Long Cool Woman (in a Black Dress) — Hollies
Andreas Vollenweider – Behind the Gardens
I remember the first time I ever heard him. It was in a book store in Sedona, AZ and it was the background music. Both my husband and myself are musicians and we stopped dead and asked what and who that was. Electric harp? Be still my beating heart…
Van Halen I
Peter Tosh – Legalize It
Marillion’s “Clutching At Straws.”
Robin Trower-Bridge Of Sighs or Pink Floyd-Wish You Were Here.

It’s probably a tie: Who’s Next–The Who, or Tommy–The Who
I dunno, a bunch of great ones have been already mentioned.
Floyd, Steely Dan, ELO, Doobie Bros, James Taylor, Stones, Allman Bros, Clapton, Charlie Daniels, the Eagles and lately, the Zac Brown Band.

I`ve Always Been Crazy – Waylon Jennings
Bruce Springsteen – “Darkness on the Edge of Town”
Chuck U Farley

Stairway to heaven – Led Zepelin
Aja – Steely Dan

Only because I’m listening since a very young boy.
House of Kell
Hands down, Dark Side of the Moon! (Wish You Were Here)
Close seconds are Allman Bro’s, Bob Seger, anything Eagles, Credence, alot of Motown (Chi-Lites, Marvin Gaye, Spinners, 4 Tops, etc), Boston (I), REO, Pink Floyd from Meddle to The Wall, guys, I still have turntables and so many albums I had to build a shelf system to hold them all (last count was something over 900 classic rock and classical albums from Johnny Cash to Zep to Beethoven and Bach, and some bagpipe/ celtic types jams and everything and alsmost anything in between!
Went to a garage sale a few weeks back and bought an entire Johnny Cash collection, 28 albums, still sealed and wrapped in plastic, for $1 apiece (I about shit myself when she told me that)…my life is good!
charlie daniels-take this job and shove it
Magical Mystery Tour
Lynyrd Skynyrd Second Helping
Warren Zevon’s Excitable Boy
You can sing along to every song on the album.
C’mon, not one vote for anything by Lynyrd Skynyrd, no mention of anything Tommy Bolin, James Marshall Hendrix, or at the very least Ronnie Montrose’s self titled album. Are you kidding me, you would think that Pink Floyd was the only band in the world, hell I would bet that half the people who listen to them today have never even heard of Adam Heart Mother. Frank Zappa nailed it best in Don”t Eat That Yellow Snow by penning the phrase “Srickly Commercial”.
Pat Metheny – American Garage
I’m with jeckelmyhyde and Chuck U Farley… Allman Brothers Live at the Filmore East
A trio of songs with a common thread – a female awesomely melodic primal screams :
Gig in the Sky, Floyd
Aria, Yanni Dare to Dream
O Mare E Tu, Andrea Bocelli Sogno
I haven’t heard Ronnie Montrose for over 30 years.
Who can’t forget this classic:
Meet the Beatles
Wore it out when I was a kid, My favorite cut was “I Saw her Standing There” I learned how to count to from one to fah from this song
Ah one, two, three, FAH! ….
Oh she was just seventeen
You know what I mean
Actually, I was only seven at the time, so I didn’t know what that meant
also Aerosmith toys in the attic, or Hair of the dog Nazereth
ELO- A New World Record
Floyd – Dark Side of The Moon
@jethro, and chances are Sammy Hager would have never become the CaboWabo man without kicking off his career with Ronnie Montrose
Actually to do this fairly I’d have to do this decade by decade.
In the 50s I listened to The Great Pretender by The Platters about a gillion times.
Robert Fripp – Exposure
My second most played album would be Revolver by the Beatles. I’d put the album on the parents Hi-Fi and start bopping around the living room like a maniac. Until one day, while bopping to the tune “Got to Get You Into My Life” I stomped on a broken off toothpick that was imbedded in the shag carpet and it went all the way thru my foot! Swear to God, it’s the truth
Undaunted (this paragraph, on the other hand, is total bullshit)I hopped down the hallway to the kitchen where my parents and sisters were having lunch pointed to the toothpick in my foot and sang out “Got to get this out of my foot!” At which point everybody, especially my mother, burst into uproarious laughter. And that’s the moment I realized I had a real talent for song parody
fIREHOSE – fROM oHIO
The very first Blood, Sweat and Tears album (and the only one) with Al Kooper-”Child is Father to the Man”.
I’ve worn out the vinyl and the Eight Track of “Morning Glory” on it.
