Yup, I think ABBA is the best thing to come from Sweden, but them being a Swede, I might be a tad prejudiced.PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

I probably have more classical CDs and LPs in my collection than anything else, but that's still likely to be only about 15% of the total because I love a LOT of different music.


It was interesting reading through what everyone posted because I was nodding my head, saying "YES" to a whole lot of it.


Frank Zappa was an exceptional genius, not only in composition, but also at playing and maybe most of all, choosing great people to be in his band over the years!  The absolute best concert I've ever seen was Zappa and his band of the time, in the mid '70s in Denver.  The venue should have had horrible acoustics (basketball arena), but they got the sound to be amazingly good.  And they didn't play so loud that you needed hearing protection. It just sounded clear and pleasant.  Also, they never stopped playing - I mean there wasn't one single point where the music stopped - for the full 2 1/2 hours.


It's awesome to see and hear real musicians actually playing incredibly complex music, live, with precision, accuracy, feeling, and just plain fun like that. What a blast. Pretty hard not to smile just remembering it.


Another memorable concert was James Taylor in my relatively small town not too long ago.  He really responded to the fans and they responded to him, and the concert brought tears to the eyes.  The same could be said of Elton John, who, again, was touched by the crowd and touched the crowd as well.  Outstanding performers in my opinion.


Here's the list I made just by poaching people that others mentioned earlier in the thread and adding my own:


Frank Zappa
James Taylor
Elton John
Pink Floyd
Van Halen
Carlos Santana
Buddy Rich
Rolling Stones
Led Zepplin
Stevie Ray Vaughan
Eric Clapton
The Beatles
Jethro Tull
Bob Marley & The Wailers
Jimmy Cliff
Talking Heads
Allman Brothers
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Lynyrd Skynyrd
Tina Turner
Lyle Lovett
Asleep at the Wheel
Riders in the Sky
ZZ Top
Tom Petty
Warren Zevon
Harry Nilsson
The Cars
The Grateful Dead
The Eagles
The Who
Bonnie Raitt
Flat and Skruggs

Elvis Costello
John Hartford
David Grisman
David Bromberg
The Berlin Philharmonic
Maurice Andre (the world's best trumpet player. RIP)

Pops 6927 mentioned: Big bands... Miller, Dorsey, etc.
Marching bands and competitions.

Don't forget Count Basie, and of course anything by John Philps Sousa!

slimbo mentioned Emerson Lake and Palmer and Zappa.  RIght on!

Any Jazz
