Albums my friend Toni grabbed despite me whimpering that I would appreciate them more: David Johansen's Here Comes The Night and Rod Stewart's Footloose And Fancy Free. Another pal refused to let me pay him twice the price - that's FOUR smackers - for his copy of the Cruising soundtrack.

Albums I own but bought anyway since they're awesome and I knew I'd feel like giving them to somebody: Polyrock's Polyrock and Neil Young & Crazy Horse's Re*Ac*Tor. I gave them to Toni after her car broke down. When someone's in that situation, the least you can do is give them an album where the band repeats one riff for eleven minutes while Neil yells "got mash potatoes, ain't got no t-bone" over and over.

Oh, and while I didn't buy it and its absurdity is relatively well known, this remains my favorite album cover of all time.

There's a Three's Company episode where Jack's all excited to give the blonde girl a copy.
