Okay, so unless other people object, it looks like were are going to begin the album/songs HOF project tomorrow, by first going with the albums portion, while I finish up the songs portion.

Our first year is going to be the 1986 election (aka: albums chosen for induction in 1985). Which means that any album that was released in 1960 or before will be eligible.

Our HOF is not going to include just albums from rock and roll and soul/R&B. Blues, jazz, folk, country, traditional pop, will also be eligible for the project. And as we get further into the project, albums from world music, reggae, dance/pop/disco, rap, and electronica will also become eligible.

Because this project is going to be so inclusive, the list of eligible albums and songs is going to be extremely large. Over the last few weeks, I have done serious research on the first 60 years of popular music and in the case of albums, serious research on the 1940's, 1950's, and 1960. The list of eligible albums is really big, much bigger than I think people are going to expect for the initial classes.

Many of the albums that will be on these lists probably aren't worthy of inclusion. But I wanted to make sure I included as many albums as possible so that all of the voters here would have plenty to choose from.

The initial list of eligible albums and songs are going to be bigger than the upcoming classes, because whereas future lists will focus on one specific year, the first list will focus on albums/LP's over a 20 year period, and for songs, over a 60 year period. Hence why it has taken me so long to get this done lol.

Because the list is so long, I am going to divide the list up by genre. Because if I was to post the entire thing it would be way too long and people would just get bored looking at it.


So without further ado, here is our list of eligible albums for the first election of our albums/songs portion of the Rock Hall Revisited project!!!!

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.1.10 @ 21:58pm


That's okay Donnie! The lists are awesome! I am all ready making my choices!!!

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 11.1.10 @ 22:03pm


Thanks Gassman, glad you like them! I don't think anyone is going to be short of choices.

I think the main players here for inducted albums are jazz artists, rock and roll artists, and Frank Sinatra. There should not be a single ballot turned in without a Frank Sinatra album on it. He more than any other artist is who got the LP market going in America. He helped to establish it.

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.1.10 @ 22:08pm


Also, I would recommend to everyone that they should copy and paste all of these lists into a Microsoft Word program on their computers. Because it's going to be quite difficult to keep re-posting these lists throughout the project. Especially as we get further and further into the project and the list of eligible songs and especially albums for each year grows and grows.

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.1.10 @ 22:11pm


Wow, the list of eligible albums is impressive and intimidating. I'm going to wait for the pages to be split before I proceed to vote. Amazing and commendable job, Donnie.

Posted by Paul K on Monday, 11.1.10 @ 22:52pm


I think giving up on the project entirely is a bit extreme if such a thing happens again. As unfortunate as it is, it's happened a few times throughout the project, and we've progressed fine throughout it.

I do have an idea that could possibly ensure such a thing from happening again. I don't personally think the idea is a necessary one, and I can even throw out an argument against it, but I'll propose it anyway to see if people want to do it or not.


To prevent spam profiles from voting and thus rigging the voting, what we could do is before we begin the project, we could have a "sign up session" of sorts here on the website. Anyone who wants to take part in this part of the project and is a regular, can simply post on here stating they want to do so and Gassman can record all of the names of the regulars who are planning to take part. He could give people a deadline to sign up, and once the deadline is up that's it (although he could make exceptions for noted regulars as we all pretty much know who the regulars are). If a person unfamiliar to us as a regular wants to participate but doesn't sign up by the deadline then their votes will not count throughout the project.


The advantages to this are as follows.

1. We all know who is voting and thus there won't be suspicious votes during the project.

2. It can serve as sort of a checklist for the person tallying votes as they'll know who to expect votes from and wait to finish until all of the voters have voted.


The disadvantages include...

1. There will probably be less voters obviously.

2. New people that come onto the site and want to participate after we start will have a tough time joining in as we won't know if they're a legitimate voter or some spam profile that's going to rig the voting.

3. We'll look like uptight snobs to non-regulars here lol.


I don't really think it's necessary to do this as we've done fine throughout the project with spam profiles coming on occasionally and causing problems. But if this issue is a big concern to the regulars, than this is a way of potentially solving it.


Thoughts?

Posted by Donnie on Tuesday, 11.2.10 @ 05:41am


Donnie... What if we're not familiar with any of the albums you've posted so far? Would I go and listen through each one by one and decide which ones I like best? In addition, how many from each style am I supposed to choose, and when is the deadline to have my vote for this section in? I'm definitely all in for this project, it's just I don't have time to listen to all of that today.

I don't think the rigged votes are a major concern, since prior to this incident there was only one minor thing. I think we just have to pay attention as closely as we can from now on.

Ray: I may get to Porcupine Tree in the future. Procol Harum is set to get in as of now and they're the last essential prog act (I've considered Hawkwind in the past, but they're not really a high priority) which should make it easier for me to get the Tree on future ballots. As far as Cleveland's concerned, I am still unhappy about the major oversights there, but I do sympathize with them as well, as you can't get to every deserving candidate at once. As far as some of the omissions people list at times, all I can say is "you can't induct everyone."

As of Ray's votes, here's the current voting results...

Performers:

XTC – 15
Coldplay – 14
X – 13
Kate Bush – 11
Procol Harum - 11
--------------------------------------
INXS – 10
Megadeth - 10
Missy Elliott – 10 (Seven and a half hours for this tie to be broken)
--------------------------------------
Boston – 9

The Flaming Lips – 8
The Offspring – 8
Lloyd Price - 8
The Runaways – 8
Siouxsie & the Banshees – 8

Non Performers:
Lew Chudd – 10
Jim Marshall – 10
---------------------------------
Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds – 6
Sergio Mendes – 6

Influences:

Buchanan & Goodman – 12
George Jones – 12
-------------------------------
Wanda Jackson – 7

Sidemen:

The Bar-Kays – 10
Paul Shaffer – 9
----------------------------------------
The Memphis Boys – 7

Full update may come in a bit.

I don't think it's really necessary for one to have listened to every single album on the list to be able to vote. Heck, I've only listened to maybe 3% of the albums that I listed if that. However, I have a pretty good knowledge of which albums have played an important part in music history and that is how I will be making my judgements, especially in the earlier classes, as most of my albums collection contains albums from about 1965 on (like most rock fans).


Just as one didn't have to listen to the majority of an artist's discography when voting for them in the artist's portion of our HOF, one doesn't necessarily have to listen to every single album to be able to judge. If that were the case, I'm pretty sure it's safe to say none of us would be able to vote and the project would have to be abandoned. I don't think even most of the experienced music experts in the world have listened to every single album I listed nor the rest of the albums that I actually didn't list (yeah believe it or not, I left out some).

My advice would be to start looking at some of the lists on DigitalDreamDoor, Rolling Stone, Acclaimedmusic.net, AllMusic (which I know you're a frequent visitor of), and other critical sources, and looking to see which albums are generally the most acclaimed and thus are probably the most deserving.

Or if you're just not comfortable in voting and don't feel you're knowledable enough to vote, then just wait until we get further into the project to vote. I would say that to everyone here.

The first few years as Gassman said are probably going to be the most challenging, as most of us aren't as familiar with LPs in the pre-Beatles era of popular music.

I do have plenty of critical lists (such as albums/songs in the Grammy Hall of Fame, and plenty of other greatest lists) stored on my computer, and if anyone here would like access to these lists to help them out in making their choices, look me up on Facebook, and send me a request, and I'll add you and message you some lists or any other info that I can help out in.

Go to Facebook and look up the name "Donnie Durham." DarinRG and Paul are on there.

Actually I think all of us should add each other on there, and perhaps form our own group on there as a side-group to this page. It might actually work better for our albums/songs project, especially if FutureRockLegends won't make a separate page for the albums/songs portion.

Posted by Donnie on Tuesday, 11.2.10 @ 07:48am


And as for the "how many of each genre should I choose" question, I don't think it really matters. There's no set criteria. So if one wants to vote for all rock and roll albums, and nothing else, that's their right.

The only reason I posted all the albums separated by genre was to shorten the list and make it easier to read for everyone here. Imagine if I had combined all 6 parts of the list into one giant list. Put it this way, on my Microsoft Word program, it took up 12 pages! That's a lot of reading with blurred and hurt eyes afterwards haha. I didn't do that way due to any set criteria for a certain amount from each genre or anything.

Although I'm sure most voters (I obviously will be) will try to be diverse and include representatives from all major genres just as we did with the artists, so the separate posts do serve as a guide of sorts for those type of voters.

But yeah, unless Gassman states otherwise, there is no set criteria, and a voter can choose however many albums from a genre to vote for as they want.


Also, in addition to the sites I mentioned earlier, I would also recommend Wikipedia as a good source of info. If you want more details on the albums on the list, most of them have Wikipedia entries, and you can get good info about the albums, their track listings, recording history, and overall impact on the charts and music history. For a good portion of them anyway. Another key is that if the album has an actual Wikipedia entry, that probably means it's more important, and thus probably worth considering more. ;)

Posted by Donnie on Tuesday, 11.2.10 @ 07:57am


But also keep in mind, a person can vote for only 12 albums for each class.

As for the deadline, that has yet to be made official. I assume that won't be set until later today when the voting for the 2026 class wraps up. And that's up to Gassman. I'm just providing the lists of eligible albums and songs, I'm not running it. :)

Posted by Donnie on Tuesday, 11.2.10 @ 08:00am


"Acclaimedmusic.net, AllMusic (which I know you're a frequent visitor of), and other critical sources, and looking to see which albums are generally the most acclaimed and thus are probably the most deserving."

Good idea, I do use Acclaimed Music as a source when I use the Keltner analysis. Thanks. I think I'll give this first part of it a shot, and I'll definitely be ready to go when we get to the late 60's and early 70's.

Posted by Sam on Tuesday, 11.2.10 @ 09:25am


We will go a week for the album project. So when we are done with 2026 today, we will than move to albums for 1986. Then next week Tuesday we will start the songs project with 1986. Then the Tuesday after that we will start the albums/songs for 1987.

Posted by Gassman on Tuesday, 11.2.10 @ 10:53am


I'll try with the albums thing, but i'm not that great on music pre 1963.

Posted by GFW on Tuesday, 11.2.10 @ 14:09pm


Okay, could someone lay out the details/rules of this Album project for me, quick and loose please? Thanks.

Posted by Chalkie on Tuesday, 11.2.10 @ 15:15pm


Donnie, I skimmed the album lists of yours... one omission that should be counted, even though it didn't chart, is the Crew Cuts' "Rock And Roll Bash" from 1956. It's one that I will probably push for in the early years, right alongside "Elvis '56".

------------------------------------------------

Sounds good. I'll add it to my list of albums for the next class (unless of course it gets in).


That also brings up another issue. If anyone thinks of any songs or albums that I missed, please share them so that way I can add them to my lists for future classes, and so other voters can be aware of them.

7: Ritchie Valens
8: The best Of The Everly Brothers
9: It Might As Well Be Swing
10: Elvis Presley
11: Songs For Swining Lovers

I'm under the impression compilations albums with material recorded before 1960 are okay. Everything I have up there has a song i like, apart from the Elvis one, that's just because I ran out of ideas and went for that.

Let me just say that I am extremely proud of this project as a whole, we made plenty of terrific decisions and created a diversive and truly representative picture of rock and roll. One that includes music ranging from Bon Jovi to Nirvana, Steve Miller Band to N.W.A., and Alice Cooper to Randy Newman. There is nothing to be ashamed of here, pat yourselves on the back everyone.

I was gonna wait till the 1995 class to enter again, but what the hell, I'll cast my votes.

Frank Sinatra - Nice and Easy (1960)
Frank Sinatra - In The Wee Hours (1955)
Frank Sinatra - Songs For Swingin' Lovers! (1956)

Nat King Cole - Unforgettable (1954)

GFW - It Might as Well Be Swing isn't eligible until 1990. So you have two votes remaining.

Chalkie - King of the Delta Blues isn't eligbile until next year (1987). Do you want me to just replace it with Harry Smith's "Anthology of American Folk Music"? Also I will allow "Kontakte" by Karlheinz Stockhausen. I will allow recordings of classical music as long as they were first composed in the 20th Century or later.

You don't have to do that Sam. It doesn't have anything to do with rankings (unless a tie-breaker occurs, then I imagine will go with the same rules as the artists portion, which of course then you would have to rank your choices).

I recently received an email from Future Rock Legends telling me that they have created a page for our induction speeches!

Here is the link:

http://www.futurerocklegends.com/Rock_Hall_Revisited_Inductees.php

Also I was told that there will be a page for our album and song inductions, but we need to give each of the projects a name. I am willing to take suggestions!

Also here are the album project rules:

Each voter has the ability to vote for 12 albums.

Albums become eligible 25 years after the earliest date in which the album was released to the public.

All genres of music will be eligible. Is includes, but is not limited too, Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Folk, Classical, R&B, Metal, Disco, Hip-Hop, Electronica, Traditional Pop, Jazz, and Blues.

The only stipulation is that the recording has to be of music composed since 1900. This means no recordings of 19th Century classical composers or medieval Gregorian chants. This does exclude re-interpretations of these compositions made by 20th and 21st artists.

No compilation albums released after 1965 will be eligible, unless about 75% of the album was recorded before 1965 (Elvis's Sun Session, etc). Those albums become eligible they year they were released, not recorded.

What exact version of an album that will be inducted will be voted on after the album is inducted. This will be important for albums that had different track listings in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Tie-breaker rules will be the same as the Rock Hall Revisited / Projected

Voting period will be a week long at the start of the project. This may change in the future.


While here are the song project rules:

Each voter has the ability to vote for 25 songs and 10 early-influence songs.

The dividing line between the regular songs and the early influence songs will be roughly 1952. People should think of this more in terms the type of music the act is performing. Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Louis Jordon, etc should be in the early influences. Just use sound judgment in making your votes because it would be impossible to have an exact dividing line.

Songs become eligible 25 years after the earliest date in which the song was released to the public. Regardless if it was released only as a single, first as a single then on an album, first on an album then a single, or only on a album.

A song can be inducted multiple times, depending on how many different versions deserve induction. This will allow for the induction of important covers.

All genres of music will be eligible. Is includes, but is not limited too, Rock and Roll, Rockabilly, Country, Folk, Classical, R&B, Metal, Disco, Hip-Hop, Electronica, Traditional Pop, Jazz, and Blues.

Tie-breaker rules will be the same as the Rock Hall Revisited / Projected

Voting period will be a week long at the start of the project. This may change in the future.


To everyone, but especially Donnie – If I am missing anything here, let me know!

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 12:59pm


An awfully ambitious project to say the least. I hope you possess the fortitude to see it through till 2011-or will it be till 2026 again??

Posted by classicrocker on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 13:29pm


is there a reason nobody has put forth a ballot of songs yet?

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 13:37pm


Sam - I am planning on restarting asking people for write ups as soon as this project up and running.

Classicrocker - For this project I am actually planning on coming to 25 years from the present day, which I believe would be 2036. I think it would be a fair compromise to those who wanted to go that far in the Rock Hall Revisited / Projected.

Tahvo - The reason that nobody has put forth a songs ballot is Donnie is still working on the grand list. So we will vote for albums until next week Wednesday. Then we will hopefully start the song project in 1986 and then the Wednesday after that we will go to 1987 for both projects.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 13:55pm


alright thanks. I'll be putting in an album ballot soon.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 14:20pm


I think the week voting per thing sounds fine. I mean, it is a long wait, but really the only thing we're looking out for otherwise is the inductee announcement in December, and after that there's the long period of inactivity, so there's no rush to get through this, and it gives us all something to do for quite awhile.

Posted by Sam on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 14:50pm


I only have two questions about the rules list, which look to have been changed from what had been decided earlier.

1. I thought the Early Influences category was going to include music from 1900-1953? And then 1954 would be the first official year for the regular category. Considering that was the year that Elvis made his first official recordings, that Bill Haley recorded and released "(We're Gonna) Rock Around the Clock and his earliest albums (which were basically the first rock and roll albums), and that songs like "Sh-Boom" and "Earth Angel" were released, songs that are definitively considered to be the first rock and roll hits? But if not, does that mean that 1952 will be the last official year for "Early Influence" music, and 1953 will be the first official year for the regular category. Or will 1952 be considered the first official year of the regular category? I hope it's not the latter because I think 1952 is a bit too early for the rock and roll era.

Posted by Donnie on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 14:57pm


I'll only be taking part in the album project, though I'll watch the song one from afar.

"Hank Williams Sings" was a four-78rpm record set released in 1952 which included "I Saw The Light", "Wedding Bells", "Mansion on the Hill" and "Lost Highway". Really important stuff and the closest thing to a "classic album" that Hank ever released.

Posted by Chalkie on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 15:36pm


And a heads-up for 1991, Leadbelly's "Library of Congress Recordings" were released as a 3-LP set in 1966. This collection should be a no-brainer for election as Leadbelly is probably one of the top 10 figures in (North) American music history.

