    What one album have you listened to the most in your lifetime? Not necessarily your most favorite (although it may be).

    As for me it is a tough call. There is Led Zeppelin IV, Hotel California, Rumors, I Robot and Aja all of which I have warn out several records each over the years. It may not be fair in that there are some newer albums I really like that just don’t have the benefit of time to make the list.

    Also, my tastes have changed a bit over the years but I still don’t listen to music as often as I did back when I was much younger. I could not imagine listening to KOB in my 20s but it is probably the most played album in the last 10 years in my system.

    For me it must be DSOTM which is totally etched in my brain and I’ve heard probably more than all the others combined.

    Probably Hawkwind "Space Ritual Live" because I was absolutely obsessed with it from 1973-1975. Aerosmith "Toys In The Attic" has to be up there too

    Wow. Interesting question... Most listened? Hmmmm...

    Well, I've been listening to albums a LONG time... I would have to say

    Miles Davis - Kind of Blue

    I was probably listening to it in my Mother's womb as it was my Father's favorite. I grew up listening to it and owned my own copies since the 70s, I guess.

    Boston~S/T by far. I could listen to that one every day and not get tired of it--it is just such a cohesive piece of work from beginning to end.

    I was pretty obsessed with Jethro Tull back in the 70's and so I'd have to say it would probably be their album Benefit or maybe Stand Up or possibly Aqualung.

    Jeff Beck "Truth", since it came out in the late 60's. Powerful album.

    Boston, Toys in the Attic and Running on Empty should certainly be added to my list but DSOTM still has much more spin time.

    Allman Brothers Fillmore East, in its various incarnations. I have been listening to it since I was in high school, and I still hear something new every now and then.

    Another vote for Live at the Fillmore here, but Exile on Main Street and Beggar's Banquet are close. And Running on Empty was practically a daily player with my roomie in late 1970s grad school...

    Herbie Mann's Memphis Underground was the first Jazz album I bought and still play it at least once a month. I didn't care for Jazz then but when I heard that and later Chuck Mangione's Feelin Good I was hooked on some of it.

    Come to think of it Hot Rocks might be the answer. I pretty well wore the grooves out of that long lost album especially Sides 3 and 4

    Probably T Bone Burnett's self-titled album from 1986.
