    No idea really, but I've been listening to Keith Jarrett's Survivors' Suite several times a year every year since 1982. The transitional point in the music gets me every time...
    Dragnet and Perverted by Language by The Fall never leave my MP3 player...
  2. Chris C

    Chris C Music was my first love and it will be my last!

    Three albums, each so completely different from the next that it's frightening, immediately come to mind for me.

    The Four Seasons - "The Genuine Imitation Life Gazette"
    The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - "Uncle Charlie & His Dog Teddy"
    Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim - "Self-titled"
  3. James Glennon

    Creedence Clearwater Revival - Bayou Country, never tire of listening to it. I play every bassline, cymbal crash, rhythm guitar, lead guitar in my head and sing along to every song, I actually think i can sing it better than John Fogerty at this stage.

  4. Grower of Mushrooms

    Grower of Mushrooms Omnivorous mammalian bipedal entity.

    Probably either The North Star Grassman and the Ravens by Sandy Denny, The Twelve Dreams of Dr Sardonicus by Spirit or Chameleon in the Shadow of the Night by Peter Hammill

    Er, I notice they all have very long titles.

    Pretty hard to do this accurately but probably one of:
    Juju - Siouxsie & The Banshees
    The Raven - the Stranglers
    Faith - The Cure, or
    All Those Wasted Years - Hanoi Rocks

    One Size Fits All.

    I’m not a huge Zappa fan, and my tastes have changed some since the early seventies, but I’ve never tired of this. It’s always start to finish, and it’s often once a week.
  12. My best guess today, Rubber Soul with Blood on the Tracks second.
  13. The Elephant Man

    I guess it would be
    Starland Vocal Band:
    ‘White Light White Heat’

    Grand Wazoo is close to the most played for me.

    Huntsville Texas
    “Another side of Bob Dylan”
    Not his best of course but one of the first albums of any kind that I owned. My mates and I would try to figure out the meaning of every line in every song on that record. Played it at least one a day from start to finish for 2 or 3 years.
    Close second would be “Blonde on Blonde” although it took a bit more time to play both albums from start to finish. Still love that record and actually enjoy the recent Old Crow cover.

    Actually, my real answer might be one of the mix CDs I've made through the years, which sometimes stayed in my car's CD player for weeks at a time -- not to mention the time I spent putting them together (which usually ends with at least 1-2 complete listens from start to finish). But of course those aren't official releases.

    (Is it still OK to start a sentence with "actually" as long as you're correcting yourself? :D )
