If I were you, I'd take Music From Big Pink or VU's self-titled to go along with that.
I say VU's self-titled for what it's worth

Oh lemonmelonmemon... I wanted to ask you before but forgot... do you actually have all those albums you recommended? The other question I won't ask you is how much of those did you purchase.

Nope. I am familiar with the music of all of the artists I recommended, so I know the albums are worth a listen, but I don't "own" all of them. However, 85% of them I have on CD-R or digital.

And few I have bought, yes.

Just wanted to comment on an older post...

As important as these albums are, I already have most of the songs from both albums on the 2 disc Lennon collection titled Working Class Hero, which came out a few years back. So I'm not gonna bother with these albums now when there are more important ones to get.

Now that I'm expecting Cream, The Who and The Moody Blues in the mail and will probably get VU's self titled with that extra CD from BMG, I need to let all this music sink in.

My next move after this that I'm really looking forward to (if I still have any money left) is the Buffalo Springfield/CSNY/Neil Young route.

ETA: In the midst of all this, I'm already covering a significant part of Billy Joel's best albums!

Oh geez! There's too many Neil Young albums!

Maybe I should start with his single disc Greatest Hits. But I'll end up not getting anything else.

Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and After The Gold Rush are where you should start. The former if you want to rock out, the latter if you don't.

You had never heard that album? Now that surprises me.

I've never heard a Neil Young album. Should I? Has any of his stuff ever been remastered?

His greatest hits set was.

Like I said to Zoots, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere and After The Gold Rush are where you start. EKTIN rocks harder, but ATGR has a bunch of essential Neil Young tracks.

With as much as possible, I try to get remasters on older stuff, so I think I'll start with the greatest hits.

Yeah. You've got about half of those two albums, I suppose.
