The REAL 500 Best Albums Of All Time - Part 25 & 26 of 100

The deeper I get, the more difficult it is becoming!
The Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East! (1971) Probably the best 'Live" album ever made!

Big Brother And The Holding Company - Cheap Thrills (1968) Two words, Janis Joplin! What else do you need to know?

Crosby, Stills & Nash (1969) This is almost a perfect album!

Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow (1967) The Airplane's second record is also almost perfect!

Santana (1969)  From 1967 to 1969 San Francisco ruled the musical world!

The Kinks - Something Else (1967) England wasn't doing so bad themselves! This record upon release was totally unique unto itself!

Having A Rave Up With The Yardbirds (1965) Just too good!

The Doors - Strange Days (1967) The Doors' second album was every bit as good as their first one, and maybe even better!

Pearl Jam - Vitalogy (1994) I could do without "Better Man" but the rest of this album is great from start to finish!

Grateful Dead - Workingman's Dead (1970) I'm not the biggest Grateful Dead fan in the world, but this record is great! The Dead as "working class heroes!"  Fantastic concept!

Okay, so that's another ten albums that are on Rolling Stone's Top 500 that I can actually agree on! It's pretty much a no-brainer, they're all classics!


  1. Pretty awesome line up here! Cheap Thrills is one of my personal top 5. Surrealistic Pillow and Live at Filmore East are both top 30. I love the Doors too.

  2. RH,
    Yeah, I've veered all over the place so far, but some records are just a lot more obvious than others. I'll say one thing, you've got good taste!! Thanx for sticking with me through this plodding process!!
