Most everyone has a favorite album. This is mine. A perfect 100 out of a 100.
Depending on my mood, I could also say the cover is my all-time favorite. It's completely captivating, and appeals to my sense of humor.
LP: 1972 CBS
CD: 1993 Musea
I bought my LP copy in 1999 on ebay from a French dealer, before prices became the equivalent to mortgage payments. If there ever was an album I would run into a towering inferno to save, this would be it. If I was forced to sell my collection, this would be the very last album I'd part with. You'd have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers. As far as the CD, Musea once again blows away any potential competition. They also conclude the Moving (1980) album with the remaining bonus tracks. Both formats are essential purchases. As an aside, I also own the original Moving LP. But I'm a fanatic.
