Well, since I started the thread, I hope that you'll all allow me the privilege of making the first album selections for September.
I was born in 1970. I grew up listening to the music of my two older brothers (Led Zep, Aerosmith, and Deep Purple were all in constant rotation), so most of my early musical taste falls within the 'classic rock' vein. As I grew older, I also got into heavy metal (Iron Maiden and Metallica) and progressive rock (Yes and early Rush), but I always ended up going back to that 70s rock that has stood the test of time.
I want to introduce (or re-introduce) two essential albums from the 70s that alot of you have probably never heard in their entirety. After thinking on it for most of the night, I've opted for the following two albums:
1. Rainbow - 'Rising' (1976)
2. Supertramp - 'Breakfast in America' (1979)
I hope that you will enjoy them both. Front to back, these two albums are fantastic (you older guys should already know this). The reviews really speak for themselves. I'll start the thread for it now
