What a hard question. If you answer though, you could win a $500 shopping spree at Millpond Records and Books! All the details are right here, but basically you just have to send in a picture of you with your favourite album and tell us a little bit about why you love it. I’ll start.
It’s a tough one. There are so many great choices that I could pick and feel alright about my choice. Rumours, Abbey Road, Graceland, So many from The Who, Stones, or live Maiden, but I always come back to one: Led Zeppelin I
Not only is it an insanely great album, but there is no other album that makes me wish I was alive at a different time more. To have been 14 years old and put the needle down on that record for the first time. Oh man. That would have been so sweet. Just hearing the first notes on Good Times and I’m hooked. Then Babe I’m Gonna Leave You and You Shook Me is 13 of the best minutes of blues rock you can find. And I’m a firm believer that Dazed and Confused may be the greatest hard rock song to ever be recorded. And that’s just the first side! Grab another drink, flip that beauty over and you get more great Zeppelin. The fact that this was their first studio album blows my mind. It is so great. And there are contributions from all members, which makes it even more impressive.
