George Jones is not a choice?! Johnny Cash? Marty Robbins? Willie Nelson? George Strait?

Hmmm... thread's been read 23 times but no votes.  Could be the premise of the question.  (read: Led Zeppelin IV wasn't one of the options)

I cast votes for 'Steely Dan's' famous  Dark Side of the Moon and Zeppelin II albums, among others.   ;)    Also, their many live shows recorded by Deadheads are great, too. Prolific band.    ;D

If you want to put Led Zeppelin in the pantheon at least get the best albums in correct order. Physical Graffiti is the best. Led Zeppelin II is second.

Dark Side of the moon is certainly great, but not better than Animals. C'mon.

All of which I have on vinyl. Just sayin'. None sound better than Gaucho.

I love old country, and am a big Willie Nelson fan especially. That new poppy country crap? Hell no. Holly crap I hate that stuff.

Yeah, Physical Graffiti is amazing - lots of different sounds. I still think Dark Side is the best ,most cohesive thing I've ever heard. But I'm a music fanatic. Tons of great stuff out there.

I like your style but you missed the mark.

Obviously none of you have a vinyl copy of Gaucho.
