Monday October 17, 2005
# 10 – THE BEATLES – Rubber Soul
# 9 – THE BEATLES – Revolver
# 8 – THE CLASH – London Calling
# 7 – U2 – The Joshua Tree
# 6 – THE BEATLES – The Beatles (White Album)
# 5 – BOB DYLAN – Blood On The Tracks
# 4 – BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN – Born To Run
# 3 – PINK FLOYD – Dark Side Of The Moon
# 2 – THE BEATLES – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
# 1 - THE BEATLES - Abbey Road!!!!!!!!
Wow! The Beatles listed 5 of the final 10! Cool!
Personally, Led Zepplin's Physical Graffiti or Allman Brothers' Live at the Fillmore could replace Bob Dylan on this list.
And if I hadf it my way, Sgt. Pepper would be ahead of Abbey Road by 1 place.
Why? Sgt. Pepper was the Beatles opus to a Victorian English propriety that was being displaced in the UK by the "mod" scene and a sea change took England in a totally different direction (not unlike the hippies here).
Anybody else agree/disagree with this list?
