Cemetary_walk: I personally would go with Magazine, it's probably my favorite album of theirs. But I also love Vertigo and Between The Dim...; also, I happened to find The Early Years in my local record shop (along with an autographed Live DVD!) and like it too :)
This time of year always makes me miss seeing Jump. It still feels like something's missing during the holidays and it's been 4 years since their last Dock Street (it became a holiday tradition to go to Charleston with my sister).
I wish they would do a reunion show next year after the Dock Street Theater reopens. :)
watsonic. I remember. I got introduced to jump cramped into the backseat of a friend's VW bug trying to make out the lyrics to LTD from her scratchy tape player. I got hooked and showed up to my first Jump concert (Ziggy's in the old W-S!) the next week and showed up way early.
