    1. Black Oak Arkansas - S/T
    2. Janis Joplin - Greatest Hits
    3. Micheal Stanley Band - Stagepass
    4. Little Feat - Waiting For Columbus
    5. Cheap Trick - S/T

    I'll tell my wife you said that. ;)

    I must admit that Humble Pie record is a kind of a guilty pleasure for me -- a few years ago I came across a old copy of it, and I still play it from time to time, and still enjoy those Ray Charles covers when I do. Aqualung I didn't think of but could have mentioned; and I guess I might have just as easily said Led Zeppelin I or II.

    I was no longer a teenager in the 70's as it seems most of you were. My selections are all from when I was still a teenager.
    So, now for something completely different.
    Charles Lloyd, Dream Weaver
    The Ramsey Lewis Trio, The In Crowd
    Miles Davis, Kind Of Blue
    John Coltrane, Giant Steps
    Dave Brubeck, Time Out
    I was heavily into Jazz even as a teenager.

    Agnostic Front- Liberty and justice for...
    Public Enemy- Nation of millions.

    I started being a teenager in 1964. I can't name just five albums, but I remember listening to The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Doors, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, The Who, Cream, Jimi Hendrix....

    It used to be fun, buying the latest albums.

    Hard to pin down five favorites, But I know I wore these out.
    They sounded much better on my Sansui G-8700DB than they did on the all in one I had before that.

    Those were some of my favorites at the time, but if I make a list now of rock favorites from the era, the list might be:

    James Taylor
    - Sweet Baby James
    Moody Blues - Days of Future Passed
    Chicago Transit Authority

    Fleetwood Mac - Mystery To Me
    ABB - Fillmore

    Of course, I could easily come up with a different set of five for each list, and several times without repeating. I also had and have favorites from other genres, too. Like you guys, I have hundreds of favorites.

    I've got to agree. Early teens I was still strongly Infuenced by my older by seven years brother so I owned the entire Beatles collection and can't really pin down a single Beatles record that got the highest play rate. Maybe Help! Maybe Meet The Beatles. Maybe Abbey Road. My brother moved out and my tastes branched out. Foreigner fulfilled that dark teen angsty phase. ELO hooked me with a single - Evil Woman (or was it Strange Magic). Kansas got played a whole heck of a lot. Fifth is a toss up. I'll go with 10CC though Yes got a lot of play. The latest released album at the time got a lot of play for that matter.

    So, the list is:
    Beatles Help!
    Foreigner Foreigner
    ELO Ole ELO
    Kansas Leftoverture
    10CC Rubber Bullets

    About 20 honorable mentions....
