Which leads to this week's question: What is Pink Floyd's single greatest album? Don't feel confined to the big ones like Wish You Were Here and The Dark Side of the Moon. Early work like Atom Heart Mother and Meddle are great, and the post-Waters albums A Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell do have their nice moments. Vote for whatever album you want, but please only vote once and only for a single album.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
