The REAL 500 Best Albums Of All Time - Part 31 of 100 - "Five More Not On Rolling Stones' List"

 Blue Cheer - Vincebus Eruptum (1968)  This record was a predecessor to both Punk and Metal music! Not the most talented guys in the world with Loud guitars and one goal, to rock your ass!

 Fleetwood Mac - "English Rose" (1969) Of all the incarnations of Fleetwood Mac, the Peter Green era is still my favourite! From "Stop Messin' Round" to "Albatross," this is one solid record, and it also has one of the best covers of all time!

 In 1965 The Moody Blues came out with their first record alternately called "Go Now" or "The Moody Blues #1. The Moody Blues were ballsy, the opening song is James Brown's "I  Go Crazy,"  and the rest of the record follows in spectacular style! "Go Now" is one of my favourite songs of all time!

 There are a couple of Stevie Wonder albums on Rolling Stones' list, but somehow "Innervisions" didn't make the cut. I'm sorry, that is just not possible or plausible! Made in 1973, "Innervisons" contains "Too High," "Livin' For The City," "Higher Ground," and "Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing!" Case closed!

Delaney and Bonnie had more than one great record, but I think my favourite is "To Bonnie From Delaney," the 1970 soul shaker that features not only the awesome vocal talents of this couple but also two of my favourite musicians, Duane Allman and Jim Dickinson!

  1. I just bought that Blue Cheer at a garage sale a few months back. It plays as smooth as silk! Quite the find.

    I have an album called The Original Fleetwood Mac that I've loved for years.
