I had hundreds of albums when I was 10 or 11. No brothers or sisters. I was a completely self taught music fanatic. All my allowance went into records. It's all I ever wanted for gifts. When I was 9, a family friend gave me Paradise Theatre by Styx for my birthday. Way better than a bike. In and around this 9-11 year old period I was even aware of some pretty cool Canadian music. I sense there will be more contemplative moments in the next couple of weeks, but here are some of the CanCon albums I was listening to at that age, between like 1980-1982.
