‘Once upon a time’ and ‘happily ever after’ are the fairly tale standards, but what about for music? Which albums have the best opening and closing cuts? On today’s show, we talk over 3 albums that start and finish with moments of greatness.

Grateful Dead – American Beauty (Don)
Nina Simone – Pastel Blues (Andy)
Nirvana – Nevermind (Dude)

Don’t forget to vote on our ANHoF nomination of Alicia Key’s album Songs in A Minor. Rock the vote here.

What do you think of these records? What killer opening and closing songs would you pick? Tell us on the Album Nerds Discord, or email us,

Thanks for listening!
