As I am always looking to expand my musical interests (most of which reside in the Seventies), I am looking to find a few of the Glam rock classics. Any Glam Rock afficionados out there who can give me some recommendations for the best bands and albums?

David Bowie -The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust...

T-Rex - Electric Warrior

T-Rex- The Slider

Slade- Slayed ?

And even though their earliest stuff is kind of bubblegum glam rock,

The Best of Sweet

Alright so I grew up in the 80's and worshipped Motley Crue, Warrant, Skid Row, Twisted Sister, etc. Although I can't recommend any of those with a straight face, here are a few that still sound good to me today...

Guns N' Roses GN'R Lies. Lots of acoustic stuff (Patience is on there) and a pretty damn good cover of Mama Kin (Aerosmith song). I just dug this out of my old CD's in one of my moving boxes from a year ago.

Another good one with some obscure songs on it is Van Halen's Diver Down. Some odd but good songs that you don't hear on the radio every hour on the hour.

Tesla's Love Song is another great one if you are looking for a single song to download.

It was hard to think of some really good ones! I'll post some more when (if) I think of them.

ONce you get past Bowie, Mott the Hoople (and their successors) and TRex its essentially an exercise in futility.

Well, I'm not a stickler for labels and categorization, but I don't think any of that falls under the "glam rock" umbrella.

I came of age in the 80's (12 in 1980, 22 in 1990), so I was right there with you through all of that, good and bad, but glam rock was basically a 70's thing.

Well, honest (drunken) mistake...glam and hairband seem the same to me. So how about Ziggy Stardust? The albums I quoted were the best thing I could come up as far as 80's go...

Nothing wrong with the Hair/Glam era...some people like a wide variety of music, like myself and i'm damn glad I do. I'm not into running down someone elses choice of music, just because I'm not into it.

I can't sit around listening to a bunch of "Jam" Bands all the time.

I love all things Cooper and he is part of the glam era but i would call it more shock than glam. They were the opposite of the "pretty" glam thing.

My favorites from the era are

Bowie

Aladdin Sane
Diamond Dogs
Ziggy

Mott The Hoople

T-Rex -
Electric Warrior

I am NOT a glam rock king, but the Bowie albums of that era are KILLER, and not just "Ziggy," and please do not just judge Ziggy by the title cut! All of the Mick Ronson-era Bowie albums rock: Aladdin Sane, Hunky Dory, Man WHo Sold, and if you can find Santa Monica 1972, that is the key.
T Rex Electric Warrior, yes.
Kiss :Alive, yes.
