Did Someone Say "Definitive Dallas"?

So, he'll be on the list, right? Right.

In case you're interested, yesterday's posting concerning the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's "Definitive 200" list -- argh -- has turned into a "Definitive Dallas" discussion. So join us, if you're interested, in determining the most essential albums recorded by local artists. And if you need some refreshing, or if you're just new to these parts, let me refer you back to these posts from last summer, complete with audio files: an early overview of Dallas music, some high notes from the 1940s and 1950s and the groovy sounds of the '60s. We were gonna go into the 1970s and further, but we just couldn't bring ourselves to post any Meat Loaf. But, hey, maybe he's top pick. If so, let us know. Results will appear in the paper version of Unfair Park, if plenty of peeps play. --Robert Wilonsky
