i'd replace one of the last two.
i'd replace one of the last two. gbv is the more sentimental pick; southwestern ohio boy.
most of the shit I would say has already been listed! amazing. but I would add:Talking Heads- '77Funkadelic- S/T (duh -------)Can- Future DaysThe Congos- Heart of the CongosThe Stooges- Funhouse
ok. ditch GbV, and i'll add...aretha- never loved a man
The Mercury one. It's just the way they should be heard to me, with the songs all stretched out and the feedback going. My ultimate rainy day record. I'm gonna blast it right now as a matter of fact. Max's actually manages to be that rare record that is so badly recorded I can't get into it.
Aretha - Never Loved a Man
Monk - Straight no Chaser (could easily be Underground)Coltrane - Blue Train
Pet Sounds YesAretha - Never Loved a Man Hell YesSargent Peppers (My personal Beatles pick)Ornette Coleman - The shape of jazz to come (could be a trade of with change of the century though)Temptations - Cloud NineJimi - Electric Lady LandAlkaholics - Coast II Coast (hate away but this is one of my favorite hip hop lps)Wu Tang - Enter the Wu TangMonk - Straight no Chaser (could easily be Underground)Coltrane - Blue Train
in uteroI thought about unplugged. I am not really sure which of the two I like better though.
in uteroI thought about unplugged. I am not really sure which of the two I like better though. the production on in utero is retarded. i should have put it on my list.can we change to top 20?
I should start over. How about top tens that are never on anybody's top ten?
Music Has the Right to Children
If I Could Only Remember My Name
Nation of Millions
I'm Still in Love with You
Tie- The first four Black Sabbath albums
These are my favorites. I think.

the band- music from big pink
ray barretto- acid
wu tang- enter the wu tang
bob marley- natty dread
van- astral weeks
pavement- wowee zowee
guided by voices- bee thousand
yeah, i hate my list already.
Talking Heads- '77
Funkadelic- S/T (duh -------)
Can- Future Days
The Congos- Heart of the Congos
The Stooges- Funhouse
gbv is the more sentimental pick; southwestern ohio boy.
both records are great, but i think you could use another soul record on that list.
aretha- never loved a man
Aw shit. How did I forget the first Funkadelic lp? See ya Sticky Fingers.
Sticky Fingers----Let it Bleed-----Exile---Beggars are all equal to me anyway.
I seriously considered Heart of the Congos and Funhouse would be number 12 or 13.
perfect. i was trying to fit that one on my list.
Only Built for Cuban Linx
Rubber Soul (but really it could have been any Beatles album)
Low End Theory
Axis Bold As Love
Edited that shit already...
Max's? or the one on Mercury? Or is there another?
Agreed. Ocean on there is a facemelter. Even outside of recording quality, the Max's date sucks. Sans Moe Tucker! Fuck all that.

Jay Z "Blueprint"
Ohio Players "Pleasure/Pain/"
Jodeci "Diary of a Mad Band"
Stevie Wonder "Innervisions"
Tribe "Midnight Mauraders"
Slum Village "Fantastic Vol 1"
Curtis Mayfield "Curtis"

Still Standing - Soul Food is a better album, but this definately has the more "personal connection" for me.
Highway 61 Revisited
Freedom Now Suite
Up For the Down Stroke - This may be a head scratcher but I think it's the collective's most overlooked album. There are songs on here that sound like nothing else, "Presence of a Brain," "All Your Goodies Are Gone," "The Goose." I play this record more than anything else I own.
