To me that Album had some of Janis Joplin's best work,Their version of Summer time was truly inspiring and the guitars on that song was mind blowing 8) --the dog

OK, I have to add one more that I've been listening to a lot - one that has blown me away with the writing, melodies, power and fury. American Idiot by Green Day. Billie Joe Armstrong has become one heck of a songwriter. I don't necessarily agree with him 100% of the time, but I certainly respect his rebellious eloquence.

Blame it on the lies that killed us, blame it on the truth that ran us down.

Hmm Top 5 and soooo many to choose from... Bach to Pantera to Patsy Cline to Glen Miller. But if I have to pick five it would probably be these in no particular order.

AC/DC Back In Black. Nobody serves straight up, in your face, good time, rock n roll like AC/DC.

Best of B.B. King- 20 Century Masters-What can I say it's the King.

Greatest Hits- Waylon Jennings- Icon, outlaw, and at one time the bass player for Buddy Holly. :D

Texas Flood-Stevie Ray Vaughan

The Best of the Beast-Iron Maiden- Real metal and guitar players that can actually play. :P

Give me a few hours a couple of those might change.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- "WOW--What a Ride!"

hmm.

Billy Joel - The Stranger
Billy Joel - Glass Houses
Billy Joel - Turnstiles
Billy Joel - The Bridge
Billy Joel - The Nylon Curtain

Ok ok... I guess to be a little diverse....
The Who's My Generation: The Very Best of the Who,
Cream's The Best of Cream,
Elton's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Billy Joel's Greatest Hit's Volume I & II
Blue Oyster Cult's Superhits

I'd feel very comfortable listing my favourite 17 as all Billy Joel. I love other music, but I love his more than anything. Might be the Long Islander in me ;)

OK...new picks, my mood has changed :D

1,Cheap Thrills--Big Brother and the Holding Co.

OMG!! The garbage (garage if we were better) band I was in just out of high school went by the name Cheap Thrills. Assuming they were first (we gigged in around 88 or 89, sure am glad we didnt make it big with that name. LOL... Never heard of em.

Geoo

It was the other way around, geoo: The band was Big Brother the Holding Co. -- the album was 'Cheap Thrills.'

lol. Believe it or not! I love Clapton's music, I really do, but I could easily put all of Billy Joel's above it.

Thank you everyone for posting your favourite albums....

the diversity of musical tastes here is incredible. i have to admit i may sound like a bit of a music nerd but i think that music is what defines us all as individuals and that us all can bond on the same subject even though our tastes are different.

So once again thank you very much.....

i find that alcohol taken in moderation, brings on all the effects of drunkeness......

Hey Taso, Whatever made you dislike BIlly Joel so much?

For Me the top 5 are:

1) Howlin Wolf- Moanin in the Moonlight

2) Lightning Hopkins- The Aladin Recordings

3) Rolling Stones- Sticky Fingers

4) Muddy Waters- The Anthology his best from 1947-72

5) Jeff Beck- Wired

Immature? Of course I'm immature Einstein, I'm 50 and in a Rock and ROll band.

Taso, I have to ask. If you love Billy Joel so much, what made you take up the guitar rather than the piano?

I don't think I could pick a top five albums, I go on more of a song by song basis. If I had to though, Derek and The Dominos' Layla would one and The Allman Brothers Live at Fillmore East would be another, as I've been listening to those two albums constantly for years. Other than that, I really don't know.

You know, I'm not sure. Guitar is a LOT easier to start with, meaning to begin playing, not as in "that's the start of my reasoning"... Tablature helps a lot, and then I couldn't read music at ALL. Now I can, takes me a while but I can.

I'd much rather be a good piano player than a good guitar player, I'd much rather be able to play Billy Joel, Elton John, Ray Charles, blues piano, etc than guitar. Plus, I know 0, zero, zilch, no good piano players that I can play with. A piano player is a lot rarer than a guitar player, at least when it comes to being under 20 and living on Long Island ;) I don't have the discipline needed for piano though.

I can play a bit...The intro to Miami 2017, the intro + a bit of Piano Man...lol. A few others bits and peices of things.

Maybe I'll start trying to really learn. I think I could learn now, if I really tried.
