No offense, but I don't see how you could mention those two albums in the same sentence.

Freddie King 1934-1976 is an excellent disc. It was going to be next on my list. Besides having Clapton and Sonny Terry, the version of "Aint nobody's bizness but my own" is one of my favorite all time versions of that song. Would love to see ABB do that and rest "Woman Across the River". Excellent pick fretsman

Way too subjective and way too many great albums to even attempt this. Lots of great choices above though.

Look at these lp's listed. No wonder we love music so much!
B.t.w. I think Electric Ladyland came out in 1968.

Those who joke about the 70s and make fun of the times on sitcoms don't realize the great music that came out of that era.

All the above are fine choices. Albums that stick out for me are ones that bring back memories of good times, girlfriends at the time and good friends.

The ABB albums are of course obvious choices. I think I wore out my first copy of "Brothers and Sisters" on our hi-fi...and I chewed up an 8 track in my Oldsmobile

(I know, you young folks are wondering what an 8 track in an Oldsmobile is)

3 that bring back fond memories, and are still played today are:

Dylan - Blood On The Tracks
Marshall Tucker Band - Searchin For A Rainbow
Neil Young - After The Goldrush

Great Thread by the way!

Miles Davis - beats them all with "Bitches Brew" one of, if not the best, and most ground breaking albums ever .
