- THE VELVET UNDERGROUND AND NICO: THE VELVET UNDERGROUND AND NICO: 1967: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: My vote for greatest debut album ever. Every song is a classic to me. Of course at the time of release it was ignored by fans and critics alike. Andy Warhol is listed as producer and he came up with the iconic album cover.
- THE VELVET UNDERGROUND: WHITE LIGHT/WHITE HEAT: 1969: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VU’s second album- Nico is gone and this would be the last album with John Cale. A lot different from the first album- this was the most difficult of their albums to get into- the album was recorded in two days. Six songs- experimental – a lot of feedback and noise. Was a highly influential album for upcoming generations of alternative bands. Best song- Sister Ray.
- CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL: CHRONICLE VOL 1: 1976: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: A great starting point 13 a-sides and 7 b-sides. All the hits are here and in the late 60’s-early 70’s no one was better. If you like this you may want to dig into the albums. CCR’s all time best selling album. A double album- single cd. The album goes in chronological order.
