  • Ten Greatest Double Albums in Rock 'n' Roll History

    Hardly ever seen today. To be honest, releasing more than one album in a year has gone the way of the doubleheader in baseball.

    I can think of a few others that are contenders for the list.
    Double albums are always bold statements from artists, and often they can make or break a band.

      I am with you. As far as total content these 2 albums are excellent.

      Can't (and won't) argue about this list as I think it's pretty much bang-on! However, I have a personal favourite in Harmonium - l'heptade that I would have included.

        Delete:
        Pink Floyd, Elton John and the Who.

        Add:
        Allman's "Fillmore East"
        Prince "Sign 'O The Times"
        Frampton "Comes Alive!"

        Move:
        London Calling should be 1A or 1B, i.e. tied with Exile

          Although it's not my favorite PF album, I saw Roger Waters do a "Wall" concert in 2014 and it was one of the best concerts I've seen with surround sound and amazing visuals.

        I could easily replace Quadrophenia (don't care for The Who) with George Harrison - All Things Must Pass (3LP however).

          WTF????? They put in "Quadrophenia" over "Tommy"? And left off the best rock party album of the 60's Grand Funks Live? Dump "London Colling for the Allmans "Live at the Fillmore East".

          There should be separate threads for this....one STUDIO, one LIVE. They are two entirely different disciplines.

            Tommy should replace Quadrophenia, and if we keep live albums on the list, then Loggins and Messina On Stage has to fit in somewhere.

                Miles of Aisles - Joni Mitchell (maybe a little rock?)

                  Miles of Aisles is AWESOME!
                  Tusk is really good, but not sure if I'd personally include it in a Top 10
                  I can't do Neil Diamond....I've tried, but I can't.

                  I would definitely have Tusk in the Top 10.

                Gentlemen: let's move beyond the classic rock era, painful though it may be for some. I give you Ryan Adams, "Cold Roses" (2-LP, 2005)

                  Wow did we forget The Allman Bros Eat A Peach. Me the only one who has some love for that album. I like it much more than the Fillmore Album, despite the loss of Duane. I wore out a few copies of Eat A Peach.
