Is Back In Black from that era? I do have that one on CD but kinda lost interest over the years and never ripped it to itunes. Not a fan of Sex Pistols from the one or two listens I gave Never Mind The Bollocks. Aerosmith, I guess I need Rocks. Black Sabbath I love but only have their hits CD, We Sold Our Soul. The others you mentioned I don't know but have heard the names.

Whatever is on his black and red hits CD. And whatever you guys put in DI lists. That's it. I don't know. Some Springsteen songs I really love and some bore me with the extremely verbose lyrics.

lolol sorry I just now noticed that the official album only has 10 songs! My copy seems to have like 7 bonus tracks. No wonder I thought it was too long.

I'm listening to this album again right now.

You need my two favorite records from 1975:
Blood on the Tracks - Bob Dylan
Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen

You don't have to like them, but a record collection can't be taken seriously without them.

The Ramones' first four albums are a lot of fun. Some might even call them essential.

Oh geez! I'm gonna be broke before I even finish buying all these albums!

Thanks for posting such a detailed list, ElMel. Yeah I looked at RYM too. So these albums are the ones YOU think are essential, correct? Not what RYM thinks. Damn, there are too many essential albums!

Indeed you will. Unless you utilize yer interwebz. (Or buy used CDs, which I'm getting into and fully support).

My choices were a mixture of RYM's taste, my own, and what's so absurdly popular that you should at least give it a chance to see what you think. I feel it's a very good, diverse primer.

Oh I do utilize the interwebz... quite a bit. But I dunno... nothing like holding the physical CD in your hand with liner notes and all. Cannot compare! Used CDs =
