    Is the White Album by the Beatles considered rock? When I absolutely HAVE to pick that's usually the one I choose..

    PS: looking for some albums to demo? ;)

    Yes, I would consider the White Album a classic rock album.

    Benjamin

    PS: No, just in one of those moods to listen to some classics and wanted to hear everyone's favorites.

    Led Zep I is still tremendous 35+ years later. Who's Next is definitely a good one and for those with a taste for the classic stuff that did not get played to death on the radio In the Court of the Crimson King is also a great listen.

    Benjamin - You're just going to have to DEMO a few hundred classic rock albums and then make your own choice.

    Camilio I'm neither, but tell, does it hurt when you pee ? :)

    Actually I have to confess, it's a love/hate thing with Zappa and me. I really hate admiring such an egotistical arse, but he was brilliant.

    Black Sabbath...Black Sabbath. The first one that started it all for the Oz.

    King Crimson-Court of the Crimson King...Greg Lake's kickoff.

    Deep Purple-Machine Head...ah Machine Head; that was my "handle" on the ole' CB radio in the days when that was popular.

    Jethro Tull-A Passion Play...one of the very best concerts I've seen.

    Woodstock Soundtrac-Ten Years After, Hendrix...wow!

    That's enough...I'm feeling really old now!
