Never heard that one...

General discussion about anything your heart desires

Never heard that one...

Postby NotSteven » 15 Dec 2012, 00:05

Reading the discussion about Frampton Comes Alive on another thread made me think of all the famous (or, if you prefer, classic) albums I have never heard. Come on, own up - what are your uncharted musical lands...

Here's a couple of albums everyone else except me seems to have heard -

Peter Frampton, Frampton Comes Alive
Fleetwood Mac, Rumours
U2, The Joshua Tree
Serious dreamers always can afford the dreaming

5 Days on and no reply at all, i have allso a little trouble with this topic because when is a album a classic one, if 10 million people has bought it, and if you don't like it and other people do can it be a classic for the other ones but not for you.
I have for example an album of BeBop Deluxe ( Bill Nelson ) "Sunburst Finish " i guess not a lot of people do know this but for me it is a classic one.

I have only heard the 3 hits off of the U2 Joshua Tree album. Not a big fan of them. The Bebop Deluxe- Sunburst Finish album is definitely interesting...I haven't listened to it in quite some time, though. Love the cover also.

Nice to hear some else who knows this album "Crying to the Sky " is one of the finest songs, i have all the albums of B B Deluxe, Red Noise and now i will buy other solo albums off Bill Nelson.
An amazing guitarplayer.

I guess it's difficult indeed, what's a classic one...? maybe an album which 'everyone' has (or had) at home in his collection?. I mean even the boys and girls
who loved disco (back in the days i was at high-school ;) ) had a copy of f.i. ELO's Out of the blue or Meatloaf's Bat out of Hell or Peter Frampton's Comes alive or Jeff Wayne's War of the worlds or Fleetwood Mac's Rumours at home... but no-one had Genesis' The Lamb or Yes' Tales or ELP's Welcome back, Camel's Snowgoose or even Supertramp's Crime of the century - that was just only me... :mrgreen:

So maybe a 'real classic' can be described as an album which has succeeded in crossing (musical)borders and was generally loved by all 'musiclovers' worldwide :?: Thinking about it another two pop up in my mind : Bruce Springsteen's Born in the USA and Paul Simon's Graceland... anyway hopefully
you're all getting the point now of what i am trying to say... :? :roll:

Power to Believe MUST!!! well .... the first 2 tracks i think ;)
Zappa ... is special as you can listen to the "same" songs on different releases...
so the question would just be, are you into zappa anyhow?

I have never fully immersed myself in Zappa although We're Only In It For The Money is one of my all-time favorite albums!!!

I've got Apostrophe and Joe's Garage already so I'll be checking out One Size Fits All tonight. I've heard that's a good one.

I'm not a huge fusion guy but I have MO's Birds Of Fire, WR's Heavy Weather and RTF's Romantic Warrior. And that's about it. I did play with Jaco once when I was in college in Florida. He was a beast!!!

Yes.
Well not really, but Blonde on Blonde is simply a masterpiece. Surprise element: while it was one of the first Dylan albums I've heard, it was one of the last I've liked. Current status: my favorite Dylan release 8-) . Rust never sleeps is good, but I think 'On the beach', 'Tonight's the night' and 'Afther the Goldrush' are better. Hot Rats is also probably the best release of Zappa.

Sandwiched between Larks' Tongues in Aspic and Red, Starless and Bible Black has been getting overlooked for decades. It's every bit the equal of its more famous sisters. But that's just me!!! The point being: that three album run is as good as anything anyone has ever produced.

But look at it this way: Bill Bruford from 1971-1974.

The Yes Album
Fragile
Close To The Edge
Larks' Tongues in Aspic
Starless and Bible Black
Red

Are you kidding me???

I would add to that wonderful list:
UK (1978)
Feels Good to Me (1978)
One of a Kind (1979)

8-)

i need that Dylan album ...

I listened to Animals and SaBB but i didnt grab me, but remember some .... maybe im more into Animals then i know because DOGS & SHEEP is included in my Pink Floyd compilation .... well ... but im a big big fan of WYWH and MEDDLE ... and of course TDSOTM .... so this can happen ;)

still have to get into SaBB once more .... its somewhere in my car ...

the three hardest things i remember where it needed a long time till it grabbed me was
1. Genesis "Lamb lies down on broadway" (long long time ago, and before i listened to Yes, Rush and Marillion)
2. Tomas Bodin "Pinup Guru" (well mostly ME & LIZ, fusion power trio masterpiece) (at the beginning of my 2nd wave fusion exploration)
3. Zappa (not that long ago)
4. TFKs "Monsters and Men" (last year!)
:D

btw
this mentioned TOP 50 is also a thing to be updated....
maybe we can do a little thread for a kind of new "TOP 50 classics from 1990-2014", what do you think?
Or 196x-2014? but this will be hard as we have to eliminate some stuff then ... like Animals or SaBB due to the max.
most TOP 100 BEST PROG LISTS lists only albums up to 1975 at the first 50 places or so.
Maybe it would be interesting to leave out the classics.
in the end we have 2 databases which both are around 20 years and we maybe can do a nice comparison then.

I've been working on the best of 2010's quite a while now (songs and albums) 8-) I'm all ears for these options!

I've had a hard time with that one too! Now it's on top with Selling England for me! BTW: the next Dylan Bootleg Series will be the Basement Tapes complete, might be interesting.

First albums I've heard from those two were 'Trespass' and 'Tormato'. Not horrible as a starting point I think.

Trepass - a classic album indeed! Tormato, on the other hand, was the start of the decline unfortunately. It has it's moments but after the magnificent Going For The One it was a big disappointment for many of us. Even the cover's crap. (Mind you, the cover for GFTO is crap too!) :D

now i know how they came up with gnosis ;)

"still the biggest gnosis i had was with genesis"

btw nice live version of LOOKING FOR SOMEONE (Genesis, Trespass, 1970 ;) )
http://vimeo.com/10811179

this song is so good, still tops 95% of all other songs ever composed!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this richness of arrangement, harmonics .... this bass, those tones and melodys .... and this contrast between heavy and soft, still HI-def!!!! .... and this went on for ca 6-7 years, with nearly 100% consistency .... just btw :D

:P

People have even given me them and i have them on my IPod, just never felt a need to listen to those bands. I'm so unaware of these bands i can't even spell their names correctly.

i've liked Rush since i was about 15 (a long time ago now), got married and had kids, couldn't afford much music. Got a dream theater album (awake), then transatlantic (SMPTe) then to spocks (V) and the flower kings (Flower Power). Kids got older and i wasn't as skint so can afford more music - just missed Yes and Genesis (or whatever they are called) on the journey. I've heard the odd song here and there, but never listened to an album the whole way through.

Yeah, dude. If you like Spock's Beard you should be ready for Yes and/or Genesis. (My two favorite bands of all time.)
