    I was really curious if you'd post in this thread.

    You probably have 10 alternates all worth a listen.

    I love this thread.

    I had not listened to "Selling England by the Pound" in years.

    "Coming over the hill are the boys of Bill,
    and Johnny's lads stand very still.
    With the thumpire's shout, they all start to clout
    - there's no guns in this gentleman's bout.
    Georgie moves in on the outside left
    with a chain flying round his head;
    and Harold Demure, from Art Literature,
    nips up the nearest tree.
    (Here come the cavalry!)"

    (I have at least 10 alternates just from them :-)

    I bought Nursery Cryme back in 1974 based solely on the album cover. I had no clue whatsoever what kind of music I was getting into. My best friend bought Seconds Out the same day for the same reason.

    Worked out quite well! :thumbsup:

    I have a strong nostalgic connection to early Genesis....my friends and I attended their first US concert (opening act: String Driven Thing) at NYC`s Lincoln Center in December 1972. We were so impressed with the show they put on, Peter Gabriel was like an extraterrestrial on stage....:devilzeek

    For any real music lover, picking a "Best Album" is pretty much of an impossibility....

    Today, I was listening to the Beatles` "Abbey Road", and was totally blown away by the musical genius of that album....McCartney`s incredible bass lines that he got with that little Hofner bass are staggering....:devilwag:

    (Great choices from all respondents :thumbsup:....you guys are inspiring me to listen to stuff that I neglected for a long time....)

    There was SUCH a great wealth of music from around 1965 to 1975, it`s hard to describe the enormity of it....every band had their own "signature sound", making them readibly identifiable as soon as you heard 2 or 3 seconds of a song.

    Here`s a killer album from Traffic:

    Excellent choice....if you`ve never seen the movie version, it`s worth buying the DVD....a very young Sting as The Bellboy is a sight to see....:devilwag:

    Really a tough decision to pick the one album.

    I am a huge Brit Rock fan so all the albums by Floyd, The Who, Beatles, Stones, Genesis, Led Zeppelin, and Jethro Tull; all have a favourite place for me. Same with all the blues and traditional jazz albums.

    So if it were just me picking an album just for me to listen to, it would be U2's Joshua Tree. Great tunes, so well produced and on vinyl it's sublime.

    I can't just choose one album, way to many come to mind, but for the proposes of this thread, Nirvana's Unplugged album really changed the way I listen to music. To me it is one of the most perfect albums ever.

    Just listened to the entire "Quadrophenia" album today, and was reminded of exactly what a great Rock `n Roll album should sound like....

    Simply WAY too hard to choose just one.

    ... Butt after careful consideration and torment, I'm leaning towards:

    Pink Floyd: Live At Pompeii

    It's a DVD, not an "album" per se, but as a music lover and and with thousands of great material to choose from... it's the best I could do. I suppose an unfair question deserves an unfair answer...
