I would like to nominate Lou Reed's 'Transformer'. Certainly a 'classic' album, not everyone's cup of tea but critically acclaimed. Very well recorded by the team that brought us Ziggy Stardust. Standout track ' Walk On The Wild Side'

Here is my list of forum members who have yet to make an individual choice.  If I have missed anyone off, please let me know.

Next up is Billyray - so can you let me have your album choice for 8th March, and I'll set it up.

Following Billy Ray is 'Hot Rats - Frank Zappa' on 22nd March, and then, interspersed with the albums already chosen is:

Bolts2019
Crimson Donkey
Clive 197
GeeGee
JulianH
Neil Dalton
PeterBJ
Ruud
Simbo
SimonChick
SteveC
STodd

Once the list is agreed I'll put dates against the names.

Review day tomorrow.  Let's hope there are more contributors than the last one.  The whole point of the starting ther 'Classic Albums' series was to encourage people to listen to albums that they may not have otherwise listened to.  If people don't want to get involved, that's fine, it is their choice. 

If you wish this to continue, please support it.

Shouldn't we be having some introductory notes from the person who proposed this album? I find it interesting and helpful to have an insight into the reasons behind the selection.

Don't forget it is review day for Lauryn Hill.

Haven't written my review yet, but this is an album I have really enjoyed.

I'll be adding a review, but I'm away for Easter and not had chance yet. For some reason I had it in my mind it was next Sunday they were due.
