|May-17-12|| ||Jim Bartle: I disagree. I thought "Twaddle" was one of their best albums.|
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: lol.. 'Twaddle' Did'nt Ringo pen something like that but they gave it to another band ?!|
|May-17-12|| ||boz: More good first LPs include The Jimi Hendrix Experience and (to my deranged senses) Soft Machine.|
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: 'Maid of Orleans' Orchectral Manouvres in the Dark
|May-17-12|| ||keypusher: I don't think The Pretenders were ever this good again (losing their guitarist and bassist is some excuse, I guess). And not many albums ever were this good, period.|
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: TO ALL THE MAN CITY FANS on ere ..
'Some Might Say' Oasis

Blew me away at the time.
|May-17-12|| ||Shams: <boz> Nice call on Magnetic Fields. Thirteen years on, I still can't get <69 Love Songs> out of my head.|
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: Its My Life
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: Dear Prudence .. Fabs..

I was wondering if I was the only one. Check out the early stuff too. Charm of the Highway Strip, Holiday and the one I mentioned before, Distant Plastic Trees if you haven't already.
This is the saddest song I have ever heard:
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: There are sadder songs out there Boz.|
|May-17-12|| ||boz: OK, Harry, time for a top ten list then.|
|May-17-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Pretenders: I agree, the first one was the best, though they were still excellent afterward. That first had an edge and nastiness I wasn't accustomed to in 1980.|
The first Paul Butterfield Blues Band record is also great, and their best, though I don't know how many of the songs were originals.
With Hendrix I've always thought "Electric Ladyland" was far better than any of his others. It was just out a month or two when I went to see him at Winterland and I was disappointed he didn't play anything from that record, just stuff from that first record as well as goofing around on "Sunshine of Your Love" and that sort of thing.
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: This Mortal Coil .. 'You and your Sister '
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: Breeders 'Doe'
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: Do You Love Me Now ?
|May-17-12|| ||Shams: Put me down for "Axis: Bold as Love" as Hendrix' best LP.|
Pavement's "Slanted and Enchanted" is also a superb debut.
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: 'Divine Hammer' The Breeders
|May-17-12|| ||harrylime: Your sister says that I'm no good....
All I want to do ...
|May-17-12|| ||OhioChessFan: I am not sure if Music From Big Pink counts as a debut, but a fantastic album. Pronounced Lehn-erd Skin-nerd was great Southern rock.|
|May-17-12|| ||Jim Bartle: Big Pink was definitely a debut, and and We can talk about it now. (I'd rather be burned in Canada Than to freeze here in the South.) They'd already recorded the Basement Tapes, but they weren't released until years later, plus that was largely Dylan.|
But I thought we were talking about the first albums being the best a group ever did, and I think the Band's second one was better, and I also have a real liking for "Cahoots." (I know I'm in the minority there.)
|May-17-12|| ||Wayne Proudlove: Donna Summer's "She Works Hard For Her Money" was a feminist anthem. I'm not feminist because men can't be feminists but I'm all for standing up for yourself.
