I know he didn't write the song, but the fact that Townshend left "Heaven and Hell" (among other things) off the original release suggests that maybe he ain't as smart as people make him out to be. When I picked up the reissue years ago and heard that performance for the first time, I was floored.

If I remember correctly Live At Leeds was edited with just all the Who's rockers at the time to follow up what a lot of people thought was the lame Tommy album. Check also the version of Heaven And Hell on Live At Isle Of White. (And I think it's an Entwhistle tune.) But yeah, Live At Leeds is a great album.

The Isle of Wight DVD rules...probably my favorite (most personally inspiring) "live" performance film ever.

baker, your almost is still almost!

Exile On Main Street
Beggar's Banquet
Let it Bleed
Sticky Fingers

the remainder is pretty close to your order.... for my listening pleasure, it was that late 60s heroin period where the Stones really got the blues part of their R&B influence right and mixed it up right w/ the rock n roll. for me, if i had to choose but one Rock n Roll Album or just one Stones album, it would be Exile

Blonde on Blonde.

one of the best albums ever made YES... but rock? i like to think it was the first album of a new genre electrified folk country rock

then again... genre schmenre
good records are good records.
trust me, its in my personal pantheon together w/ the VU debut!

There must be because I believe they showed a bit of it in the Who documentary that was on tv the other night.
Posted: Nov 6, 2007 10:30 pm

I wrote one of the songs on that record. So, I wrote a song on the best rock and roll record of all time woo hoo.
Posted: Nov 6, 2007 10:48 pm

Saw a bit of a Jagger interview the other day and he thought that Exile had a "few good tunes on it".

Anyway, I vote for Funhouse.
Posted: Nov 6, 2007 11:07 pm
 
jagger's vocal performance on "shine a light" was his best ever. he will never match the tenderness and soul of the verse that has the lyric "angels beating all their wings in time..."

Funhouse

Good album, but best rock lp ever?
Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult & Deep Purple all had multiple better albums.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 2:26 am
 
Whats Going On Moving and most of the songs are relevant to whats happening in America now.

Pet Sounds and Sunflower The Beach Boys at their best

Best Stones LP

Englands Newest Hit Makers
12x5
The Rolling Stones Now
Out of Our Heads
Aftermath
Beggers Banquet
Let It Bleed
Sticky Fingers
Exile On Main Street

Headquarters The Monkees and the best album of 1967

All three Buffalo Springfield records

London Calling
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 2:30 am
 
i can't say what's best or anything but if i only had a copy of "you're living all over me" as the sole record i could listen to forever i'd be ok with that.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 4:08 am
 
whatever the black and whites lp turns out to be like

1. Heartbreakers - L.A.M.F.
2. Rolling Stones - Exile On Main St.
3. " - Beggars Banquet
4. New York Dolls- S/T
5. Real Kids- S/T
6. GG Allin and The Jabbers - What is it was shall always be.
7. Iggy and The Stooges- Raw Power
8. The Stooges- Funhouse
9.Yardbirds - Greatest Hits
10. The Humpers - My Machine
11. The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers
12.Bob Dylan - Highway 61

blah blah blah
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 4:50 am
 
You know, for the Stones, I'd probably have to go w/Sticky Fingers 'cause I think "Can't You Hear My Knockin'" trumps them all.

Shit, this is a good question, though. Probably impossible to answer.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 8:13 am

Pet Sounds and Sunflower The Beach Boys at their best

Sunflower is a very underrated record. "All I Wanna Do" is godhead.

Headquarters The Monkees and the best album of 1967

You are insane, bro.

All three Buffalo Springfield records

First two are great.

Don't know that any of the above are the "best ever," but they're good ones. I'd have to go with the first Moby Grape over all of 'em.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 2:34 pm
 
As far as Stones go, I'm definitely an Aftermath/Between the Buttons kinda guy, but it's hard to go wrong with any of the ones mentioned above. And I dug that three disc singles collection out a couple of weeks ago. "Sad Day". . .whoa.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 3:03 pm
 
I was always more of a More Of The Monkees guy myself. She has the most brutal tambourine playing ever. Headquarters is pretty good (probably better than Rubber Soul or whatever The Beatles put out that year but maybe not as good as The Byrds?). The first one is good too but I need Stepping Stone and She for pure Monkees brutality. And Headquarters better than VU & NIco? I don't think so.

Ahem, ever heard The Yardbirds' 2120 S Michigan recorderings, meestah?

Props to the fella who voted for the Real Kids' first LP, it's a smasher...

Depends on wot you term as rock... izzat as in rock'n'roll, a general description of everything from Louis Armstrong's Hot Five to the latest git on the block, or RAWK!?

I likes Forever Changes, Village Green, The Who Sell Out and Funhouse, meself... altho' I gotta say that Between the Buttons gets my vote as far as the Stones go...
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 5:03 pm
 
Oh, and all three 'Elevators studio LPs, in reverse order...
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 5:07 pm
 
the Quadrajets - Pay the Deuce .

I wrote one of the songs on that record. So, I wrote a song on the best rock and roll record of all time woo hoo.


Maaan, the QUADRAJETS need to do a REUNION SHOW here in JACKSON!!!
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 5:56 pm
 
can't we rule out "greatest hits" collections?

aren't we talking lp's here, i.e., one entire concept type-thing?

Similarly, a "live" lp is not really there either, just a recorded show.

I've got to go with "High Time" or "Revolver" mebbe
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 6:10 pm
 
Lamps/Haunted George split mini mini lp!!!!!
Exile is the best Stones lp for me.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 6:56 pm
 
hmmmm...no particular order...ill throw these out there...

BOC "Tyranny and Mutation"
Alice Cooper "Love it to Death"
MC5 "Back in the USA" (yeah, I said it)
Motorhead "Overkill"

hmmm, not sure, i dont think so...but i'm gonna check that shit out!
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 8:20 pm
 
Back In The USA blows (yeah, I said it). Ace Of Spades over Overkill (though it's still a great album). What about Vincibus Eruptum by Blue Cheer? I listened to LAMF the other day and it's still pretty rulin (just don't cover any of the songs on your album). Bored of The Stones and Funhouse.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 8:30 pm
 
I like Back in the USA and I'm throwing Slayed out there for consideration.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 8:40 pm
 
BOC "Tyranny and Mutation"

Great, but Secret Treaties might be better.

What about Vincibus Eruptum by Blue Cheer

Outsideinside probably has better songs but better tone on Vincebus Eruptum (could be the bong water in the grooves).
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 8:47 pm
 
LAMF kinda bores me now...good record an all but I rarely feel like hearing it...ever.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 8:50 pm

I think I agree.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 9:16 pm
 
LAMF kinda bores me now...good record an all but I rarely feel like hearing it...ever.

same here. loved and love that record, but you can definitely wear it out. saints' first two and ivy green s/t have a lot more staying power for me.

best rock lp denomination gives short shrift to early rocknrollers for sure, as it was a singles game. have to give jerry lee a nod for the star club lp, though. may be unbeatable as rock and roooooollll goes (or is this just a rock category?!)
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 9:23 pm
 
I forgot about Priest's Trifecta.
Posted: Nov 7, 2007 10:04 pm | Edited by: Rumpleforeskin
 
"Killer"- Alice Cooper is my choice for studio album tied with "Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust".
Posted: Nov 8, 2007 1:13 am
 
I likes Forever Changes

Thats a great one...

1. 1st B.O.C. lp... "last days of may"...
2. Mc5 - Back in the USA.. why do some many of you guys hate it... cause it's "too clean"....??? I am sorry if everything that I listen to doesnt sound like it was recorded on a early 80's boombox.
Posted: Nov 8, 2007 2:03 am
 
I got all my records and my record player yesterday (although still no winter clothes or books... but a good start) and I am pretty surprised at all the Rolling Stones records I have.

Also, I have a Live at Leeds LP that has a folder in it with copies of rental agreements for instruments, a court order for stolen instruments, a tour date list, a letter denying a record deal, etc., etc. Has anyone seen this before? I've had it for years, but kinda forgot about it for a while. It could have come with special issues, or maybe someones personal collection?? Dunno.
Posted: Nov 8, 2007 2:55 am
 
L.A.M.F.
Posted: Nov 8, 2007 3:40 am
 
Probably "Nador" - Les Variations.
Posted: Nov 8, 2007 10:18 am
 
"saints' first two" - man, whattabout Prehistoric Sounds? That's a KILLER! Kinda like after you've gorn all over Psychedelic Sounds and Easter Everywhere, then REALLY start digging Bull Of The Woods!

Last nite I wuz digging The Replacements' Let It Be, and that Jerry Lee Star Club LP, coincidentally, which is awesome!
Posted: Nov 8, 2007 5:47 pm
 
Right Now by Pussy Galore? Philosophy Of The World by The Shaggs?
Posted: Nov 8, 2007 6:30 pm
 
Right Now by Pussy Galore
Excellent choice. Of course, there's always Exile on Main St. by Pussy Galore.

no, just a first pressing. Worth upwards of maybe $25 bucks, mint. Still cool though...some have "live at leeds" on the poster and some have "live at the marquee" on the poster that came with the LP, dont know what the difference is on that however.

I too was kinda taken back on how many Stones LPs I have...17...didnt know I had that many

Best live LP.

How many crosstops did swallow, huff or inject before that set?

First Modern Lovers album? White Light/White Heat or 69 Live? The Fugs first album? Twin Infinitives by Royal Trux or the first Harry Pussy LP? The Great 28 by Chuck Berry or Sun Sessions by Elvis?
Posted: Nov 8, 2007 7:17 pm

This should be seriously considered.

The Fugs first album?

Jerry Lee at the Star Club
Here are the Sonics

Killer. Sounds like Mudhoney 20 years before. The other day I was drinking at 6 PM at a bar w/ my buddy and the bartender put on Arthur. I wuz in heaven. And very soon thereafter, drunk off my ass.

on a related note I love how you can barely hear the songs at times on "Live at Kelvin Hall" from all the girls screaming....I never thought of the Kinks as a band 60s girls had orgasms to.....

The Stones weren't even the best Rock and Roll band with Brian Jones. Their records leave a lot to be desired in the desperation department.
Posted: Nov 28, 2007 10:40 pm
 
I just realized that you & Carducci are the only people more anti-Anglo than me. I could accept an arguement that the Stones were the best rnr band ever, but I don't know if they'd be my answer.
Posted: Nov 28, 2007 11:25 pm
 
In the live context, I'd argue the New York Dolls were as good as any other band, based on that "All Dolled up" DVD. In fact, they are my vote for no. 1.
Posted: Nov 28, 2007 11:32 pm
 
"All Dolled up" DVD.

Man, I gotta get that one too. The Dolls rule!
Posted: Nov 28, 2007 11:56 pm
 
Well, for some reason at the time I always equated the Dolls with the Stones.

Glad to say my opinion has changed since then. The DVD is coo' and in conjunction with the "Hard Night's Day" CD, we can all witness to Dolls' glory

However, without the MC5 and the Stooges, NY Dolls wouldn't have existed.

Ergo, MC5 = Greatest rock 'n roll band ever
Posted: Nov 29, 2007 12:01 am
 
MC5 = Greatest rock 'n roll band ever

No. One album (High Time) does not equate to greatest Rock and Roll band ever.( Though it's a great album.)Fred Sonic Smith rules!
Posted: Nov 29, 2007 12:05 am
 
I'll have to go with Raw Power. That record is so intense I can't even make it all the way through sometimes and it's only 35 minutes. And they left off the jazz.
Posted: Nov 29, 2007 12:12 am
 
But doesn't this "without so and so, then so and so wouldn't exist" argument mean that only Chuck Berry can be the answer?
Posted: Nov 29, 2007 1:08 am
 
Chuck Berry can be the answer

no, 'cause we're still working on it.

that said, "Let it Rock" was Sonic's favorite song, so we're still at
MC5 = Best

despite Jon Landau's sabotage
Posted: Nov 29, 2007 1:22 pm
 
SRB makes all metal sound utterly redundant!
Posted: Nov 29, 2007 3:29 pm
 
Sabbath ain't redundant. Blue Cheer ain't redundant. Stop it with that crap. Never got the Dolls thing so much until I started seeing th' videos, man were they something live. MC5, kinda the same thing.
Posted: Nov 29, 2007 3:35 pm
 
no one has mentioned the first ramones album yet??? not going too much out on a limb, but i'd have to say that one
Posted: Nov 29, 2007 5:00 pm | Edited by: Vinyl Ritchie
 
Im takng back my previous nominations....listened to the Sonics' debut all the way through for the first time in many many years(original mono LP kicks the shit outta the stereo) and there aint a bum track on it...so "Here Are The Sonics" is the greatest rock LP ever...whole thing smokes.
Posted: Nov 30, 2007 12:19 am
 
Thanks Dead City Rebel! You are too cool!
