Building a 100 album vinyl collection 3 must have albums are?

No opera or rap in the three must haves. Sorry.


Queen “Night at the Opera”

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young “Deja Vous”

Who “Next”

Cat Stevens “Tea for the Tillerman”

Pink Floyd “ Dark Side of the Moon”

I’m ashamed I didn’t remember the 1st Moody Blues album, when they were a Piano Based Blues Band with Denny Laine singing. Many are aware of the Justin Hayward Era, but this is how they came to fame.

Moody Blues, Go Now,

Go Now, song, showing USA version of LP Sleeve

Whole Album on youtube, different sleeve image

I’m lucky to have found 2 copies on R2R tape at great prices years ago

The Piano benefits most from the Tape Format.

btw, I'll Go Crazy was written by James Brown, here, 1960, with the Famous Flames




You should also mention to the OP that an original, genuine pressing of Tool's "Aenima" will run at least $1000.  There are many, many bootleged versions, but very few genuine articles.
