What are your favourite debut albums?

Recommended Posts

This is harder to answer than it looks. Some debut albums I never got because the 2nd or 3rd album is when the band or artist broke out.

For example, I think of The YES Album as their debut, but actually it is their 3rd release.

The 3 that come to mind immediately I did buy are 1.Crosby, Stills, & Nash, 2. Led Zeppelin and 3. Carole King, Writer.