Posted by Chalkie on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 15:48pm


Donnie - You are right, it is 1954. I will change that in the rules.

Everyone - It would be great that when you make your votes you could list it as: artist (year) - act. It would make it much easier for the person counting the vote if we all had a similar style of voting.

Example:

Kind of Blue (1959) - Miles Davis

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 16:44pm


I know it is still early in the voting process, but someone needs to tell me why there is such a lack of support for Giant Steps by John Coltrane. To me this is a no brainer first year / first ballot album! Rolling Stone has it as 102nd greatest album of alltime. The Penguin Guide to Jazz calls it "Trane's first genuinely iconic record" and it is a part of its "Core Collection." Also Digital Dream Door has it ranked as the 12th best Jazz album of all time. For those who have yet to vote I would strongly suggest that you vote for Giant Steps!

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 11.4.10 @ 16:55pm


It's on my queue, but behind "Kind of Blue", "Mingus Ah Um", Ornette Coleman's "The Shape of Jazz to Come" and Monk's "Brilliant Corners".

Eligible jazz albums I plan on voting for...

Dave Brubeck - "Time Out"

Ornette Coleman - "The Shape of Jazz to Come"

John Coltrane - "Giant Steps" and "Blue Train"

Miles Davis - "Kind of Blue", "Birth of the Cool", "'Round About Midnight", "Sketches of Spain"

Duke Ellington - "At Newport"

Charles Mingus - "Mingus Ah Um" and "Pithecanthropus Erectus"

Thelonious Monk - "Brilliant Corners"

The Quintet - "Jazz at Massey Hall"

None of these albums are eligible Roy. Only albums released in 1960 or before are eligible for this particular class.

Posted by Donnie on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 04:59am


As far as Jazz albums go, another one that should easily get in by the 3rd or 4th class (at the latest) is "The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery." This is the quintessential Jazz guitar album, and is usually in the top 10 of most Greatest Jazz Albums of All-Time lists. This one is in my top 10 Jazz albums queue and should be in everyone else's as well.

All of the ones that Chalkie listed are also on my queue (I'm the only thus far to vote for "Brilliant Corners" by Thelonious Monk.


Honestly, until we get to around 1965 (which would be the 1991 class), our HOF realistically should include more Jazz albums than probably anything else, as Jazz was the first format of music to really produce classic LPs, as a genre. Sinatra of course put the album market on the map, but other than Sinatra, there wasn't too many traditional pop singers who were ambitious with the album format.

While I am interested in this, I will not be voting for anything until we get to 1965-1966, at least on the albums project. The era before 1965-66 was primarily a singles market. Many albums in the past were built from simple compilations of singles.

I'd much rather vote on a massive, extended singles section for this (say 50 songs from 1953-58, & another 50 from 59-64) than doan album vote. Perhaps I'll join you all later.

Posted by GFW on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 13:29pm


Howlin' Wolf's first (and perhaps only) "album" that could be considered "great" is 1962's "Howlin' Wolf" (also known as "the Rockin' Chair Album"). I strongly recommend that people wait until an artist's first great album's eligibity rolls around rather than voting for an inferior album (ie. "Moanin' at Midnight").

I agree with Cheesecrop in the respect that a lot of these artists didn't even have one great album, as most music (other than jazz) was generally singles oriented. It really isn't until the early/mid-60's when the album develops fully into an art form. Even then there's still a number of labels churning out singles rather than albums. 1970 pretty muchs sounds the death toll of the single.

I strongly urge you all to do your research (as I will) on this project as I think it may be more of a requirement.

Posted by Chalkie on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 14:02pm


I made my queue for this.

Posted by GFW on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 14:10pm


My Votes:

Here's Little Richard (1957) - Little Richard
Elvis Presley (1956) - Elvis Presley
Bo Diddley (1958) - Bo Diddley
In The Wee Small Hours (1955) - Frank Sinatra
Kind of Blue (1959) - Miles Davis
Is On Top (1959) – Chuck Berry
Dustbowl Ballads (1940) – Woody Guthrie
The "Chirping" Crickets (1957) - Buddy Holly & The Crickets
Ray Charles (1957) – Ray Charles
With His Hot and Blue Guitar (1957) – Johnny Cash
Songs For Swingin' Lovers (1956) - Frank Sinatra
The Genius of Ray Charles (1959) - Ray Charles



I'd like to give a shout out to the individuals that did a lot of research for this project. Donnie in particular has done an incredible job. Without the comprehensive lists, this project would be a bit of a nightmare, especially when we hit the 60's and 70's and forget about certain releases or when important ones were released. I was skeptical at first, but I'm sure this will be pulled off satisfactorily.

Also, yes, my ballot is the current Top 11, plus one more. I'm not trying to be needlessly strategic....I just think the other voters clearly have shifted towards the correct choices already.

Posted by Casper on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 14:15pm


Chalkie already said what I wanted to point out. Aside from some jazz records I feel we're ingnoring, this was still primarily a singles era. Keep in mind that we are NOT trying to compile a collection of great artists like we were with the last project. It is EXPECTED that a lot of great artists will be ignored because they've never provided a definitive album. The point of this project is to find the greatest albums of all time and establish a cannon via that medium, NOT to find the greatest artists of the rock era.

Posted by Casper on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 14:19pm


Evaluation is very time consuming. Invest in a good turntable.

Posted by classicrocker on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 14:39pm


Hey, guys, can we just display all elected albums under the year they were released? It will make everything way more readable. I don't want to scroll down to a mock 1981 election featuring albums from the 60's, 70's and 80's....it will be much easier if the top of this page sorts by year and then artist and album under that. It will be clear to everyone which year we're working on since the newest year in the list will be the one eligible in the previous election (so if a user sees that we just inducted albums from 1963, they'll know that 1964 is now eligible).

Posted by Casper on Friday, 11.5.10 @ 15:49pm


The new page for albums, and one for songs, have arrived!

In the Revisited and Projected Rock Hall project, I did not get involved until the Revisited Class of 2006. For both of these projects, and for the eventual induction honors in all fields, I suppose it would be best to begin with this induction cycle. Therefore, here are the albums from the start of the recording industry up through 1960 that will mark up my picks for the Album class of 1986:

Miles Davis - Kind of Blue (1959)
Little Richard - Here's Little Richard (1957)
Frank Sinatra - Songs for Swingin Lovers (1956)
Frank Sinatra - In the Wee Small Hours (1955)
Miles Davis - Birth of Cool (1957)
Chuck Berry - Chuck Berry Is On Top (1959)
Billie Holliday - Lady Day (1954)
Ray Charles - The Genius of Ray Charles (1959)
Ray Charles - 1957 self-titled album
Woody Guthrie - Dustbowl Ballads (1940)
Buddy Holly - The "Chirping" Crickets (1957)
Duke Ellington - Ellington Uptown (1952)

Well, these are my inagural selections for this album project. I do agree with Casper that in addition to class year, the albums and songs should be presented in year of completion. In any case, I am very excited for this second phase of this inducting project. This should only get more interesting as the weeks fly by.

Witnessing the birth of an art form,

One of the reasons it's probably inactive is that there really isn't much argument for the inductions. I think the further we get into the project when more and more classic albums become eligible, the more difficult it's going to be to choose and thus more discussion will develop.

Here's what wikipedia has to say about the early history of concept albums... Might be interesting to some:

"Early examples

What could very loosely be considered the first concept albums were released in the late 1930s by singer Lee Wiley on the Liberty Records label, featuring eight songs on four 78s by showtune composers of the day, such as Harold Arlen and Cole Porter, anticipating more comprehensive efforts by Verve Records impresario Norman Granz with Ella Fitzgerald by almost two decades.[2]

In folk music, early examples included Woody Guthrie's 1940 debut album Dust Bowl Ballads and Merle Travis's 1947 box set Folk Songs of the Hills, in which each song is introduced by a short narrative.[3][4] In the late '40s, Kansas City pianist Pete Johnson recorded the album House Rent Party, in which he starts out playing alone, supposedly in a new empty house, and is joined there by J. C. Higginbotham, J.C. Heard, and other Kansas City players. Each has a solo backed by Pete and then the whole group plays a jam session together.[5]

Frank Sinatra released many thematically programmed albums of the 1950s for Capitol Records starting with the ten-inch 33s Songs for Young Lovers and Swing Easy. One commentator claims that Sinatra is the true originator of the idea.[6] Perhaps the first full Sinatra concept album example is In the Wee Small Hours from 1955, where the songs – all ballads – were specifically recorded for the album, and organized around a central mood of late-night isolation and aching lost love, with the album cover strikingly reinforcing that theme.[7]

However, notion of a concept album did not really gel at that point, and was not widely imitated, aside from occasional examples such as country singer Marty Robbins' Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs from 1959,[8] or Ray Charles's The Genius Hits the Road (1960), where each song references one of the United States ("Georgia on My Mind", "Mississippi Mud", etc.).[9] Also released that year, Johnny Cash's Ride This Train chronicled tales of Americana, woven together with narrative by Cash and train sounds. Each track begins with "Ride this train to ..." and tells the story of that city.

Plus, I do not have the songs list ready yet, so closing voting now wouldn't be cool. I was given til' Wednesday to finish it. I would like to at least have til' Wednesday like originally promised to finish the list. Keep in mind I'm doing lists for both 1954-1960 (the first 6 years of the rock and roll era for our regular category) and also 1900-1953 (the first 53 years of the 20th century that comprises our "Early Influences" category). That's a lot of work and research, especially with me wanting to have as much covered as possible.

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.8.10 @ 11:16am


Casper - I like your idea of listing the albums and songs by the year they were released. I would still like if we put the year in which they were iducted next it to it though. An example would be:

1955

In The Wee Small Hours - Frank Sinatra (1986)

1956

Elvis Presley - Elvis Presley (1986)

Would that be cool with everyone?

GFW - Like what Donnie said, we have to go the full week. I'll wait and see how the next few classes go before making a decsion on chaning the time to vote.

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 11.8.10 @ 13:42pm

Meh, there may be a bit of a dearth in quality "rock and roll" albums until the mid 60's comes around, but there should be more than enough Blues, R&B, Folk, Country and (especially) Jazz albums to tide us over until then.

Elvis Presley (1956) - Elvis Presley
Elvis (1956) - Elvis Presley
Bo Diddley (1958) - Bo Diddley
With His Hot and Blue Guitar (1957) - Johnny Cash
Rock And Roll Bash (1956) - Crew Cuts

Elvis Presley- 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong (1959) (compilation)


Sorry to be so Elvis heavy, but Elvis is the reason that Billboard made their album charts a regular feature. The entire history of album rock might be a very different story if not for Elvis Presley.

Posted by Philip on Monday, 11.8.10 @ 16:39pm


"Elvis Presley- Elvis’ Christmas Album (1957)
Elvis Presley- For LP Fans Only (1959)
Elvis Presley- A Date With Elvis (1959)
Elvis Presley- 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can’t Be Wrong (1959) (compilation)"

I could see MAYBE voting for these ones. You do make a good point though about Elvis shaping the history of the album. The Beatles, Dylan and Sinatra are the only other (non-Jazz) artists (depending on whether one considers Sinatra jazz) who I'd say were as singularly important in this respect.

The only Christmas album I'll probably vote for will be Phil Spector's. But the Elvis one comes in at second.

Posted by Chalkie on Monday, 11.8.10 @ 17:02pm


I think there will be more than enough Blues, R&B, Folk, Country and Jazz albums to vote for even after the mid 60s...

I see what you're saying but I don't agree with this logic at all. We should look at each album on an individual basis, not compare it to other albums in the artist's catalog that might be superior. For example, I feel that Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is the Beatles' finest album. Does that mean I should wait to for their earlier albums such as Please Please Me and A Hard Day's Night, which are both classics in their own right, but admittedly aren't near as sophisticated or as big of masteprieces as Sgt. Pepper's or Abbey Road? Of course not.

I will be voting for Howlin' Wolf's first album in the next class definitely. It was one of my top choices for the first class that missed the cut. The Rocking Chair album may be better, but I think both are worthy inclusions. Howlin' Wolf's first album is one of the few significant blues album during blues's first years in the album age. Blues music along with rock and roll and country was most based around the singles' business, so there's really not many worthy blues choices early on. Howlin' Wolf's first album is one of the few.

You're right here, I should have made myself clearer to begin with. I thought it was self-evident that this kind of logic wouldn't apply to artists like the Beatles. When there is an artist (like Wolf) who might not even have ONE great album, I'm not going to vote for their first eligible album if it is inferior to their lone borderline-masterpiece.

You may have your own reasons to vote for "Moanin' in the Moonlight", but I won't vote for an album which (myself, many others and most music historians will agree) just plain isn't a great album, if only to get the artist on the board.

I want to make this perfectly clear, ***IN MY OPINION*** if this project is at all successful there will be MANY great artists, who would normally be in the HOF, with no albums inducted here. For example, Bing Crosby is probably one of the top 10 figures in 20th century music, but the man NEVER released a proper album that was anything close to "great", "classic", "brilliant", "iconic", "innovative", etc, etc, etc. On the other hand a band like Television's entire reputation rests on one album that is all those aforementioned adjectives and more.

I agree with this assessment as well. It also applies to the song project as well. The song project should include plenty of artists who maybe aren't legendary/great artists or produced any classic album, but instead made a classic song. That's what makes these two projects interesting!

If I remember right there was a debate between having 10 or 15 albums, so we compromised to 12. Also if we come to the present (2010), like I would like to, it would come to a total of 600 albums.

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 11.8.10 @ 20:29pm


I agree Donnie. Take an act like Meat Loaf, for example. Does he deserve a place in the RRHOF? of course not. But does Bat Out of Hell deserve a place in this? ofcourse, it'd be silly to dismiss it.

Posted by GFW on Tuesday, 11.9.10 @ 10:07am


I wouldn't call it silly to dismiss "Bat Out of Hell". I like it and may even vote for it, but I can understand why a lot of people might not vote for it.

Posted by Chalkie on Tuesday, 11.9.10 @ 12:21pm


GFW & Chalkie - "Bat Out of Hell" will be getting my vote in its first year of eligibility! He would have been an Hall of Fame act if he could have made a few more like it.

Donnie - Will the song lists be ready for tomorrow? Also do you have any problem with the suggestion that Casper had in listing the albums and songs by the year in which they were released? I think this would work the best.

Everyone - I just want to say that I am extremely happy on how this process is going so far! I think this is going to turn out just as good as the Revisited/Projected!

Chalkie, I know you're gonna hate this, but there are a number of Christmas albums I see me voting for. Well, a couple anyway. I can tell you right now, I'll be voting for:

Booker T. And The MG's: In The Christmas Spirit
The Ventures: (forget the name of it, but it's great)
The Four Seasons: Seasons' Greetings (seriously, this is a fantastic album in its concept, approach, and execution)
Phil Spector's Christmas album.... no brainer
Various Artists: Yo! Ho! Ho!.... showed that Christmas and hip-hop don't necessarily clash.

Interesting to see Stockhausen get so many votes in this project, when he never had this much support for our hall.

Posted by Ray on Tuesday, 11.9.10 @ 19:58pm


To answer Gassman's questions.....

It's going to be an extreme challenge to have the songs list done by tomorrow to be honest. I have rock and roll, soul/R&B and proto-rock and roll/doo-wop artists all done and ready to go, well for the most part. I could probably do more research on these categories and add more songs, but I think those genres are generally covered with the really important songs. I'll probably go back as the project moves along and add more stuff as I find it, but beings we're on a deadline, I think those genres are good enough and ready to go.


But truthfully I haven't even gotten started on blues, traditional pop, jazz, folk, and country yet, for both categories :( I am planning on spending the majority of my night here working on these trying to get these finished in time for tomorrow. I will do my best. I will probably not put very much traditional pop and jazz songs in the regular categories, as singles really weren't Jazz's thing by the time the '50s approached (at that point Jazz had become much more an album-orientated music than singles/songs) anyway. I'll try to include as much as I can with what time I have though. But those categories will probably have to be expanded on as time goes along.

But I will definitely at least try to get blues and country done by tonight in both categories. Rather than researching by artist (which is what I've been doing and I have mass lists of artists, like hundreds/thousands even), I'm probably just going to pull songs from a few lists, like songs in the Grammy Hall of Fame, songs that are part of DigitalDreamDoors' lists, songs from Acclaimemusic.net's lists and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Greatest Songs list. And maybe expand the eligibile songs lists as the projects moves through.


As for the Casper suggestion, I've read you guys talking about this, and I'm really not following you guys here. I already listed the years by each album when I posted the eligibile albums lists, and was planning on doing the same for the songs lists, so I really don't even get why this is even being brought up. I think I'm missing something here.

