4)Janis Joplin-Pearl
5)Allman Brothers-Brothers & Sisters (Did I have to choose? Both are GREAT albums!)
6)The Cars
7)Led Zeppelin II
8)Nirvana Unplugged

Hey this is fun, thank for participating.

Jeff - does your mom like Janis? If not I will try to explain it to you sometime, it was more than the sound with Janis, it was the heart and soul and partly (for me) that I related to her and admired her for having guts and following her dream...sadly her dream turned into a nightmare :(

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Classic, I am having a VERY hard time choosing between Bowie and Carole King. They are so different!

Sean, out of all the Zeppelin's which is your favorite?

Hi Drew, I know your fave Zeppelin (P.G.). I think my choices are the same as yours except I choose Dire Straits.

Sean Coleman said...

It's hard to have a favorite Zep album, but it's between III and Presence. "Achilles Last Stand" is one of the best things that they ever put together.

Carole King “Tapestry”
Dire Straits - Dire Straits
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Janis Joplin - Pearl
Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker
Steely Dan - Can't Buy a Thrill
Nirvana “unplugged”

Tapestry and Can't Buy a Thrill are two of the best albums to come out of the 70s, period, so they were no brainers for me.
Janis Joplin was one of those "once in a lifetime" singers, IMO. How can you listen to her sing "Summertime" and not be moved?
While I like the Allman Brothers, The Crowes' first album is just flat out better.
Never liked INXS that much; really like the Cars.
David Gilmour > Jimi Hendrix. That's all I got to say.
Depeche Mode blows, so Nirvana was the logical choice.

Hmm.. this is getting difficult

1. Carole King - never got into Bowie that much
2. Dire Straits
3. Pink Floyd - has to be, really.
4. Janis Joplin
6. Cars - don't really like either but I'll go with the majority
7. Led Zep
8. Depeche Mode - one of the best albums ever!
