Or tell me a reason not to get one. lol. Keep in mind, this will be the first purchase I make of these particular artists.
Neil Young - Harvest/After The Gold Rush - personally I prefer Harvest Moon over its prequel, and Ragged Glory is a really underrated proto-grunge album, haven't heard Goldrush

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Pronounced leh nerd skin nerd
The Allman Brothers Band - Eat A Peach/Brothers and Sisters


only heard comps of both bands, not a particularly favourite genre (Southern Rock, that is) - I prefer ZZ Top


Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood/Couldn't Stand The Weather

Texas Flood is great. Haven't heard Weather

Deep Purple - Machine Head

Only heard In Rock but if it's along the same lines, it should be terif.

Marvin Gaye - What's Going On

has a really samey sound over the entire album, great if you're in the mood

The Who - Who's Next

the best of their "arena rock" phase, but if you want a superlative Who, check out Sell Out!

Tom Petty - Damn The Torpedoes

pretty ok to above average Byrds-ish variant

Jethro Tull - Aqualung

haven't heard this yet, but you might like Thick as a Brick better but there's only two long songs there, though

Boston - Boston

no idea

Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

considered their best, but I prefer Summer Days (And Summer Nights) and Today over this, also Carl & The Passions' So Tough (I don't recommend this, though, it's an acquired taste, only one other person said it's good - Elton John)

BB King - I need to check my collection and get back to you

Jeff Beck - Truth, Beckola (Rod Stewart sings on both, though) and Blow by Blow are all essentials. Avoid Flash - he disowned it saying it's a session band jam thing.

Elvis Costello - (Spike/This Year's Model) - you're better off with Armed Forces or Imperial Bedroom my personal fave is King of America but you might only like it if you're into Americana

Steely Dan - Aja

Great stuff.

Skynyrd, Allman Bros, ZZ Top, Molly Hatchet?
