Man, what a tasty list of music so far, I have a few to add :
Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood
Springsteen - Greeting from Asbury Park NJ
U2 - Boy
Aerosmith - Aerosmith
All of these bands went on to put out some great music but I always go back to the early stuff to get their raw, honest sound. Aerosmith - what happened to them? Good lord ... I wouldnt be surprised if the next release is elevator music. I believe Zep was probably the best example Nothing ever sounded like Zeppelin I to me. Sure, there were glimmers but I can play some of the blues tracks like I cant quit you baby or Babe Im gonna leave you and hear real blues power with a hard rock edge. Man, it was brilliant work.
