    The top 5 is intentional. Those albums have to stand out to you to make the cut. The most influential. Sure its hard to pick out those 5. It's meant to be hard to choose.

    All I can remember is Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin were my most played artists.As a teenager living in a small town in southern Colo.there were not a lot of choices.It wasn't until a stint in the US Army in my early twenties in the early 80s that I really discovered a lot of music.Mainly 60s and 70s rock.

    For me, it ain't hard. It just ain't possible. But the thread started off as five favorites when a teenager, without mention of influence, which will probably be different with hindsight than favorites at the time, anyway. Just as my current favorites from that era differ from my teen preferences. Fun thread though. I could adopt several people's lists as among my favorites at the time, which would be as valid as what I posted.

    As a teen, I also loved jazz, classical, country and blues but since most kept it rock, I did, too, since adding more genres just made listing only five that much more impossible.

    Exactly why I picked the ones I did. They influenced probably 90% of what I've listened to since. Still Jazz and blues primarily but for many years those were interspersed with a lot of country rock. I was never a metal head or disco guy and I disliked most classic rock aside from Little Feat and a few others. That Columbia record and others in the set were a huge influence as the were my first taste of blues and jazz.
