Quite a good list you have there. Layla and Fillmore East should be on the top of anybody's list. They are mine!!

As far as Neil Young, WELD, which is basically a cousin of Ragged Glory gets a nod.

LED ZEPPELIN I is my choice for Jimmy Page.

Cream's 1966 debut FRESH CREAM is one of the best blues guitar albums.

Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert either the original or the remastered.

DEREK & THE DOMINOES in concert/ At The Fillmore. Plenty of Clapton on my list for obvious reasons!!

We have to include Hendrix so I select ELECTRIC LADYLAND.

TEXAS FLOOD by SRV

AMERICAN BEAUTY by the Dead

Also I like the debut album of the New Riders of the Purple Sage

Most of what has been posted and..

Who Else Jeff Beck
1st Zep hands down
Shine on Brightly by Procol Harum which is not a guitar album but Robin Trower shines pretty bright on that one.

I am glad to see somebody else mention Chicago II ...most peopel think of Chicago as an easy listening band...truth is those first 2 albums were great and it went downhill after that.....Chicago II was the first album I ever bought,I got it for free with the purchase of my 19.98 cassette player which i thought was the greatest thing in the world..as I recall the cassette cost 6.98..I love that album and still play it to this day...although I no longer have the cassette player!

My list of favorite guitar albums would have to include John Mayall Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton. That album opened up a whole new avenue for guitar-based bands/albums.

This may upset EddieP, but I would put GD's Skull and Roses many notches above Europe '72, for guitar album-ness, and overall tightness of musicianship. (Sorry, Eddie!)

Also, in my opinion any list of guitar albums that doesn't include ZZTop w/ Rev. Willie G just isn't right.

On the money!

Skull & Roses is so much better than Europe 72.

Everything mentioned above, but I also love Mike Bloomfield's If You Love These Blues, Play Them as You Please. And I must add MTB's Where We All Belong.

Hey today I was listening to the Ten Years After double CD LIVE AT THE FILLMORE EAST 1970!!!!!!!! This album definitely rivals the ABB show in intensity and guitar proficiency (courtesy of Alvin Lee). You know there should be more archival releases from other artists that played on the FE stage.

By the way the Ten Years After album can be called 'LAFE' because it's legitimately titled "Live At Fillmore East" whereas the ABB title is merely "At Fillmore East." Calling the ABB album LAFE is a misnomer.

In addition to what's up already, I'll give the Stones some love...Brussels Affair...Keith Richards amazing on rhythm and Mick Taylor sizzling leads in counterpoint. Midnight Rambler alone is worth the price of the whole disk.

Can't believe no one has mentioned Lou Reed's .."Rock 'n Roll Animal"...if the intro to, "Sweet Jane"...with Hunter & Wagner does not grab you......you might be deaf.

Okay, I'm going to do this without looking at [hardly] any of the previous posts.

No order:

Leo Kottke - 6 and 12 string guitar
Van Halen I
Led Zeppelin II
Stefan Grossman, Yazoo Basin Boogie
ABB - At Fillmore East
Johnny Winter And, Live
John Williams and Julian Bream, Together
Various Artists, Fingerpicking Guitar Delights
Santana, Santana
Frank Zappa, Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar

Could probably do another ten without much thought, but those are the first ten to pop into my head.
