    Wow, narrowing it down to one is pretty tough.  I'll go with the first one that comes to mind:  The Beatles, Revolver.

    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.

    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
