    OK----if only "ONE" from your youth could make the LIST. Which one? Made a difference in YOUR life.

    - It is SCARY how relevant "BOOKENDS" is....now that we are "OLE".

    - List your absolute FAVORITE and then a few more.

    Any thoughts on sound quality for way back when? Remember playing on my family's Magnavox console. 75% furniture and 25% audio. Mahogany floorstanding case w/speakers and radio (FM).

    only one that's tough but will say Pink Floyd-DSOTM fond memories of that one not 50 yet but getting there. If you were to say name 2, then Deep Purple Made IN Japan was close. Those were the first two I owned.

    ....anybody remember "Hootenanny's" ? A friend with a guitar and a lot of willing participants. Despite all the baggage....it was a GREAT time to be YOUNG.

    I agree, dee, it was a great time to be young. If I had to pick one album it would be "Sgt. Peppers..." It was unlike anything that had come before it. It resonated through me then and still does today when I listen to it.

    I've always been a fan of the Beatles and the "Hey Jude album" brings found memories of my younger days.

    Aside from this album, always been a huge fan of the Beatles songs overall, The Guess Who, Creedence (CCR) I can still hear "Susie Q" without even playing it (have been moon since I played that album). After the break up of the Beatles, I naturally turned to Paul McCartney & Wings which IMO, was the closest to the Beatles with however a touch of innovation. Of course, their Band on the Run album is my favorite and IMO rivals with just about any Beatles album.

    53 here, so......

    As much as I like DSOTM, it's been played to death. So, I have two and I can't pick one over the other.

    Deep Purple "Machine Head"
    The Who "Who's Next"

    There's a bunch more, but these two stick out for me the most.

    I am 50 now so I guess I qualify. There are so many but when I was 17 it was a toss up between Queen's A Day At The Races and Led Zeppelin's IV. Nazareth's Razamanaz was in heavy rotation then too. If you were to ask me today, my choices would be totally different.

    Dang, I'm about a year and a half too young to qualify...

    Probably a good thing because I'd have a hard time narrowing it down to 10, let alone picking 1 out...

    At 59, one album that sounds as fresh today as in my youth is the Allman Brothers At Fillmore East. Never gets old never sounds dated. A classic.

    Deep Purple "Machine Head". I'm not quite 50 yet, but got the album when it came out. I was 8 at the time, still one of my favorites. By the time I was 9 I had every album they had released.

    at 14 it was Miles' Kind Of Blue and Parliament's Funkentelechy Vs. The Placebo Syndrome.
    Guess what... The 2 are still in HEAVY rotation in my house to this day.

    I've gone into brain lock trying to narrow it down ..... until I unfreeze, I'll throw out Carol King's "Tapestry".

    ..... opposite end of the spectrum, Black Sabbath's "Into the Void" ....... that King Crimson album, "ITCOTCK" was killer ...... Neil Young's "Harvest " ..... of the non-musical variety Firesign Theater's "Don't Crush that Dwarf Hand Me the Pliers" ..... ELP's "Tarkus" ...... okay, I'm just going to go lay down on the couch and finish my flashback .....

    Now that I'm 62, Led Zeppelin I, and Dark Side of the Moon still rock today. I cannot stand Simon and Garfunkel. Not today, or 50 years ago.

    Simon and Garfunkel? Perhaps, some day, someone will start a thread asking what our least favorite albums are and you could post this again, where it would be more appropriate.

    I'm right there with you! I still play it just about every weekend.

    I don't think I could pick just one album: most everything by the Beatles, Led Zeppelin's first, Jeff Beck Truth (featuring the great Micky Waller on drums, Rod Stewart vocals, Ron Wood on bass, Nicky Hopkins on piano), and so many more!

    I'm 52 -- and I own almost no music made after, oh, the early 80s. Most of it from the 70s. Some of us just never get past that 'music I grew up with' stage.

    I agree that it's difficult to pick just one album, and there have been many great mentions already. But I'd have to put some of the classic Yes stuff out there - "Close To The Edge", for instance. And maybe Rush's "2112" (and/or "Moving Pictures"), or something like Robin Trower's "Bridge of Sighs".

    And some might complain about something like Queen's "A Night At The Opera", but that album is a true masterpiece as well.

    I don't qualify, but here's my pick: The original US release of Rubber Soul. The later re-release with some of the Revolver songs on it, I didn't care for.
    Yes, I'm aware, that the British version is correct, doesn't mean I have to like it.
    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!

    You may be more 'qualified' than some of us older folks -- some of us ain't got such great ears anymore!

    Maybe those countless nights standing in front of a guitar amp weren't such a good idea after all...

    ...i am talking about 1964 . The TIMES they were a CHANGing era. The Beatles were still into "I want to HOLD your HAND". There was R&R (50's), the early British invasion, and FOLK. Of course Jazz was around. Of course the later Beatles and bands like the "WHO" are legendary. There was a transition period that changed your life forever. That was the early 60's.

    ...Nothing like the Beatles from 67 on. The WHO is still one of my all TIME . But that was a few years later. After the EVOLUTION>.....revolution.
