Davis: I first heard the Bitches Brew LP in Indiana during the mid-seventies. This track still sounds as wild, dense, and futuristic now as it did then, electric pianos not withstanding.
Phair: I first heard the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street album in Montreal during the early seventies. I'd still like some stronger evidence that Phair patterned her album, Exile in Guyville, on that one.
