What's the difference between forgotten and underrated?
The Forgotten album list is one of the most fun lists I’ve compiled. I took road trip after road trip to local gigs, music festivals like The Long Beach Blues Festival in Ca and to countless clubs where I interviewed lots of people. I had a working list of albums but always was adding to it after each stop. Once people started the conversations it was always a case of “yeah, I remember that one but did you ever listen to this one because its great even though most people have forgotten about it”
It wasn’t like the forum where a lot of talk is centered around this album is better than that album so the notion of under-rated records never entered the equation as pertains to this list.
Of course being at all these shows I got to hear a lot of music and just like the forum people love to talk about music so it was easy accumulating many titles and the list could easily have been larger.
