    My personal favorites today are much different then they were 42 years ago. As with almost all of the VH albums, the deeper cuts tend to be my favorites now.

    On VHND, the 11 songs appear in random order. You simply drag & drop them into your favorite order, from favorite (at the top) to least favorite (bottom). But if you're on a phone, you can't drag & drop, so you just change the number in front of the song, to be from 1 to 11.

    It's fun! Voting is today only, 'til midnight. The results will be posted tomorrow. I think this might be the biggest fan poll ever, as far as fans ranking the songs on the debut album.

    Nice to see Little Dreamer get more love!
    These lists and polls are kinda gay (if you like it you like it, if you don't you don't, if you prefer....), yet I'd rather, and do, listen to LD more than Jamie's Cryin' or Runnin' with the Devil. Probably AP or OF, too.
