Probably be different tomorrow but... just had to get it down...
Most people list their personal "favorites" as"the best" albums of all-time. And when I filled out this Top 100 Ranking, I also listed several albums that were long-time favorites... but they are not really "better" albums than The Beatles and Led Zeppelin.
Back in the day, I wore out several copies of Buffalo Springfield - Again... but it's certainly not as refined as the recordings that Stills and Young have made since.
And I once saw Gino Vannelli live, and his voice was beyond spectacular... but his albums were not on a par with Sgt. Pepper and Zep II.
The one low-scoring recording that I still believe to be Top 20 legend, is Chicago Transit Authority. This double-album literally launched a whole new genre of "big band" rock... and Terry Kath was a major contributor to the "fuzz guitar" technology that we now take for granted.
