Thread: First Album, First Song, Side One- Favorites?

Randall - 6/12/2018 at 03:37 PM

Don't Want You No More/Not My Cross to Bear has always struck me as a notable encapsulation of the ABB's then-current talents but also provides a glimpse into the future of the band. To me, it sounds as fresh today as it did then.


Led Zep's Good Times Bad Times is another "introduction song" that seems to be a concentration of the band members talents and still sounds vital.


Any other First Album, First Song, Side One favorites?

Both of those are perfect examples. A few others that busted out of the stall in full rodeo:

Take the Highway

I Aint the One

Suite Judy Blue Eyes

Black Sabbath's first album starts with the the sounds of rain, thunder, a bell tolling, and then the song "Black Sabbath" - chills!!!

"Break On Through" was the first song on the Doors first album, also a good way to start their career.

Mountain - Mississippi Queen
Van Halen - Runnin' With the Devil

Paul Kossoff - Back Street Crawler - Tuesday Morning
Is there a hotter guitar riff intro than this one?

GREAT call on Taj Mahal’s Leavin’ Trunk!!!!


BrerRabbit - 6/13/2018 at 02:05 AM

A couple more occurred

I Can't Wait Much Longer - Trower

Golden Road (to Unlimited Devotion) - Dead

My Sunday Feeling - Tull


Stephen - 6/13/2018 at 02:08 AM

The list is endless -- my 2 favorites so far, Introduction, & Mississippi Queen
I would also add Funkadelic's Maggot Brain
Long Red, from Mountain's 1972 The Road Goes Ever On live album, comes to mind -- Corky's drums just POP outta the speakers when you put the needle in the groove.

The Shape of Things from Jeff Beck's Truth
You're Phone's off the hook, but You're Not by X on Los Angeles
Gloria by Patti Smith off of Horses

also, I can't let this one go by:

Yes there are:
Can't You Hear Me Knocking
Black Dog
Had to Cry Today

etc...

Burn...Deep Purple.


Stephen - 6/13/2018 at 04:50 PM

Rock the Nation -- Montrose

Already mentioned but megaton explosions deep into the psyche-

Doors- Break on Through
Hendrix- Purple Haze
Stones- Gimme Shelter

I'll add Sweet Jane from Lou Reed's live Rock 'n Roll Animal


JimSheridan - 6/13/2018 at 07:49 PM

Lots of amazing songs here!!

I'll nitpick a little - the original post made the question extra challenging by asking not only what were some great album-opening songs, but that they were on that band's FIRST album.

So, while I love "Gimme Shelter," it was not on the Stones' first album.

Ha, great example! I wish that I could take credit for subliminally thinking of that during my initial post, but I probably can't.

Five very valid arguments to my claim. I guess I was just expressing my love for Kossoff's style. The beauty of musical debate.

Whoops, did not notice that part. So that particular Sweet Jane I mentioned should also be excluded. Carry on (and I do not mean to include that as a qualifying song either )

21st Century Schizoid Man

Carry On qualifies. Déjà Vu was the first CSN&Y record. Good call, one of the best.


burroboy69 - 6/14/2018 at 03:26 PM

Tough to beat Chicago "Introduction". How about Bad Company "Can't Get Enough" or SRV "Lovestruck".


Bhawk - 6/14/2018 at 03:57 PM

The Stone Roses - I Wanna Be Adored


peach-head - 6/14/2018 at 04:02 PM

My bad, didn't see that it said first album...oops. Altough it could be classed as Coverdale and Hughes first Purple album.