Posted by Donnie on Tuesday, 11.9.10 @ 20:00pm


I've been kinda lurking on the edge of all this trying to decide whether or not to participate. What I don't understand is why 1 guy is doing all this compiling of lists for songs/albums to vote for. Isn't it the responsibility of each voter to do the research for themselves? And if the answer is because they don't know enough about all the songs or albums to choose from, then how are they going to go about deciding? They'll just choose the Elvis song because that's the only artist on the list they know, and then the whole exercise just becomes a popularity contest, doesn't it?

------------------------------------------------

I volunteered to do all the research for our eligible albums and songs lists. And we've always had eligibility lists. Having one big list, makes it easier for everyone else to know what is eligible and what isn't. It's going to be easier for everyone in choosing and not having people have to think if "such and such" is eligible yet. And having a big massive list will help to ensure that a great song/album won't be missed or forgotten. Of course it doesn't eliminate it entirely as I could very well miss something myself. But I'm pretty accurate in my research and have a great memory for music and history and dates, so anything that's notable, I'm sure I won't miss.

It's one thing to research on artists which is easier. Having to research albums and songs both is a much more massive project and much more work involved, so again it'll be easier for everyone else to have a big list to look at to see what they can vote for.

Posted by Donnie on Tuesday, 11.9.10 @ 20:58pm


All I can say Donnie is you're a really swell guy. Really.

Posted by classicrocker on Tuesday, 11.9.10 @ 22:24pm


I predict A LOT of tie-breaker votes for the albums and especially the songs. I don't know what people think about tie-breakers, maybe it's fun for some people, maybe a pain in the butt for others... but the tie-breaker losers all get in eventually, don't they, so what's the point? Maybe it would be worth considering banning tie-breaker votes and just have an uneven number of inductees go in each year... Dumb idea? Or should we vote on this? Maybe we could, instead, set a threshold... for instance, an album needs to get over 10 votes to get in, something like that? Or is it THAT important to have exactly 12 inductees each year?

I vote that we don't induct any album or sing that is tied for the final spot, and if we end up with fewer at the end of the whole thing, so be it....

Posted by Darrin A on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 00:28am


Donnie - One I second the opinion put forth by classicrocker. The work you have done on this is awesome. Also, its okay if you don't have the song list by tomorrow. We can push it back as long as you need time to complete it. Lastly the idea that Casper brought up has to do with how Future Rock Legends would show the albums and songs that were inducted. Instead of organizing them by the year they were inducted, we would have them sorted out by year in which they were released with the year they were inducted next to in in (). I just wanted to know what your opinion was on that matter.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 00:28am


Classicrocker- Thanks lol. I try to be! I know this is a lot of work, but I wouldn't have volunteered for it if I didn't enjoy it. Honestly, this is something I've been wanting to do for a very long time and have held off over the years. I'm basically making mass lists of albums, songs, and artists of 20th century music, and this project is going to help me complete those lists, which will be great material for future lists I make. And I don't know maybe I could do something more with it like publish it or build a career out of it? *shrugs*

So yeah, it's a bunch of work, but it's also my passion and in the process I am further educating myself on 20th century music.


Gassman (status of the lists/project)- An extension would be fantastic. I know everyone's getting impatient and dying to get this started, but this is a lot of work and there's so much to cover. If you wouldn't mind extending it longer, I would really appreciate it. The problem is that my main days to work on this are Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. I work basically 12-14 hour days (counting work, getting ready for work, traveling from work to home, etc.) on Wed.-Sat. so I don't really have a bunch of time to work on it on those days (though I've been spending the majority of time I have on those days working on it).

I really think I should have it ready by Monday, which I think would be a great starting point for our weekly voting periods anyway. Monday is a good day to start a week-long voting period, so I propose I post the lists Sunday night/Monday morning, start the Songs project on Monday, and have our voting period go until the following Monday, and then do our 1987 class for both albums and songs the following week. And have our voting periods go from Monday-Sunday, an entire week.

I know everyone's wanting to get started and are bored haha, so what we could do for the remainder of the week, is perhaps someone could hold some kind of short music tournament (a vocalists/guitarists tournament or something) that could last a few days to keep everyone preoccupied while I'm finishing up the lists. I obviously won't be moderating that project, it's just an idea I'm throwing out to give everyone here something to do while I'm finishing the song lists up for the remainder of the week. Thoughts?

Gassman (sortings/listings for album/song inductees): I really don't have a definite opinion on this issue. I think both methods would be fine. I guess if I have to choose, I would probably go with us listing by induction year and then beside each album have the year they were released in parenthesis. After all this is supposed to represent a "HOF of albums" and when you have lists of inductees for most HOF's they're organized by induction year. So I guess I prefer that method over Casper's suggestion (no offense Casper), but again it really doesn't matter. Both work fine. I don't know, maybe the site could do both?

Darrin A- I see your point, but I don't think tie-breakers will be too much a pain in the albums category at least. I really don't see our tie-breakers including anymore albums in them than our artists tie-breakers had. Songs on the other hand could get pretty bad. I think there is potential for our songs category to end up with like 10-15 songs tied at one point. I think if it gets that high, we may be doing better to not have a tie-breaker at all and just start the following year. But I'm kind of indifferent on this issue as well. I don't personally have a problem with tie-breakers and have no issues with continuing the way we did things in the artists portion of the HOF. But if more people would like to see tie-breakers eliminated, I wouldn't object to it either.

Posted by Donnie on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 03:59am


The song voting will start on Monday at 3pm Eastern time.

Between now and then we will do a 100 favorite guitarist list. As Donnie said, this will give us something to do as we wait for Monday. The voting on this will start after close of the 1986 album class today and it will close when the song voting starts on Monday.

I actually like Donnie's idea of displaying the inductees in both ways. I would say on this main page it would be best to show it in the order in which they were inducted. Then we could have a link at the top (like the inductees paragraphs) that would go to a page were it would be organized by year like the way Casper recommended.

Lastly, I am going to wait and see about the tie breaker issue for at least a couple of classes. If it becomes an issue, we can adress it than.

"Until that time we will do a 100 favortie (not greatest) guitarist list like we did for our 100 favorite artists. "

Oh, I see. Is this in a separate thread? Sorry about the votes from before. Can they still count for when we pick this back up? I'm not really sure if I could do a Top 100 Guitarists. A Top 50 seems good for me, but I'll try in a later post. To start, Here's my base Top 10 in order of preference:

1)Eddie van Halen
2)Jimi Hendrix
3)Stevie Ray Vaughan
4)Chuck Berry
5)Jimmy Page
6)Tony Iommi (sp?)
7)Eric Clapton
8)Jeff Beck
9)Randy Rhoads
10)Ritchie Blackmore

One last thing: Is this Rock Guitarists or Guitar in General?

I'll count peoples votes that have already voted, but no one eles should vote until we open up the next round of voting. I will also allow those how have already voted to change their votes if they see an album on Donnie's list that they would want to vote for.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 11.10.10 @ 21:57pm


Got it narrowed down to 115. I tried to keep it mostly rock, but there is a few post 1950 blues guitarists in there.

Vote update counting the votes done.
Also I'm not gonna do the whole 100 best guitarists thing, I can barely name any.
But I don't know why Chuck Berry is seen as so great, I always found him pretty boring.

Again, voting hasn't started yet for 1987. Please hold on to your votes and wait until we open the voting, I wouldn't want anybody to not vote for something they mistakenly forgot.

Oh I didn't realize voting hasn't started yet, my mistake

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Thursday, 11.11.10 @ 11:22am


Thats okay Tahvo, great album votes (Even though I agree that you could use more Jazz)

Also I love your guitar player list, we have the same number 1!

By the way people, how the hell are you able to actually type down all of the artists including the year and album name all in alphabetical order? Omg, that would be really confusing for me to do. :S

Posted by Brittany on Thursday, 11.11.10 @ 19:28pm


Honestly there aren't enough worthy albums that we didn't get in last time that I'm familiar with until 1989/the class of 1963, so I'm really considering putting off voting again until then, otherwise I'm going to have to submit a very partial ballot of:

Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um (1959)
Ornette Coleman - The Shape of Jazz to Come (1959)

Albums just aren't going to be big for a few years, and I'm just now familiarizing myself with 50's/pre-50's pop and jazz. I anticipate around 1963 and on though, because then I'm fully committed to this project.

Posted by Paul K on Friday, 11.12.10 @ 13:56pm


Here's my ballot for now.
Little Richard
High School Confidential
Come Fly With me
Anthology of american folk music
Mingus Ah Mingus
The Ventures
King Of The Delta Blues Singers
Pray With Little Richard
Kontakte
Link Wray And The Raymen
Free Jazz

The same way we did 100 artists, are we gonna do 100 albums?

Posted by GFW on Saturday, 11.13.10 @ 12:26pm


GFW, I do think the 100 albums compandium will be the same fashion as the 100 artists compandium. I have jotted down a draft list of 100 albums of importance and preference. I will warn you fellow posters, though; much of the albums is in the Lennon/McCartney/Harrison/Beatles orbit.

In addition, I have compiled a draft of the 12 albums to be inducted in our 1987 class. Would it be possible to list them on this site? Also, can we begin voting for albums in an official manner?

Watching and waiting in actuality and in thinking of a great Moody Blues album:),

Posted by Lax27 on Saturday, 11.13.10 @ 17:31pm


As last time, my albums votes are what I like.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 05:57am


Wrong word... My LIST is what I meant.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 11.14.10 @ 07:58am


Well, the song project is now up and running. I do not see why the album project should be put into the backburner. Would it be possible to simultaneously have the album and song projects be inducted upon? And if so, could I or others commence the voting? I realize we are near the holidays. Yet, if you have acccess to the internet, you can get involved at any time.

Drawing up a wishlist for Amazon.com to be decided (plug:),

So when does this start again?

Posted by Okay on Friday, 11.19.10 @ 12:31pm


Yeah really, this long wait has been a a major buzzkill...

Posted by Chalkie on Friday, 11.19.10 @ 12:52pm


Monday, when we are done with 1986 for the songs.

Posted by Gassman on Friday, 11.19.10 @ 13:56pm


We will be continuing with the album project later today when Gassman closes voting for the 1986 Songs class.

This will be our 2nd class of the albums project, the 1987 class if you will. Meaning albums that were released in 1961 or prior will be eligible for the HOF.

With that said, the following posts will show off the albums that were released in 1961 and thus will be newly eligible for the project.

For those wanting to see the albums already eligible for the HOF as of the first class, please look near the top of the page where the original list was made.


Hopefully soon, I will have a master list made on a separate website or a link of some sorts to make it easier for everyone to see all of the eligible albums in one place. The head of the website made that suggestion to me via-e-mail over the week, however I am struggling with doing that (my computer for some reason won't allow me to upload or download any Microsoft Word files of any kind. So if anyone has any suggestions on this front, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.


But anywhos, here are the albums that are now eligible for the Albums HOF....

Posted by Donnie on Monday, 11.22.10 @ 09:02am


Oh, I also want to point out that I didn't get to folk, traditional pop, and gospel in time, so if anyone knows of any albums in those genres that are eligible (they have to be released in 1961 or prior, no later) and that they want to vote then feel free to vote for it.

But the lists do cover blues, jazz, country, rock and roll/pop, and soul/R&B.

I will be off work tomorrow on Tuesday, so if everyone would like, I can do some more research on folk and traditional pop (I don't think we're missing much on gospel most likely) and add albums from those genres to the list of eligible albums. I'm planning on doing some more organzing on my artists list tomorrow as well, which will make my research efforts more smooth and easier in the future. But I can top off the folk and traditional pop genres as well, again if everyone would like.

I'm pretty sure we have some albums from Joan Baez, the Kingston Trio, and Frank Sinatra at least to consider.

I would have to second what Chalkie said in regards to Jazz albums. Jazz as a genere was producing much better albums at this time then Rock and Roll. We still have about 4 years before the golden age of Rock albums start. It would be criminal if some of these Jazz albums get passed over!

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 11.22.10 @ 15:48pm


Although I am not voting on the album project just yet, I've had a chance to look at the listings. I couldn't help notice that there was one album amongst the Jazz albums that was conspicuous by it's absence.

One of my favorite songs is "Poinciana", as performed by Ahmad Jamal. I voted for Jamal several times in the Rock Hall Revisited/Projected
section under the Influence section (admittedly not an influence, but it WAS my vote, anyhow). His 1958 album "But Not For Me" is an album I'd vote for, if I were participating here. Perhaps you may wish to include it here, & perhaps someone may find themselves interested at some point in delving further into it.

This will need to be updated again. Here are my picks for the Album project Revisited Class of 1987. By this point, the album starts to become far more important than the single recorded work.

Muddy Waters - Muddy Waters At Newport 1960
Robert Johnson - King Of The Delta Blues Singers
Fats Domino - This Is Fats
The Everly Brothers - self titled 1957 debut album
Hank Williams Sr. - Hank Williams Sings
Bobby "Blue" Bland - Two Steps From The Blues
Patsy Cline - self titled 1957 debut album
Frank Sinatra - Come Fly With Me
The Ventures - self titled 1961 album
Link Wray - Link Wray And The Ray Men
John Coltrane - Giant Steps
Nina Simone - Forbidden Fruit

A rather pleasing and influential list. American centered though it may be; the origins of what we consider popular modern rock and/or roll are well represented here.

Happy Thanksgiving; do not eat too much:),

I did list the Bob Dylan album. But I put him under the "Classic Rock" category. While Dylan was a folk artist for the first few years of his career, I'd say his overall career is defined as a rock musician (in the classic rock period), so his albums and songs will be listed under "classic rock" rather than folk.

And yes, a new year will start today.

As has been previously stated. Each Monday, the new class will begin. So once Gassman closes the voting today, the 1988 class will begin for both the songs and albums projects. That's the planned schedule from here on, unless Gassman decides to shorten the voting periods (which admittedly I hope doesn't happen lol. I'm struggling with a week's time to get these lists made, let alone 4-5 days).

Whoops, my bad Donnie. I didn't see that category up there. I would agree that Bob Dylan should be in classic rock.

The new voting period will start when I cloe this one at 3pm Eastern Time.

15 inductees? Is there going to be a tie-breaker?

Posted by Chalkie on Monday, 11.29.10 @ 13:30pm


Nope, I posted this in the song section about a week ago:

Also I have made the fallowing decision on ties for the album/song project:

- It seems to me that people are getting annoyed by tie breakers

- I have always decided to be a little less strict on rules for these projects because I felt like we did a really good job on the rules in Revisited/Projected

- All albums and songs tied at the end of the voting period will get in if the total number of inductions is at or under 15 albums, 28 songs and 13 early influence songs (3 extras)

- If the total number of inductions is over 15 albums, 28 songs or 13 early influence songs, then none of the albums/songs that are tied will be inducted that year

That is why we have only inducted 9 influence songs the last 2 years.

This starts the trend in which albums are just as, if not more, important than the singles released for radio and the jukebox. Again, my picks for the Album Project Revisited Class of 1988 is infested primarily with American artists. Yet, these are certainly great albums. Here are my album selections:

Ray Charles - Modern Sounds In Country And Western Music
Etta James - At Last!
Bill Haley - Rock Around The Clock
Gene Vincent - Blue Jean Bop
Miles Davis - Birth Of The Cool
Billie Holliday - Lady In Satin
Ritchie Valens - self-titled 1959 album
John Lee Hooker - I'm John Lee Hooker
Miles Davis - Sketches Of Spain
Dick Dale - Surfer's Choice
Peter, Paul, And Mary - self-titled 1962 album
The Supremes - Meet The Supremes

Those are my 12 albums for this induction class. Rest assured, there will be more to come. We are, though, making progress. I do hope I did not speak too soon on our project.

British Invasion coming in the next election:),

I am sorry that I have been unable to post a list of albums for 1963. My computer stopped working yesterday and with it went my list. I will try to produce a new list by tomorrow. It won't be that good, but it should have all of the major highlights for this year!

I do note I was going to present my albums to be inducted for the Revisited Class of 1989. I do apologize for that, since I have been busy with important prior committments. Well, in any case, here are the 12 albums I have selected for this induction cycle:

The Beatles - Please Please Me
The Beatles - With The Beatles
Bob Dylan - The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
Leadbelly - Leadbelly's Last Sessions
James Brown - James Brown Live At the Apollo
Buddy Holly - self-titled 1958 album
Nat "King" Cole - Unforgettable
Phil Spector - A Christmas Gift For You From Phiilies Records
Duke Ellington - Duke Ellington At Newport
Ben E. King - Don't Play That Song
Bob Dylan - self-titled 1962 album
John Coltrane - Africa/Brass

There they are, and a beginning to examining the importance of the album in popular rock in all forms. I would hope that more posters become involved as the weeks go by. It is getting a bit lonely out here.

Wondering what song Ben E. King did not want played,

Here is finally an album list!

