Hey all,
Each week, I'm going to recommend a rock-n-roll album which every serious rock music fan should listen to at least once in their life. Some may be lost classics, and others will be albums which everyone recognizes.
I won't describe the music, as this would be too time consuming, but I will try to post a picture of the album cover, and note the date which the album was released. The purpose of this is to give you all some albums to look out for when you're hunting down records at used record stores, garage sales, flea markets, thrift stores, used vinyl web sites, etc. Feel free to post your comments about each of the albums!

My first recommendation is the 1967 album Surrealistic Pillow by Jefferson Airplane:

Sold the mono issued two months ago...
I did archive it to CD.
Cover has changed a bit.
Fun Stuff!

Is this the most over-rated album ever? Well, one of the top ten? Sure it has White Rabbit and Somebody to Love, but what else on this record makes it so 'great?'

For the Airplane, I'd much rather have After Bathing at Baxters or Volunteers...

Thanks for your comments, Chaz. In my mind, Jefferson Airplane never put out a bad album from their debut right through Volunteers. Heck, even Bark isn't bad. Very Happy

Yeah, a cool idea, Uncle Hippie.

Grace Slick was actually pretty good looking back then. Who'd a thunk it?

... And while you're at it, why not tell us which version(s) of these LPs to look out for? That way we'll know how to score the valuable goods at garage sales, etc. For instance, I don't know the difference between a $100 copy of any Beatles record and a $2 version of the same Beatles record.

Thanks, guys. Metro, that's a good idea about the versions. If I list the original labels, it will mostly be for the US versions, though, since I don't have any foreign price guides. Also, any corrections are appreciated.

With Surrealistic Pillow, the original RCA label labels were black with nipper centered on top. Watch out for late 70s/80s black labels where nipper is to the side. Those were reissues. Wink

I've often thought that a forum for posting pics and or titles of "sleeper"
lps that have a cult following or undocumented high values would be
outstanding for those of us who search the bins unaware. I'm not
talking about what is on one's turntable; but rather, what lps sell
for $ that are worth $$$ in some circles. We cannot know everything
about all types of records and most dealers hold these things close to the
vest. I had a funk - dj collector offer to trade for my Power of Zeus with a
list of valuable funk albums to look for.

Oh, by the way - the answer was NO!
