I like New Morning, but I don't care too much about the other 70's stuff by Dylan.

Oh, if you'd wanted me to lie to you, Oli, why didn't you say?

In fact, the criteria has completely scuppered what I probably would have listed.....debut LPs by Hawkwind, Gong, Can's 'Soundtracks', Trader Horne's debut (all from 1970), amongst others.

Anyway, completely avoiding Corporate Rock like the plague (no wonder punk happened)....

1. McCartney - Paul
2. Let It Be - The Beatles
3. A Beard of Stars - Tyrannosaurus Rex (1970)
4. Cry of Love - Jimi Hendrix
5. Rosemary Lane - Bert Jansch (1971)
6. The Madcap Laughs - Syd Barrett (1970)
7. Barrett - Syd Barrett (1970)
8. Performance soundtrack (got Jagger on it)
9. Obscured by Clouds - The Floyd (not as good as More but still a great film)
10. Curtis - Curtis Mayfield (1970)
And one for luck, 11. What's Going On - Marvin Gaye

If you want to too, Oli, I'll work on a list of M.O.R. / jaw-droppingly obvious choices just for you!
Now, I think I'll leave the land of the bland and dig out a Gene Vincent LP.

Naah, it's good to see you posting about different stuff. I love Obscured by Clouds, side-project that turned out to be just as good as the band's main work at the time. Big fan of Syd's work too. Been meaning to get into Can as well, I've only read good things about them.

The "Oli" thing is lost on me, though...

Ok, you convinced me: the Pink Floyd was a truly 60's band.


With posters to prove it...

Exactly, HG, frankly if it hasn't got a 'the' knocking around avoid it like you would a Phil Collins LP.
The first 3 45s (i.e. Syd, i.e. 1967) all 'the' and, what's this I see, they're even referred to as The Pink Floyd on the cover of my fave LP by the group, 'More'.
If it ain't got 'the' on it, you're buying a lesser product.
Don't say you haven't been warned.

I used the pre-Sgt. Pepper's criteria because the spirit of this theme is to talk about the post-60's work of artists who essentially belong to the 60's. I think Sgt. Pepper's pretty much defined a new path to follow, and it was the base for lots of new bands that made their career mostly in the 70's; that's why I'm pointing to artists who started from a previous point.

The more I think about this Hombre the more I think you are right. Some of the bands I put on my list were essentially post Pepper bands, in other words they were bigger after Pepper and more famous in the 70's than the 60's, Pink Floyd for example only really found world fame with DSOTM, The Moody Blues were a different band before DOFP and most of my personal all time favourite bands were 'born' post Pepper, Im talking about bands like Yes, Supertramp, Caravan, Gentle Giant, Eloy, King Crimson, ELP, PFM, Genesis (Gabriel era)

It all goes to show that Pepper WAS the first Prog rock album

Yes, I think you're right about your last sentence.
