I forgot about Firesign Theater. Haven't listened to any of their stuff for a long time. I will rectify that this evening.

Green Day has a couple of "rock opera" albums, though I doubt they have a big following here. I wouldn't put them on my top list anyway.

And no one went for the easy ones so far Alice's Restaurant, American Pie, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida where the listener has no choice but to listen to the "whole side..."

Fun thread...

Santana (III) is a good album all the way through, but side one is especially good, and suite-like in that it should be played together.



Also features a 15yo Neil Schon...

I was thinking of that the other day and Googled it, only to learn that Ian Anderson is currently touring and performing Thick as a Brick in its entirety. I learned too late that he was in a nearby town, Tacoma, Sunday night but the show was sold out.

Yep, side one of In Search of the Lost Chord and both sides of On the Threshold of a Dream would qualify.

No list is complete without including Side 1 of Debby Boone's You Light Up My Life. It is not to be missed! Talk about mind altering....

A lobotomy is also mind altering...

Side 1 of Peter Frampton's 1972 debut solo album Wind of Change--from "Fig Tree Bay'' to "Oh for Another Day." I played it over and over for years. They didn't issue a CD of that record until late in the CD game. The following link contains tracks, of varying fidelity, from that Side 1, but for the first song, "Fig Tree Bay." And "It's a Plain Shame" plus "Oh for Another Day" are live versions, not from the album. And Ringo played on this LP!

XTC's Oranges & Lemons, released in 1989, Side 1.


Also Google XTC's one-time only alter ego, The Dukes of Stratosphear, and their fantastic "psychedelic" album 25 O'Clock. There were lots of great-listening tracks on that record.

Speaking of XTC, Google Martin Newell, then his The Greatest Living Englishman record of 1993, featuring Andy Partridge of XTC. That's another album where you'd be hard-pressed to select which side is better, if your musical tastes compare to mine.

(You lose a lot of sonic flavor/enjoyment when listening to music via the Internet on your computer these days, usually as an MP3 thru.. what speakers are you using? A warm-sounding vinyl record played on a quality 1970s stereo system in those old days was just too delicious to my ears.)

Dylan's 1975 Blood on the Tracks, Side 1. (I couldn't find the full LP on YouTube.)

And Crowded House's 1991 Woodface. Woodface is another of those "which side is better?" records/CDs. (As if CDs had any other side than just the one. I realize that by then vinyl LPs were quickly dying off.)

Here are snippets of that juicy-sounding album.

Sorry but I had to resurrect this thread to add Side 1 (or Side 2) of Who's Next.

This and his second solo album were both very good albums. Saw him live a few times in the earlymid-seventies-right before he hit big time with his live album-Frampton Comes Alive.

Of course, his stuff in Humble Pie wasn't bad either.

If you haven't heard side 4 of Rashaan Roland Kirk's "Case of the Three Sided Dream in Audio Color" you haven't heard anything.
