Re: Floydy's All-Time Top 1000 Favourite Albums

No.198: "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" by Elton John (1973)
Final one from Elton (I think) in the list and it had to be this tour de force of a double album from '73. In his element, Elt turned into a megastar with this release and toured the world's stages in duck feathers, 20" platforms and shades like wing mirrors. Four songs here, the final one being the highlight of the album 'Funeral For A Friend', which is in the next post.

No.197: "Different Class" by Pulp (1995)
One of the quintessential bands of the Britpop era with their biggest, most fantastic album. Jarvis Cocker is surely one of the best songwriters of any generation, witty, socially adept and with a smattering of seriously deep black humour, he has the performing skills to match. Check out the third song here as it's a true classic and a late Glastonbury national anthem, 'Sorted For E'z & Wizz'.

No.196: "The Raven" by The Stranglers (1979)
Classic Stranglers of the late 70's, The Raven was initially packaged in a hologram sleeve (wish I still had that!). The music contained was of their usual dark and mysterious style with that Dave greenfield keyboard sound to propel it along to the vocals talents of Hugh Cornwell and JJ Burnell.

No.195: "Aftermath" by The Rolling Stones (1966)
A Stones album with no official hit singles taken from it could have been commercial suicide right in the middle of The Beatles' world domination in 1966, but this album was strong enough to carry the band in its own right, especially when Chris Farlowe took 'Out Of Time' to No.1 in the UK.
Two more Stones albums still to come.

The duo’s second album with the title taken from their sublime folk single ‘Scarborough Fair’.

This is a very good album, great instrument separation and a good test for headphones.

I agree Ffosse. Any Simon & Garfunkel is best listened to through headphones.

Maybe it's already been posted but are the Small Faces on your list?