1963:

Surfin' U.S.A. - The Beach Boys
Please Please Me - The Beatles
With The Beatles - The Beatles
LIve At The Harlem Square Club - Sam Cooke
Night Beat - Sam Cooke
Live At The Apollo - James Brown

Hopefully this list will hope those who have still yet to vote!

Also I really hope that we start to see more people voting, it doesn't take as long as you would think, especially the albums. We could really use more voters for both projects!

I'll probably continue to sit out the Song Project for a few more years for the simple reason that Rock and Roll has never really captured my interest in the 50's and early-60's.

As far as the era that we're in goes, I've always been more interested in Jazz, Blues, Country and the Experimental/Avant-Garde/Proto-Electronic music, so the Album Project is a better fit for me right now.

I do anticipate becoming active in the Song Project as we get closer the the mid-60s boom.

Well, on this day of official announcements from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation of the Class of 2011; it only seems fair to coincide that announcement with whom I have picked amongst albums for the Revisited Class of 1990. This is where albums start to foment their status as a legitimate art form.

The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night (U.K. track listing and film)
The Beatles - Beatles for Sale
The Beach Boys - All Summer Long
The Beach Boys - Shut Down Volume 2
Bob Dylan - self titled 1962 album
Bob Dylan - Another Side Of Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan - The Times They Are A-Changin
Chuck Berry - St. Louis To Liverpool
The Supremes - Where Did Our Love Go?
Sam Cooke - Night Beat
Sam Cooke - Sam Cooke Live At Harlem Square Club
Sam Cooke - Ain't That Good News

Well, here they are. The albums do focus moreso on artist importance than album importance. Yet, as I have mentioned before, artist and album excellence are intertwined.

Having a unique predicament of B related selections:),

This year and maybe next is the last year you probably can, after that it gets crazy until the 80's.

To Future Rock Legends:

Could you list as such:

The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night [UK]

I feel like that is important because the US version sucks in comparison.

We are now midway into the 1960s for albums. I now present my albums I have picked for the Revisited Class of 1991. These are highly important albums of high quality.

The Beatles - Help! (UK track listing)
The Beatles - Rubber Soul (UK track listing)
The Beach Boys - Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)
The Beach Boys - Surfin USA
The Who - The Who Sing My Generation (UK track listing)
The Byrds - Mr. Tambourine Man
Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited
Bob Dylan - Bringing It All Back Home
John Coltrane - A Love Supreme
Sam Cooke - Night Beat
The Rolling Stones - Out Of Our Heads
Herbie Hancock - Maiden Voyage

Well, here they are. It does slant towards jazz music. Yet, two of the more important jazz recordings came out in 1965, and thus should be observed. The next batch of albums get interesting in how the art of the album is formed.

Amazed at how fast time goes on,

Lax27

Green Day-"Dookie"
Green Day-"American Idiot"

That's it, for now.

:)

Posted by Brittany on Wednesday, 12.22.10 @ 22:08pm


Oh and in case you're wondering, just because I'm a crazy Green Day fan does not mean that I don't listen to other music, like The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, U2, The Verve, Oasis, etc. Green Day just happens to be my favorite band, sorry.

At least I know the song "Coconut" by Harry Nilsson.

What other 16 year old knows that song?

Posted by Brittany on Wednesday, 12.22.10 @ 22:10pm


How many 16 year olds even know who Harry Nilsson is?

I'm well aware of this. I'm not worried about it. As I said earlier, I don't want to be held accountable for filling every single spot on the ballot. I'll make my own decision as to how many I wish to vote for in a single year.

Would it be possible for the Album Project Revisited Class of 1991 to be listed at the top of this webpage? Hopefully, this will be rectified within the next few days.

Well, hope all of you had a well-enjoyable and plentiful holiday. With that said, here are my albums for the Revisited Class of 1992. Some very well-received albums have made the list here.

The Beatles - Revolver (UK track listing)
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
The Beach Boys - Surfin USA
The Rolling Stones - Aftermath (UK track listing)
Simon And Garfunkel - Sounds Of Silence
Simon And Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary And Thyme
Sam Cooke - Ain't That Good News
Donovan - Sunshine Superman
Donovan - What's Bin Did And What's Bin Hid
The Supremes - The Supremes Are A Go-Go
Bob Dylan - Blonde On Blonde
Frank Zappa - Freak Out

Here are the albums. Again, more of my personal preferences. But, some great breakthrough albums were made by 1966; a good deal of which are known, while others are under the radar.

Always vote for the UK track listing over the basterdized US prints,

Just to let everyone know I swapped The Otis Redding Dictionary of Soul: The Complete and Unbelievable for Maiden Voyage.

Posted by Greg F. on Tuesday, 12.28.10 @ 20:46pm


I think we are going to need a vote for what version of Aftermath by The Rolling Stones we are going to induct. Also we should probably do the same for Out of Our Heads. We can do this when we start the voting for 1967.

I personally think that the American versions are the best for both of them.

For Out of Our Heads:

- The American version was released first on July 30th compared to the British version which was released on September 24h
- The American version has "The Last Time" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" while the British version does not
- The American version was ranked 114th on Rolling Stone's Top 500 Album List

For Aftermath:

- Has American version has "Paint It, Black" while the British version has "Mothers Littler Helper" in its place
- The American version was ranked 108th on Rolling Stone's Top 500 Album List

Posted by Gassman on Tuesday, 12.28.10 @ 22:12pm


The US version has 5 votes right now while the UK version has none, so let's just go with that.

Oh and that's the US version of Aftermath

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Thursday, 12.30.10 @ 13:13pm


Paul - Bringing It all Back Home by Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited by Bob Dylan, A Love Supreme by John Coltrane and Otis Blue by Otis Redding was inducted last year. Not your fault, it hasn't been posted up above.

To everyone - I am going to be unable to create an album list for 1967 or do voting updates until a week from today, as I will be on vacation. I will be able to vote and check in daily, but I won't have time to do my duties. If someone could take over for me for the next week, that would be awesome!

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 12.30.10 @ 20:04pm


Ooops. Make that the US version of Animal Tracks, not the UK one.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Friday, 12.31.10 @ 05:08am


I'll have a list of albums finished by tomorrow night.

Posted by DC on Monday, 01.3.11 @ 02:12am


DC - Sounds good

To Everyone - If you could hold off on posting your votes until DC posts the album, that would be great!

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 01.3.11 @ 10:32am


If it pleases the website, I will now close the voting for the Album Project Revisited Class of 1992. Here, then, are our inductees:

The Beatles - Revolver (UK track listing)
The Rolling Stones - Aftermath (UK track listing)
The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Bob Dylan - Blonde On Blonde
Cream - Fresh Cream
The Byrds - Fifth Dimension
Simon And Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, And Thyme
Frank Zappa - Freak Out
The Mamas And The Papas - If You Can Believe Your Eyes And Ears
The Kinks - Face To Face

Well, there you are. Ten albums, not including 4 albums tied with 3 votes. Since the tiebreaker format needs to be tweaked considerably, but not necessarily right now; we bring you ten albums in our revisited project. All of them amongst the best albums of the era.

Having done my second closing of a vote (I presume:),

Hey all, I had a family emergency this evening so I didn't have a chance to finish the album list. I don't want to hold up the voting anymore, though, so check this page out for a list of albums released in 1967:

This is what I would have used anyway. I will still try to do one sometime tomorrow, but I'm off to bed right now.

Since my backlog votes aren't gaining any steam I'm going to vote for albums I want to that actually may have a shot and ignore my backlog this time around...

Days of Future Passed - The Moody Blues
Disraeli Gears - Cream
The Doors - The Doors
Surrealistic Pillow - Jefferson Airplane

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 01.5.11 @ 06:15am


Just a reminder that we're currently doing voting on the Rock Hall Projected page for the 45 Performers we inducted through the 2012 Ceremony that Cleveland so far has not. You rank them 1-45 and then that gets added to the comprehensive list. Once we get enough voters (say, about a dozen), I'll go from there to #100. I have a few ideas on how to get there and it should be fun.

Posted by Casper on Wednesday, 01.5.11 @ 08:34am


Tahvo - We got Out of Our Heads [US] by The Rolling Stones inducted a few years ago, so you get another vote.

Everyone - I would strongly recommend voting for I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You by Aretha Franklin. It is the album that helped make her a star and arguably the greatest female performer ever (along with Lady Soul).

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 01.5.11 @ 08:43am


Thanks for the notification Gassman, it that case replace it with "I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You" by Aretha Franklin, good call mentioning it

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 01.5.11 @ 09:27am


If I'm allowed to alter my votes:

Ditch The Who, The Doors and Hendrix. I can always come back to them, and at least one of them will definitely get it. I think they'll manage without me. Replace with I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You, The Piper At The Gates of Dawn and Procol Harum.

I am anal about stuff like this, so we should have a vote!

What version of Aftermath by The Rolling Stones should we induct?

Here is a link to the wiki page in case you don't know the differences:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aftermath_(The_Rolling_Stones_album)

We will end the voting for this with the 1968 albums/songs so we can have at least a full voting period considering that we are shortening those periods.

I personally am voting for the US version.

US version of Aftermath.

Posted by Sam on Friday, 01.7.11 @ 17:15pm


Hopefully I have made it before the purported deadline. Though I would have expected more voters. In any case, here are the albums I have voted for the Revisited Class of 1993. Much of these albums represent the mystical "Summer of Love" in 1967, a season of relative peace when it came to popular rock music:

The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour (UK track listing and CD expansion)
Pink Floyd - Piper At The Gates Of Dawn
The Moody Blues - Days Of Future Past
Aretha Franklin - I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You
Love - Forever Changes
Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow
Cream - Disraeli Gears
The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground And Nico {Peel Slowly And See}
Traffic - Mr. Fantasy
The Who - A Quick One
Procol Harum - self titles 1967 album

What a time and season that was. As the years have gone on, the world grew darker and uncertain. Yet, what was and is heard in our stereos and albums stood to make it known that the human spirit can be improved for ourselves and for others.

Take that last paragraph however you feel,

Axis: Bold As Love (1967) – The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Anyone know how this is done? Do we go the Revisited/Projected route and do a 24-hour tiebreaker vote?

Posted by Sam on Saturday, 01.8.11 @ 13:12pm


Sam- We aren't doing tie-breakers anymore. If there are two or three albums tied for the last post then they all get inducted. If there are more than 15 albums in contention than none of the tied albums are inducted.

So in this case, all three albums are inducted, and we move on to the next round, which will close on Thursday at 3 PM EST.

Before I get to voting for albums for the Revisited Class of 1994, I wanted to add a vote to which version of the Rolling Stones album "Aftermath" will be inducted in our Album Project.

I vote for the UK track listing. This is, after all, the programming of tracks for "Aftermath" that was intended to be heard. I do note that "Paint It, Black" was included in the American release. However, "Paint It, Black" was intended for release as a single in the UK, since The Rolling Stones had not recorded it for an album to be sold. Plus, "Mother's Little Helper", one of their better songs, is on the UK track listing, and the number of songs is increased from 11 in the US, to 14 in the UK. This includes "Out Of Time" and "Take It Or Leave It", two popular Stones songs that were not heard in the American release. Finally, the rather disjointted red and black album cover in the UK is more in tune with the bluesy and rauchy nature of the songs presented, as opposed to the colourful psychadelia in the US album cover.

What A drag it is to be sick (which I was these past few days:(,

Posted by Lax28 on Sunday, 01.9.11 @ 16:53pm


I'll vote for the uk version of Aftermath. Mother's Little Helper and Out of Time are two of my favourite Stones songs... and there's a longer running time in the UK version, so I don't get the appeal of the us version, really

Posted by Darrin A on Monday, 01.10.11 @ 00:50am


I can't sleep tonight so i thought I'd put an early vote tally together.

A couple notes:

Presuming that the rules for changing votes are the same as they were in Projected, I changed my vote for CCR's self titled to the Velvets' "White Light/White Heat", due simply to an oversight on my part when assembling my original ballot. The change is reflected in this tally.

Also, I recorded the vote for "We're Only in it for the Money" as it was cast, with Frank Zappa as the credited artist, however, I believe that the Mothers of Invention would be the correct credit. I didn't want to make any changes without input from the group and GFW, who cast the vote.

Beyond that...damn good group of records here. Not a single one whose induction I'd disagree with.

Wow. I'm actually really torn between voting for the US or UK version of Aftermath. I was going to vote for the US one but Darrin A and Lax were both very convincing in their support of the UK one. I'll do a bit more research on both and get back to you Gassman.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 01.10.11 @ 03:12am


Alright, after some deliberation I'm going to go with the UK version of Aftermath

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 01.10.11 @ 09:04am


DarinRG -

1) I am not going to be as strict on people changing votes for this project as I was for Revisited/Projected project. That is as long as there appears to be no abuses. I just think that people are more likely to forget albums and songs then they are for artists. If people start to abuse things, then I will change it back.

2) We're Only In It For The Money is by The Mothers of Invention, I don't think anyone would have an issue in changing it

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 01.10.11 @ 13:31pm


Change it if you want, i'm not really bothered.

Posted by GFW on Monday, 01.10.11 @ 13:42pm


also I was suprised by how fe votes electric ladyland has gotten. I always thought that it was regarded by most people as Hendrix's finest album (well better than axis at least)

Posted by GFW on Monday, 01.10.11 @ 13:46pm


I too am surprised by the lack of votes for Electric Ladyland, I would have assumed this would have been an automatic. We really need to get this in this year as it will only get harder if we have to wait.

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 01.10.11 @ 14:17pm


Good to know there is a shorter voting period. Maybe we can get this finished before the end of the year!

Here, then, are the 12 albums I have picked for the Revisited Class of 1994. Possibly starting this time, personal preferences will likely take precedence over historical notoriety. But then, is that not the whole point of this voting.

The Beatles - The White Album
Deep Purple - Shades Of Deep Purple
Deep Purple - The Book Of Taliesyn
The Zombies - Odyssey And Oracle
Traffic - Mr. Fantasy
Bob Dylan - John Wesley Harding
Frank Zappa - We're Only In It For The Money
Simon And Garfunkel - Bookends
Cream - Wheels Of Fire
Aretha Franklin - Aretha: Lady Soul
Procol Harum - self-titled 1967 album
The Band - Music From Big Pink

Well, here they are. Certainly a rather peaceful task to do, given the nature of life we all succumb to. Certainly these albums can brighten and enlighten the moods of any.

Vote number 9, vote number 9, vote number 9, vote number 9,

Does voting close at 3 p.m. Eastern again tomorrow?

Posted by Sam on Wednesday, 01.12.11 @ 16:55pm


Sam: Actually all of the albums receiving 3 votes wouldn't get in. In a perfect world we would only induct 12, yet if there is a tie for the last few spots I will allow all of them to be inducted if the total is 15 or less. If it is over 15 then only those tied for the end won't get in. If it results in us inducting 9 or less albums we will then go to tie breaker like the Revisited/Projected projected to get to 12. Just a way to speed up the process because I know that some people were getting annoyed with the tie-breakers. I will always be a little more softer on the rules for these projects then the Revisited/Projected.

Just Missed Out: Nico- Chelsea Girl (1967)
The Band- Music From Big Pink (1968)
The Rolling Stones- Beggar's Banquet (1968)
Silver Apples- Silver Apples (1968)

And I'll go with the US version of Aftermath (I had to think forever on that question, though. Really tough call).

Next year will be really tough for albums- Abbey Road, Dusty In Memphis, In The Court Of The Crimson King, Trout Mask Replica, Let It Bleed, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Tommy, Clouds, The Band, The Velvet Underground, In A Silent Way, Arthur (Or The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire), etc. That will probably be my ballot actually!

Yeah I miscounted the votes:

Aretha: Lady Soul by Aretha Franklin was not inducted.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 01.13.11 @ 15:30pm


Sam - Axis: Bold As Love by The Jimi Hendrix Experience was already inducted in 1993. So you have one more vote.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 01.13.11 @ 15:33pm


DC - Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon & Garfunkel was released on January 26th 1970, so you got one more vote. I think the confusion is that some of the songs were released as singles the pervious year as a way to promote the album.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 01.13.11 @ 15:41pm

1. Abbey Road – The Beatles

Thanks!


Also I am adding Aretha: Lady Soul by Aretha Franklin in place of Live/Dead by the Grateful Dead.

Replace Blood, Sweat, & Tears with Aretha: Lady Soul and also replace Chicago Transit Authority with Led Zeppelin II.

Posted by Greg F. on Thursday, 01.13.11 @ 21:35pm


It just occurred to me the one of the most important albums in the Krautrock cannon, Monster Movie (1969) - Can, is eligible this year. Since Abbey Road will deservedly be inducted without my help, I'm going to swap the two.

Posted by DarinRG on Thursday, 01.13.11 @ 22:08pm


Replace Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. by The Monkees with Monster Movie by Can.

Monster Movie, Can.

