Greetings & welcome SHF... A overly simple thread about posting 7 singles or LPs that changed your life... Your selections can be from any genre, style or era... As the OP I will obviously begin... 1.Ray Charles / Born To Lose (1962)...I was 10 years old in 1962 & me & my Dad were at his favorite drinking establishment & this record came on the jukebox... I spent $2 of my allowance playing that song over & over & have been hooked ever since 2.Kingsmen / Louie Louie (1963)...not only the perfect Frat rock song but also the definitive mono A.M. radio single 3.Meet The Beatles (1964)...the beggining of stateside Beatlemania & boy did it sound good on my Sears Silvertone 4.Beatles / Rubber Soul (US)...the beggining of the 60s for me & millions other teens 5.The Doors s/t (1967)...remains my favorite late 60s record & Light My Fire is the hippest groove in all of rock 7.Rod Stewart / Maggie Mae (1971)...perfectly reflected my life during 1971 8.Steely Dan / Do It Again (1972)...the 2nd hippest groove in rock 9.New York Dolls in Too Much Too Soon (1974)...I dug their debut but this record highlighted the Dolls strong points so well, marvelous rock archaelogy beside stunning originals & demented Jagger frontman David Johansen & chaos personified guitarist Johhny Thunders were never better along with Killer Kane learning how to actually play the bass... A life changing moment indeed 10.The Clash s/t....the most politically charged band to come along since 1960s Country Joe & Fish & the shot in the arm 1970s rock was in bad need of for a long time... If rocknroll is about youth & energy then the Clash debut could well be the greatest RocknRoll record ever released... Every song sounds like it could literally jump through the speakers at any moment... The 1970s generation finally had a voice of its own... OK so these are my 10 life changing studio rocknroll moments... Next?
