Your top 3 of each album?

im impressed you guys were able to narrow choices down to 3 for each record

Most were very easy. Just do not think too long and don't be afraid to 'throw some of your favourite songs before the bus.

Unlike one might matbe expect, the Reunion Era albums were more difficult for me than the 20th Century albums.

But what wonderful stories  they all are. I think Bruce would make a top notch short story writer. One could have a whole book of of adventures for The New Timer alone.

Mr J has often commented that many of his songs could be made into short films - in black & white, obviously!

Wow, I would have never had guessed that! Now what about Harry's Place! 

I absolutely love that version, especially Tommy's guitar... I prefer the live version from Cape Town, but I will settle for the album track. 

Harry's Place is ok.

Some albums were easier to pick favorites from than others. I also chose to include The Seeger Sessions (even it's my least favourite Bruce album), since two of my three favourites from High Hopes are covers.
