In response to a post recently about Classic Rock content, this thread is dedicated to posting a favourite song, album, single or artist. What constitutes this title is subjective..
I am starting with this guitar legend who passed some 50 years ago.

Jimí Hendrix - Little Wing.
This album in various mediums has remained with me for over 40 years, the original copy of Axis, which I bought second hand in 1975 has paw prints from one of my pet cats, who strolled across the sleeve, after just coming in from a muddy lawn. The sleeve and it's song hold great memories and is preferred by me to Electric Ladyland.
What's yours?

"The Wall" by Pink Floyd! My favorite album of all time!! Nothing more needs to be said about this album except it has helped me through some hard times and continues to til this day...

I find bits and pieces of me all over this album.

My absolute favourite album of all time, Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. Not a note out of place and perfectly produced, the album is a complete masterpiece. My go to album for almost any occasion. I listen to this album at least once a month and still haven't tired of it. There's not much I can say that hasn't been said before.

Well back in the days of when I was in school there were two albums everybody owned.

They were

So these albums take me back to that time. I love every track off Fallen but it was only years later that I listened to the other tracks. I don't know if it is the feel of nostalgia or what but these two albums hold a special place in my heart. I guess cause this was music that came out for my generation, as I spent most of my life listening to the music of my parents time. I love both eras of music.

Aladdin Sane by David Bowie. This album has everything, great songs, outrageously good playing and some wonderful straight-ahead rock ‘n roll. Mike Garson’s eccentric piano playing adds a touch of humour, making a virtue out of discord. Released in 1973 at the peak of his creativity and at the height of glam rock. Still sounds fresh today.

Gibraltar.. going one step further.. this particular LP works in so many ways-- I picked up an original RCA copy off a flea market in the 70s.. Still blast it now & then.

It seemed to work as a concept album too, my conspiratorial nature deemed it not a fashion house sign above Bowie's head but a 'journey' in the form of KWEST.
Before Bally came up with the game.
Bowie had Space Invader dovetailed into a song.

Moonage Daydream.
A timeless album, well able to rub it's shoulders with many of it's Classic competitor's.

A remarkable and pressurised follow up to Dark Side.. a weary Floyd, tired from 3 years of touring and the exhaustive roller coaster of the 1973 release;they entered Abbey Road studios with a bare concept idea. Syd Barrett's unexpected visit galvanised the meaning behind the album-one of abandonment... loss and frustration.. coupled with mental illness. Waters was particularly moved at seeing a bloated Syd with a shaved head and eyebrows. Shine On You Crazy Diamond and the flagship song Wish You Were Here are direct tributes to their old band mate.

I bunked off School on this hot Summer day and bought a cassette version and a vinyl copy, wrapped in a black plastic liner.. thus hiding all that artwork!... so after much pestering at home I bought the 'standard' white sleeve also, so as not to spoil the shrink wrap. The store guy.. promised me the shop display cardboard mobiles.. which I kept and swapped for some bootlegs years later.
1976 was the heatwave year in England.. but this late Summer offering a year previously had my Garrard turntable scorching.
Today, I still have a copy on all mediums 'cept 8 track cartridge...this album became a firm favourite when cramming for exams and sipping whisky when being' dumped'.
It sounds as new and fresh today, and the messages within it's tracks ring as true in 2020 as they did back in 1975.
One outstanding memory was the smell, for weeks many local Record Shops reaked of black plastic as racks of this album lay in wait for the listener to hear something quite remarkable.
