Part 2 - 15 Albums That Greatly Influenced My Musical Tastes - With Brief Explanations

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band represents all the other Beatles albums when the group was together from 1962-70.

Always remember that they were Bob Dylan's Band.  They backed him at concert tours in 1966 and 1974.  They had some career that "ended" with The Last Waltz in 1976.  The group did reform without Robbie Robertson.  We just bought the DVD Once Were Brothers that we saw in February at the IFC Center in Greenwich Village.

In my opinion, this was the Beach Boys' finest work.  It also represents all their other albums that I have in my collection.

The Rolling Stones certainly have had a long and successful career.  I enjoyed their earlier recordings such as 12X5 where they cover blues artists of the 1950s and early 1960s.

I was watching Entertainment Tonight in 1988 when Mary Hart announced this album.  This has to be the greatest supergroup ever with Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, George Harrison, and Roy Orbison.  This album brings out the best of all 5.  Sadly only Bob and Jeff are still living.
