    You won't regret listening to any of these albums, as long as you give some of them a bit of time to get anyway But all live long in the memory. Many of them are in my top 10 of album time. Left a few out as i know you will have probably have listened to them like Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, The Doors etc.

    A Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel

    I put the really, really good ones in bold.

    Very nice. I would extend this to all of their albums, though. Bookends and Parsely, Sage, Rosemary, & Thyme, certainly.
    Their live albums 1967 and 1969 are fantastic. The former is just them and a guitar, which is very special. The latter has a stand-out perfomance of Bridge Over Troubled Water, and worth it just for that

    ~~
    Others I would recommend-
    any of Radiohead's albums. Though let's start with OK Computer

    Early Yes; The Yes Album, Close to the Edge, Fragile. Their live album Yessongs is amazing. Keys to Ascension is also good

    Yeah, I concur, S&G are just .. amazing. I think Bridge Over Troubled Water is the best starter's album though, it's just brilliant.

    True enough. Definitely their swan song. It's a particular favourite of mine because Cecilia is on this album, and that was the song that properly got me into them.

    I'm so annoyed because I just bought the Live 1969 album, only for them to release a 40th anniversary of version Bridge, including the live album, and a documentary special that I've been looking for for ages. I really want it, but it would mean having two duplicates. Very annoying.... I'm hoping someone will post the documentary on youtube

    It's such a good album my record has actually been worn out because I listen to it so much. I think 'The Only Living Boy In New York' is my favourite track, I feel like that sometimes, I like to pretend I'm The Only Living Boy in Norwich sometimes. :awesome:
