Here are three: Physical Grafitti, Lamb Lies Down on Broadway, The Wall.

What are some others? And why don't we see this anymore (granted the average CD release is much longer than vinyl albums were)?

I see double-albums here and there. These days it takes a LOT of music (100 minutes or so) to justify a double-CD...

I bet the Deep End would've been huge in an earlier time, especially at a point where some of the bass players were still recognized as the kings of their territory.

Anyway, I did want to say that I think, had it been released in, say, 1973, Gov't Mule's Live with a Little Help from Our Friends would be regarded with some of the best live albums and double albums of the period.


The double live albums of the Seventies were very cool. One I neglected to mention is Thin Lizzy - Live and Dangerous. And that is one of my favorites, even though they dubbed a bunch of the dual guitar stuff.

Black Sabbath - We Sold Our Soul For Rock and Roll....I used to have that album hanging up in my room, when it opens up there was this lady laying in the coffin with a large cross on her chest. my grandparents used to ride my ass about that one!

Does Desolation Angels (bad co.) count? it opened up! (But was only one album) - it had a cool picture inside. plus, i used to stash stuff in that album and was never disappointed when i used to open it up. (OOOOH THATS WHERE I LEFT THAT!)

Not a double album, but has anyone looked more funky than Sly Stone when you open up the Sly & The Family Stone - Greatest Hits album. I love that picture.
Two more double vinyls.
Joe Cocker - Mad Dogs & Englishmen
The Band - Rock of Ages

Well, I kind of meant studio albums of new material, as opposed to live sets and greatest hits compilations, but it's all good.

Any of you (though not all of you, please) may give me a good kick in the pants for leaving out Tales of Topographic Oceans (and me touting Yes all the time, for shame).

Thanks, Carlos

And thanks for that Genesis Freebie, cool stuff, all my favorite tunes. I like Gabriel's little stories between the songs.

I reember the double-album days well! How cool was it when our favorite bands/artisis used to come out with those gems!

A few goodies I remember:

Bob Dylan- Blonde on Blonde
Floyd - The Wall - of course!
ABB - EAP
Neil Young - Decade - 3 albums I think? although its a greatest hits package
Elton John - wasn't Goodbye Yellowbrick road a double album? can't remember now.
Quite a few live albums obviously.

many more - too lazy to think right now.

Physical Graffitti was pretty cool when it came out ....

Wasn't Yessongs a triple album ?

Anyway, all of them were great for de-seeding !!

Not so rock & roll, but Stevie Wonder's Songs to the Key of Life (it was a double album with a 45!) and not so studio, but I haven't been able to find it, Concert for Bangladesh. This makes me want to go digging thru my albums...

Hi Randy,

OK, I won't kick you but there surely must be a line

Glad the show got to you alright....that tour must have been a real treasure. Some of the funniest dialogue is between the band and the audience.............

Yes, Yessongs is originally 3 lps with a booklet included. Yesshows is two, and the Keys to Ascension volumes are two discs, so I guess that is also 3 discs each

Nobody mentioned it, but Ummagumma was also 2 lps.

How about Pink Floyd's Ummagumma? one record live, one studio.

Yes, EddieP, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was a double.

Carlos "I'm stealing Ron's thunder again" Rivera mentions the 3 lp Yessongs.

Frank Zappa did several double studio albums. Freak Out, the first Mothers album, was in fact, the first double album ever released. Joe's garage vol. 2 & 3, Shiek Yerbouti, and the 3 lp set of Shut up and Play Your Guitar are some of the best. How come CliffnTina didn't get that one? He's as much a Zappa Freak as me.

Bruce Springsteen's The River
Johnny Winter-Second Winter 3 sides of music and one blank piece of vinyl.
The Who-Tommy such a groundbreaker!


If I run upstairs to the store room, I could give you a pretty good list of double lps that I've got.

The live doubles were so popular, though.

Deep Purple-Made in Japan
Uriah Heep-Live
Humble Pie-Smokin'
Grand Funk Railroad-Mark, Don, & Mel
Frampton-Comes Alive

My first ABB was Beginnings. Their first two studio albums re-released as a double. My copy is pretty worn.
So is Live at Fillmore East.

Ah, the Good Olde Daze

Real nice thread, all the mentions are right on, especially Electric Ladyland, Layla, Tommy, Quadrophenia, & the White Album -- I know you specified studio Randy -- but, since live doubles are mentioned here, I gotta mention DP's Made in Japan -- also It's Alive, by the OMDaredevils.

Hmmm. I'm positive my Fillmore East was a single vinyl record. Interesting. It was an 80's reissue, so perhaps the cutting technology was a little "tighter" than on previous pressings.
