My favourite album of all time.

post suggest by Mick O’Dowd

Mick O’Dowd… My fave album off all-time was What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye.

John Storer… Hard Days Night,The Monkees debut and Motown Chartbusters Volume 3

Jon McCallion… Hard days night, with Motown Chartbusters volume 5 was the best.

Nick Prince… Mine are, The Monkees, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn and Jones Ltd, Tho Who Sell Out, and, John Lennon, Double Fantassy. I do adore all late Beatles stuff tho.

John Storer… The three albums mentioned above are my favourite pop albums of all time. My three favourite albums of all time are (in reverse order): “Bridge of Sighs” – Robin Trower, “Searching For The Young Soul Rebels” – Dexy’s Midnight Runners, and (for me) the most perfect album ever made “White Bread, Black Beer” – Scritti Politti

Jim Breeds… Bridge o Sighs is a GREAT album. I only have it on musicassette though so haven’t played it in years.

Sarah Harvey…Bridge Of Sighs…. now that is a classic. I have it on Vinyl (still) and now on digital…..as you do!

Eric Cawthraw… Favorite albums: this is a real toughie; to be honest I’ve tried to get this down to 3 but have failed and nearly had an embolism in the process! I still play most of my record collection – old and new and the best I can come up with is a list of those that I play the most and have stood the test of time for me personally. I found it damned difficult to get it down to this. How on earth you can prioritize to one or even three for something that subjective is beyond my tiny brain! So you can take any 3 from the following, there’s no preference in the way these are listed, the longer I think, the longer the list would get:

Chicago Transit Authority.     Third World War 1.    Livin’ the Blues – Canned Heat.
Twice Removed from Yesterday – Robin Trower.    Blackouts – Ashra.
Ahead Rings Out – Blodwyn Pig.    666 – Aphrodite’s Child.    Omega III.
Made in Germany [Double LP version] – Amon Duul II.    UFO1.    Led Zep 1.
Mountains – Steamhammer.

Andy Knight… Easy; Chicago, Blodwyn and LZ1 🙂 Problem is I am now going through my vinyl and thinking why do I think that was a great record, the music yes, but also the context, where I was, who I was with, who was I playing with at the time, Eric is right it gets very difficult and you can start making lists under different headings, so ‘living alone in Athelstan Road I was listening to BeBopDeluxe – Sunburst,AWB and Lou Reed-Transformer and much more, young free and single!

Phil Thornton… Led Zep4, Foxtrot, Leftfield.

Colin Fox… Can’t Buy a Thrill, Steel Dan. This is the first song I heard by them and I became a fan. The same reason for Hold The Line, Toto album. A lot of people don’t like this band including Elvis Costello, what happened to him? (in my opinion they are great session musicians, and Take it easy, Eagles album, again great musicians and the harmonies are brilliant.

Mick O’Dowd… Just uneathed Stax/Volt Tour Live In London with Otis Redding. That man got soul.

John Wilde… Sgt Peppers. The Beatles. Electric Ladyland. Jimi Hendrix. Blind Faith.

Eric Cawthraw… Andy Knight makes a very good point – it’s hard to divorce the music from the spirit of the time it was made and the loved ones and friends that share/shared it with you. It is more than a clinical process. Oops – forgot to put any Jimi H or Cream on my list – as if it isn’t long enough!

John Wilde… Todays favourites. Chimera. Bill Nelson. Music of my mind. Stevie Wonder.
Sheer Heart Attack. Queen.
