Are You ExperiencedUnited States The Jimi Hendrix Experience
As solid an album as there is not a bad track on the record. I can't say which are the best as every track is a winner. My vote is for the vastly superior, in my opinion, American version of this brilliant album.

The WallUnited Kingdom Pink Floyd
One of the most thought out records In history with led to a tremendous film being made based on the record. It plays like a film so it was not really much of a stretch.

Anthem Of The SunUnited States Grateful Dead
Jerry Garcia stated many years ago that they mixed this album to go along with an acid trip. A tremendous mind blowing mixture of live and studio playing creates a unique marvelous record that truly does make you get to those special places great music can take you.

Abbey RoadUnited Kingdom The Beatles
The Paul Is Dead cover steals some of the thunder from the amazing music contained within. I even adore the sometimes hated Maxwell's Silver Hammer in fact i actually adore that song.

Love the long sprawling Ramble Tamble, a great swampy hoe-down. Fogerty is a great lyricist and the band can really play.

StarsailorUnited States Tim Buckley
What a voice. The vocal range and sounds have to be heard to be believed. A stunning hypnotic album unlike anything else i have ever heard. DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE PEDESTRIAN COVER. This is NOT normal music. A visionary artist and a truly unique amazing work of art.

Super SessionUnited States Mike Bloomfield / Al Kooper / Steve Stills
Fantastic record that i only heard for the first time a few years ago. Quickly became one of my favorites. Fantastic musicianship on the record. If you like excellent playing and have not heard this record i suggest you go give it a spin, immediately. Their only record together but it is a masterpiece.

The Baby Huey Story: The Living LegendUnited States Baby Huey
Quickly becoming a favorite what an album, so glad i grabbed a copy at record store day. i recommend for all fans of funk, soul, r and b, hip hop or rock give this a listen. It is a great record. Died tragically young at only 26 but at least we have these recordings to remember this giant of a man both literally and figuratively. What an amazing record.

Such a beautiful and diverse masterpiece. Heart touching songs among funked out jammers. A classic double album and one of the greatest records of all-time. A truly classic work of art.

Not much in common (only 8 albums & 8 artists) but phenomenal choices in rock, hip-hop, funk, soul, prog, jazz, etc. Super rich and inclusive. Great notes too. Loved seeing Cat Stevens at #12, he was one of my first loves and that album was among the first few I owned. I saved some of your rap selections to listen to later. None of your choices seemed cliche (Even Beatles at #1), I'm glad you chose this method of entry. Saving this chart to my favorites.

I liked reading your notes. They are really sensible. And I liked what you wrote about trying to make an honest chart about what are REALLY your favorite albums, rather than what you think SHOULD be your favorite albums. But even that isn't as easy as it sounds, as I've discovered.
