Between it and Ziggy Stardust for me.

Ziggy is great for sure, I think I like Dory more, as it's an album I can put on anytime, where Ziggy's for when I want to rock out.

Fair point. Perhaps that is why I alternate between the two albums.

John Lennon: Imagine





I have liked this album since the first time that I heard it but it is the only solo Lennon album that I now own.

Only more recently started getting into solo Lennon (outside of the singles.) I like the Plastic Ono Band album a lot.

To me the POB was up there with the Beatles material.

Absolutely. And for me, it has the advantage of not being over-exposed like the Beatles music.

Kinda saw this coming.  8)

I am listening through chronologically, so Lodger will be up next, when I am next in the mood for Bowie. For now, it's early, so some Haydn Trios by Beaux Arts.

It can be a great antidote for the same olds. But the same olds don't stay old for long do they, I never really wore out Revolver.

Good point. No matter how sick I get of the Beatles, if I leave them alone for 6 months or so, my interest is magically refreshed.

And yeah, Revolver is one that I put on anytime, though I think I like Rubber Soul even more.

That's a tough pick for me. I also love the White Album, even the uneven parts.

I don't listen to rock much either nowadays. In fact I had to search for Down To Earth (it wasn't in its assigned space on the shelves) and found it in a pile of CDs Mrs. Rock had been listening to. Still, it was great fun hearing it again.