Oh and this (http://www.rateitall.com/t-2529-deserving-of-the-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame.aspx) is a dead average snubs queue, so you should check out mine instead. It's on the Cure page, and my Top 50 (with help from Jim) is far better than theirs.

There's a typo at the top of the page under the album's we inducted, "Beggars Banquet" is just labeled as "Beggar"

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Sunday, 01.16.11 @ 08:41am


Hopefully it's not too late. Please take away my vote for In The Court Of The Crimson King and replace it with one for The Stooges

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 01.16.11 @ 15:05pm


Before this is too late, I will now present the albums I have inducted for the Revisited Class of 1995. The end of the 1960s, and the beginning of the 1970s effectively. Or, as Don Henley and others would attest, the end of optimism and the beginning of decadence. Take your pick; they both fit.

The Beatles - Yellow Submarine
The Beatles - Abbey Road
King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King
The Who - A Quick One
The Who - Tommy
Neil Young - Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
Procol Harum - self titled 1967 album
Aretha Franklin - Aretha: Lady Soul
Dusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis
Silver Apples - self titled 1968 album
Can - Monster Movie
The Band - self titled 1969 album

Well, there you have it. Albums only get more interesting and provocative as the years go by. I am looking forward to the weeks ahead.

Every vote counts in large amounts:),

Was that Depeche Mode related play-on-words intentional or random? Good votes anyhow.

Last call for lists in our ranking of the 45 performers that we feel already should be inducted over on our Rock Hall Projected page. We will be moving on after this Friday to the next section of the project which will consist of weekly voting until we get our Top 100.

Posted by Casper on Monday, 01.17.11 @ 11:15am


I'm sorry but I'm currently bogged down with schoolwork, therefore I have been (and will most likely be) unable to continue participating in this project (for the time being, anyways). Good luck, be careful with your choices and I hope you keep my stern lectures and grievances in mind when voting.

Thinking on it some more, as much as I love Tim Buckley's "Starsailor", I can't justify voting for it over some of the other choices out there. I'm going to replace that vote with Van Morrison's "Moondance".

To Future Rock Legends - Just a heads up, but we ended up inducting the American version of Aftermath by The Rolling Stones and Aretha: Lady Soul by Aretha Franklin unfortunately was not inducted in 1994.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 01.19.11 @ 22:57pm


Just a reminder to DC and Lax28 that you both have yet to vote on the album side.

Also, it would be nice if we could get more voters on this project.

Posted by Gassman on Friday, 01.21.11 @ 13:43pm


You are correct, Gassman. We need more voters on this project, akin to how voting increase, myself included, with the continuation of the Revisited Rock Hall Project. I concur because without a consensus, we will likely have personal preferences exclusively for induction; and that would be a problem.

Now, here are the albums I have picked for the Revisited Class of 1996. These are well done albums of importance and quality.

The Beatles - Let It Be
John Lennon - John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band
George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
Neil Young - After The Gold Rush
Crosby, Stills, Nash, And Young - Deja Vu
Pink Floyd - Atom Heart Mother
Miles Davis - Bitches Brew
Dusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis
Simon And Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water
Carlos Santana - Abraxas
Deep Purple - In Rock
The Who - The Who Sell Out

Those are the 12 that I have picked. I will attempt to not be this late in the voting again. And hopefully more voters will participate in the near future.

More votes and albums to come,

Lax28

Yeah, someone please cast a ballot, no matter who you vote for. Inducting only 10 albums considering the eligible field, especially the worthy, uninducted, backlog would really be a low water mark for this project.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 01.23.11 @ 01:15am


Seeing that we have been unable to induct any post 1967 Velvet Underground albums & I am guessing that most people agree that all 4 of there albums are worthy of induction, I propose the fallowing solution.

Everyone who supports the eventual induction of all 4 Velvet Underground albums should vote:

White Light/White Heat - 1996
The Velvet Underground - 1997
Loaded - 1998

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 01.23.11 @ 01:23am


The Velvets are my issue #1. My issue #2 is our inability to induct a Stooges album. Granted, Raw Power was their best and we're not there yet, but they aren't a band that deserves a single token induction.

I won't pitch a fit if we don't induct another Can or Nick Drake record, though they both have multiple deserving titles, but the treatment of VU and the Stooges is a bit disturbing so far. These are landmark bands who recorded landnmark albums every time they set foot in the studio.

Posted by DarinRG on Sunday, 01.23.11 @ 01:35am


I feel the same way about the Velvet Underground. I think the problem is that we don't have a consensus on which album(s) we should induct next. I personally think that Loaded should be our choice, but obviously people think otherwise. That's why I think the solution I proposed would work.

I also agree that The Stooges are more important then to just get a token induction, but I am still probably waiting until Raw Power because there are just too many good albums right now that I can't see voting for The Stooges or Fun House. The Stooges would have gotten my vote in 1969 if we would have been able to get Aretha: Lady Soul in the year before.

I have Tago Mago by Can and Pink Moon by Nick Drake on my future queue, but it will probably be a while before I could see myself voting for either, which is unfortunate because they are both great albums.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 01.23.11 @ 01:47am


Two other artists I'd like to throw into the discussion are Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman.

For Joni Mitchell, Clouds and Ladies Of The Canyon are eligible (and worthy) but Blue will be eligible this round. I'd say Blue and Court And Spark (1974 I believe) are her best and the most worthy, but I think all four should be considered.

Also, 12 Songs by Randy Newman is absolutely essential for induction. Sail Away will be eligible the round after this one, and that is probably his greatest album, but both are essential. We will also need to induct the title track from Sail Away into the song project.

Good to see some support for Hot Buttered Soul by Isaac Hayes, by the way. Before this is all said and done we need to induct that one and Black Moses, which is newly eligible this year.

Don't know wh yDonnie isn't voting, I see him post on facebook everyday.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 01.23.11 @ 05:41am


Would anybody object if we did tie breaking voting this year? I would really hate to only induct 10 albums.

If we have a tie breaker it would be the same as revisited/projected as we would rank all the albums tied, two with the most points gets in.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 01.23.11 @ 11:41am


I would be fine with a tie breaker this year.

Posted by Greg F. on Sunday, 01.23.11 @ 11:58am


That's fine. 40 minutes to go!

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 01.23.11 @ 12:19pm


I would be fine with a tie-breaker as well. As long as it doesn't hold up the Song project. We could just make the next album round four days so that the two projects end at the same time. The last couple days are usually dead anyway so it doesn't really matter.

Posted by DC on Sunday, 01.23.11 @ 12:36pm


I agree with DC

1. Trout Mask Replica (1969) - Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
2. Green River (1969) - Creedence Clearwater Revival
3. Let It Be (1970) - The Beatles
4. Aretha: Lady Soul (1968) - Aretha Franklin
5. The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society (1968) - The Kinks
6. Led Zeppelin III (1970) - Led Zeppelin
7. Dusty In Memphis (1969) - Dusty Springfield

Finally, a tie-breaker. We are definitely going to need these in the induction classes to come.

Here are my rankings of which albums should be inducted. I am confident that the top two will be included in the induction class.

The Beatles - Let It Be
Aretha Franklin - Aretha: Lady Soul
Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin III
The Kinks - The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Green River
Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica

Once again, please do not discard this vote due to Let It Be being amongst my top two. I am certain that all 7 albums will eventually be inducted, though.

Hoping that I have passed the audition,

Posted by GFW on Monday, 01.24.11 @ 13:17pm


Since the tiebreaker ended 26 minutes ago, does this mean Village Green, Green River and Led Zeppelin III all go in? Or do we need someone to break the tiebreaker's tiebreaker?

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 01.24.11 @ 13:26pm

Posted by Marksman on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 11:54am


I would like to push for some post Pet Sounds albums by The Beach Boys. Any these albums are worthy for consideration: Friends (1968), Sunflower (1970), Surf's Up (1971), and Holland (1973). I feel that these albums are amoung the best examples of the post Pet Sounds era of The Beach Boys. I know Holland isn't eligible yet but I highly suggest it when it is.

Posted by Greg F. on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 13:05pm


Good call Greg F. I think I'll vote for Surf's Up next year.

I would also like people to take a second look at Blue Cheer's debut 1968 album Vincebus Eruptum. Here's a little piece from wikipedia on the album:

"Blue Cheer's debut album has widely been held in high regard by critics. Writing for music website allmusic, Mark Deming described Vincebus Eruptum as 'a glorious celebration of rock & roll primitivism run through enough Marshall amps to deafen an army', praising the band's 'sound and fury' as one of the founding movements of heavy metal.[8] The album has also been identified as an "All Music Guide Album Pick", denoting that it is one of the top albums recommended by the allmusic critics.[8] Pitchfork reviewer Alexander Linhardt gave the album nine out of a maximum ten points, although noted that the album was less structured and more experimental than its successor Outsideinside.[9] Sputnikmusic offered the song an 'Excellent' rating of four out of five, with reviewer Joe Katz praising the album as 'one of the heaviest blues albums in existence', noting the 'Raw production and quality [which] keep it fresh in the world of squeaky clean classic rock sounds.'[10]
Online music service Rhapsody included Vincebus Eruptum in its list of the "10 Essential Proto-Metal Albums", suggesting that the band "not only inspired the term 'power trio,' they practically invented heavy metal."[11]"

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 13:31pm


I just might vote for Blue Cheer's debut album as well. When it comes those Beach Boys albums I suggested I would likely vote for Sunflower or Friends next round because their stronger albums. I would definitely be voting for Holland when it becomes eligible in 1999.

Posted by Greg F. on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 13:54pm


Yeah, I might actually vote for Sunflower but I haven't ruled out Friends as well and I'll definitely consider Holland when it's eligible.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 14:09pm


Wild Honey is another great album from the post Pet Sounds era. I have been back and forth with this one. This one is definitely worth consideration. Basically any post Pet Sounds album up to Holland with the exception of 20/20 are worth consideration.

Posted by Greg F. on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 14:17pm


I love "Here Comes the Night" off Wild Honey

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 14:26pm


I wouldn't mind seeing Chicago Transit Authority, Chicago II, and Chicago III getting some consideration as well. Those albums are probably Chicago's best.

Posted by Greg F. on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 15:23pm


I would definitely support Chicago Transit Authority and Chicago II, both were very close to getting votes for me in 1969 and 1970.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 15:39pm


If I have room next round I would vote for either one. I would more likely vote for Chicago Transit Authority. But I would support all three and probably not vote for any other Chicago album that followed Chicago III.

Posted by Greg F. on Wednesday, 01.26.11 @ 16:40pm


After careful consideration, I have chosen the albums I have picked for the Revisited Class of 1997. Hopefully these will get added to the vote numbers already in place. There are, of course, 12 of them; a fine listener's dozen if I do say so myself.


John Lennon - Imagine
George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
The Beatles - Let It Be
Genesis - Nursery Cryme
Can - Tago Mago
Pink Floyd - Meddle
Yes - Fragile
The Beach Boys - Sunflower
Emerson, Lake And Palmer - self titled 1970 album
Emerson, Lake And Palmer - Pictures At An Exhibition
Electric Light Orchestra - No Answer
Joni Mitchell - Blue

These are again more personal preferences. Yet, some of these albums really deserve induction in this album project we got going. I do believe these and other future albums to consider will be inducted in this project. I will certainly keep up with the votes ahead.

Researching the battle at Marston More for authenticity:),

"I would also like people to take a second look at Blue Cheer's debut 1968 album Vincebus Eruptum." - Tahvo

I actually voted for that when it became eligible, but nobody else did, which is why I haven't since. If other people are going to I'll make the effort to do so. In a similar vein, don't forget about Truth and In Rock.

"Sam - I am surprised that you didn't vote for Fragile by Yes. Just curious why?" - Gassman

There have been other things I've been trying to push, and I thought it might get in without my help. If it doesn't get in this year I'll vote for it until it does. When does voting close?

Posted by Sam on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 09:26am


Their is so much more underrated bands that deserve so much more credit than Radiohead. I mean why do they deserve all the credit??? And people call PJ posers...

Posted by Old PJ Fan on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 10:53am


Sam -

Voting closes tomorrow at 3pm Eastern

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 11:05am


I'll be voting for Sunflower next round. This first of the post Pet Sounds albums I'm trying to push for. I would also push for Friends, Surf's Up, and Holland after Sunflower gets in. Would anyone be interested in joining me for the push for Sunflower if it doesn't get this round? If Sunflower gets enough votes to make it in this round I will be voting for Friends.

Posted by Greg F. on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 14:15pm


I'll vote for Sunflower next round

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 14:55pm


Also, I'll be voting for Vincebus Eruptum next round, so if there's anybody else who is willing to support it, let's try and gather enough votes to get it in. And Sam, I believe Machine Head is eligible next year so I'll probably be voting for that instead of In Rock but I'll seriously consider In Rock after that and I'll also try and fit Truth in somewhere, hopefully soon.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 15:00pm


I'll vote for Vincebus Eruptum next round and Machine Head also.

Posted by Greg F. on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 15:13pm


Vincebus Eruptum is definitely on my radar. I won't get to it next year, as I don't think I'll even have room for all of the first ballot choices I want to go with for 1972, but I will vote for it shortly.

Posted by DarinRG on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 16:39pm


"I mean why do they deserve all the credit???"

First, credit for what? Second, who said they did? Third, what in the name of Thom Yorke's funny eye does that have to do with this thread?

Posted by Sam on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 16:56pm


I'll see what I can do, Tahvo.

Posted by Sam on Thursday, 01.27.11 @ 16:57pm


Oh my bad, I ment to post this in the Radiohead thread, real sorry about that.

Posted by Sam on Friday, 01.28.11 @ 15:57pm


Sam - I am kinda confused, what is your top vote? L.A. Woman or Trout Mask Replica?

Posted by Gassman on Friday, 01.28.11 @ 16:10pm


That's the order I'm putting them in, so for example Who's Next is getting 3 points from me.

Posted by Sam on Friday, 01.28.11 @ 16:27pm


Trout Mask Replica is the top vote.

Posted by Sam on Friday, 01.28.11 @ 16:47pm

A 12-way tiebreaker? Well, here are my rankings.

George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
Can - Tago Mago
Marvin Gaye - What's Going On
Carole King - Tapestry
The Who - Who's Next
The Doors - L. A. Woman
The Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers
The Velvet Underground - White Light/White Heat
The Velvet Underground - self titled 1969 album
The Allman Brothers Band - Live At Fillmore East
Captain Beefheart - Trout mask Replica

This is not, I must say, a revised voting on my part. It is to end this tie-breaker. We need more participants.

Happy voting for now and in the months ahead,

Lax28

Posted by Lax28 on Friday, 01.28.11 @ 20:27pm


GFW - You forgot to rank What's Going On by Marvin Gaye

Lax28 - You forgot to rank Hunky Dory by David Bowie

I will have to place both of those albums in last if you don't respond by 3pm Eastern time tomorrow.

Posted by Gassman on Saturday, 01.29.11 @ 01:05am


Forgot to include it. It's below Velvet Underground

Posted by GFW on Saturday, 01.29.11 @ 05:38am


Actually, I don't think it would be fair to the album left out to only get one point if someone forgets to vote for it. So, from now on if you forget something in a tie breaker, that forgotten item will be placed in the middle of your rankings. If there is an even number it will be the higher number (ex. 12 items tied, forgotten item would go 6th)

We absolutely MUST get "The Harder They Come" in. It's probably the most imprtannt reggae album their is and raised it from a Jamaican only phenomonon to a form of music known around the world.

Darrin A - We got Sticky Fingers by The Rolling Stones in last year. Did you mean to vote for Exile On Main St. also by The Rolling Stones instead?

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 01.30.11 @ 09:01am


Also I just realized that Greetings From Asbury Park, N.J. by Bruce Springsteen was actually released on January 5th 1973, so DarinRG and I each get one vote back.

My one unused vote will go for #1 Record by Big Star

Excellent.

At the moment we'd have a six-way tiebreaker, which would be hard to screw up.

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 01.30.11 @ 10:52am


Sticky Fingers made in last time, as Gassman pointed out (altho, unless I'm mistaken, it was not listed on Gassman's post listing the inductees)

so I would like to use my final vote for Something Else by the Kinks

A 5 star calibre album we have snubbed...

Posted by Darrin A on Sunday, 01.30.11 @ 13:37pm


I'll throw my extra vote to "Harvest".

Before I forget to add a list at the last inoportune minute, I have now picked the 12 albums I have inducted into the Revisited Class of 1998. Here they are in order of no importance:

Yes - Fragile
Yes - Close To The Edge
Deep Purple - Machine Head
Deep Purple - In Rock
The Beach Boys - Sunflower
Roxy Music - self titled 1972 album
Pink Floyd - Meddle
Neil Young - Harvest
David Bowie - The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars
The Rolling Stones - Exile On Main Street
Stevie Wonder - Talking Book
Aretha Franklin - Aretha: Lady Soul

Interesting this is. The first album selection in a long while that I did not include a Beatles album of any sort. Well, I am sure it will be rectified in the next round of voting; at least with Lennon, McCartney, and Harrison individual outputs.

