Overall chart ranking: #1. Decade ranking: #1. Produced by George Martin. The last album The Beatles recorded somehow turned out to be one of their very best. The bits and pieces McCartney envisioned as song suites somehow worked, and Lennon's singular songs are among his best work. George Harrison's songs show how much he'd progressed into a rival of the band's songwriting team. Abbey Road is a miracle of 1969 modern technology: it sounds as clean as anything coming out today. One of the most entertaining albums ever made.[First added to this chart: 04/11/2012]
Produced by John Simon. The second album from The Band is a thing of beauty. The songwriting would begin to fall off shortly after this, but for two albums (this and Music From Big Pink), The Band could do no wrong. People talk about music being timeless...well, I think it really applies to this album. All of the talent in the world at each instrument, plus incredible writing, makes this one of the greatest of all time. Could have come from any era, which is really what makes it so special.[First added to this chart: 04/11/2012]
Produced by Kit Lambert. Despite the flawed storytelling (is the question to ask a deaf dumb and blind pinball wizard really "what makes you so good" rather than "Why pinball???"), Tommy is ambitious and musically amazing. Hard to believe they did this all with just bass, drums, guitar and a French horn. When taken as a whole, this is an absolute gem of an album, with all four members performing at their very best. Don't take the concept too seriously,,,just have fun with it. It's worth the ride.[First added to this chart: 04/11/2012]
Produced by Jimmy Page. Out of the ashes of The Yardbirds, Zeppelin's debut marked a new sound in rock, heavier and more solid and perfect than ever before. They had yet to perfect what they were doing yet, and the sound is still miles above anything that had been done before in hard rock. The individual parts of this band show themselves as mighty forces, and the original songs show the promise of everything that was to come. As solid a debut album as you can ever hope to find, Led Zeppelin delivers.[First added to this chart: 04/13/2012]
Produced by Jimmy Page. The heaviest of all Zeppelin albums, and the strangest one for me (I have not listened to "Whole Lotta Love" all the way through since I was 15...I don't even know why any more). Now that they've properly credited the blues guys they were stealing from back then, there's nothing to be mad at them about anymore, which is why their albums keep climbing my charts. Zeppelin II is powerful stuff, and marks the best of their early work. They were growing fast into the amazing band they are known to be now...this is really amazing.[First added to this chart: 04/11/2012]
Produced by John Fogerty. The third album by Creedence has "Lodi", "Bad Moon Rising", "Commotion", "Green River"...and you wonder what all the excitement was about? Yet another exhibit in the case that CCR was maybe the best band on earth for a brief, and very prolific, period of time. Even the filler on albums from this period is brilliant and immediate, and they were in a period of could do no wrong. You should own every Creedence album. They are all great. Except for Mardi Gras. But that's another story...[First added to this chart: 04/12/2012]
