      Reflects my years growing up playing in rock bands in the Gainesville Fl. area back in the 60's and 70's with some 80's added. Not to mention I saw all of these artist with the exception of Coltrane. Elvis was making a movie " Follow That Dream " in my home town of Ocala of course I was 9 but I got to see him.

      Oops....ok, edited my post.

    Here's why I chose what I did:

    Beatles '65 - First album I ever bought and got me started. It's special for that reason.
    Meddle - It has "Echoes"....'nuff said!
    What's Going On - I knew the first time I heard this in full it was special. This may be my all-time fave progressive album.
    Time Out - This may have been the first record I ever heard. It was my father's favourite and got me to appreciate and love music.
    l'heptade - The brilliant "magnum opus" from the equally brilliant Harmonium frontman Serge Fiori. It flows with such ease and beauty one dreams along with it.
    Harvest - Wasn't a true NY fan yet, but this album corrected that.
    Tales of Mystery and Imagination - A poet's stories set to music with layered soundscapes and climaxes. I knew I wanted more!
    Dire Straits - Oh my God....who are these guys? I found another guitar player and band to sink my teeth into.
    Crime of the Century - Out of the gate and for the first few minutes I thought this was a new Pink Floyd album. I really did. Heard School, bought the LP and the rest is history.
    Folk Singer - My fave album from my fave Blues performer. That's all really.
    Rickie Lee Jones - Her voice, her quirky jazz delivery and great writing. In my Top 5.
    A Trick of the Tail - Could have picked TLLDOB, but Tails has "Ripples" and "Squonk".

      Neil Young - After the Goldrush -
      Beatles - Sgt. Peppers -
      The Who - Tommy -
      Black Sabbath - Paranoid -
      Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon -
      Jimi Hendrix - The Jimi Hendrix Experience
      Leo Kottke - 6 and 12 String Music - Although not exactly, it was more watching him play at the Neuman Center at St. Cloud State College in an audience primarily composed of guitar players.
      J.D. Blackfoot - The Song of Crazy Horse - for the title song only as social commentary
      Crack the Sky - Safety in Numbers - because it's brilliant

      Plenty of albums that I like, but not a full dozen I find as significant.

        I think these lists say a lot about our age. I was in high school during the British invasion and surf music craze and in college when classic rock happened.

        Joe Walsh is still one of my favorite guitarists. He came out with a new solo album in 2012 called "Analog Man" that is pretty good, similar to his other solo efforts.

          Graceland would be in my next 12 for sure. Arguably one of the best albums of the 1980s.

        Lot's of great albums. The Leonard Cohen is fantastic and flied below many people's radar.

        I have a few Philip Glass albums and you make me want to drag them out and give them a listen again. 15 or 20 years ago, this Glass album used to get a lot of playtime.
