#29 - On their first album, Led Zeppelin were still in the process of inventing their own sound, moving on from the heavy rave-ups of guitarist Jimmy Page's previous band, the Yardbirds. But from the beginning, Zeppelin had the astonishing fusion of Page's lyrical guitar-playing, Robert Plant's paint-peeling love-hound yowl, and John Paul Jones and John Bonham's avalanche boogie. www.jeffreymarkell.com #orangecountyrealtor #jeffforhomes #greatestalbums

#32 - The Rolling Stones' final record of the Sixties kicks off with the terrifying "Gimme Shelter," the song that came to symbolize not only the catastrophe of the Stones' free show at Altamont but the death of the decade's utopian spirit.

The Rolling Stones, 'Exile on Main Street' - i love the blues and even more, i love rock albums, groups, sounds, artists (particularly guitarists) inspired by the blues. and i don't mean they just like the blues, i mean successfully incorporate the blues sound into their music (i.e. this album, jimmy page in general, jimi hendrix, the list goes on)...this album does all the right things.
