    really? everyone? BIGLY is probably their best song for me, cause he keeps it low, not so loud for the most part, There are others, Going to Cal, That's the Way, etc.

    Normally I'm not a big fan of Europeans / Canadians imitating African Americans cuz it's so fake but I gotta hand to Bobby - he really threw himself into this one -

    I consider this recording to be a strong contender in this category:

    Let us not forget Foreigner on the sales of Debut LP's in the US seems like we miss the discussion about this group when we come to opening LPS from supergroups of this era..I love LZ also but giving Foreigner a little love is not a bad thing when you see the number of hits that came off that first LP. And it is Cold as Ice where I live today 5 degrees this Am.

    It's no secret that Zeppelin is the greatest band of all time(imho)
    So for me it's a no brainer.But there's so many others how about blizzard of Oz I mean Randy Rhoads is on fire. Some one also someone also said the doors
    And are you experienced. And I must also agree with the guys that said Zeppelin 2 is better.

    Sorry, didn't read the whole thread yet so please excuse my snarky response. LZ1 was a great debut until you start to compare the similarities of the first Jeff Beck Group album which preceded and heavily influenced the structure of LZ1....

    Nevermind, they're both great.

    Now, if the Jeff Beck would've taken the invite to Woodstock one year later...
    There's a "what if" thread idea.

    A little Jeff Beck Jimmy Page fun fact for you . If you ever see Jimmy playing a tie dyed fender telecaster it was a gift from Beck when he joined the Yardbirds

    The first Allman Brothers album remains pretty much of a gem, IMHO....

    I know that's right. And let's keep a good thought for Greg he's not in good health. We've Lost too many Allman's

    Agree with all of the above. But will toss in the Fleetwood Mac Rumours LP. Debut of the Nicks/Buckingham era of an iconic blues band turned into pop rock legend. Not my favorite FM album but still a landmark.

    yay or nay?

    I hated that Terrance Trent D'Arby recording when it came out, not sure if it was the music or the critics gushing over it. Maybe I should go back and have another listen....or maybe not.

    I'm with you. When I saw the title of the thread, I immediately thought of Elvis' first LP. Not a bad song on the album. Not a single one you want to skip to another, and almost all of them, when they start to fade, make you think, "I wish this song was longer."

    I don't think there's a first LP out there that can top the lyrics on this record.
