Vinyl Digzing

Finding a bunch of old records kept up at my grandmas house? pretty cool. Finding out that some of them are pretty kick ass...even better. first half is some highlights of those albums...concluded with some tasty digs in the second half. Oh, and rec something if it needs to be.
1 Jimi Hendrix
Hendrix in the West


Tbh I didnt know this record existed, released posthumously.
2 Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Emerson, Lake & Palmer


Staple album in all of prog music, Keith Emerson is a god. playing piano/keyboards myself, I see him as a pioneer in everything that is keyboards/synths today.
3Jefferson Airplane
Surrealistic Pillow


This was already one of my favorite albums, so when I discovered it in its original wrapping...jackpot.
4 Marvin Gaye
What's Going On


Never really paid much attention to his genre, but it's usually ranked among the top albums of all time. I'll give it a shot.
5Jethro Tull
Aqualung


Once again this is one of my favorite albums of all time, and now I can play it on the vinyl is was meant to be played on. Personally I think it's one of their best, just ahead of TaaB.
6Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin IV


My dad was a big zeppelin fan, so I found II-IV. IV is my favorite out of those albums, and I could probably re-sell it if he didn't write his name across the album in huge letters...
7Traffic
John Barleycorn Must Die


Don't listen to too much Traffic, any recs? Ive seen this album on a lot of 'Top Prog albums' lists...so I'll listen to it and decide for myself I suppose.
8 Eric Clapton
416 Ocean Boulevard


Who doesn't like them some Clapton?
9 Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Trilogy


Another legendary album by this supergroup...I can't get enough of the album and would recommend that anyone who hasn't heard it should probably get a copy of it.
10 B.B. King
L.A. Midnight


From what I have of King, I like. It's nothing to get jacked up about, but sometimes when I'm in a chill mood i'll put on his hits, it's no wonder the man has been touring since the 40s.
11Mr. Bungle
California


Diggin this shit...this album is godly. What else sounds similiar to it?? Not often does the genre on Sputnik say "other" so what are some recs?
123
Wake Pig


Smaller band that has very good musicianship. I do not personally play guitar, but if i was really good I would learn how to play Bramfatura. It sounds amazing and the whole album is very solid.
13The Mars Volta
Octahedron


After a few listens of this album, I really like it. It's grown on me and I think it's put together very well.
14 Moongarden
Songs From The Lighthouse


Didn't think Italy would ever put out a prog band...but hey these guys are good. Catchy stuff
15 ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of the Dead
The Century of Self
16Minus The Bear
Planet of Ice


This band seems like somewhat of a Sputnik favorite, is this their best album? I like what I hear from them, and if it is their best then what else would sound good?
17 King Crimson
Larks' Tongues in Aspic


Obviously this is not their best, but I like it a lot. I was at a vinyl store the other day with my buddy and picked this up along with In the Court....considered that a pretty damn good day
18Eminem
The Marshall Mathers LP


Will this album ever get old/outdated? No, no it will not. While he shows the world that he really doesn't care about anyone, the lyrics are deep and Stan is one of the best rap songs out there. I don't care about what people say about him now, but this is still one of the best.
19 Sigur Ros
( )


When I want to listen to some post-rock, I automatically think of these guys and maybe Godspeed!. Imo they are the best in their genre, even with bands like mono and explosions following close behind.
20Demians
Building an Empire


After some convincing by people to listen to this album, it's growing on me. Opening track is good, and this band needs more attention.
