What do you think were the most influential, prophetic, important albums of the ROCK N' ROLL era (and I mean in the last 60 years or so...)?? Question  TeddyR  And I am NOT asking which are your FAVORITES, but the 10 which you think have most shaped ROCK in the ROCK era.  Here's my choices, in no order, and right outta my a** as usual.   Cheers  

1) ELVIS PRESLEY  
 
2) ELVIS PRESLEY  ELVIS  
 
3) BOB DYLAN Highway 61 Revisited

4) THE BEATLES Rubber Soul
 
5) THE ROLLING STONES Now!

6) THE BEATLES  Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
 
7) THE VELVET UNDERGROUND and NICO  

8) THE STOOGES Raw Power  
 
9) BLACK SABBATH Paranoid  
 
10) BOB DYLAN Bringing It All Back Home

Most influential, rather than best?  In no particular order:

"Never Mind the Bollocks"
"Sgt. Pepper"
"Led Zeppelin I"
"Pet Sounds"
"Sweethearts of the Rodeo"
"Velvet Underground & Nico"
"Highway 61 Revisited"
"Elvis Presley"
"London Calling"
"Black Sabbath"

Have to put Chuck Berry(the godfather of Rock N Roll) somewhere on the list. Everybody from The Beatles to The Rolling Stones has covered Chuck Berry.

I might give it to Black Sabbath but Sweetheart of the Rodeo?  I have my doubts... but I guess you might have something there Wink Thumbup

I completely agree, but name an album of his, as originally released, that changed the face of Rock?  CHUCK BERRY's impact was in the day of the 45... my own choice of those ELVIS albums has to do with that form: the LP, right when things were changing.

True he was influential, but it seems to me he recorded in an era where singles were more important than albums.  I think he had 5 top 10 hits before he recorded his first album.

True, but for the life of me I couldn't think of a album still thought he deserved a mention though.

What do you mean "most successful"?  I don't think that record was financially successful at all.  It's certainly surfaced for the reason you cited, I even have a copy and I love the later THE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS, but that one eludes me.  I don't get it.

I'm no expert on the subject, but what about The Wall by Pink Floyd?

Nirvana, "Nevermind"



Whether you like Nirvana or not (I'm a fan), the stark contrast of rock albums released in the '80s to rock albums released in the '90s is pretty noticeable. The catalyst for that was the runaway success of that album.

Of course, by that logic, you'd probably have to include the Backstreet Boys or N'Sync as the catalyst for a change from alternative music to dance floor pap.

Killing Joke - Killing Joke



Released in 1980, this album woudn't be considered a big seller, but it's influence is massive in scope.

A little more recent, but I'd have to also give a nod to OK Computer by Radiohead.

Yeah, but THE ALLMAN BROTHERS sound was influence by the Byrds---so they inherit all the bands the Allman Brothers influenced.  Wink

"When Sweetheart Of The Rodeo is measured against the music of the late sixties, and judged on its merits, and its continuing influence, the LP is undeniably a masterpiece. Sweetheart of the Rodeo was an incredibly bold and daring concept LP, that was obviously doomed to commercial failure, but it provided the spark that sent American popular music searching for its roots. The LP is one of the seminal albums of the era, a profoundly important recording that changed the direction of American popular music overnight, influencing performers like Crosby, Stills, & Nash, the Grateful Dead, the Eagles, Bob Dylan, the Flying Burrito Brothers, the Rolling Stones, Poco, Pure Prairie League, Little Feat, Linda Ronstadt, the Beatles, Neil Young, and Elvis Costello. Sweetheart of the Rodeo also laid the groundwork for the Southern Rock movement of the early seventies, with groups like the Allman Brothers Band, Wet Willie, the Charlie Daniels Band, and the Marshall Tucker Band mining the rich vein of southern music tradition."--some guy

Like it or not it was an influential record.
