I need your advice on The Who and Led Zeppelin

I want to know more about these legendary bands. (more than getting a Best of just knowing the hits)

I'd like to have a listen to 3 or 4 of their best albums:

The Who - what else beside Who's next ? Should I try Tommy/Quadrophenia or their non-rock opera albums ?

Led Zeppelin - not sure where to start either. I, II, III, IV ?

Quadrophenia and II.

Those are the best and most unified albums.

Led Zeppelin -

Start with IV

Then Physical Graffitti

If you like the softer/folksy side, then go to III, Houses of the Holy

If you like the harder stuff, go to II and Presence (most underrated Zep album imho)

If you like it all, go to the How the West was won live album

Finally, the bookends, I and In through the out door

For The Who, the obvious starting points are Who's Next and Quadrophenia.

For Lep Zep, IV is the obvious one, but Houses Of The Holy and III are essential, IMO.

Zep, def get How The West Was Won.. The best live album besides Kiss's Alive! (which inspired bands like Poison, Motley Crue, Skid Row, Eddie Van Halen, Eddie Veddar of Pearl Jam to start playing instruments..) and Cheap Trick: live at the Budokan Hall..

For Zep just go in order I, II, III, IV, Houses, etc. Houses is my favorite, but I liked watching the progression of the band.

I don't like the Who, so I can't help there. Sorry.

I swear Phanan and I are of one mind!


For The Who I only know Who's Next, so I'm no help there.

But I LOVE Zep! I would say "IV" then "Houses of the Holy" then "III" and then "I" or "II" and then "Physical Graffiti".

Although, there is something to be said for going in order. There is definite merit to that.

"III" is my personal fav, followed closely by "Houses of the Holy".

But, in truth, you really can't go wrong with any of the Zep mentioned so far.

Led Zeppelin

Who's Next and Live at Leeds are great albums

I would follow those with Quad and Tommy.

Please!!!!!! Pearl Jam cannot be mentioned in the same breath as Poison, Skid Row, Motley Crue or Kiss. PJ's discography is so much more diverse and interesting!

As for Zeppelin, if you want to have the best first impression, go with IV. You simply cannot go wrong! Amazing! It's in the Top 10 albums of all-time IMO. Then you could either get II (my next favorite) or just go in order, I, II, III etc.

I don't know much about the Who. Quadrophenia is the only album I have. And I like it somewhat.
