    Favorite Rock Albums

    I was careful to word the title with "favorite" instead of "best." So, here is a typical offseason music kind of thread. What are your favorite rock albums of all time? Do a top 5, top 10, top 25, top 100, I don't care...

    Being now an old foggy, I am of course a die hard fan of those traditional super groups of the 60's/70s. It seems I always have a Beatles, Who, Zeppelin, or Pink Floyd CD in my car. Those use to 8-tracks by the way.

    Right now I'm listening to....

    Meet The Beatles (still sounds as fresh today as it did 40+ years ago)
    Who Live At Leeds (wore the grooves off this album back in it's day)
    David Gilmour - About Face
    Allman Brothers Live at Filmore East (ahhh - Memory Of Elizabeth Reed)

    I always get depressed when I read threads like this because it shows my age.

    I don't recognize a lot of the stuff you younger people are listing.


    Now I know this is about personal favorites, but I noticed that there are some very popular albums, from back in the "heyday", that haven't been listed. Where is there any?....

    Emerson, Lake, and Palmer

    Deep Purple




    No Jethro Tull. No Supertramp Crime of the Century or Breakfast In America? No Cars or Cheap Trick either.

    And I can't believe this one hasn't been listed.

    I guess it shows that some bands (albums) endure the test of time, and reach across better to future generations, when others don't.

    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!

    I tried to give this album another "listen to" a couple months ago. I understand that is considered to be a prime example of British psychedelic music and avant-garde free-form, with most of the album's tracks predominantly written by Syd Barrett; but I never got into the Barrett hype. I fully understand that Syd had a lot of problems, so there is that sympathy factor; but his overuse of LSD didn't help matters.

    I guess it's a situation of different strokes for different folks when it comes to the Piper album. I did like "See Emily Play" though.

    By the way... did anyone watch VH1 Classics yesterday? They had an all day marathon on Pink Floyd. Had some really good stuff.
