I much preferred the next Talk Talk album, personally
I’ll argue this belongs: Thelonious Himself : solo piano by Thelonious Monk
1. A great solo album
2. Recorded in April, 1957
3. Recorded just before the Thelonious Monk Quartet six month residency at the Five Spot in June 1957 which include John Coltrane, Wilbur Ware and Shadow Wilson.
4. That the members of that quartet were together at the time of the recording is evidenced by the appearance of John Coltrane and Wilbur Ware on Monk’s Mood the Last track on the solo album.
Jerry Garcia's first album is absolutely classic.
I love the homespun qualities, the very personal songs, the vibe, and the home studio ethos.
Also - Maybe I’m Amazed, my favorite McCartney song.
If Talk Talk were still together when he recorded his album, they might have been expected to have released something. Maybe before he died. And the solo album would have qualified for this thread. But they weren't together. So it doesn't.
Came to post this one. Left satisfied.
It's always gonna be Keith and Talk Is Cheap and Main Offender for me.
Mark Hollis - Mark Hollis
KISS Paul Stanley
Should be in every 70's rock fan's collection
Big soft spot for this one:
Syd Barrett- The Madcap Laughs
I love this one, but Syd was not part of the Floyd anymore when the album was recorded.
Chris is one of my favourites, but this is my no 1:
Probably my favourite album under the KISS banner. Close to perfection.
Apostrophe society shuts down because 'ignorance has won'
That one falls afoul of the rules since VDGG was broken up when it was recorded. In fact, I believe the success of the sessions for it contributed to them getting back together the next year. But
qualifies and is a good choice.
Garcia, Jerry Garcia, 1971
Jerry on guitars, bass and keyboards and Bill Kreutzmann behind the drum kit. Marvelous album.
I'm going for Christian Vander's Tristan et Yseult soundtrack, myself
It's too much to ask for people posting in a thread to read the premise of it as laid out in the first post.
Not just my favorite solo album of all time, but arguably my favorite album period...
Phil Collins' first album, whichever one it is.
