  1. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    My attempt at 1970:

    Miles Davis - Bitches Brew
    Tim Buckley - Lorca
    Nico - Desertshore
    Alice Coltrane - Ptah, the El Daoud
    Nick Drake - Bryter Layter
    Freddie Hubbard - Red Clay
    Tim Buckley -...
  2. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    The first Queen I heard was Queen's Greatest Hits and then Classic Queen (as they existed in they existed in the early 90s). I listened to them enough and knew those songs so well it was weird when I...
  3. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    I have been having a hard time ranking albums and such, especially when...
  4. Re: Lets collectively, drunkenly, come to a consensus about the 70s

    Also Jazz.

    Miles Davis - Bitches Brew, Jack Johnson. Maybe Agharta and On The Corner.
    Don Cherry - Orient, Actions (with Penderecki)
    Clifford Thornton - The Panther and the Lash
    Freddie Hubbard...

    I love the hell out of some Skynyrd, though I like the earlier sessions and various other demos better than their standard stuff. "Four Walls of Raiford" is probably my favorite song by them. Though...
