The Jimi Hendrix Experience Axis: Bold as Love
A fantastic album. I personally find it the weakest of the JHE's three albums, but that doesn't men it isn't great. Songs like "Bold As Love", "If 6 Was 9", "Little Wing", and "Castles Made Of Sand" are still considered to be some of Hendrix's finest work. I think what I love about this album is how it is so unlike any other album of his, it isn't so much about sex and voodoo, but more focused on actual love and experiences in his life. An amazing piece of work.

The Byrds Turn! Turn! Turn!
A quality album. Alot of good covers, and of course "Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season)" An important album in the careers of an excellent group.

About as good an album as you can possibly find. It starts with the beautiful "Sunday Morning" yet changes moods constantly. "I'm Waiting For My Man", a story about a cocaine deal, "Venus In Furs" is out there and almost psychadelic. It really feels like a testament to Andy Warhol and the whole Factory scene going on at the time. A phenominal collection of songs.

Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band Trout Mask Replica
The best avant garde album out there. Captain Beefheart does a nice job of compiling an album filled with bizarre music, while still giving off a bluesy feel to it. A very good album overall.

About as good an album as you can find. Jim Morrison's poety, Ray Manzarek's amazing keyboard skills, John Densmore and Robby Krieger showing their mastery of their instruments. All of these are the formula for the success of this album. I can't think of one bad song on this album. Even the less popular songs like "End Of The Night", "Twentieth Century Fox", and "Back Door Man" are fantastic and go perfectly with the album. The big hits like "Break On Through", "Light My Fire", "The Crystal Ship", and "The End" add to the dark/haunting yet poetic flow of the entire album. This could seriously be considered the greatest album of all-time.
