The guilty pleasures thread got me to thinking. Let's apply that same concept to albums.

I'm sure all of us have a rock album in our collection that we absolutely love... for whatever reason, it struck a special chord (sorry) with you the very first time that you heard it... and from that day on...you love it...can't live without it.

And not only do you love it...you tried to turn your friends on to it thinking that you were doing them a huge favor...but when you played it for them...either they didn't like it at all, or the reponse was muted...more like the "It's OK but I sure don't hear what you hear" response.

OK. For me, it's Jefferson Airplane Bark.

I have loved this record from the first time that I heard it. I was esctatic when they finally released it on CD. Granted, it helps document a band that was slowly spinning apart at the time but still...there are some great songs on this one IMHO.

When The Earth Moves Again...Feel So Good...Third Week in the Chelsea...Rock and Roll Island...War Movie. Why do so many Jefferson Airplane fans dislike this one?

It's a mystery to me.

OK. I've told my story...

I'd love to hear yours.........

Or if you feel Bark is vastly under rated as I do, I'd love to hear it....

Who Else by Jeff Beck comes to mind for me

Jeff is for many an acquired taste, especially in the place where he is right now (or one that he is coming out of).

I think the whole CD is mindblowing, but I get "that look" from people when they listen to it.

Jeff's whole electronic phase started to wear thin for me after the third collection, but this one, to me, is a masterpiece.

LPS, you struck a chord with me bringing up that album, I loved that album and played the daylights out of it. It's been ages since I listened to that one, and now you've put me on a mission to go and find it and give it a listen. A few that come to mind -
Poco - Cantamos
GFR - Good Singin' Good Playin' (A Frank Zappa production and it shows)
Joe Jackson - Big World (Recorded direct to digital in front of a live audience)
J. Geils Band - Nightmares
Queen II
Jethro Tull - A Passion Play
Humble Pie - As Safe As Yesterday Is

Jethro Tull - A Passion Play



Hankpipes. You just struck a chord back with me on these two.

Passion Play. **** the critics. I thought this one was brilliant when I first heard it ...still do...

GFR- Good Singing Good Playing Are we the only two people who heard this one?. It was their last...It just may be their best...It tragically took the express lane directly to the cut out bin.

Frank was a very crafty, sympathetic producer, and according to the band was an absolute joy to work with. Frank even said publically that they were just a nice bunch of guys and he really enjoyed working with them. For Frank to like you is a compliment in itself I guess ...

And he donates a ripping guitar solo to Out To Get You. What more could you want?

A lot of stuff by the Kinks, especially "Schoolboys in Disgrace" and "Arthur". The Kink's Rock Operas were overshadowed by groups like the Who and Pink Floyd but are just as great.

les paul, I'm not really into the Airplane but I love Third Week in Chelsea. One of my favorite Jorma tunes.

I choose the Black Crowes "By Your Side " album. Hard core crowes fans seem to hate it. No killer Marc Ford solos but I think it's a fine straight ahead Rock N Roll album. I've been listening to it quite a lot of late.

The next-to-last CCR album, Pendulum, is awesome but no one talks about it. More keyboqards and horns, esp. the tunes Chameleon and Hideaway.

Anything by Chris Whitley, esp. Din Of Ecstacy, Hotel Vast Horizon and Dirt Floor.
RIP Chris.

ZZ Top- Rhythmeen ! A return to greatness. Came out around '94 or '95. I had done gave up on them putting anything out that was worthy of the early days but this ablum ranks as one of their best.

Yep. The critics hated that one too. Wankers.....

I think Tull's Heavy Horses was really solid too. It was the followup to Songs From the Wood.

I love this one! I remember when it first came out, a slack jawed critic for one of the rock mags that I read slammed it, saying it was "underproduced" and sounded like a demo.

He made me so mad that I actually wrote him a letter telling him that I thought he was an idiot.....

He never replied....

The Eric Burdon Band - Sun Secrets Killer versions of "When I Was Young" and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood".

The James Gang - Live In Concert It's not LAFE or Rockin' The Fillmore but it is an enjoyable listen. Joe and the boys sound like they're having alot of fun.
