Dude, who cares? You can get those songs anywhere, but Pet Sounds as a whole is a great album, with or without those hits. Pet Sounds is an important album, as it was one of the major influences on Paul McCartney before the Beatles made Sgt. Peppers.

Very, very good choices, everyone.

Zoot, you can't go wrong with anything that's been listed so far, they're amazing, classic albums. If you want to try something a little different though, a little less common, some good, 60's poppy fun, then look up stuff by Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Grass Roots, and Tommy James and the Shondells. There are various greatest hits packages out there by each of these bands.

Yeah I've heard about that.

Well, thanks for the suggestions everyone. I do own some 60s albums, guys... Beatles/Floyd/Zep/Doors and a Dylan self-made hits collection and same thing with the Stones. But now I can put more albums on my wishlist.

Btw, BoMac.... as I type this I'm in the process of acquiring Pet Sounds from a kind hearted soul here.

AYX has the big singles on it. Axis is really trippy, probably the most consistent. But Ladyland is the fucking epic, the BIG statement from a career cut way too short. I think if you want to check out his crowning achievement, warts and all, you're best served by getting that one.

This is a tough one, just picking 10. I'll keep it to one album per artist:

1. Beatles - Abbey Road (1969)


2. The Kinks - Village Green Preservation Society (1968)


3. The Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed (1969)


4. Led Zeppelin - II (1969)


5. The Byrds - Greatest Hits (1967)


6. Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited (1965)


7. The Moody Blues - Days Of Future Passed (1967)


8. King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King (1969)


9. The Zombies - Odessey And Oracle (1968)


10. The Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat (1968)

Does White Light/white Heat sound better than VU&N, and is it better?? Cos that album sounds like a dog.

I have the Essential Bob Dylan, and sadly apart from a bunch of about 10 or so tracks I can't say I'm that keen on it, though I spotted today 61 Revisited for $10, so I'll grab that next time I'm there.


I don't any many 60s albums.... any recommendations for Doors, jimi, etc?

For Jimi, see Laz' post.

For Doors, the best place to start is at the top! Their self titled debut. I also like Morrisson Hotel. I've heard that Strange Days is good but I only know a bunch of songs on there.. whatever's on the Best Ofs. Actually, you can't go wrong with a Best Of to start with!

It sounds WORSE. Much, much, worse. But it's an experience, Danny. Nico has some songs that are total shit, mixed with some classics, while White Light is sheer mayhem, with no real breaks, and it coheres very well. It's also incredibly influential, though probably less so than Nico. I rank it considerably higher, though I may be in the minority.

PS: The Doors are horribly overrated.

Neil Young - Everybody knows this is nowhere
Sly & The Family Stone - Stand
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
The Flying Burrito Brothers - The Gilded Palace of Sin

Lemme see... Many of my favourites have already been mentioned. And they're probably all famous albums, but for a very good reason. But I figure that more mentions hopefully convince some to actually pick up those records.

(one album per artist, BTW)

The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited
The Beatles - Rubber Soul
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland
The Doors - The Doors
The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground & Nico
The Rolling Stones - Beggar's Banquet
Aretha Franklin - I Never Loved A Man
Otis Redding - Otis Blue: Otis Sings Soul
Love - Forever Changes

Hey Marty, you prefer Rubber Soul to their later albums?
