I love all that kind of stuff, Nom. I have three CDs which came out in the 90's called "Beyond Nashville" which are full of all that kind of thing, but they also feature more recent material too. Check them out if you can bud

No.40: “Tubular Bells” by Mike Oldfield (1973)
Wrote and composed at age 17, recorded and played 42 different instruments at aged 20. Incredible isn’t it? What other child prodigy can you name who could accomplish a feat like this in music?
Despite all the inevitable rehashes of the album in all it’s weird and wonderful forms, the original Tubular Bells is a masterpiece. No doubt about it.

100% agree with your comments. I never got on with side 2 though - but side 1 makes up for it and is legendary.

Hotel California - utter classic and the guitar solo is a sod to play (I gave up trying...)

That version of Stairway To Heaven you posted is the best imo.
Another all time classic. I can actually play most of that, but not as good as Jimmy.

There's so much film available for Led Zeppelin too, it's scary. When I always ask on various music forums why there is almost zero footage of Pink Floyd from the 70's, nobody seems to know why not. After Pompeii in '71, there's only sketchy bits and bobs. There are live CDs on bootleg but scant little DVD material and nothing officially released ever.
Anyway, we may be coming to that problem soon and I'll have to figure out how to get around it

The main selling point of Hotel California, great as it is, was the title song probably.

The top 20 will begin later today. What do you think will be in these last few positions? I'm not saying yay or nay.
Do you want another full A-Z before we start first?