Anything Beatles: being militant Sgt. Peppers side II, being racist White Abum side II, being a dog lover…Hey Bulldog, which is to by best guess my most played song on vinyl…I think.
At number three: Joe Walsh’s ‘But Seriously Folks’
At number two: Golden Earring’s ‘Moontan’
And, coming in at number one: Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’
96 Tears by Question Mark and the Mysterians
Bolling Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano w/ Rampal.
OK, Jeckel, here’s another: Led Zeppelin–Zoso.
(Or however you write it in normal letters.)
I did go through a Bad Company phase at about age 13, and did move out of it although to this day I still love the title track. And whoever said Revolver, OK, yeah, that got some pretty heavy wear at my house.
I would have worn out Terrapin except my brother came in and took the disc away from me. I was so ballistic then but I can remember now how he just walked in silently, and there was an air of “You have got to be kidding me” about him. Quietly he took it and walked out, and I never saw it again.
The Paul Weller bootleg, “Groove a Little”.
ACDC Back in Black
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road- Elton John
No contest. The greatest single album ever recorded:
AC/DC-High Voltage for album. Hollies – Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress for song, I’ll never get enough of that opening guitar riff, it’s perfection.
FreeMan - Chick-fil-A today
Very hard to pick any one LP
But I would say Rush Different Stages until R30 came out.
Eric Clapton CrossRoads
Dave Matthew Band Big Whiskey and the Gru Grux King
Boston (1976)–each track a classic.
Iron maiden – piece of mind
Followed by ELP brain salad surgery and Genesis lamb lies down, Renaissance Scheherazade, Robin Trower-BOS
Oh and SteelyDan -every one of them, even the new and solo stuff.
How can such a gang of ruffians make such sonic bliss?
Pink Floyd The Wall and Led Zeppelin’s Physical Graffiti
Listening to Atom Heart Mother now, Obscured by Clouds in que.
Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes
Michael Jackson – Greatest hits.
Anything by Air Supply.
Malcom McLaren – Fans
Another age revealing poll. What’s a record?
Probably a tie for me, many albums by Rush in my youth but now, I listen to a lot of 80′s and a lot of Caedmon’s Call.
If you dont know them, you’re missing out. Great music….
Butthole Surfers-Electric Larry Land
The Cramps-Bad Music for Bad People
Scratch Electric Larry Land. Listened to “Hairway to Steven” a lot more.
Genesis and almost anything with Phil Collins…though I didn’t like Pete Gabriel at all!!! Not even a little bit!
And how the hell could I have not listed Bad Co, Skynard, Elton, ELO, Eddie Money, Heart, 38. Special, and so many others?
Fur: This isn’t even close a fair and balanced question, there are simply far too many great tunes and albums out there to chose just one, bro!
The Wall – Pink Floyd
@kvn: Brother, you really need to think about getting back on the meds, ok? Butt Hole Surfers, really? I’d rather have a root canal without anesthetic….
Obama is really stupid
Ocean by Bola Sete
Many others, many times, but this one the most.
Conservative hater: Michael Jackson? Really?!?!?! Michael the child molesting pedophile jackson???
That could very well explain the name, huh? Had you ever gotten around to listening to some thing at least decent, you might not have become what you became!
The Jackson 5 were alright wehn I was a kid, but usually kids grow up….libs NEVER do because they can’t!
But maybe barry-care will issue a pill for that, too, huh?
Makism: LOL….that guitarist maybe had a bit too much coffee….GREAT tune and better concert, though! Have seen them a few times…
The Smiths – Meat is Murder
Love and Rockets – Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven
Joy Division – Unknown Pleasures
@kvn – great bands!
The Kenny Rankin Album
Mark-Almond’s To the Heart
The perfect mood for a warm bath after a hot Carolina day with a cool breeze and a cold glass of white in a very low light.
Albums listened to most:
Atom Heart Mother
Hendrix: Electric Ladyland
Zepplin: 1 and 2
…but the most incredible album experience I’ve ever had was out in the desert all night under the stars smoking weed and listening to all Rush albums pre 1985.
Czar of Defenestration
Hendrix – Electric Ladyland
Shuggie Otis – Purple
Lightnin’ Hopkins – the album with “Ain’t It Crazy”
