Re: Favorite Rock Albums
I still have an original "Frampton Comes Alive" record (vinyl for the younger folks) which I never opened. I don't really know why I never opened and played it.....
I changed over to classical many years ago; but have to have classic rock on my MP3 when I run. My favorite five:
1. Abbey Road by the Beatles. This was not my "breakout" Beatles album (that was the Hey Jude album).....But I felt it raised rock and roll up to a different level at the time.
2. The Wall by Pink Floyd. I used this to indoctrinate my oldest daughter. She's 31 now and her tastes are much different, except for the music on that album. I never get too old for this.....She never forgets how we listened to this when she was about five.
3. Tommy by the Who.
4. Greatest Hits by the Moody Blues. The original two record/tape/cassette/CD version. The Air Force sent me to Oklahoma in 1973 (I've been here ever since); and for many years that was my traveling music coming back to Cincinnati to see my family.
5. The White Album by the Beatles.
There can't be a complete list for me, however, without mentioning two other albums. Led Zepplin with "Stairway to Heaven" and perhaps the greatest true rock song ever written, "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" by Iron Butterfly. Just the mentioned songs are enough to put these albums in my top ten.
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
