Thank you! Otherwise I couldn’t have voted at all. I chose six songs: Darkness, Refugees, After the Flood, House With No Door, Lost and Pioneers.

Voted for Darkness. Not that it matters, but The Least was recorded in '69 (although it was released in '70).

Also, I hate "White Hammer" with a white-hot intensity. "Whatever Would Robert Have Said" seems pretty bad to me too.

There are many I like there, but the one I like most is Darkness. Really awsome and emotional song.

For this poll it's easier to list what songs I didn't vote for:  Out of My Book & Killer
I absolutely love Out of My Book - my 3rd favorite on the album, right behind Darkness and Refugees.

I like "Out of My Book" and "Killers" a lot but I couldn't vote for everything LOL

Top 3 would be White Hammer, followed by Darkness (11/11) and Pioneers Over C.

I always make sure to write:  "This is a multiple vote poll so choose all your favorites" or something so people don't just vote for #1  Wink
