80!

On this special day, we finally ranked Paul's albums from least to best. We chose 26 albums. We did not include live, classical, or Firemen albums.

We included Choba BCCP, Run Devil Run and Kisses On The Bottom. This was our longest show yet! At 3 hours it's a marathon but we felt on this occasion it was ok to a bit over the top about our favourite guy!

We are blessed he has continued to make new music and thankful f...
