Just saw that it was 50 years ago that Jimi Hendrix Are You Experienced was released. Being 61 remember it's release well. One of the great debut albums. Would like to hear what are your favorite first albums from a group or solo artist. A few of mine are; The Doors - The Doors The Cars - The Cars Lynyrd Skynyrd - Pronounced
David and David-Boomtown (unfortunately the only release) Steeley Dan-Can't Buy a Thrill Yes-Yes Jefferson Airplane-Takes Off Asia-Asia Warren Zevon-Wanted Dead or Alive Peter Gabriel-"Car Album" just to name a few, great topic Lenmc2964 we share the same age and we have seen (heard) a lot of great music through the years
Supertramp...Crime of the Century The Cranberries....Everybody Else Is doing it, Why Can't We? Lynyrd Skynyrd....Pronounced.... Led Zeppelin Queen Portishead....Dummy Patti Smith....Horses Carole King....Tapestry Chicago Transit Authority
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young....Deja Vu King Crimson....Court of the Crimson King The Smiths Babe Ruth....First Base Armageddon Blondie Jeff Beck....Truth Sade....Diamond Life George Harrison...All Things Must Pass Stevie Ray Vaughan....Texas Flood
+ 1 on Texas Flood? Very good call..... I'm a big Doors fan, so my pick was covered by the OP. Also spun The Cars LP recently, which was an early pressing, and it sounded great. Not a huge fan of the Cars, but it is a heck of a debut.
Absolutely, jafant. Hendrix is definitely the most influential guitarist of our lifetimes, by far. Whether for better or worse is a separate matter ;-) ! I just saw some pics of him on stage only a year before Are You Experience was released, playing for Wilson Pickett. And wearing a suit and tie!
1) Carole King - Writer (1970) was her debut album... not Tapestry (1971) 2) Cheap Thrills (1968) is by Big Brother and the Holding Company... not Janis Joplin. Also it's not their debut album. They had an album out in 1967 called Big Brother and the Holding Company. 3) Pet Sounds came out in May, 1966.