Songs to come tomorrow, so stay tuned:),

Also, next year could we make a push for one of the greatest live albums of all time, "Live At Leeds" by The Who?

Posted by GFW on Monday, 01.31.11 @ 01:04am


We could do that. I may consider voting for Live At Leeds next. Also I would like to eventually see a push for The Who Sellout. Probably their first masterpiece.

Does anybody have any ideas on how we could try to up the involvement of this side of the project? I am really happy about the number of voters we have on the Song Project, but I feel like this side dosen't have as much activity. Any ideas???

Posted by Gassman on Tuesday, 02.1.11 @ 11:30am


Is everyone involved in The Song Project voting here? That's my only suggestion, really.

By the way, this is part funny, part stupid:

Posted by Gassman on Tuesday, 02.1.11 @ 11:30am
-------------------------------------------------

I'll be honest w/you: I haven't voted in either of these projects since the 1968 election, I believe. You folks have gone bonkers obsessing over "the proper" folks getting in. I saw this over on the Projected page when we were voting for acts. I know I made a joke about pacts forming, saying something to the effect that "this is how World War I began". I was joking then, but I've got to tell you, I didn't realize it would play itself out over here - and earlier, I might add.

I'll lay it out for everyone here: I approached the album side on a vaguely serious note, voting for the big acts. On the other side of the equation, I saw the song side of the project as a great way to get weird & vote for a few acts that were distinct to the times. I was the guy who tossed out votes for Sagittarius, Kaleidoscope, The 23rd Turnoff, The Focus Three, The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, etc.

The problem is, I almost feel guilt-ridden over not voting for someone when some people start screaming about whom we're missing. I (was) shaping my voting so that if anyone took a look at how I voted, they'd see a bunch of non-traditional voting on one side, & a bunch of traditional voting on the other.

I'll gladly jump back in ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FRAY, providing that I don't get hammered w/folks screaming about backlogs & vote trading. I'm going to cast my votes for Freedom, Stray Dog, Tin House, Medicine Head, McKendree Spring, Gospel Oak, Sir Lord Baltimore, etc. I'm gonna get all nice & weird in the 80's & 90's as well. You don't have to do it my way AT ALL. Just know, though, that if one person jumps on my case for not voting for a "Correct" act, I'm outta here again. It's all supposed to be in fun, so we cool w/that?

"Just know, though, that if one person jumps on my case for not voting for a "Correct" act, I'm outta here again."

Cool, though I'll warn you I'll have my own things to push throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's. However, if someone decided to push a Backstreet Boys or Take That album over Siamese Dream (which I'm listening to right now) I'll be less likely to get indignant about it as I would've in the Rock Hall project, since this kind of project allows for more personal taste over significance kind of thing. Just remind me of this if I relapse.

By the way - I very rarely ask anyone to go back & add something that I've missed, or change something.

That being said, if the person doing the tallying could do me a favor - I left off Montrose's debut for 1973. Could you please do me a favor and add it in. Thank you.

Posted by Cheesecrop on Wednesday, 02.2.11 @ 18:47pm


I'm very surprised that there is little support for Herbie Hancock- Head Hunters at the moment. I thought it would a top vote getter. I honestly hope that Head Hunters gets more support because this album was a major influence on funk.

If you haven't already, be sure to vote in our weekly ranking/extension of the 100 Best Artists that are currently not enshrined in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's pretty self explanatory and located over in the Rock Hall Projected comments.

Because, prosopagnosiac, sometimes I find I forgot an album, or I no longer wish to vote for an album and instead push for another one.
Also MC you're about 17 years ahead of everyone else.

Posted by GFW on Friday, 02.4.11 @ 15:04pm


Well, we seem to know what MC has considered for the Projected Class of 2016. Many of which are some of the better albums of the past 20 years.

Now, on to the 12 albums I have picked for the Revisited Class of 1999. Hopefully, some of these albums do get inducted this time out.

Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon
Sir Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Roxy Music - For Your Pleasure
Genesis - Selling England By The Pound
The Beach Boys - Holland
Procol Harum - self titled 1967 album
Queen - self titled 1973 album
Yes - Tales From Topographic Oceans
Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Babies
Led Zeppelin - Houses Of the Holy
The Stooges - Raw Power
Aretha Franklin - Aretha: Lady Soul

It has taken a while for an Aretha Franklin album to be inducted. Hopefully we get one in in this induction cycle. Certainly more albums are to come.

I'm not perfect; are you?:),

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Sunday, 02.6.11 @ 04:58am

One of the other good things about next year is that there isn't a whole lot of really good albums that were released. 1974 was relatively weak compared to the rest of the 70's in my opinion.

Here is my queue for next year, in my order of importance:

1. Autobahn – Kraftwerk
2. Court And Spark – Joni Mitchell
3. The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway – Genesis
4. Late For The Skye – Jackson Browne
5. Sheer Heart Attack – Queen
6. Get Your Wings – Aerosmith
7. Grieves Angel – Gram Parsons
---------------------------------
8. 461 Ocean Boulevard – Eric Clapton
9. Fulfillingness’ Fist Finale – Stevie Wonder
10. On The Boarder – Eagles
11. Natty Dread – Bob Marley & The Wailers
12. Kiss – Kiss

That means I will be able to vote for 5 albums from past years, which is the most I have been able to vote for since 1965 or 1966.

Both you and Tahvo forgot to mention that Electric Light Orchestra's "Eldorado, A Symphony" which is also from 1974, so thus eligible next year as well.

Posted by Rick Vendl II on Sunday, 02.6.11 @ 12:58pm


I'll vote for Autobahn if its in trouble of not making it first ballot, but I doubt it will.

I'll stump pretty heavily for KISS's debut, an absolutely influential rock classic with at least half the songs having been covered by artists at some point.

Also, I think Bad Company's debut needs a shout out.

Posted by Jim on Sunday, 02.6.11 @ 14:17pm


My vote:

Elton John- Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (1973)
Led Zeppelin- Houses Of The Holy (1973)
Pink Floyd- Dark Side Of The Moon (1973)
The Stooges- Raw Power (1973)
Nick Drake- Pink Moon (1972)
Jethro Tull- Thick As A Brick (1972)

Randy Newman- 12 Songs (1970)
James Taylor- Sweet Baby James (1970)
Dusty Springfield- Dusty In Memphis (1969)

Not even one vote for Sail Away? Insane.

BTW, was I on time this time?

I noticed you closed the voting for 1972 considerably earlier than the 8pm that you said and apparently didn't count my votes. That Thursday at @5pm was the first time I had seen this project and had not been aware of it earlier.

You say you want more participation but now I'm wondering about that.

Posted by Mike Scott on Sunday, 02.6.11 @ 16:49pm


Mike Scott - We always close the voting at 3pm Eastern time. You are on time this week!

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 02.6.11 @ 21:43pm


It will probably be a little bit before I can get an album list. I have been really busy this weekend and I am going to be crazy busy until Tuesday night. Yet have no fear, I will have a list for people who need one!

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 02.6.11 @ 23:55pm


Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon (1973) 11
Elton John- Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (1973) 10
Led Zeppelin- Houses of the Holy (1973) 8
Alice Cooper – Billion Dollar Babies (1973) 7
The Stooges- Raw Power (1973) 7
Aretha Franklin –Aretha: Lady Soul (1968) 7
Stevie Wonder- Innervisions (1973) 6
The Kinks – Something Else For The Kinks (1967) 5
Roxy Music- For Your Pleasure (1973) 5
Creedence Clearwater Revival – Cosmo’s Factory (1970) 5
Lynyrd Skynyrd - Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd (1973) 5
The Who – Quadrophenia (1973) 5

The class as it stands.

Posted by GFW on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 00:56am


"Something Else For The Kinks?" I'm pretty sure it's "Something Else By The Kinks."

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 02:28am


I'm puzzled by the lack of support for the album "Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs" - Derek and the Dominos (1970)

Is this not one of the greatest albums ever? I thought it was pretty high up there... hmmm.

Posted by Darrin A on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 06:54am


I forgot Tahvo. I'm pretty sure most people will grasp what it is.
Darrin: I was suprised by that as well, Layla and Let it Be, both perfectly deserving albums are snubbed.

Posted by GFW on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 09:56am


I'll vote for both Let It Be by The Beatles and Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs by Derek & The Dominos if people vote for Loaded by The Velvet Underground. I want all three albums to get in and I think that would be a fair trade.

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 10:26am


No worries GFW

Also, I can try and fit Layla, Loaded and Let It Be on my ballot next round, I doubt I can fit all 3 as I currently have 16 albums lined up that I really want to vote for (excluding them) but I'll definitely try and fit at least two of them.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 10:50am


Oh and since it looks like it's falling short again, can we try and get Blue Cheer's Vincebus Eruptum in next year? It's pretty much essential listening for any hard rock or heavy metal fan, at least IMO.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 10:56am


I would vote for Let It Be, Loaded, and Layla but I can't fit them in this round.

Albums I would to see support for this round:
Queen- Queen II
Captain Beefheart- Trout Mask Replica
Robert Wyatt- Rock Bottom
Herbie Hancock- Head Hunters

Posted by Greg F. on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 11:24am


OK I just found room for one of the three albums that GFW named. I'll vote Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs next round. If Let It Be and Loaded don't make it this next round I'll try to get them in the following round.

I'll get back to supporting In Rock next year but I really want to support the Sparks album. Initially I was going to vote for Propaganda as well but had no room on my ballot

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 14:56pm


GFW, the Queen album with Stone Cold Crazy on it is Sheer Heart Attack. So I'm guessing you mean that. There's no album album titled Stone Cold Crazy.

Posted by Greg F. on Monday, 02.7.11 @ 15:00pm


GFW - I'll vote for The Velvet Underground by The Velvet Underground next year if you vote for Loaded this year.

Well 10 of the Albums that I voted for last time got in, and (personal taste aside) there aren't a whole lot of deserving new albums this time around. That said, for 1974 I've decided to go mostly for backlogged albums that other voters have been supporting for awhile.

Well, we are nearing a watershed moment in albums. I do apologize that I have been unable to make as many posts as could be between the album and song projects, and the Projected Rock Hall rankings. I will get involved with the rankings at a later time. Right now, I have picked the 12 albums to induct for the Revisited Class of 2000. Some very good albums are in this list.


Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
The Beatles - Let It Be
Queen - Sheer Heart Attack
Queen - Queen II
The Beach Boys - Holland
Procol Harum - self titled 1967 album
Rush - self titled 1974 album
Brian Eno - Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)
Brian Eno - Here Come The Warm Jets
Kraftwerk - Autobahn
The Velvet Underground - Loaded
Eric Clapton and Duane Allman - Layla And Other Assorted Love Songs

Great albums, all of them. I will return shortly by the next day to announce the 30 songs for the Revisited Class of 2000 that I have picked, and to discuss the announced presenters for the new 2011 real Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation inductees. I am looking forward to that ceremony, polished or not polished.


This is only knock and know-all, though I like it:),

If GFW's previous tally was correct, then my vote for Court And Spark gives it 3. I put the artist before the title. Sorry about that.

Posted by classicrocker on Friday, 02.11.11 @ 12:19pm


My vote:

Gram Parsons- Grievous Angel (1974)
Joni Mitchell- Court And Spark (1974)
Herbie Hancock- Head Hunters (1973)
Nick Drake- Pink Moon (1972)
Jethro Tull- Thick As A Brick (1972)
Randy Newman- Sail Away (1972)
Carole King- Tapestry (1971)
Leonard Cohen- Songs Of Love And Hate (1971)
Sly & The Family Stone- There's A Riot Goin' On (1971)
Randy Newman- 12 Songs (1970)
James Taylor- Sweet Baby James (1970)
Dusty Springfield- Dusty In Memphis (1969)

Once again, not even one vote for Sail Away? Dusty In Memphis and Tapestry still not in? Step away from the male-oriented classic rock guys, seriously. Insane.

Posted by DC on Friday, 02.11.11 @ 12:51pm


I was planning on voting for both Tapestry and There's a Riot Goin' On next round, as well as Superfly by Curtis Mayfield. I didn't realize that Tapestry wasn't in until classicrocker brought it up, so thanks for pointing that out!

I'll see if I can find room for Sail Away too. There are 7 1975 albums that I want to vote for next year, but I could probably switch out a shoe-in album for Sail Away. I will continue voting for The Who Sell Out and Willie and the Poor Boys until they get in. I'm a classic rock homer at heart, I can't help it. Eventually they should get more than 2 votes!

Also we need some rperesentation of Neu here. They are just as deserving as Can yet they are always snubbed. I suggest that we induct Neu 75. Though to be honest I don't care which one, as long as we recognize Neu.

"Sam - We did induct The Harder They Come which is a great mix of pre-Marley reggae acts including Jimmy Cliff, Toots & The Maytals, The Melodians & Desmond Dekker."

Forgot, my apologies. However, we do need to get some Marley in; to fail to do so would severely damage our credibility.

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 02.13.11 @ 06:01am


Just curious: Would anybody be trying to induct Saturday Night Fever when it becomes eligible, or does it count as a compilation?

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 02.13.11 @ 06:16am


If marley is a concern then exodus is eligible very soon.
I'm guessing saturday night fever counts, or else the harder they come wouldn't be.

Posted by GFW on Sunday, 02.13.11 @ 06:51am


Yeah I agree with GFW. If we inducted the Harder They Come, it would make no sense to exclude Saturday Night Fever.

Sam/GFW/Tahvo - Yeah I have no problem inducting soundtracks that are essentially compilations but help represent an era of music in which it was released like The Harder They Come or Saturday Night Fever. Yet I would draw the line for the soundtracks from Pulp Fiction or Forest Gump (both awesome soundtracks) because they don't represent an era of music from when the movie was released.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 02.13.11 @ 09:06am


That certainly makes sense, Gassman. I agree with your reasoning.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Sunday, 02.13.11 @ 09:33am


Sam - I totally agree that we need induct a Bob Marley album. I am personally waiting until Exodus in 1977, which is in my opinion his best album. There are like 6 songs off that album that I could see myself voting for in the Songs Project, lol!

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 02.13.11 @ 10:11am


Does anybody here plan on getting any Electric Light Orchestra albums inducted and if so which ones?

In my opinion these deserve serious consideration:

No Answer (1972)
Eldorado, A Symphony (1974)
A New World Record (1976)
Out of the Blue (1977)
Discovery (1979), first time an entire album had music videos made for every song.
Xanadu (1980), The film was cheesy, however its soundtrack was a multi-platinum smash hit.
Time (1981)

I have got open ballot spots that can back 3 multiple poster's picks this year.

Posted by Rick Vendl II on Sunday, 02.13.11 @ 12:11pm


I'll consider New World Record, Out of the Blue, Discovery, and Time when they become eligible.

Posted by Greg F. on Sunday, 02.13.11 @ 12:37pm


Rick, I'll vote for A New World Record and Discovery in the near future and I'll consider the others as well.

I am still really bummed by the fact that Blood On The Tracks only has two votes as of right now. This is the only Bob Dylan of the 1970's that can compete with his releases of the 1960's. To me this would be like Abbey Road or Led Zeppelin IV not getting in on the first ballot, it would be that big of a snub!

Excellent. I agree Gassman, but don't worry; I think some more people will come along and bump it up. If it doesn't make it I'll vote for it next year; I just figured it wouldn't need my help.

I would like to push for Laura Nyro- Eli and the Thirteenth Confession next round. I'm very surprised that no one has voted for it yet.

Posted by Greg F. on Monday, 02.14.11 @ 13:21pm


While a lot of great albums become eligible next year, one that I would like to put forth is The Sun Sessions by Elvis Presley. It was one of the first collections to compile most of his early and arguably this most important hits into one package. Rolling Stone has it listed as the 11th greatest album of all time while VH1 ranked it 21st greatest album of all time. I normally don't like inducting compilation albums but this is an exception and it kosher within our rules regarding compilation albums.

Here is a track listing for those who are interested:

"That's All Right"
"Blue Moon of Kentucky"
"I Don't Care if the Sun Don't Shine"
"Good Rockin' Tonight"
"Milkcow Blues Boogie"
"You're a Heartbreaker"
"I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone"
"Baby Let's Play House"
"Mystery Train"
"I Forgot to Remember to Forget"
"I'll Never Let You Go (Little Darlin')"
"I Love You Because"
"Trying to Get to You"
"Blue Moon"
"Just Because"
"I Love You Because"

Cool. However, those 4 vote ones: Would we go to a tiebreaker to get two of them or would we just induct all four?

We would just induct all 4, we are only doing tiebreakers if we are short of 12 albums.

Also, replace my vote for Rock Bottom with Elvis' Sun Sessions, I intended to vote for it but forgot.