For me it was anything by AC/DC (Back In Black in particular). And I will be the first on here to say Def Leppard Pyromania and Hysteria both.
Eagles – Life in the Fast Lane
Jimmy Buffett 4 CD box set.
Boats, Beaches, Bars, and Ballads.
“We will pass through the American patrols, past their sonar nets, and lay off their largest city, and listen to their rock and roll… while we conduct missile drills.”
- Captain Marko Ramius, The Hunt for Red October
Honest Politicians 4 Sale
Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys.
But if you’re counting CDs:
Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble
Nora Jones – Come Away With Me
[Yeah, Texas has the most to offer...]
I could make a very long list of seconds with a lot of varity. Classical, Blues, Rock, Country, Christian, Mariachi, Folk, Native American …..
But then again, maybe the most played would be The Tubes. w/ White Punks On Dope.
Kinky Friedman – They Aint Makin Jews Like Jesus Anymore
Toss up: Aqualung, Sgt. Pepper, Abbey Road, Led Zeppelin (first).
I Walk the Line / Hey Porter on a Sun 45 my Dad bought in 1955.
AC/DC – Back in Black
Motorhead- Another Perfect Day
Iron Maiden- The Number of the Beast
“White punks on DOPE DOPE DOPE dope dope dope…”
But seriously, over a long, ever-changing time period my most played albums were The White Album, Abbey Road, Jesus Christ Superstar (the first original), Tommy, Aqualung, Stand Up, Thick As A Brick, Live At Leeds, DSOTMoon, Meddle, Wish You Were Here, Chicago 4, 5, & 7, Tarkus, Brain Salad Surgery, Blow By Blow (J. Beck), Eldorado (E.L.O.), Tales From Topographic Oceans, Relayer, Olias Of Sunhillow, Quadrophenia, Minstrel In The Gallery, and then old rock pretty much died and I got into Gordon Bok and dead white men.
Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon
Flirting with disaster ………..
Mystery Tramps Real Eyes
Listened a lot while cruising, cars didn’t have record players but I remember the 8-Track tapes:
*Rosie & the Originals — Angel Baby
*Motown Lowrider shit
*Jimi Hendrix experience
No way to tell which one got the most play, we played them all until they spooled out and jammed up the tape deck. Then we had to remove the deck, take the lid off, and pull the tape out with needle nose pliers. Cut off the bad part and splice the tape back together with nail polish. Tapes usually got traded if any good songs got spliced out.
Ah, the memories!
Emerson, Lake, and Palmer
King Crimson…anything by Greg Lake.
Oh, and I have a bootleg vinyl of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon….It’s called The coming of the Comet: In search of Kihoutek.
Friggin’ awesome….Listening to them recite the Lord’s Prayer…these dudes are seriously FUCKED UP.
George Jones – 50 Years of Hits
Nobody beats The Possum!
Even though Revolver was perhaps the least publicized of their albums, I had this feeling at the time that it was their best
Of course I also had a feeling once during that time that something was very wrong with my foot — but I never blamed Revolver for that
What a Fool Believes. Doobies.
Well I didn’t know we could list more than one.
ANY Gin Blossom.
AC/DC – Powerage
Aerosmith – Featuring “Dream On”
Rush – Hemispheres
Yes – Fragile
Pink Floyd – Animals
August 6th, 2012
Yes, Close to the Edge – the whole album.
Played most? In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.
Black Crowes – Hard to Handle; Don Henley – Last Worthless Evening; I can Only Imagine – Mercy Me
I will also admit that currently I am listening to Clair de Lune by the Philadephia Orchestra conducted by Wolfgang Sawallich, A LOT!
How about you bfh,what’s your’s?
Neil Young – Tonight’s the Night
What TyCoon said.
Wish You Were Here
Thick as a Brick
Boobie the Rocket Dog
Charles Munch. “Gaité Parisienne” – Offenbach/Rosenthal.
Age 23 recovering from a nasty accident and decided to explore my mother’s eclectic record collection. Saw the flying skirts on the cover of that LP cover and played it. Came across the Infernal Galop from Orphée aux Enfers. Finally, a “classical” piece I recognized!
Wore the record out and bought a new copy.
This was my introduction to a lifelong love of classical music and a thirty-year love affair with opera.

I have close to three thousand so this is a hard choice. AC-DC Powerage has seen the most parties & is “Well Worn” hands down a superb party record that never lets ya down. A Trooper. Anything by Iron Maiden is second, (I have 300+ Iron Maiden LP’s.)
