The most famous first: (were there any before this?)
The second most famous was definitely earlier:
Misterioso - Thelonious Monk - 1958
And let's not forget this:
Leonard Nimoy Presents Mr. Spock's Music from Outer Space (1967)
James Iha: Let It Come Down
The Black Keys: Brothers
Benny Carter in Paris.
Jimmy Smith: Hobo Flats
Aretha Franklin: Oh Me Oh My - Aretha Live in Philly, 1972
The Psychedelic Sounds Of The 13th Floor Elevators ~ 1966
