 30 Favorite Influential Albums from High School PT 1


I love music. All kinds. It’s a fact that I listen to classical, Contemporary Christian, rock, folk, Celtic, bluegrass, country, Gospel, R&B, blues, Motown, Texas Swing, and more. Wow.

So I decided I would share with you some of my favorite recorded albums of all time. These albums are part of the sound track of my life. These have been particularly influential on the way I play piano and guitar, and perhaps the way I sing some songs. I wanted to include 50 albums, but that would take a lot of time. So, let’s add them to another blog and podcast.

These 30 Favorite Influential Albums are in no particular order. Except the first one, Abbey Road by The Beatles. Back in my day you were either a Beatles fan or a Rolling Stones fan. You were either Coke or Pepsi. You were either surfer or goat roper. [this could go on forever!] I was a Dr. Pepper fan in reality that loved The Beatles. Abbey Road is my all time favorite recorded album. Many people love The Beatle’s White Album, or Sergeant Pepper, or Revolver or Rubber Soul. But, there are so many classic songs on Abbey Road and the recording is just amazing. I highly recommend you listen to Abbey Road at least once in your lifetime.
