Maybe R.E.M.’s Fables Of The Reconstruction?
Boston - Boston
Grateful Dead - Reckoning
Steely Dan - Katy Lied
Best guess would be Led Zeppelin IV.
Not so much in last 20 years but overall yes.
Sex Pistols - Never Mind the Bollocks
Mission Impossible (coming up with "the one" since, say, 1964). I admire
those of you who have little doubt about your most traveled album.
I'd guess that my "most played" would have to be one of the following:
Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs
The Who Sell Out
Blonde on Blonde
John Wesley Harding
The Allman Brothers At Fillmore East
Bless Its Pointed Little Head
I am almost positive it would be one of the above. But I figure that there are some
"best of" collections that would rival any of the above. For instance, The Best of Booker T.
and the MGs, Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) or Through the Past Darkly
(Big Hits Vol. 2). The Kinks Greatest Hits! The Best of Otis Redding (2 LP).
Roger Miller's Golden Hits. Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy. Paul Revere & the Raiders's
Now, if we were coming up with the 45 rpm single played the most, I can easily
come up with that: Either "Don't Be Cruel" or "Blueberry Hill" (both my dad's,
but played most by me between ages of 7 to 10).
Once I began buying my own, I expect I wore out the following during my
Syndicate of Sounds's "Little Girl," Count Five's "Psychotic Reaction,"
the Hollies' "Bus Stop," The Music Machine's "Talk Talk," The Hombres's
"Let It All Hang Out," The Turtles's "You Know What I Mean,"
and Paul Revere & the Raiders's "Good Thing." Among others.
I still listen (occasionally) to Metal Machine Music (on headphones). A couple times I've cranked it up out the window when neighbors start getting loud. Magically, there's silence next door.
The Beatles- Revolver. Hands down.
The Stones' Let it Bleed and Exile
Wilco's Being There
The Triffids' Calenture
The Civil Wars' The Civil Wars
all get run into the ground at my place
Klaus Schulze - Timewind according to last.fm
Granted I slept through about half of these plays, but it was my go to sleep album. Not counting that, it's probably A Trick of the Tail.
Nope, it's definitely Trespass. 25 listens to The Knife at the bottom with the next one being Visions of Angels at 35 - this is the most consistent listening history of all the Genesis albums and I recall giving this one tons of plays around my late teen years.
The Chameleons - Script Of The Bridge
I don't know the exact answer to this question but it would be one of the following..................
Kind Of Blue
Beginnings (Allman Brothers) - Kind of a cheat as it is their first 2 albums put together but I'm a rebel so don't care!!
Out Of Time
Automatic For The People
Whats's The Story Morning Glory?
Going Blank Again (Ride)
Close to the Edge by Yes. Or Blonde on Blonde by Bob Dylan.
Peter Hammill - Chameleon in the shadow of the night
It took several listens to adjust to his (to my ears at the time) harsh singing. Then I became obsessed by the whole album.
I still think it is one of his best. Probably not as good as the Silent corner and the empty stage.
no idea, but I've listened to The La's about 30 times this week already
COMPLETE & UNBELIEVABLE THE OTIS REDDING DICTIONARY OF SOUL!!
Exile On Main Street, It is first by a wide margin, it came out when I was eleven and was in my house from release as I began to explore rock n roll, By age fourteen, the Stones were my favourite band and Exile was the record I gravitated towards the most. The album cover was part of the appeal.
Has to be. I’ve had it most of my life.
Parents bought it for me when I was 6 because my best friend had a copy and I wanted my own.
I still toss it on at least 2 or 3 times a year and lately my own son has been asking for it.
(Sticky Fingers close runner up)
It looks like Jimmy B. and I have some similar tastes although I'll have to check out that Jackson C. Frank album!
The Stooges - Fun House
The Gun Club - Fire of Love
Pink Floyd - The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
Soft Machine - Third
Sonny Sharrock - Ask The Ages
Led Zeppelin III, probably.
See my avatar xx
although cheating, Side 2 of Abbey Road I've played more than any other record.
No hyperbole, but literally thousands of spins for my avatar and its recent incarnation as Yardbirds '68
Followed closely by Piper at the Gates of Dawn
And then a distant third with only hundreds of spins, Black Monk Time
