Or... get California on its own, if you can find it. Easier to find and also worthwhile are Mercury (in cut-out bins everywhere for some insane reason) and Everclear.

RE: amc/eitzel | from not markJan 01 2003 - 17:16

The United Kingdom / California CD. The songs "Blue and Grey Shirt" and "Last Harbor" make it essential. To this day they remain two of the best songs Eitzel has ever written.

california/caught in a trap

blue grey shirt/helium

AMC's masterpiece is "Everclear" for me. It's definitely the saddest, most reverb-drenched AMC album. I love Bruce Kaphan's production. My favorite Eitzel solo album is "The Invisible Man." But 60-Watt Silver Lining is up there, too.

RE: amc/eitzel | from J. William HallDec 17 2002 - 07:53

My AMC top 5, all superb:

1. Engine
2. Everclear
3. United Kingdom
4. California
5. Mercury

Not as up on the Eitzel solo stuff, although there's a great single he put out around 1990 on Matador, which contains an early version of "Take Courage" and another lovely tune with a ridiculously long title that I like a lot. Haven't seen it on CD anywheres....

RE: amc/eitzel | from lucaDec 17 2002 - 01:29

'the revolving door' and 'ex-girlfriend' are the the most beautiful songs

RE: amc/eitzel | from canuckDec 16 2002 - 10:48

AMC: San Francisco

solo: 60 Watt Silver Lining

(Invisible Man and his covers record, Music for Courage & Confidence are also very rewarding)

Fans should'nt go without any of the AMC or solo releases.

RE: amc/eitzel | from ckDec 16 2002 - 09:49

Everclear is my favorite, but Engine has a few of my favorite AMC songs. Invisible Man and Songs of Love... are both great.

RE: amc/eitzel | from Seth HowardDec 15 2002 - 12:15

I love "Caught in a Trap..."

RE: amc/eitzel | from christianDec 15 2002 - 08:33

i think "invisible man" is mark's apex, and "everclear" is my favorite AMC album. i also love "the restless stranger" - i don't know why mark/AMC have such a low opinion of it.

RE: amc/eitzel | from RDec 15 2002 - 02:18

i personally love Songs of Love Live. all of marks solo stuff is really good though. but definitly mercury from AMC

RE: amc/eitzel | from Rob SDec 14 2002 - 22:07

I like "Mercury" and I think that "Invisible Man" is his best solo record. Many will disagree with me, I'm sure.
