I was talking with an old friend last week and we were discussing the advance from albums to 8-tracks,cassettes and into CD's and the discussion turned into albums we had bought on all (or most) of the mediums. We decided that these were albums that we just could not live without and would upgrade to the next level as well. Mine were (in no particular order):

 

Physical Graffiti...Led Zeppelin

Quadrophenia.....The Who

On Time...Grand Funk Railroad

Tres Hombres...ZZ Top

Moonflower...Santana

Layla...Derek and the Dominoes

Eat a Peach...Allman Brothers

Axis Bold as Love...Jimi Hendrix

Abbey Road...The Beatles

Paranoid...Black Sabbath

 

I would be interested to hear yours.

I've got to preface with a couple of things:

  1. My selection of "can't life without" albums is a COMPLETELY random mix. So goes my taste in music. Well, actually, I guess my musical taste isn't random...it's just good :D
  2. There are a couple of "best of" albums on here...but both of them were compilations of singles that were released in the pre-album era.

In No Particular Order:

Bob Dylan - A Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

Whiskeytown – Strangers Almanac

Ryan Adams – Heartbreaker

John Lee Hooker – The Best Of John Lee Hooker

Muddy Waters - Electric Mud

Bruce Springsteen – Nebraska

Bon Iver – For Emma, Forever Ago

Sam Cooke - The Best Of Sam Cooke

Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot

Otis Redding – Pain In My Heart

Flaming Lips – Soft Bulletin

Rolling Stones – Sticky Fingers

Neil Young – Live Rust

 

(Sorry...I just couldn't make it down to ten.)

The Stones Sticky Fingers may be the most underrated album ever. Exile On Main Street Rocks too..........

 

CWB I am always impressed with your musical tastes...a little off center, but never out of bounds!

I think I can do this. Earlier list requests of "Name your one ..." or "Name your five desert albums" were avoided by me, simply because I can't narrow it down.

 

 

I think I can come up with a top 25 for this ... :D

 

:clap: Looking at some of these lists here,I see several I could have easily included in a top 25 as well. The Stones' 'Exile on Main Street' and 'Sticky Fingers' being two of them.