One little nitpicking point for our new class: The correct spelling of Neu! is with the exclamation point.

Good class.

I was reading through the list of albums we inducted thus far and ended up at the first few comments on this page and sort of got sucked in and couldn't stop lol. Anyway, it made me realize two things 1) how much less discussion occurs over here than at the Song Project and 2) What ever happened to Donnie? (And Chalkie and Jonny too for that matter?)

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Saturday, 02.19.11 @ 04:18am


Also, since it's eligible next round, is there anybody who would be willing to support the album "Pink Flag" by Wire?

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Saturday, 02.19.11 @ 05:10am


Yes. I know I will definitely be voting for Never Mind the Bollocks; that waits behind nothing. Beyond that, things are a bit tangled up for me with punk and proto-punk, as I have a bunch of albums coming down the pipeline. If Fun House gets inducted on this try and/or makes no progress, I'd consider giving that slot to Pink Flag. I'll say no more than that; wouldn't want to ruin the surprise.

"1) how much less discussion occurs over here than at the Song Project" -Tahvo

I've noticed this, too. There's much less conversation in the Album Project, but I also think that the Album Project has been much less predictable and cliche than the Song Project.

Sure, like everyone else I have a few records that I consider oversights at this point, but this project has been willing to consistently dig a bit deeper into important landmark releases beyond just the commercial obvious. I'm really proud of what the Album Project has done so far, whereas I lost interest in the Song Project weeks ago.

"Also, since it's eligible next round, is there anybody who would be willing to support the album "Pink Flag" by Wire?" -Tahvo

Absolutely. Pink Flag is one of '77's no brainers.

"I've noticed this, too. There's much less conversation in the Album Project, but I also think that the Album Project has been much less predictable and cliche than the Song Project." - DarinRG

I know what you mean, frankly I'm very pleased with how this project has been going so far. Not nearly as many oversights as the song project and this project gets more and more interesting each round. Looking at who we've currently inducted, I have to say this is turning out to be a pretty excellent selection of albums.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Saturday, 02.19.11 @ 12:51pm


I tend to concur with DarinRG and Tahvo Parvianen regarding the album project. The album is, in my opinion, more important to the art form than a song taken out of place. For me, I do not need to plaster at least a third of my selections for a given class to Beatles-related material because some voters neglected to vote the maximum amount.

Having mentioned that, I still get involved with both the album and the song projects. For tonight, I have picked the 12 albums that should be inducted into the Revisited Class of 2001.


Rush - 2112
The Beach Boys - Friends
Electric Light Orchestra - On The Third Day
Electric Light Orchestra - A New World Record
Electric Light Orchestra - Electric Light Orchestra II
Electric Light Orchestra - ElDorado
Electric Light Orchestra - Face The Music
Electric Light Orchestra - No Answer
Queen - A Day At The Rraces
Chicago - Chicago Transit Authority
Stevie Wonder - Songs In The Key Of Life
The Eagles - Hotel California

Well, those are the 12 albums. Yes, half are ELO. Yet, Jeff Lynne and co. made great albums. With only 12 selections, this was the best I could come up with. A fine list, nevertheless.

Busy doing something, as opposed to nothing:),

A class of 16 would be a record, hope it stands...


Posted by Rick Vendl II on Sunday, 02.20.11 @ 10:32am


Correct, Rick. This class is perfect, so I order everyone to stop voting. NOW!

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 02.20.11 @ 11:47am


We can't induct 16, all the albums with 3 votes would go into tie breaker voting.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 02.20.11 @ 12:09pm


I'm happy we finally got the last velvet underground album left. There is Squeeze but that's not important as far as I'm concerned.

Also next year definetly has some classics
Marquee Moon
The Clash
Never Mind The Bollock Here's The Sex Pistols
Rumours
Damned Damned Damned
Low
Heroes
Bat Out of Hell (well a classic in my opinion anyway)
Trans Europe Express
Exodus
Lust For Life
and more!

"We can't induct 16, all the albums with 3 votes would go into tie breaker voting." - Gassman

Crap. So how many of these:

Deep Purple - In Rock (1970) 3
David Bowie - Station to Station (1976) 3
Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic (1975) 3
The Who - The Who Sell Out (1967) 3
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Willy and the Poor Boys (1969) 3
Scott Walker - Scott 2 (1968) 3
The Allman Brothers Band - At Fillmore East (1971) 3
The Beach Boys - Friends (1968) 3
Electric Light Orchestra - On the Third Day (1973) 3

would be inducted?

Next year's going to be stacked, yes. I had it planned out nicely, but news of a probable tiebreaker has kind of thrown a wrench into it. Still, I think I'll manage.

I don't get it, so how come there were times in the past where 13, 14 and 15 albums made it, then also, you said that there was no tie-breaker for anything over 30 songs at The Song Project this last time for 2001, what gives?

Posted by Rick Vendl II on Sunday, 02.20.11 @ 16:03pm


Hopefully we can get a couple more voters to help break the tie before this round is over. Also, I pleasantly surprised by the support "Friends" has gotten this round. When I voted for it I thought I would be the only one who voted for it. I'm so happy that it's close to making it in.

Posted by Greg F. on Sunday, 02.20.11 @ 16:25pm


I allow for a maximum of three extra albums in order to try to keep the number of tie breakers down. We have a range 12 to 15 album that get inducted each year. If we get to 16 or more then we go to the tie breaker.

GFW - Also don't forget that Rocket To Russia by the Ramones also came out in 1977. It is almost as good as their self-titled debut album.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 02.20.11 @ 22:40pm


Also you have Billy Joel's and Steely Dan's best albums with The Stranger and Aja, respectively, eligible next year. I think this is our best year in terms of albums, I may have a ballot of all new albums!

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 02.20.11 @ 22:53pm


My ballot will be full of new albums since there are many classics that came in 1977.

Then Electric Light Orchestra's arguably best album Out of the Blue!

Posted by Rick Vendl II on Sunday, 02.20.11 @ 23:49pm


There's also Dennis Wilson's solo album Pacific Ocean Blue. An underrated classic that didn't get the reconition it deserved until it was reissued back in 2008. This one will be on my ballot next round. Would anyone else consider supporting "Pacific Ocean Blue" next round?

Posted by Greg F. on Monday, 02.21.11 @ 10:50am


I was reading through the list of albums we inducted thus far and ended up at the first few comments on this page and sort of got sucked in and couldn't stop lol. Anyway, it made me realize two things 1) how much less discussion occurs over here than at the Song Project and 2) What ever happened to Donnie? (And Chalkie and Jonny too for that matter?)

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Saturday, 02.19.11 @ 04:18am

--------------------------------------------------

1) I would love for more discussion to take place on this side. That's why I keep posting my album queue list. We should do what DC did on the song side and have everybody post their queue/snub list. Personally I find albums to be more important than songs and therefore I am much more interested in them. Any other ideas on how increase the talking on this side would be great!

2) Donnie told me that he doesn't have the time that he thinks would be necessary to take a part of this project in good faith. He said he may come back in the future. Chalkie said he is too busy with school and had to drop out. With Jonny I have no idea, he just stopped posting.

Posted by Gassman on Monday, 02.21.11 @ 11:17am


We could post album queues or snub lists. I personally really don't keep up a queues but I could make of a list albums I would like most likely vote for.

Posted by Greg F. on Monday, 02.21.11 @ 11:36am

Paul in KY:

I wasn't born in 1977. But I have heard some of those classics that came out that year. I probably won't go to bonaroo since I don't live close to where it's going to be at.

Posted by Greg F. on Monday, 02.21.11 @ 13:17pm


Paul in KY: I probably won't be headed to Bonaroo as it's quite a long distance away from me and I'll be fairly busy around that time with my current plans but it sounds like it should be great!

Another unique tiebreaker! Well, I am all for it. Here are my rankings of the 12 remaining albums. The first four are the preferred inductees.


The Beach Boys - Friends
Electric Light Orchestra - On The Third Day
The Who - The Who Sell Out
David Bowie - Station To Station
Dusty Springfield - Dusty In Memphis
Deep Purple - In Rock
Scott Walker - Scott 2
Leonard Cohen - Songs Of Love And Hate
Aerosmith - Toys In The Attic
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Willie And The Poor Boys
Peter Frampton - Framptom Comes Alive!

As to how these albums are ranked: in descending order from 11 points to 1 point. Thus, Friends gets 11 points, then followed by 10 points for On The Third Day, etc. Framptom Comes Alive!, of course, gets 1 point. A rather overrated live album from a rather overrated rock great. The rest of the 10 albums all deserve induction now and in the near future.

Guaranteeing an ELO album to be inducted by next week; you know which one,

All we need is Rick and Cheesecrops vote and we could be done with the tie breaker.

Posted by Gassman on Tuesday, 02.22.11 @ 21:16pm


I'd be happy if the tiebreaker results stayed this way. Aside from the fact that I initially voted for all four, they were all deserving of eventual induction and have had to wait at least 6 years apiece.

It's nice to get rid of some backlog before we start on 1977, which could be an all, or close to all, first-year eligible class.

Posted by BSLO on Wednesday, 02.23.11 @ 10:57am


One of those 1977 albums is Low by David Bowie; I'd go for Station to Station first. First half of Low is alright, the second half is just drifting and mindless noise. To have an entire half just unfocused and not really going anywhere is just plain rude to the listener.

I'd be fine with these tiebreaker results.

Posted by Sam on Wednesday, 02.23.11 @ 11:19am


Sam - I totally disagree with your opinion on Low. I think it is David Bowie's second best album behind Ziggy Stardust and probably his most important/influential album. Actually the second half of the album is in my opinion the best side as I feel it takes you on a really dark musical journey.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 02.23.11 @ 12:50pm


Keep in mind that was just my first listen; my opinion could change as time goes on. Anyhow, voting is closed.

Dusty In Memphis (1969) - Dusty Springfield

Now here is where album selections start to get interesting. the era of classic vinyl begins to fade away, and the era of classic rewind is brought into full recognition. In this regard, I have picked the 12 albums to be inducted into the Revisited Class of 2003. All of them amongst the best in their respective sonic fields.


Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel 1 (Car)
Pink Floyd - Animals
Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever: The Soundtrack
The Beach Boys - Friends
Dennis Wilson - Pacific Ocean Blue
Electric Light Orchestra - No Answer
Electric Light Orchestra - On The Third Day
Electric Light Orchestra - ElDorado
Electric Light Orchestra - A New World Record
Electric Light Orchestra - Out Of The Blue
Kraftwerk - Trans-Europe Express
Bob Marley - Exodus

Quite a good collection. Obviously there will be more albums to cover, and more to ponder about their worth. Perhaps we will start to get more voters in the days and weeks ahead.

Having possibly worn out my joie de vive (spelling?),

There are a ton of albums eligible next year that at the very least deserve consideration. Next year's vote is going to be very difficult to figure out.

Posted by Sam on Monday, 02.28.11 @ 09:34am


No kidding Sam, I'm considering: The Wall, Highway to Hell, London Calling, Joe's Garage, Entertainment!, Setting Sons, Unknown Pleasures, Off the Wall, Breakfast in America and Damn the Torpedoes... and I haven't even gotten to the Ramones, Gary Numan, Thin Lizzy, the Damned, Dire Straits, The Cure, Madness, Neil Young, the B-52's, the Police, Talking Heads and the Specials yet. The 70's really ended with a bang.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Monday, 02.28.11 @ 11:01am


Some of those I might skip due to being able to get jack done with them so far (Thin Lizzy, The Damned). I'm not sure whether the first Cure album is essential. The Wall, Highway to Hell and London Calling should be okay without me, and maybe Damn the Torpedoes and Neil Young as well... knock on wood. But yeah, it's a goddamn mess. There's also Live at the Witch Trials by The Fall, if you're into that kind of thing. I think it sounds far better than my original impressions of The Fall, if you're into that kind of thing. Unknown Pleasures, Entertainment!, Setting Sons and The Specials are all essential.

Posted by Sam on Monday, 02.28.11 @ 13:16pm


I do like the Fall and may vote for Live At the Witch Trials, if I can fit it on of course, I may have to go all first ballot next round. We'll see what happens.

I forgot to mention it but yes, I'll vote for it though I would like to see On the Third Day get in this year. I'm also still considering A New World Record and I hope to be able to get around to it at some point. "Don't Bring Me Down" will definitely be getting my vote over at the song project next round as well.

Yes, that's on my album queue as well.

DarinRG, I'm loving the Throbbing Gristle vote, I'm debating whether I should vote for the Third and Final Report next round or vote for 20 Jazz Funk Greats which was released in 1979.

I'm not gonna lie, if voting ended today, we would induct a flawless class.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Tuesday, 03.1.11 @ 02:13am


I agree that this is lining up to be a solid class top to bottom, but I'm genuinely shocked that I'm the only one who has cast a vote for Eno's "Music For Airports", which is a landmark, genre defining album that I expected to be a no-brainer for '78.

It's strange that we inducted Eno first ballot in Revisited/Projected (even if we took the easy route of going Non-Performer) yet we've refused to come even close to acknowledging any of his (solo) work in this project, despite having several opportunities to do so. I'm genuinely stumped by this.

Here are the 12 albums I have picked for the Revisited Class of 2004. Unlike other people, I will make a comittment to not drop curse words, intentionally or not, into the vernuncular. These are, nonetheless, great albums to listen and reward.


The Cars - self titled 1978 album
The Jam - All Mod Cons
Chicago - Chicago Transit Authority
Traffic - Mr. Fantasy
Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel 1 (Car)
Dennis Wilson - Pacific Ocean Blue
The Beach Boys - Friends
The Beach Boys - The Beach Boys Love You
The Police - Outlandos D'amour
Devo - Are We Not Men? We Are Devo!
Blondie - Parallel Lines
David Bowie - Low

Rest assured, I will get into David Bowie's Berlin Trilogy sonner once Low gets inducted. And yes, I did include The Beach Boys Love You in my list of albums: bizarrely unique, if not masterful given their state of mind at the time.

"Modern Love" can be a strain to hear:),

Before the tiebreaker I want to emphasize the point that we are almost to the end of the 1970's and we have only inducted one Bruce Springsteen album. I would strongly encourage you all to put Darkness On The Edge Of Town high on your tiebreaker ballots!

Also here are those who can vote in the tiebreaker election (barring a new voter), the tiebreaker will go for 24 hours or once everyone has voted, whichever comes first.

Gassman, Darkness On The Edge Of Town will definitely be #1 on my tiebreaker...surprised it didn't get more than 3 votes.

With the 70's coming to a close, I think one genre that we could represent better from this decade would be Funk. Would anybody be willing to toss a vote at any of the following albums in the next couple of cycles?:

Maggot Brain - Funkadelic
One Nation Under a Groove - Funkadelic
Superfly - Curtis Mayfield
Mothership Connection - Parliament

Here are my tiebreaker votes and points structure. No extended explanation is needed for why and how this was chosen.


Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel 1 (Car)(12)
The Police - Outlandos D'amour
Bruce Springsteen - Darkness On The Edge Of Town
Devo - Are We Not Men? We Are Devo!
The Beach Boys - Friends
Aerosmith - Rocks
Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True
Leonard Cohen - Songs Of Love And Hate
Scott Walker - Scott 2
Dennis Wilson - Pacific Ocean Blue
The Buzzcocks - Another Music In A Different Kitchen
Richard Hell - Blank Generation (1)

Again, I put emphasis and greater importance on those artists we have inducted into the Revisited/Projected Rock Hall. But then, fellow posters have probably already guessed at how I do business.

Happy voting and may 11 of the 12 albums get inducted eventually,

So you have the two leaders as Darkness on the Edge of Town with 93 and Rocks with 73, with the next closest ones being Peter Gabriel with 69, Devo with 60, Outlandos with 68 and Scott 2 with 63? Works for me because I knew I'd messed up the calculations somewhere. Regulars that have yet to cast a tiebreaking vote:

This year was next to impossible, I couldn't manage to fit Blank Generation, Another Music in a Different Kitchen, On the Third Day, Setting Sons and the Dire Straits debut on this round, not to mention some essential newly eligibles like Off the Wall for example, hopefully some of these can get in without my help, if not I'll get back to voting for them ASAP.

Good class, but it's going to stay tough with newly eligibles, so let's make this one count.

Posted by Sam on Saturday, 03.5.11 @ 16:32pm


Darin: Singles Going Steady would be the easiest route to getting The Buzzcocks represented, and in ordinary circumstances I would definitely support it. However, the rules are that compilations where 75% or more of the material is released or recorded 1965 or later don't count, so you get one more votes.

One more drunken ramble: I didn't vote for some albums that are deserving because I figured they wouldn't need my help. Highway to Hell was one of them, and I especially hope I'm right here, as 1980 will be treacherous voting for heavy music: Ace of Spades, Blizzard of Ozz, British Steel and Iron Maiden all become eligible. Just something to keep in mind.

