  1. Coldplay by Coldplay ·
    Coldplays Parachutes is a must buy for all tastes. These days there are too few really talented & creative works.

  4. Abbey Road by The Beatles ·
    This is one of the best the Beatles recorded. Considering they were breaking up at the time & put out some of their most creative work, it gives that much more meaning.

  8. Road Rock Vol. 1 by Neil Young ·
    Poorly recorded. Live Rust is a better live Neil.

  9. Supernatural by Santana ·
    Seriously, anybody that has heard Abraxas knows that this along with most of Carlos later offerings are sell-outs & quite frankly the same old riffs over & over again. A master of guitar that finally got his Grammys but sold his soul.

  10. Revolver by The Beatles ·
    From opening track Taxman to closing Tomorrow Never Knows, a mind bender. My favorite is She Said by Lennon. Rumor is that he wrote this after a convo w/ Peter Fonda who apparantly was talking about suicide. Lennon found this an appropriate topi...(more)

  12. Gentle Giant ·
    Web site of a band that included the regular instruments as well as horns & real strings all played by the Gentle Giant band members Kerry Minnear, Ray,Philip & Derek Shulman, Gary Green & John Weathers. Octopus is one of my favorites.

  13. Happy The Man by Happy the Man ·
    Seeing them in concert is really the experience during the early days because the percussionist took 1/3 the stage & never sat down....moving & banging & tickeling various pieces of metal,ceramic,& glass & even a vacuum hose, Beck made the conce...(more)

  14. Inner Mounting Flame by John McLaughlin & Mahavishnu ·

  15. Souvenirs by Dan Folgelberg ·
    The best he did. Joe Walsh,Don Henley,Russ Kunkel,Al Perkins, & a host of other Studio Afficionados.

  16. Come On, Come On by Mary Chapin Carpenter ·
    Compiling some of the best studio musicians & her fresh writing stye, MCC releases to my delight some of the best music & lyrics for decades. Best track: The Hard Way, check out the lead by John Jennings!

  17. Steve Miller The Best 1968-1973 by Steve Miller ·
    Most people don't know what teve Miller recorded before The Joker, except for Livin In The USA. Here is a great cross section of his earlier work with notables such as Boz Skaggs, Paul McCartney,& Ben Sidren. Favorite track "Seasons".

  19. The Forgotten Trail by Poco ·
    Very good & captures for the most part the Spirit of Poco, a very innovative & high energy group that fell by the wayside I would guess becuase of lack of management not trying. These guys went on or came from the most influential bands of the 7...(more)

  20. What's Going On by Marvin Gaye ·
    This coolection of emotions encaptulates the mood of the late 60's & early 70's, unfortunately it fell on deaf ears. A Monster recording & bold commentary.
