Tina Dico, The Living Room, NYC, 9/27/05

Tina Dico performed at New York's Living Room on Tuesday night as part of a short U.S. solo tour. Having become known on this side of the Atlantic as a result of joining the British group Zero 7 on their latest album When It Falls (2004), she has so far released a six song EP here, Far (2004).

Here's my top ten. I'll post an update when WXPN plays back their final tabulation of the 885 greatest albums of all time later this month. 1. The Beatles - Rubber Soul (1965) A close call between this and Sgt. Pepper's , in fact I could easily have picked ten Beatles albums to fill this list but that would serve only to avoid the issue, so for the purpose of this list I'm limiting the choice to one album per artist. 2. Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run (1975) A close call between this and The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shu
