Suggest one obsure album we all should hear
Glad to be of help @artemus_5 ! You make a couple of great points, including the matter of a band being entertaining. NRBQ's albums contain a fair amount of humor, but live is a whole 'nother matter. They are by far the most fun band I've seen liv...

Better Records White Hot Stampers: Now the Story Can Be Told!
Every LP is of course the end product of a number of separate manufacturing steps. And the term "master tape" has a couple of equally valid definitions: since the introduction of first the 3-track machine---then the 4-track, 8-track, 16-track, etc... 
Groundbreaking albums. Any genre.
- Elvis Presley: s/t debut. He and his band mixed black R & B with white Hillbilly, creating Rockabilly and all the Rock ’n’ Roll that followed. Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and others followed Presley’s lead.- Bob Dylan: Blonde...

The sole album (s/t, CD only) by super-group The Notorious Cherry Bombs. Headed by Rodney Crowell and Vince Gill, with assistance from some of the best studio musicians in Nashville (including producer Tony Brown, Hank DeVito, Richard Bennett, and...

@edcyn, small world: I too lived in the Valley for years. Sherman Oaks, Burbank, and Glendale, mostly. I then bought a house up in the Foothills above Glendale, in Tujunga. A lot of musicians live up there.Van Dyke’s Song Cycle is an acquired tast... 
I wish these albums were available on vinyl
All of Iris Dement’s albums. I have a white label promo copy of her The Way I Should album, sent to radio stations only, never available on LP commercially. All her output has been on CD only, that alone necessitating and justifying ownership of a...

I don’t know that I would call Sincerely by The Dwight Twilley Band an obscure album (it isn’t amongst "my type"), but I sure concur with the opinion of @buckroe. It is in my Top 10 albums of all-time list, an incredible melding of 1950’s Rock ’n’...

@edcyn beat me to Song Cycle by Van Dyke Parks, an album unlike any other you have heard, I guarantee you. For another dose of this near-genius, listen to the Smile boxset. Smile was Van Dyke and Brian Wilson’s never completed concept album, the t...

Free Life by Dan Wilson. Dan is a singer/songwriter, but not in the 1970's sense. He has had a number of his songs recorded by others (including The Dixie Chicks, from whom I learned of him), often becoming hit records. I understand he is also a m...
