I didn't really know how to define best so i am going with the 100 that bring me the most pleasure and or make me think in a productive way.

The Beatles (The White Album)United Kingdom The Beatles
As amazing as any album in history. It took me about 40 years but I finally began to enjoy Revolution 9 and now actually love it along with the rest of the album. The Beatles may have been falling apart at the time but it made for a tremendous artistic achievement.

Sunshine Daydream (Veneta, Oregon 8/27/72)United States Grateful Dead
The greatest concert from the greatest live act of all-time, released in stunning HDCD quality, This is transcendent music. The Playing in The Band and Dark Star are especially Mind blowing as is the China Cat Sunflower-> I know You Rider pairing. A benefit Concert for The Creamery. There is plenty of video on youtube from the show, and there was a dvd released with the cd, well worth watching for any Classic Rock fan. The El paso and Sing Me back Home covers are phenomenal.

Trout Mask ReplicaUnited States Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band
The most creative Record every recorded. Pure genius that took me several listens to get. A complex and demanding double album that is best when consumed as one session. Legendary for a reason this is the only album ever to sound like this. Even other Beefheart is out there but not to this level. Mind Blowing Stuff here.

Not always sure what he is signing about but it is fascinating and the playing is transcendent and gorgeous.

The Velvet UndergroundUnited States The Velvet Underground
Always been my favorite velvet underground album, well at least since the first time i heard it. Candy Says What Goes On are the strongest tracks in a collection of continually great songs. Not the sonic assault of the previous two albums which are also fantastic.

Maggot BrainUnited States Funkadelic
Best opening track in LP history. Eddie Hazel is genius. Best album in the impressive P-Funk cannon.

Hot RatsUnited States Frank Zappa
Zappa at his guitar god best. Shreds the ax all over this album, Contains my favorite Zappa Song with lyrics by Captain Beefheart Willie the Pimp. A hot guitar fest such a treat much of the album is just jamming which is right down my alley.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club BandUnited Kingdom The Beatles
Psychedelic genius amazing concept with quite possibly my favorite cover art of all time. Truly iconic record that really made me see music as art and made me want to start making lists like this of my favorite or "Best" records. A day in the Life is among the finest pop songs ever recorded.

Small Talk At 125th And LenoxUnited States Gil Scott-Heron
I do not agree with everything said on this album but there is no denying it is a powerful example of a particular movement at a particular moment in time. It is raw and hits hard it is unapologetic and completely not politically correct but this album is essential and should be played in history courses studying the late 60's early 70's. POWERFUL.

Music To EatUnited States Hampton Grease Band
Wow! Wow Wow. This record is wild. Original creative one of the most original records on this list. I can not get enough of this album. Has a similar aesthetic to Zappa or Beefheart. Was rumored to be one of the worst selling rock n roll albus of all-time. That tells you how out there it is but it s fantastic especially for fans of bizarre boundary pushing music.
