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

Love Donovan, "A Gift from a Flower to a Garden" is my favourite but anything of his is good.
Interesting and enjoyable thread Floydy.

Hi Tessa, thanks for joining in. There's something for everyone in here, or will be by it's finished (probably in 3-4 month's time!).
Yes, Donovan is a true flower child. I'll definitely agree with that☺

When legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore temporarily vacated Deep Purple, his next project was Rainbow. A more concise, rock-pop version of his former band, lead vocals on Down To Earth were supplied by ex-Marbles singer Graham Bonnet. My favourite track on this album was the single 'All Night Long', but perhaps the best-known is this slice of heavy rock perfection:
Also one of my favourites Floydy.

No.947: "Dancing For Mental Health" by Will Powers (1983)


A very strange oddity this one. It's a kind of self-help record for people with shyness insecurities. The record is by no means a low budget affair though, quite the contrary as it features contributions from such stars as Paul McCartney, Sting, Meat Loaf, Steve Winwood, and many other top acts performing in between narratives by some kind of psychiatrist! The first single, featured here, has vocals by Carly Simon. The music is catchy and dance-y a la Talking Heads. A quirky record indeed.

No.946: "Silver Apples" by Silver Apples (1968)


If you think electronic music was "invented" by the likes of Kraftwerk in the 1970's you are very much mistaken and should hear this album and it's follow-up "Contact". Minimalist sounds and noodlings protrude over some bizarre lyrics to produce a quite remarkable album.

No.945: "Aftermath Of The Lowdown" by Richie Sambora (2012)


The Bon Jovi guitarist's third solo album which he does between his main band's outings. I actually prefer Sambora's vocals to those of Jon Bon Jovi and this music is more blues-orientated.

No.944: "Sign O The Times" by Prince (1987)


Arguably the much missed purple pixie's greatest album, perhaps after Purple Rain. Full of intricate dance beats, soul, pop, rock, rap, funk, you name it. Quite revolutionary in fact.

No.943: "Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds" (2011)
The "cleverer one" from Oasis with his first solo album.

No.942: "Out Of Nothing" by Embrace (2004)
Indie-rock band who released some very good anthemic tracks since the late 1990's

No.941: "Barbed Wire Sandwich" by Black Cat Bones (1969)
Free's doomed guitarist with his other band. If you thought Free made some classic blues, have a listen to this stripped-down album. This track "Four Women" is a slow, brooding masterpiece:
