  1. One of my favorites of the classic Hardbop era of the late 50s/early 60s: Cannonball Adderley http://www.cannonball-adderley.com/
  2. A classic album from 1965 by Junior Wells & Buddy Guy - Hoodoo Man Blues
  3. No full-quotes, please https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posting_style Back to the topic with Sandy Denny and 'The North Star Grassman and The Ravens' from 1971
  4. My personal ranking of their studio albums: 1. The Doors 2. Strange Days 3. L. A. Woman 4. Morrison Hotel 5. Waiting For The Sun 6. The Soft Parade
  5. Those three clips of 'Dazed and Confused' above from 1973 underline perfectly all the weaknesses & flaws of a typical Led Zep Concert in the early seventies: stilted, overdone, artificial, uninspired performances from Mr. Page & Mr. Plant. It's really a pitty that gifted musicians like John Bonham and John Paul Jones had to play live on stage with such inadequate, synthetic, limited teammates
  6. Another great and very skilled British Band of the late 60s/early70s I have not mentioned above: Colosseum They relased three sublime studio albums (in different line-ups) plus one of the best, if not the very best Live Album of the Seventies: 'Colosseum Live' (1971) Jon Hiseman at his peak was - together with Keith Moon - one of the two best Rock Drummers of all-time in my eyes. (John Bonham is # 7 , not so bad). And Chris Farlowe (together with Captain Beefheart, Howlin' Wolf, Roger Chapman & Jim Morrison ) is one of my Top Five favorite singers (Robert Plant on
  7. Below another old & original US-Mono-First-Pressing, released September 1967. Bought 30 years ago on a flea market in Munich for just 5 DM - a real bargain
  8. Another classic and the Holy Grail of Louisiana Swamp Blues - original first US-Mono-Pressing from 1959/60 on the Excello Label
  9. Yes, of course, that's true: I've forgotten to mention the Allman Brothers Band above. Especially the original line-up and their first two studio albums plus 'Live at the Fillmore East' are classic must-haves. Duane Allman and Dickey Betts in their heydays were great guitar players, live on stage much stronger and more convincing in my opinion than a certain Mr. Page....
  10. In terms of classic Jazz and pioneering electric City Blues, the most interesting decade with many creative and groundbreaking Musicians & Bands were the 50s in my eyes: - Thelonious Monk Trio/Quartet/Quintet, and also Monk solo - Miles Davis Quintet - Howling Wolf Band - Muddy Waters Band - John Coltrane - Sonny Rollins - John Lee Hooker (his early Chess & Vee-Jay Recordings from the fifties) - Lighnin' Hopkins (his Herald recordings from the mid-fifties) 60s: - Bill Evans Trio - Cannonball Adderley Quartet & Quin
  11. Because this is the very place on earth which needs firm guidance & inspiration more than every other Online- Rock Music-Community. In this forum there are so many misleaded souls who deserve a cleaner & clearer understanding of the matter. Therefore I will continue to post recommendations, favorite Bands & albums in this section at irregular intervals....
  12. Talking about Jimmy Page, well, there are at least 60 other guitar players which I rank higher. Just a few superior names: Bert Jansch, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Blind Blake, Barbeque Bob, Lonnie Johnson, T-Bone Walker, Elmore James, Lowell Fulson, Lightnin' Hopkins, Lightnin' Slim, Freddie King, Albert King, BB King, Leslie Harvey, Davey Graham, Richard Thompson, Jorma Kaukonen, John Cipollina, Barry Melton, Mike Bloomfield, Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Dickey Betts, Duane Allman, Johnny Winter, Charlie Whitney, Jerry Garcia, Martin Carthy, Frank Zappa, Bob Mould, J Mascis, Neil Young
  13. Well, about ten years ago my record collection enfolded over 20.000 Vinyl LPs from more than 4000 different Rock Bands from the 90s back to the 50s. Including every Led Zep studio album. Meanwhile I have sold nearly 90 % of my collection and stick strictly to a limit of 3000 LPs. I've only kept those records and albums which I rank especially high and like more than many other Bands and musicians. Amongst the more popular Bands from which I have disposed and sold nearly everything are Pink Floyd, Genesis, Black Sabbath, Beatles, Deep Purple, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Iron

  16. My favorite Bob Seger-Album is still his first: the debut 'Ramblin' Gamblin' Man' from 1968 http://sfloman.com/bobseger.html

    I think their debut 'Tons of Sobs' is their strongest work. And, by the way, in my eyes it is better than every Lep Zep album. A rating which some Rock critics support: http://www.allmusic.com/album/tons-of-sobs-mw0000454393
