    Best artists to start into the blues?

    Phenomenal Monk/Trane album! I jumped for joy when the recordings were discovered and released.

    Bruce Springsteen (Official Thread)

    Those magazine cover stories were an albatross around Springsteen's neck for a long time. I recall he incorporated them into the lyrics of Rosalita during his concerts at the time. I also remember my father had a Time subscription at the time and he wondered who that guy was and why on earth he...

    Tales From Topographic Oceans vs. Relayer

    Relayer is very fine but I chose Tales, strictly for The Revealing Science of God and Ritual.

    Best album of 1968

    Astral Weeks - Van Morrison With highly honorable mention to the usual suspects: Stones, Beatles, Hendrix, Velvet Underground. Miles Davis recorded a great album, Nefertitti, among his final all-acoustic albums before going electric.

    Halloween videos etc.

    ^^^ That's quite a horn section. But none of them can compare with the old cartoon monsters! :D

    Three Dog Night’s Cory Wells Dies at 74

    These guys were consistently fine in the '70s, racked up a bunch of memorable pop hits and did well by AM radio. Those songs still sound damn good.

    Halloween videos etc.

    I was glad to see Alice and Welcome to My Nightmare on the previous page. Can't resist The Monster Mash. Nostalgia. AxcM3nCsglA

    Every Little Thing - The Beatles

    Battle of 1972

    All The Young Dudes and Easy Livin'. I almost chose Lean On Me, a sentimental favorite.

    The Battle of 1971

    I chose Stairway to Heaven, Baba O'Riley and Hocus Pocus. The first two of those are overplayed but they somehow remain fresh. If i had more choices i may have picked Eighteen, Roundabout, Wild Night or Me & Bobby McGee.

    Ian Gillan VS. The Rock And Roll Hall of Fame

    This is almost too ridiculous. Like dismissing Zeppelin as one hit wonders for Whole Lotta Love. Shows the mentality of the HOF.

    Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most. - Ozzy Osbourne My god is rock n roll. It's an obscure power that can change your life. The most important part of my religion is to play guitar. - Lou Reed

    ‘The Ties That Bind: The River Collection’ 4CD/3DVD Box Set Out December 4th

    From the outtakes, i recognize the titles Roulette, Paradise by the 'C' and possibly Mary Lou. I don't know the Tempe concert but i have little doubt it's awesome.

    The Beatles: Girl vs. You're Gonna Lose That Girl

    I chose Girl. Love both songs.

    Magic Carpet Ride VS Magical Mystery Tour

    Beatles for me, though the instrumental section of the Steppenwolf song is a groovy trip.

    Deep Purple - Machine Head (1972)

    I didn't say it mattered to me, i was just pointing it out. For me, DP was among the top tier rock bands in the first half of the '70s beyond one album.

    The Stooges - I Wanna be Your Dog VS. Ted Nugent - Dog Eat Dog

    I like Ted but for me it's The Stooooooges.

    Nothin' but a Good Time vs We're Not Gonna Take It

    All the way with We're Not Gonna Take It.

    Love Is Like Oxygen or Strange Magic?

    I like both songs but my preference is Sweet, although i've never understood why getting too much love means getting too high or why there is anything wrong with that! :D

    (Favorite Song) The Eagles: Their Greatest Hits

    Not an Eagles fan and the only two songs i truly like on the list are Already Gone and Take It Easy. Two of the others - Take it to the Limit and One of these Nights - i can listen to if i have to.

    Keith Richards slams Led Zeppelin and The Who

    By my reckoning, the Stones have not put out a truly great album since Some Girls in 1978. Plenty of good ones but nothing i would remotely call consistently great on the scale of classic Stones.
