Classic Rock Bottom

First, the rules:


1. Only double albums from the beginning of time thru 1985 will be counted.

2. NO live albums and the album(s) must be studio recordings with no live tracks

3. NO soundtracks, original Broadway cast recordings, greatest hits, etc. etc.

4. It CAN be any type of music

5. If they were double albums on vinyl but not CD, they're still double albums

6. NO triple+ albums



So there you have it. List your top 5 double albums following the rules above, and we'll tally the list in about a week and come up with the definitive list to be used by all for the rest of time.


To get things rolling, here's mine:


5. Elton John--Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

4. The Clash--London Calling

3. Led Zeppelin--Physical Graffiti

2. The Who--Quadrophenia

1. Pink Floyd--The Wall

Okay, so since I messed up on number 5, here is my revised list:

5. The Who - Quadrophenia


4. Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti 

3. Pink Floyd - The Wall

2. Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

1. Electric Light Orchestra - Out Of The Blue


( 5 ) Allman Brothers - Eat A Peach

( 4 )  Chicago - II  ( They had 3 consecutive double albums of new studio material in less than two years, a feat that has yet to be repeated by any major artist or group.

( 3 )   Jimi Henrix - Electric Ladyland

( 2 )   Pink Floyd - The Wall  

( 1 )   The Beatles - White Album

Don't have to think hard about your past love of LP's - Energize your memory and send us your top 5 from this list.

Jon needs to make a ruling on Eat A Peach.  It contains live material as well as studio material...Jon?

Updated rule #1. Studio albums, no live tracks

OK - Cancel Eat A Peach because of the live cuts !!! - - Add one of the greatest works by an artist !!!!  Songs In The Key Of Life by Stevie Wonder - is the replacement for # 5 !!!

Nice replacement!

Liked That one also

5. Blonde On Blonde - Bob Dylan

4. "The White Album" - The Beatles

3. Exile On Main Street - The Rolling Stones

2. Tommy - The Who (Yes!!!! A list once again with The Who!!!!)

1. Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin (Not only best double-album, but best album ever!!!!)

Heres my list pending a ruling by Jon....

5.  The Allman Brothers - Eat A Peach

4.  Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti

3. The Who - Tommy

2. The Beatles - The Beatles (AKA The White Album)

1. Pink Floyd - The Wall

Due to the Jon clarification/ruling of "NO Live tracks..." I have to change my #5 to...

5 - The Who - Quadrophenia...

That's right!  The Who get a double mention on double albums!!!

Two Who?
