@muletrane Yes I really was pleased with the first Govt Mule album. Mother Earth probably my favorite but all good songs. 

Took me a bit of time to warm up to that album because since Warren is in the band I was expecting an Allman-related album, not what I would consider kind of hard rock. But I agree, it is a great album.

We All Have To Go Back To Mother Earth!! Allen Woody, Gregg Allman, Butch Trucks, Duane Allman, Berry Oakley have already gone back. I'm 74 so I'm getting closer by the day! 

My favorite track from the first Gov't Mule album. But they are all good. 

Jaimoe named the band. And in the beginning Warren said they were going for a Creme, Jimi Hendrix thing. The power trio thing they thought in 1994 was a lost approach to rock and roll.

Some great choices. Tommy Bolin's "Teaser" sure is a winner! Who's Next and Sticky Fingers too.

I'll throw in Genesis' "Selling England by the Pound," the Jeff Beck Group first album and "Blow by Blow," and Wilco's "Summerteeth."

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here

 

What about The Wall?

I like the Wall but don’t love it, I’d rather play Meddle, Animals & DSOTM

I don't see Van Morrison's Moondance on here.  That album was practically issued to everyone in my family.  It's perfect, and the 5.1 Blu Ray audio of it in the deluxe reissue is the greatest album I own in terms of sound quality.

 

Also, Tom Petty Wildflowers

The Black Crowes "Croweology"

I was actually gonna say Shake Your Money Maker. Croweology is awesome but I would consider that a greatest hits album. I think Luther D is on it from NMAS on a song or two. Splitting hairs perhaps.

Yes Moondance by Van Morrison is a great album start to finish. 

I bought three of Les Dudek's albums in the mid 1970's because I noticed his name playing second lead guitar on Ramblin' Man and acoustic guitar on Jessica on Brothers and Sisters. His three Columbia albums I thought were good on all tracks.  They didn't sell much and are largely forgotten now.  Here is one track I like a lot.

 

And here is Les more recently playing Ramblin'Man and bragging about playing with Dickey on the song.

 

Dickey playing Ramblin'Man. I remember seeing this on TV in 1984 and at the beginning of Dickey's ending solo his necktie flops down over his guitar and he finally had to stop and move it off the strings so he can play. He looks pissed but recovers and let's go with a blistering finish to the solo.

Some great Choices by you all.  There were a lot that were right there, but one or two songs were kind"meh".

This is all subjective to ones ears, so I am sure with mine, some will think   "What is this guy hearing?!?!?"

Since its an ABB site ...

ABB 1st release

The Michael Schenker Group-MSG(2nd release)

Christ Whitley-Dirt Floor

Bob Dylan-Love and Theft

Krokus-Headhunter

Jethro Tull-Catfish Rising

AC/DC-Let There Be Rock

Led Zeppelin-Physical Graffiti

Van Halen II

These probably dont qualify below since they are either a compilation or live, but love them none the less...

Tommy Bolin live at ebbets field 1974

Rainbow Finyl Vinyl

Stephen Stills-Just Roll Tape

CSN-Demos

An Evening with the Allman Brothers Band: First Set

CSNY Four Way Street

Oh man, we had a firepit night last week and I played that "Ebbets Field 1974" disc for a pal who had never heard it. He was absolutely blown away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good! Glad to see people getting turned on to that. I think I was blown away when I first heard it too. I remember REALLY intently listening to this the whole way thorough when I first got it. So impressed song to song what he was doing. I know this is subjective and ones opinion , but I feel this is one of the best live recordings of a guitar player showcasing his skills on pretty much every song. I cant recall since then being that taken by an entire performance from a guitarist.

"You Know You Know" is such a great choice for an opener.

The Marshall Tucker Band

And even though it is a live album I will mention the Gregg Allman Tour and suggest it and LAFE should be considered as both contain quite a bit of material that was not previously released on a studio album. That AND they are also REALLY GREAT albums.

Quite a bit, yes but I just meant an actual studio album. Plus you probably remember that discussion has been had about live albums.  Blackie confirmed that Live Bullet by Bob Seger is the greatest live album ever. 😎

This is hard because there are albums I really want to list, but must admit one song I could skip.  Layla is that album.  Out of respect I won't say the song I don't prefer.  I am 1000% on all the other songs.  

I should add to my list:

Santana (first)

Who's Next

The Who was a tough one, I love Tommy, Leed's, but Next is thru and thru great.

If you like to venture into different genres from time to time, this album from 1961 by Flatt and Scruggs titled Foggy Mountain Banjo has all good tracks. But they are instrumental. Real smooth 5 string banjo playing from Earl Scruggs.
