I am and I know that Radio City is a legendary album but I think I came to them too late for the albums to make the impact of stuff that I heard when I was younger. There are certain songs that I adore though. Similar thing with The Replacements, though Pleased To Meet Me almost made my 1980s list.

I hear you.  I can still fall in love with bands, even retrospectively, with the same amount of obsession and fervour that I had back then, though.

I didn't hear Big Star until the mid 80s.  I didn't have a Fairport album until the 21st Century.  I didn't know Guided by Voices until less than a decade ago.  It's like what you were saying about Stackridge.
