Your Answer Is…

Hi, Treasonites!

Sometimes , our installments of “YOUR ANSWER IS” are incredibly easy. No convoluted descriptions or controversial subject matter. No long-winded explanations. 

The graphic itself asks the question better than we ever could.

So, someone asks you: “What is an album you would recommend everyone listen to once in their lifetime?”

Your answer is:

There are so many! One is virtually impossible. The obvious one from me is Pink Floyd DSOTM, although I would insist on The Wall as well. Others will hit the rest of the usual suspects so, for a few off the beaten path choices I offer Willie Nelson The Red Haired Stranger, Tony Carey Some Tough City, Billy Joel 52nd Street, and Foreigner Double Vision. Just in case no mentions it, Jimi Hendrix Are You Experienced?

Dave J

Sgt Peppers

Rick Kendrick

Trick Question. I could name 100 plus……. but I will list the very 1st album that hit me as an album that flows as a one continual song type of flow of an album filled with Great Songs……..The Beatles/Abbey Road……..And In The End. The Love You Take, Is Equal To The Love You Make.

John Ezell

Who’s Next, Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs, Dave Mason Alone Together

Tom

Audience in their self titled album is great top to bottom.

Cliff Aldrich

Rush-2112 and that’s all I am going to say about that.

Jim

The White Album.

Will

“The Snow Goose” Camel

Patricia Rose

Are you hinting that we all leave convoluted, long-winded and controversial essays on here?!!!! 😂🤣🤣🤣
Missundaztood by Pink! Funky and fun

Dana

Who’s Next by the Who (of course)

Rich B

Turnstiles, Billy Joel

Michael Patterson

Kind of Blue…

Andrew Purcell

So Many but I reckon Revolver by The Beatles for starters, especially the new remix version….

Shelley Briley

Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon

BOBBY

I’m sure most everyone has heard Beatles, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and all the other gargantuan bands. So I’m gonna recommend something done by a group that i think should be recognized by everyone as the pioneers that they were. The A wave. And that is the 1972 album Fanny Hill , by the all female rock band Fanny. I would even throw in the album before Charity Ball ( 1971) in 1970 an all female rock band was unheard of. And these gals could rock just as hard as the guys. They were no joke. Jean Millington was probably the first female Asian lead guitarist ever (that i know of). The whole band consists of outstanding musicians, with incredible singing ability all around; especially with their intricate harmonies, and diversified mixture of genres in their music. They could do it all. These ladies opened the doors for so many all-female rock bands.
So that’s my pick.
Fanny : Fanny Hill
Go strap on your headphones and give it a whirl. You won’t be disappointed

Peggy McChesney

Back in Black. Or Jimi Hendrix ‘s Are You Experienced

Peggy McChesney

AC/DC’S “Back in Black” or Jimi Hendrix’s Are You Experienced “

Paul Jones

This choice probably changes every week, but right now it’s Marty Stuarts Altitude. Gonna see him next week’

Katie

The first thing that popped into my mind – “Golden Throats: The Great Celebrity Sing Off”. Listen to it once, have a good laugh, then burn it.

Anthony Rutigliano

I’m gonna go a bit outside of the box and not take one of the obvious all timers. I’ll say Joe Jackson’s Look Sharp. Fantastic songs and just for the bass playing of Graham Maby alone is well worth the listen.

John Ezell

I love that album. Great choice. I have a vinyl copy that is on two 10″ records. I also have a copy of his 2nd album I’m the Man that is on a box of 7″ records. We were big fans of his.

BOBBY

the metal band Manowar also has a self titled song

Ellen Hakala

That is such a hard one, so many to choose from the big music bin of all sorts…Any Stony Plain record anniversary cd or any Alligator record anniversary cd’s…Plus Thornbird a great cd from one of the ladies from the Waifs

Jerry

Overnight Sensation by Zappa

LARRY R CRAWFORD

Way Too many to mention But, I Listened to Ted Nugent’s Weekend Warriors Album the other night and WOW what a great Album!! Very well orchestrated songs!!

Mark Sheriff

Such a tough question one of my Favs would be Zappa’s Joes Garage All acts

Edward Ciurczak
