    The one record I thinks rocks this hard before this is the Stones I Wanna Be Your Man. That record is loud with a blistering distorted solo. It needs to be heard on the 45 for maximum impact, but that's true of The Kinks singles too. They mastered those records hot in the 60s, when that wasn't a bad thing.

    If not mentioned both "KISS"-PRINCE and THE BEATLES- "TOMORROW NEVER KNOW'S" seemed to come out of "nowhere"....they both still do for me.

    Thanks Elaterium, I've never heard that before and thoroughly enjoyed - heavy is probably the best way to describe it.

    Paul's McCartney's "Jet" clearly has no precedent.




    Other than those blatant Iommi-isms.:hide:

    NumberEight Came too late and stayed too long

    Virginia Plain. At the time it sounded as if it came from another planet.

    Bo Diddley, absolutely. There's a guy who actually invented his own genre.

    I’m surprised no one mentioned Talking Heads, especially most songs from Remain in Light.
