Billy Corgan, guitarist and songwriter for the Chicago band whose second album, Siamese Dream, is a current college-radio fixture, has tastes that one would call eclectic: *Blind Willie McTell 1927-33: The Early Years (Yazoo) ”Scary blind-man blues from the ancient past with some whiskey flavor thrown in.”

*Electric Light Orchestra afterglow (Epic Associated) ”Most beautiful sounds from the post-Beatles era.”

*Charlie Parker BeBop & Bird (Rhino) ”Charlie, out of his mind on smack, tootin’ his horn.”
