This morning I pulled out, what I remember as the one of the first concept albums I ever heard....Blood Sweat and Tears first album.."Child is Father to the Man"

Al Kooper's masterpiece to love and all the joy and pain that goes along with it. An overture, an underture and songs that seem to all blend together.

Yes.

I have heard arguements for and against that this is a concept album.

I also read that it started that way and turned into something different, which is
why John repeatedly denied it was a concept album. I think Paul does too.

Yeah, I know the argument about it too, but I think it's widely regarded by fans a a concept album. It just flows together so nicely, although that's quite a silly statement, being that it's possibly the best album ever made.
Anyway, I've always considered it in the concept genre, and wondered if others did too.

Cool thread -- anyone recall the 1977 "Intergalactic Touring Band" concept-approach album -- still have it, the booklet is actually the focal pt. as much as the music is -- types like Rod Argent, Clarence Clemons, Meatloaf, Arthur Brown (of "Fire!" fame) are on there

also dittoing the previous thread -- Tommy & Quadrophenia are masterpieces, & the booklets likewise are just as cool

Drive by Truckers' Southern Rock Opera ought to be listed too. I never tire of that one.

I wonder where concept album ends and simply an album that ought to be listened to in its entirety begins. Floyd's Dark Side comes to mind. Not sure if that fits here though.

Is the concept album idea is doomed w/ the advent of Ipods?

ahhh, I was wondering what to listen to this morning, great great album.

I wish they would reissue Al's first couple of CD's.

that's a very interesting question -- I would say yes -- if maybe for no other reason than just the art/accompanying lyrics/cover art aspect -- not entirely overall though -- "concept" type music, if that indeed is one whole piece, or a series of songs w/a common-denominator etc., can still be made & I'm sure is

One of my alltime favorite records. Al Kooper seemed to be everywhere (Bloomfield, Dylan, Stones) in the late 60's early 70's. Finally got to see him live 2 years ago in Albany. Despite being almost totally blind from a brain tumor he paraded through the crowd.

Al "I Love You, More Than You'll Ever Know"

I wish he'd come to Colorado. I saw him back in, I'm guessing 1970, at Lafayette college in Easton. The same night Blood Sweat and Tears was playing in Allentown. He made a couple comments about that

He also played a mean guitar and ripped off a couple of great solo's.

If you can youtube him for his explanation of "Like A Rolling Stone." In short he backed out of guitar when Bloomfield played; sat at the organ which was not his forte. Played a 1/2 beat behind. Dylan, being the genious he is, told him to play a beat behind rather than throwing him out of the session. Hence, we have the haunting organ lagging behind the tune. That is why Bob is Bob and no one else is.

For the Prog fans out there....Hero and Heroine by the Strawbs. A great band in concert, two keyboard players and great dynamics.

Lou Reed "New York"


Love this record. I also liked the "Songs for Drella" fictitious biography of Andy Warhol that Lou did with John Cale, even though it got panned in the press. It was really mellow, even by Lou standards, but I think a great great record. I'll hafta look for both of these and dust them off.

The Who's "Tommy" of course too.

Many great ones by the Kinks. Some work better than others but the two greatest are without question the Kinks are the Village Green Preservation Society (1968) and the full blown rock opera "Arthur or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire (1969)
