The REAL 500 Best Albums Of All Time - Part 35 of 100 - "Wonders All"

Jefferson Airplane's first record might actually be their best! With Signe Toly Anderson singing instead of Grace, "Takes Off" from 1966 is solid from start to finish!

Joe Cocker's 1969 album called "Joe Cocker!" is nothing less than great! Nobody does a cover tune like Joe!!

Leon Russell is so talented and has done so much over the years, it's actually beyond comprehension! Long before this record came out, his keyboard skills were heard on records by everybody from the BYRDS to The Beach Boys and Gary Lewis and the Playboys just to scratch the surface! This 1970 solo record simply titled "Leon Russell" is just the topping on the cake of a musical genius!

Speaking of cake, Little Feat's 2nd album from 1972 called "Sailin' Shoes" featured this awesome Neon Park artwork, and so many great songs! This is the stuff that desert island adventures are made of!

Stevie Wonder's 1972 LP "Talking Book" is just another one of his amazing releases. This record featured the two timeless classics "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" and "Superstition!" Two songs stronger than most musicians on Rolling Stone's list can come up with in an entire career!


  1. I had a prof in grad school that was talking about how sometimes there can be improvements over the originals, "like Joe Cocker doing a Beatles song."
