What ONE classic rock album is an absolute necessity to own?
Wow, narrowing it down to one is pretty tough. I'll go with the first one that comes to mind: The Beatles, Revolver.
Oh too many to name:
Bob Marley and the Wailers - Exodus (reggae I know but still...)
Brian Eno - Before and After Science
Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band - Trout Mask Replica
David Bowie - Hunky Dory
David Bowie - Low
David Byrne & Brian Eno - My Life in the Bush of Ghosts
Iggy and the Stooges - Fun House
The Incredible String Band - The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter
Jethro Tull - Songs from the Wood
Jimi Hendrix - Band of Gypsys
Led Zeppelin - IV
Miles Davis - In a Silent Way (fusion I know - but still...)
Nick Drake - Pink Moon
Pink Floyd - Meddle
The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground & Nico (self-titled)
Van Morrison - Astral Weeks
Vashti Bunyan - Just Another Diamond Day
Just to name a few...
David Bowie, Diamond Dogs.
I go with just about all the stuff here, but especially, amsmoving, I would include, The Incredible String Band - 10000 Layers of the Onion. Saw them live in 196? at a little pub at Harlow Essex, The Queens Head, brilliant.
I would have to say - The Beatles White Album. It depicts everything that was affected by their music at that time, it reminds me of all the things I learned about history in that time and it reminds me of what I listened to in my childhood and shows me how far I have come in my life when it comes to Musical Maturity.
This will be one in the future that all will want to own. Listen here

It's hard to list only one, but if it's only one, it's this one:
Led Zeppelin IV, Led Zeppelin
sticky fingers rolling stones and are you experienced jimi hendrix
I agree with amsmoving but the first to come to mind is... CCR "Credence Clearwater Revival"
For me it would have to be Led Zeppelin's Physical Graffiti .
. . .. Just one? How about I give several options for an answer?
Like the guy below said, "The White Album" is a great one.
Don't forget Pink Floyd's "Dark Side Of The Moon."
I like the Zeppelin "Physical Graffiti" answer too;
. . .and don't forget about the Debut album by the band "Boston," and the album of the same name.
Led Zeppelin's self titled Debut album
Dazed and Confused, Communication Breakdown, Hell the whole album is a piece of Art.
Few albums stand the test of time as well as Badfinger's classic "Straight Up". With excellent tunes from all four of the band's members, this gem is as fresh today as it was when released in 1971. read more

I think they're the two greatest bands in history, but only one can be the best. In my opinion, the Beatles were better. They evolved so far in such a short amount of time, and so much of their music paved the way for bands that came years after them. Everyone from Lynyrd Skynyrd...

Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin?If there were a retroactive "Battle of the Bands", and the last two standing were Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, who would you choose? I have seen them both live in concert more than once each over the years. Pink Floyd has incredible showmanship and incredible...

I'll give my own answer after I see some of yours - I'm hoping, of course, that someone sees the 'overratedness' of the band I think is terribly overrated and sees the 'underratedness' of the band I think is terribly underrated.
