    Best guess would be Led Zeppelin IV.

    Not so much in last 20 years but overall yes.

    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
    The Band
    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
    Greatest Hits.

    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
    h.s. years:
    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.

    Perth, Australia
    The Stones' Let it Bleed and Exile
    Wilco's Being There
    Lennon's Imagine
    The Triffids' Calenture
    The Civil Wars' The Civil Wars

    all get run into the ground at my place
  11. Eleventh Earl of Mar

    Eleventh Earl of Mar Somehow got them all this far.

    New York
    Klaus Schulze - Timewind according to

    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.

    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.

    stewedandkeefed Came Ashore In The Dead Of The Night

    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.

    Sgt Pepper.
    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)

    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

    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
