Your Answer Is…

Greetings Treasonites!

So many of us simply adore music – all kinds of music from all over the musical map. And for many of us, the music we love the most is often associated with our formative years – particularly our teenage years.

Additionally, in the era of vinyl, tapes and CDs, complete albums were the way so many of us got to know our favorites artists.

So this week, we ask: “What album had the biggest impact on you as a teenager?”

Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon, I had a lot of teenage angst going on 😁

Steven Atkins

Eagles hotel California, Pink Floyd breathe

Rick Kendrick

There were so many studio albums, from so many bands, that hit me hard when I was a teenager. But two that captivated me because of the amount of bands on the one and the amount of guest musicians on the other were: Woodstock and Concert For Bangladesh.

Gary Marullo

Beatles 65

Cheryl

Two actually. Black Sabbath – Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, and Jeff Beck – Cause We Ended As Lovers. One from early teens and one from a couple of years later. LOL

Curtis J White

(Hanging my head in shame) None. Didn’t get into the album thing until I was in my mid-twenties – and re-entered it in my 50’s. Individual songs, yes, but not albums. (I’ll see myself out now.)

Bob Seabock

As a young teenager, it was the Yes “Fragile” vinyl, followed by the soundtrack to “A Clockwork Orange”. When I was 19, it would be “Grand Illusion”, by Styx, and Ted Nugent’s “Cat Scratch Fever”. I was all over the place with the music genres I loved then, and still am.

Michael Schuster

Along with many other great releases at the time – Zeppelin, Cream, etc, the ones that had the most impact were the ones that were more fusion, not 3 chord hits. Nothing wrong there – great, fun music, but I was drawn into this type of stuff in my early teens and had an impact on how I played and looked at music.
King Crimson – In the Court of the Crimson King
Miles Davis at Fillmore
Still have both LP’s

Lisa

Live Bullet -Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band

Hands down! My friends and I played it so much I had to replace it. Then had to replace it again.

Katie

Tommy by the Who. Another favorite was Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.

Ronald Swanson

Not an album per se, but Pink Floyd The Wall (movie) had a massive impact on me and has influenced most of my musical choices since.

Dana

All man Brothers Band Live at Fillmore East

Mike Montgomery

Led Zeppelin Iii

Mark Sheriff

Joe Jackson look Sharp

Cindy

Creedence Clearwater-Cosmo’s Factory

Rick

Released on June 1st 1967, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, the band’s eighth album became the soundtrack, to me, and so many other young Hippies. It was the summer of LOVE but its appeal is timeless. What’s the smell!!!

Donald Joseph Tibbetts

Meet the Beatles!!! YAHOO

Corrie

Lots of favorites – I was a big fan of Yes, Styx, Boston, and Kansas, but Night at the Opera blew my mind with the sheer musical variety of styles and how Queen used the recording studio itself as an instrument – all the overdubs, analog effects… No synths! My childhood soundtrack was the Beatles, CSNY, Peter Paul & Mary, Simon & Garfunkle, and the Kingston Trio, so I loved all that lush harmony. Bought the first four albums and then every new one up until The Game. Sigh. Yes, Fat Bottomed Girls. But synths. 🙁

No major updates on the boys of Elm Treason this week or the band in general. However, Bobby’s eldest boy, Aaron, celebrated his 16th birthday this past week.

elm treason song of the week

“LIVING FOR LIVING (SCENES FROM THE PLAYGROUND)” from the album “DAYS OF REACTION”

Seeing as this past week saw Bobby’s eldest son celebrate birthday number 16, we bring you this tune from our debut album, “Living for Living (Scenes From the Playground).”

The lyrics were conceived while Bobby watched his son in the playground. Capturing the scenes of his boy doing what kids do on a playground, the song came together fairly quickly. Progressive, melodic and featuring one of Bobby’s most beautiful guitar solos ever (the song’s opening solo), this one has become a fan favorite.

Andy adds the song’s second solo (one of Bobby’s favorites of Andy’s).

Here we go ’round.

FIVE SONGS THAT DON’T APPEAR ON THE ALBUM OF THE SAME NAME

Here are five examples – among many – of songs that don’t appear on the album that bares the same name.

“Waiting For the Sun” – Doors (The song would eventually appear on “Morrison Hotel”)

“Houses of the Holy” – Led Zeppelin (The song would eventually appear on “Physical Graffiti”)

“Sheer Heart Attack” – Queen (The song would eventually appear on “News of the World”)

“On Through the Night” – Def Leppard (The song would eventually appear on “High ‘n’ Dry”)

“Brain Salad Surgery” – Emerson, Lake and Palmer (The song would eventually appear on “Works Volume 2”)
