ABB - Brothers & Sisters, Eat A Peach, Live at FE
Black Oak Arkansas - Raunch n Roll Live
ARS - Dog Days, Third Annual Pipe Dream
Eric Qunicy Tate - Drinking Man's Friend, EQT
Wet Willie - Keep On Smilin'
Jethro Tull - Aqualung, Passion Play
Beatles - Abbey Road, Let It Be, Rubber Soul, White Album
MTB - A New Life, Where We All Belong, MTB
Monkees - Head
Captain Beyond - Captain Beyond
David Bowie - Diamond Dogs
Doobie Brothers - Capt. & Me, Vices, Stampede, Takin' It To The Streets

Todd Rundgren - Something/Anything, Todd
Johnny Cash - San Quentin
Bad Company - Bad Company
Head East - Flat As A Pancake

I still have 2 or three copies on vinyl of Beginnings (ABB & Idlewild South), LAFE, EAP and Brothers & Sisters. I would have what I called my "taping" vinyl - only use it for taping to cassette. The other ones got pretty crispy with usage.

I had teh ol Sabbath Paranoid and Tull Aqualung, then I heard the ABB and Capricorn started doing its thing. Pretty much over for any band from across the pond to make it to my collection once Capricorn started pumping out records while I was an official teenyager.

Being a teenager in the 60's, the alblum I played the most was Highway 61 Revisited. My mother thought Bob Dylan looked like a hood on the cover, that's quite amusing looking at that photo now, he almost looks like a choirboy!

I couldn't get enough of VH1 and VH's 1984 records, in particular, but all of the VH records got a lot of play both in my house and car. Also the first 5 Zep records, but particularly I, II, and HotH. Hendrix's Electric Ladyland got a lot of play. SRV's first two records - Texas Flood and Couldn't Stand the Weather. And then Clapton was the other big one. Journeyman and then all the Cream and Derek & the Dominoes stuff. The biggest "life-changer" for me though was the first ARU release when I was in 10th or 11th grade. That one, along with my only ARU "boot" show (3-2-91 I found out 8-10 years later when I got the same show on CD-R in a trade) was always in the car tape deck.

75 graduate

The Beatles, Sabbath, Uriah Heep, Grand Funk, Chicago, Emerson lake and Palmer, David Bowie, Eric Clapton.

Mainly the first four bands for the beginning of junior high until after my sophmore year, Got a job
lifeguarding and finally had some cash to branch out and try some different stuff.

By time I finished college I had very eclectic tastes.

I didn't get into the ABB until around 76 or so hearing LAFE at an summer basement circle like on
that 70s show

Well, being a teen in the mid-80's was truly horrifying.

I gravitated towards Classic Rock.

Albums I had:

Journey 'Escape'
Missing Persons 'Spring Session M'
Scorpions 'Blackout'
Van Halen first 5
Genesis 'Abacab' 'Three Sides Live'
Clapton 'Slowhand'
Cream 'Wheels of Fire'
Led Zep first 5
The Firm
Robert Johnson 'King of ..."
Chess Blues 'Wizards of the Southside'
Vanguard's 'Vanguard Blues' comp
ABB 'Best of'
Skynyrd's 'Gold & Platinum'

probably others that I can't recall at the moment
but when i went to college in '86 my music collection exploded and
haven't looked back since ...

Afew years ago I was looking at some old albums ... some of which
I guess I hadn't messed with since the late 70s / early 80s ... cuz one
of the double album sleeves had enuff pot still caught up in the hinge
that I could've rolled up a joint had I so opted. I had obviously used
that cover at some distant time to clean and roll some dope. Wonder if
any potency at all woulda remained? .. hell ... prob was never that ganja
the first time around.

The gatefold albums that had a uncoated or laid paper finish to them worked better than the coated or gloss finished covers. With the gloss covers the seeds and the pot would slide down as you were sifting it were as with the uncoated finish, the seeds rolled down into the fold but the clean pot stayed at the top! The ABB's first album was a good one to use as was MTBs Where We All Belong. One of the worst was the Beatles White Album, everything went to the bottom!
