles' Greatest Hits. Recorded on the road in between concerts, and during them in some occasions.

Hotel California The Eagles
One of the best records ever. Joe Walsh is in the band now. Joe and Don on lead guitars is priceless.

Bad Company Bad Company
First record from the blues/rock pioneers. Every song on here is worthy of being a single.

Daylight Again Crosby, Stills, and Nash
This is probably my favorite of all these albums. This has a perfect mix of every type of music CSN plays. Hard Rock, Country, soft ballads, great vocal harmonies, and the song "Delta" that David bought late to the recording sessions is one of the best songs they've ever done.

Time Exposure Little River Band
I mostly got to hear the first side of this cassette while with my dad. For some reason, I never heard the other side. I guess he liked side 1 better, and would take it out and put something else in when it was over.

Bustin' Out Pure Prairie League
I'll never forget hearing "Amie" on the radio in our old Nomad caming trailer. It seemed to be, for a while anyway, the most popular song on classic rock radio.

America's Greatest Hits: History America
One of my dad's favorite songs while I was growing up was "Sisiter Golden Hair."

Brothers in Arms Dire Straits
Another one of those "first side only tapes." But an awesome first side it is! I cant tell you how many times we listenend to this, but it's still great today.

Dire Straits Dire Straits
This is one of the few we listened to at home morer than on the road. I have memories of our old living room, and that sweet silver Toshiba stereo with the big speakers. Surrounging it, was my dad's collection of records, as well as the beta VCR, and a host of great films recorded onto blank tapes from TV.

Hell Freezes Over Eagles
We had some of those "father-son" talks while listening to this. It is my soundtrack to coming-of-age.

Time Fleetwood Mac
We went to see these guys together on this tour. Great show, even from up on the side of the mountain!

Far From Home Traffic
We went and saw Traffic when they got back together and toured to support this album. Steve Winwood opend the show doing a solo set as well.

Hourglass America
Another concert I'll never forget. Although America was only the openeing band for this show, they were the ones who performed the best. My dad introduced me to some really great music in the early 90's, as well as the early 80's.

Crosby Stills & Nash Crosby, Stills, and Nash
We went and saw these guys twice together. The first time, David Crosby was in the hospital, so we got to see Steve Still and Graham Nash put on a great show with their band. The next time was pure classic. 3 of my favorite singer/songwriters.

Wide River Steve Miller Band
The first concert we ever saw together. What a great way to start my concert going career. Still, to this day, it's one of my favorite things to do.

Twenty 1 Chicago
We were going to see the tour for this album, but my dad couldn't go, so he gave the tickets to me and a friend. He turned me into a Chicago fan, and he wasn't even there.

John Barleycorn Must Die (Remastered) Traffic
Before the Traffic concert, I had only heard any of their songs as background music. Never paying attention. Then, when they started playing songs from this album, they straucka nerve. It was like they all matched up with great times I had growing up, but I couldn't place any of them exactly.

Rides Again James Gang
Joe Walsh pre-Eagles. This one my dad had on vinyl. And I found it myself, before we listened to it together. I loved it so much, that I insisted we listen to it together. Seemed like it held some memories for him, from maybe 20 years prior. At any rate, it was fun listening to some good hard rock with him.




I know there is a lot more music we listened to together, but these are the timeless ones. They are the ones that stick out in my mind. And they are the ones that I had to go out and get on CD when I first got a CD player.
