OT: First album favorites
Posted by: BluzDude ()
Date: July 6, 2008 09:42

What bands or recording artists, can you say, that after releasing so many albums, their first release is still your favorite? I would not include artists with only one or two releases.

Here is my list, there may be more, but this is what I can think of at this time:

Led Zeppelin
the Doors
Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced
Black Crowes - Shake your Moneymaker
the Cars

I favorize. I will throw in a list later.

This is an album that rocked my boat, and it still does:

Stevie Ray Vaughan & The Double Trouble: TEXAS FLOOD

(If I need to pick up two albums from the 80's to the isolated island with me it would be this one one and TATTOO YOU - my first Stones record)

As for BluzDudes list, I agree about the Cars.
But for Zep, it's Physical Graffitti for me.
And Hendrix...Electric Ladyland.
The Doors...the grand finale...LA Woman.
As for the Black Crowes, I agree their first was the best, but I don't listen to any of them anyways.

whilst it wasnt originally released as an album per se, Elvis' Sun sessions stand up alongside anything he ever did later.

Interesting question.

Van Halen
The Doors

Um.....

Jet
Suede

I dunno about High Voltage. Fantastic album. Dirty Deeds is so good too. That whole group of AC/DC albums is excellent. That's a tough one there.

What a goofy question. This one is making me think, which hurts.

Oh, I know -

Talk Is Cheap. I love Main Offender but TIC has Locked Away, probably Keith's best song ever. Such a beautiful song.

From the ones already mentioned I would pick these:

Little Feat
J. Geils Band
Led Zeppelin (well, their third album comes close!)

and let me add these:

Velvet Underground (in spite of Nico)
J.J. Cale
Warren Zevon
Flying Burrito Brothers
AND:
THE MODERN LOVERS!!!