Posted by Sam on Saturday, 03.5.11 @ 16:40pm


I wasn't aware of that rule, so we'll just switch it to Another Music in a Different Kitchen.

Albums From 1979, in my opinion order of importance

1. London Calling – The Clash
2. The Wall – Pink Floyd
3. The B-52’s – The B-52’s
4. Highway To Hell – AC/DC
5. Damn The Torpedoes – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
6. Off The Wall – Michael Jackson
7. Rust Never Sleeps – Neil Young And Crazy Horse
8. Breakfast In America - Supertramp

Albums before 1979 that need my vote help:

9. Maggot Brain (1971) - Funkadelic
10. Horses (1975) - Patti Smith
12. One Nation Under A Groove (1978) - Funkadelic
12. Outlandos d’Amour (1978) – The Police

I also support the induction of Entertainment! and Unknown Pleasure, but it looks like they will get in without my help!

"1980 will be treacherous voting for heavy music: Ace of Spades, Blizzard of Ozz, British Steel and Iron Maiden all become eligible. Just something to keep in mind." - Sam

I'll join Sam with doing some newly eligible album recommendations for next year:

Crazy Rhythms - The Feelies (their debut albums and one of the earliest examples of jangle pop, a type of alternative rock)
Seconds of Pleasure - Rockpile (their only album, an underrated masterpiece)
Los Angeles - X (One of the greatest punk rock albums of all time, IMO)
Willie Nile - Willie Nile (the debut album by one of the most underrated and talented singer-songwriting, folk revival/alternative rock musicians of the last quarter century, IMO)

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 14:05pm


And yes I plan on voting for all four!

I'll add on to what Tahvo was saying with some 1980 albums. I won't tell you what my plans are as far as these are concerned, but all at least deserve serious consideration:

-In The Flat Fields by Bauhaus (Putting aside that I share the same roots as them, it's one of the more underrated post-punk albums, and something that helped shape what became known as "goth rock")

-Boy by U2 (yep, the biggest band of the last 30 years are coming around the corner, just to make our ballots that much harder)

-Remain in Light by Talking Heads (I don't care which Talking Heads album we induct, but we don't have a single one in yet; I think that should be corrected)

-Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables by Dead Kennedys (Hello, hardcore)

-Zenyatta Mondatta by The Police (see Talking Heads)

There are more (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_in_music), but just a few to keep in mind.

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 14:28pm


So Bauhaus becomes eligible next year as well? And here I was thinking voting was going to get easier.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 14:43pm


No way! I'm already planning my vote for next year, and it's really tough. If this class goes well it should help though, and it's looking good right now.

Posted by Sam on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 16:00pm


I have my votes prepared. Perhaps we are now shortening the deadline. In any case, here are the 12 albums I have picked for the Revisited Class of 2005. All of them very great recordings.


Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Electric Light Orchestra - Discovery
Dennis Wilson - Pacific Ocean Blue
Devo - Are We Not Men? We Are Devo!
Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel 1 (Car)
Donna Summer - Bad Girls
The Police - Regatta De Blanc
Brian Eno - Ambient 1: Music For Airports
The Clash - London Calling
The B-52's - self titled 1979 album
Michael Jackson - Off The Wall

Hopefully these get added to the total of votes. Perhaps there will not be a need to put tiebreakers in this voting class.

Stopping before there is enough:),

Posted by Lax28 on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 18:21pm


Switch out my vote Rickie Lee Jones by Rickie Lee Jones for a vote for Highway to Hell by AC/DC.

Posted by Greg F. on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 18:50pm


Sam & Tahvo

Also you have:

Back In Black by AC/DC
Sandinista! by The Clash
Peter Gabriel III (Melt) - Peter Gabriel
Closer by Joy Division
Pretenders by Pretenders
Dirty Mind by Prince
Permanent Waves by Rush
The River by Bruce Springsteen

Lucky things die off a bit in 1981, before picking back up again 1982.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 18:59pm


I'll try to have a album list for 1979 later tonight, sorry for the delay for those who were looking for one.

Posted by Gassman on Sunday, 03.6.11 @ 21:59pm


Actually I think that just posting the wikipedia article for the year we are voting for will do. I don't mind making album lists, but I am starting to think that it is unnecessary. The song list on the other hand...

The latest update stripped Eno's "Music For Airports" of one of its votes. It got votes from LAX and me.

DarinRG - That's my fault, I totally missed that. The reason I gave another voting update was I think Sam did not record my votes. I corrected the vote totals.

Voting closes today, I think. It does for sure for the song project and from the looks of it, we might have a tiebreaker here at the album project, so we wouldn't want the two projects to get too out of sync.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 06:32am


Tahvo - Actually if the votes stay exactly the same as they are now, all 15 albums will get in.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 09:48am


Well in that case, this class would be fantastic!

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 10:01am


DC - I would put a vote forth for Sweet Baby James (1970) by James Taylor if you would be willing to vote for Crosby, Stills & Nash (1969) by Crosby, Stills & Nash. I feel like they connect well enough considering they both were put of the Mellow Mafia/Los Angeles music scene of the early 1970's.

Hey Gassman,

That last ballot came right at closing time 12:00 PM EST and only cast votes for the top 12/15, very suspicious, it should be disallowed, I was just waiting for something like that to happen!

My votes for 2006:

Maggot Brain (1971) – Funkadelic
Horses (1975) - Patti Smith
My Aim is True (1977) - Elvis Costello
Back In Black (1980) - AC/DC

Gassman: Crosby, Stills and Nash's self-titled album has been just off my ballot for awhile now. Given that it might finally get some support, I will vote for it next year given that 1981 was a pretty weak year for albums. I'll try to make room for Sweet Baby James too if I can.

Hey Gassman,

I must lodge a formal protest, the last ballot from prosopagnosiac came right at close time, meaning 3:00 PM EST, 12:00 PM PST, check its timestamp and only cast votes in the top 12/15, very suspicious, it should be disallowed, I was just waiting for something like this to happen!

>:-(

Posted by Rick Vendl II on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 13:26pm


Rick - I am going to let his vote. Prosopagnosiac always has waited until the end to cast his vote for all of the projects we have done and his vote was only time by a minute.

Also I completely forgot about Blizzard Of Ozz, I am going to drop my vote for Remain In Light as it should get in without my help.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 13:40pm


Good class last round, though a little disappointing we still don't have an ELO album in yet, with On the Third Day and Discovery both falling short, I'm now supporting A New World Record. Also, this year was very tough, hopefully some first ballot worthy albums like British Steel and Blizzard of Ozz can get in without my help.

Anyway, my vote:

Back in Black (1980) - AC/DC
In the Flat Field (1980) - Bauhaus
The River (1980) - Bruce Springsteen
A New World Record (1976) - Electric Light Orchestra
Crazy Rhythms (1980) - The Feelies
Maggot Brain (1971) - Funkadelic
Closer (1980) - Joy Division
'Frisco Mabel Joy (1971) - Mickey Newbury
Blank Generation (1977) - Richard Hell and the Voidoids
Seconds of Pleasure (1980) - Rockpile
Los Angeles (1980) - X
Willie Nile (1980) - Willie Nile

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 13:43pm


Thanks Tahvo, I appeciate it and wish you luck, but your efforts will be in vain like mine were, this particular voting body will never allow that to happen, hope I'm proven wrong though...

Posted by Rick Vendl II on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 14:34pm


Excellent work, but it's going to stay tough, so choose wisely.

Iron Maiden (1980) - Iron Maiden
Pretenders (1980) - The Pretenders
Crocodiles (1980) - Echo & the Bunnymen
Remain in Light (1980) - Talking Heads
Zenyatta Mondatta (1980) - The Police
Ace of Spades (1980) - Motorhead
Horses (1975) - Patti Smith
In The Flat Field (1980) - Bauhaus
Blizzard of Ozz (1980) - Ozzy Osbourne
Killing Joke (1980) - Killing Joke
Los Angeles (1980) - X
Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables (1980) - Dead Kennedys

Gassman,

But those 12 album votes would have been inducted anyway, there was no purpose for that ballot other than to make sure 3 albums were left out of an induction!

Posted by Rick Vendl II on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 15:55pm


From 1980:

In the Flat Field - Bauhaus
Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables - Dead Kennedys
Los Angeles - X

Underwater Moonlight - The Soft Boys

Killing Joke - Killing Joke
Crocodoles - Echo & the Bunnymen
Ace of Spades - Motorhead

Important misses from the backlog:

Horses (1975) - Patti Smith
Blank Generation (1977) - Richard Hell & the Voidoids
Ambient 1: Music For airports (1978) - Brian Eno

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 16:18pm


Rick,

I understand that you're upset, but this is not the route to take if you want to generate support. I think that a lot of people still have ill feelings about your ELO campaign and the perceived shenanigans at the end of it during Revisited, and having a fit because they got bumped this class by a valid, legal ballot cast by a known late voter won't inspire much sympathy from the group going forward.

We've all had albums that we were supporting get bumped at the last minute. Oh, well. Just keep voting for them or maybe instead of loading up a whole ballot with ELO, save a couple of those spots to help other people get some of their acts over the hump in return for an ELO vote.

Going back to Revisited, some voters like to cast early ballots to set the pace of what they hope the class might look like and some prefer to cast late ballots to shape the classs. This is nothing new. It's nothing immoral or illegal. It's a voter's right to cast their ballot when and for whom they choose.

DarinRG,

If I voted for certain albums to make sure Discovery got in right at the closing deadline like prosopagnosiac did, you guys would jump my shit about it, rules are obviously worthless here except when they affect me, I've made open offers of help with 1-5 extra ballot slots since 1998 and nobody has taken up any support offer, please see my other comments!

After I submitted my ballot I realized that we never inducted "New York Dolls" or "Suicide", and there haven't been votes for either (including from me) in a few ballots.

I'm not going to switch out anything on this years ballot, but next year I'm going to perma-slot both of them. If there's anyone who agrees with me that they are too important to let slip away, I'd love the help.

Posted by DarinRG on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 21:22pm


DarinRG - Did you see that the New York Dolls are opening up Motley Crue and Poison, lol? Thought you would get a kick out of that.

Posted by Gassman on Wednesday, 03.9.11 @ 21:37pm


At this point, why not? LOL.

For some reason that reminded me of meeting Arthur Kane outside the Roxy in Hollywood in the late 90's. He was a really huge man with a gentle, burnt out demeanor. He had Frank Infante from Blondie leading him around, handling all of the speaking responsibilities and anytime we'd say anything to Arthur he'd just kinda grunt and give a friendly smile. All I could think about the whole time takking to the two of them was "Of Mice and Men".

Yeah, it's cool that the Dolls decided to reunite, but you really can't do it right without Killer Kane.

I'll bump "The Royal Scam" for now, but will get back to it soon.

Actually, just this once, switch out my vote for Getz/Gilberto to Horses. We've gotta get that one in.

Just a heads up to everyone, I would prefer if if we could keep it to one voting update per day instead of after every vote.

I plan on voting for an ELO album next round. I'll vote for either A New World Record, Out of the Blue, or Time. I want to know which of the three will likely have the most support. Also, I would like to make a push for The Kinks "Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)". I believe this may be the last Kinks album we need to induct. So I encourage anyone vote for it to do so. I can't believe we forgot about it.

Posted by Greg F. on Thursday, 03.10.11 @ 12:30pm


Next year is going to be a great year for backlog in terms of albums. I only 3-4 albums that came out in 1981 that are worthy of induction. Things pick back up in 1982, but not to the point to what it was for some years in the 60's and 70's.

Also I am not saying their aren't great albums in the 80's, 90's or 00's. There are albums in all those decades that are better/more important then ones we have already inducted. I am just saying that number of induction worthy albums per year doesn't match the level we were at in the 60's and 70's, other than 1991, lol!

Also I am hoping that people don't pass over albums in the 80's, 90's and 00's in order to get more 2nd and 3rd tier albums from the 60's and 70's. I know there are still a lot of great albums still out there from the 60's and 70's that we need to get in. I am just having bad visions of people having all 60's and 70's ballots when we are voting for albums in 00's.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 03.10.11 @ 12:36pm


Rick - I will vote for New World Record by ELO next round if you will vote for Crosby, Stills & Nash by Crosby, Stills & Nash. If that album gets in this year which is possible, if you could vote for Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere by Neil Young & Crazy Horse.

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 03.10.11 @ 12:43pm


I'll vote for A New World Record again next round.

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Thursday, 03.10.11 @ 12:49pm


I'll go ahead and plan on voting for A New World Record next round myself since it has the best chance of all the ones I want to vote for. I'll definitely have room since there's 3 or 4 newly eligible albums that I would vote for. Of the newly eligibles I will vote for Rickie Lee Jones- Pirates, Kraftwerk- Computer World, Prince- Controversy, & Iron Maiden- Killers.

Posted by Greg F. on Thursday, 03.10.11 @ 13:14pm


R.I.P. Mike Starr. Let us not forget the hell that dope caused in Seattle at one point.

Posted by Sam on Thursday, 03.10.11 @ 13:24pm


Hey guys! I recently started a music blog and my most recent post is my analysis on how i think things are going right now in the Album Project. You should check it out!

http://darksideofthecapitol.blogspot.com/

Posted by Gassman on Thursday, 03.10.11 @ 16:47pm


Gassman - If CSN doesn't make it this year, I intend to vote for it next year.

Posted by Darren on Thursday, 03.10.11 @ 20:20pm


I concur with Sam. A damn shame that Alice In Chains, an already important rock act to begin with, did not become the rock gods they should have been. Well, I hope that Mike Starr, much like Layne Staley before him, are in a better place.

Now then, I have selected the 12 albums to be inducted into the Revisited Class of 2006. Truly the end of one era and the beginning of another era in the evolution of rock and roll.


Joy Division - Closer
Peter Gabriel - Peter Gabriel 3 (Melt)
Devo - Freedom Of Choice
Electric Light Orchestra - A New World Record
John Lennon (and Yoko Ono) - Double Fantasy
The Beach Boys - Friends
The Police - Zenyatta Mondatta
Brian Eno - Ambient 1: Music For Airports
Bruce Springsteen - The River
AC/DC - Back In Black
Parliament-Funkadelic - Maggot Brain
Patti Smith - Horses

So many albums to choose from. Yet, only 12 per induction cycle. Maybe a smattering of added albums make the cut this time out, considering there is usually room for more than a dozen.


Off to read Gassman's blog,

Posted by Lax28 on Thursday, 03.10.11 @ 20:35pm


Gassman, I will vote for CSN next round if it doesn't make it. Also, would you consider voting for "Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)" by The Kinks?

Posted by Gassman on Friday, 03.11.11 @ 00:59am


Gassman, Greg F. & Tahvo,

Deal, thanks guys, I like it when a plan comes together.

8-)

But please do not overlook ELO's 1981 album Time, Steve Winwood even cites its influence in his 1980s Rolling Stone interview or their lead hit single "Hold on Tight" for that matter over at The Song Project as they are both very underrated and influential upon techno pop along with roots rock.

The previous year, David Bowie had released his "Ashes to Ashes" music video which was considered as the most innovative to date at that time. But ELO were largely regarded to have surpassed that with their music video for "Hold on Tight". At the time it was the most expensive ever made at around £40,000. Source: UK Midlands Central TV News, August, 1981, thanks Ade!

Posted by Rick Vendl II on Friday, 03.11.11 @ 01:07am


Rick, I'll for sure vote for "Hold on Tight" at the song project and I encourage other people to do the same. I can maybe fit Time on my ballot next round, depending on if A New World Record gets in this round which I hope it will, it's always tougher for me to fit albums on over here than songs at the song project (12 vs. 30 makes a HUGE difference), but I'll be able to get to Time soon.

"Also, I would like to make a push for The Kinks 'Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)'" - Greg F.

Hey Greg, I'll vote for Arthur next round, out of curiosity, would you consider voting for "Shangri-La" off that album in the song project?

Tahvo,

I may consider voting for "Shangri-La" on the song project. I'm not familiar with the song or album. I just decided to push for "Arthur" based on what I've read about it.

I will vote for "Shangri-La" next round. I'm also considering "Yes Sir, No Sir".

Thanks Greg, it's definitely among the best Kinks songs, IMO. I encourage people unfamiliar with it to check it out.

Would anyone support any of the pre Steve Perry Journey albums "Journey", "Look to the Future", and "Next"? These are Journey's best albums IMO.

Correction "Look into the Future" is the correct title for the second Journey album.

Rick, I'll for sure vote for "Hold on Tight" at the song project and I encourage other people to do the same. I can maybe fit Time on my ballot next round, depending on if A New World Record gets in this round which I hope it will, it's always tougher for me to fit albums on over here than songs at the song project (12 vs. 30 makes a HUGE difference), but I'll be able to get to Time soon.

Hey Tahvo, Gassman & Greg F.,

I think I'd rather have Time get inducted in 1981, its first
