Top Albums Of 1971
10 Nektar
Journey to the Center of the Eye
9Pharaoh Sanders
8 Mahavishnu Orchestra
The Inner Mounting Flame

This isn't as good as Birds on Fire, but this album showed these guys were unbelievably good. Some of the best fusion ever made.

The better of the two Yes albums released in '71 (better by a mile).
6David Bowie
Hunky Dory

I like the album, but find it's a bit inconsistent. That said, the good songs on the album more than make up for it.
5Freddie Hubbard
Straight Life

More awesome jazz from Hubbard, further strengthening his repertoire.
4 Frank Zappa
Fillmore East: June 1971

Frank Zappa live, is there much more I need to say? Any live recording this guy does is absolute gold. Really good setlist on this one as well.
Maggot Brain

This is a good album, but the title track makes the whole thing. Possibly the best guitar solo track I've ever heard; Eddie Hazel absolutely kills it.
In the Land of Grey and Pink

Here's an album I haven't listened to in quite some time, I have to revisit it again soon. However, I think this album is absolutely stellar. Spacey in the right moments, quirky, all around great.
1 Donald Byrd
Ethiopian Knights

This is a really fantastic album. Byrd is spot on the whole thing. The whole jazz funk style is in full swing, but what really puts this album over the top for me is his rendition of Palchelbel's Canon, titled 'Jamie' on the album. It's absolutely fantastic.
