So recently as of September of last year I decided to find some of the best all time albums ever made. I have always loved music but I never considered that listening to a whole album can be a lovely experience. So I have gathered a might list of albums that I love front to back and I was wondering if ADISC could tell me their favorite album or what they think the best album of all time is. I won't write my list down unless someone wants to actually read it as it is pretty long. :)

Those are some great choices. I think I've heard horses but that's all from that list besides a few songs on those ACDC albums.

Ah, dogboy you aren't showing your age.

I like Revolver by the Beatles, Tapestry by Carole King, Pet Sounds by Beach Boys and A Love Supreme by John Coltrane among many others.

Oh Revolver, Pet Sounds and the Wall! I had forgotten about them and they're great albums. Revolver is interesting because they used some polyrhythms in that album. Rubber Soul is another great Beatles album as well.

I'm going to stick with the concept and name only one "best": Grateful Dead - "Europe '72"

There are a lot of great Dead albums, but this one covers a lot of their styles and captures their live essence the best. The Dead have always been a live performance group first and foremost.

A niggling thought in the back of my mind says "Woodstock" should be considered if only because it covers so many more bases. It certainly qualifies as the Cliff's Notes of 60's music.

Hmm, I've been interested in the Grateful Dead for a while but haven't listened to a full album of theirs. Will have to listen to this one. Great suggestion!

I think I could listen to the Beach Boys "Pet Sounds" over and over again. It brings back such wonderful and painful memories from when I was in college and madly in love with someone.

Oh jeez, I'm listening to Cat Stevens this morning and I'm kicking myself for having omitted Tea for the Tillerman.

Tea for the Tillerman I had heard was really good. For sure look into that.

Actually, the REAL essence of the Dead was captured a few years ago when they released a limited edition boxed set with recordings of the ENTIRE Europe '72 tour. Every concert. "Was the best Sugar Magnolia in Munich.... or London?" It would be kinda tough to come by one of those now I think, and more listening time than you'd care to put into it. That's closer to the real Dead experience, as true Deadheads would take time off and schedule vacations to follow the band for as much of a tour as they could manage. I was never that hardcore, but knew a number of people who were.

They recorded nearly every show they did over the years, and encouraged fans to do that as well with a special taper's section behind the sound board at concerts. There's a vast archive of shows generally available, with trading and downloading approved by the band as long as you don't profit from it. A lot of it is available, or at least referenced at Dead.net if you have any interest. In the days before ticketmaster and the internet, there was even a phone hotline for fans to get a jump on tickets before the general public became aware.
