You know what I mean....you could not get enough of it...played it to death and still have a special place in your heart for it......

Of course "Fillmore East" would be one for me......

But if you use an Allman Brother release...please pick another by someone else who is totaly unrelated to the Brothers and family.

My Numero Uno is :

Faith No More "The Real Thing"

Geezus..when I first heard it...it was a month before the radio went nuts with it and played it to death....

I did not take it out of my CD player for at least a month.....

Michael Patton who is one of the craziest, wildest Mofo's you ever could see live...just blew me away with his vocal power....the crunching guitar work...the heavy beats....man...I still love that cd. Of course it did furnish some radio hits and became overplayed......

But I will nerver forget the first time I heard it......I have the whole FTNM collection..."Angel Dust" was just as awesome.....

I have seen them live 4 times....Michael Patton would be dressed and looking like Robert Goulet and then next thing you know...he's wallowing on stage like a man posessed.

They busted up...hopefully not for good and Patton is now doing the Mr.Bungle/ Fantomas thing.......

So how about you....what release blew your mind ?

i kinda hate to admit this kenny but i got Kiss Alive II for easter back in '77 or '78 and i was sort of scared of that kind of music back then. coupled with all the blood on the back cover i was terrified. i was only 9. but the music i thought was pretty cool despite the constant super bowl crowd background. i accidently left the records in the car and they warped pretty badly but i continued listening to it for years after that. i cant stand Kiss now but back in the day......omg.

The Bad Plus "These Are the Vistas"....just release this year....wow! Power jazz trio (drums, piano and bass) you wouldn't believe they would be able to make that much sound...incredible mind blowing material....

Rusted Root "When I Woke"...very powerful album...they haven't done much since, but this one blew my mind....

Dylan's "Time Out of Mind"...listening to the last track, kind of in a daze...noticing it was at the 13 minute mark and for somereason my jaw just dropped....this album gently blew my mind...

those are but a few...others not only blew my mind but my memory as well....

It wasn't anything bad like Faith No More, I can assure you.

Just kidding there, bro. One recording that I have still not gotten over is Are You Experienced. Another is Blow by Blow (Jeff Beck). All the ARU releases blew my mind.

ODR! I too, am a FNM freak. I loved that album, i love the way he was a different characther in each song....Zombie Eaters is awesome.

But, I must say, while that one did blow my mind, as did Californication by the RHCP, i think the most recent Mind BLow came to me from Tool - Lateralius .....i love metal and that takes it to the next level.

Before that, Workingman's Dead - especially when Jerry started singing "I can't sleep much longer than linda..." (at least that is what i thought he said)...anyway, half way through my first listen i had to run upstairs and cry. wild stuff.

Somethig FUNKADELIC...

FREE YOUR MIND freaked me out the most cuz of the recording tricks and channel shifting (though my mother freaked because of the nude black woman on the cover).

MAGGOT BRAIN was spookiest cuz of the cover with the black woman buried to her neck...then you open the gate fold and it's all bleached bones and skull!!!!

The next FNM was called "Angel Dust"..it rocks too !...maybe even better than the first one.....Patton can sing anything...right now i'm listening to him sing "I started a Joke" that was by the BeeGee's (Uh oh..them again !)

AC/DC Back in Black, that tape never left the boom box for the whole summer of football, baseball, etc etc... 5th grade that fall and the music teacher kept my friends and I after class to admonish us about playing that "devil's music" and all the lesbian connotations of the name AC/DC. Glad she woke us up to that...still love the album.

I got into these groups, in order: Kiss, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Blackmore's Rainbow. I was out looking for what to get next. I had heard of this "Pink Floyd," but didn't know squat about their music. I had seen the DSOTM logo countless times . . . so figured I'd give it a shot. I ask the record store dude, what's this like . . . a lot of hard rock? (see what I was previously listening to, above). He pauses, gets this far away look in his eyes, and says, "it's a different kind of rock."

I was probably 10 or 11. So I took the chance, and I've never been the same since.

As a teen, I dug Judas Priest and Maiden along with everybody else in the 'hood, but could never understand why they didn't enjoy things like The Six Wives of Henry VIII as much as I did.

Damn...now i have to go edit my all time favorite list. Rick Wakeman is so cool. I havent had that album in awhile, i leant it to some dude i was dating and when we broke up he kept calling me, and calling me "Linnie, I have to see you, i have all your Rick Wakeman albums". I was like, Dude, forget it - there yours now, something to remember me by...

Also, you know what blew my mind? The first Metallica album. Came out when i was a sophmore in HS - man, i had never heard any noise like that before. Took a bit to get used to but i turned it to a MetaliCat in no time flat....

As for me, and my handle kind of gives it away, is Miles Davis's Kind of Blue. I had been listening to jazz for a while, mostly Coltrane, Monk, and Charlie Parker, but had not really listened to a lot of Miles. Then my friend brought over KOB and I was absolutely floored. I bought that cd and it stayed in my cd player for over three months. The only time I took it out was to take it with me in the car.

Another one that just blew my mind away was Bitches Brew. That whole cd is just mesmerizing. The groove on those tracks was just wicked.

North Mississippi Allstars had a big impact on me too when I first heard Shake Hands With Shorty. I was so addicted to that damn cd I drove my roommate and my girlfriend crazy.

O.K. Computer by Radio knocked my socks off too as did Kid A. Aside from the Fillmore album and Bitches Brew, there is no better cd to sit back and bake away the day.

Ahh, college, those were the days. I wish I had the time to sit around like I used to and just listen to music and melt.

Peace.

Joe's Garage - Frank Zappa

The first time I heard the Central Scrutinizer I loved it. It was a Way Of Life!!

BTW - this album has the funniest libretto of all time, even better than Tull's Thick as a Brick.

a few I can remember in no particular order:

EAT A PEACH - Abb (almost every abb album first time)
CLOSE TO THE EDGE - Yes
QUADROPHENIA - The Who
SOUTHERN HARMONY & MUSICAL COMPANION - The Black Crowes
EUROPE '72 - Grateful Dead
ALL THINGS MUST PASS - George Harrison
YESSHOWS - Yes (The Gates of Delirium blew me away!)
BITCHES BREW - Miles Davis

I would say any and all Beatles, but I've been listening to them since birth, so I've always loved them and they always blow me away

Wow! I just read some of what you guys posted, I didn't see before I posted! -- Yeah, I can't agree more. BITCHES BREW is very cool. An amazing album. I'm into a lot of jazz, but I think it's all cause of that album! -- Also, I can't believe I forgot to mention Zappa. I'm actually probably forgetting tons of stuff. -- I think Metallica's Ride the Lightning blew me away at the time, but I haven't listened to it in so long. I was a metalhead when I was a kid.
