I don't think I'll be surprising anyone here with my vote for Maggot Brain

Friedrich B. Neechy (Oor Neechy), Wednesday, 13 February 2019 12:27 (three years ago) link

Tago Mago, honourable mentions for Sabbath, Funkadelic, Groundhogs, Sly, Isaac Hayes (though i thought you didn't like that one?), Stones, Who, Beach Boys...

What's Going On may be seen as a middle-of-the road answer, but it's perfect.
Right behind it: Tago Mago, Blue, Roots, Master of Reality, Journey in Satchidananda, First Utterance, Pawn Hearts (what a year).
Not on the list: Dez anos depois(if that counts), Songs of Love and Hate, Construção

I think I'd agree that it's not as epic a year as '70 but there are still a good number of epic albums here that I cannot choose between.

Shaved Cyborg (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 13 February 2019 13:08 (three years ago) link

Shouldn't "Electric Warrior" be on there? "Hunky Dory"? As opposed to Gila's 1st album, for instance?

Gut says Faust, head says Sly, heart says Zep, I think my spleen is suggesting Gil, endocrine system definitely rooting for Herbie.

Tago Maggot. Riot. One of those three.

Went Ptah in the last one and probably Satchidananda here.

In Den Garten Pharaos, Tago, Satori all colossi of the pantheon but Alice / Pharoah combo is moida.

*there's (Noel Emits), Wednesday, 13 February 2019 13:26 (three years ago) link

I went Ptah, too. Probably Sly this time. Or Shirley, Sabbath or Herbie.

Right now, though, Imma go listen to the Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys.

i could do a list of lesser known albums but there's a great mixcloud from last year of 24 hours of music from 1971, i think that pretty much covers everything

"Blue"

Easiest year to decide yet!

. (Michael B), Wednesday, 13 February 2019 14:10 (three years ago) link

If Maggot Brain hadn't been there I would have struggled to choose .
My fave albums by MC5, Groundhogs, Can, Ash Ra Tempel, Genesis , Serge, Fela, sly, Faces, Caravan, Flower Travellin' Band, Stones, Marvin, and Joni

then you have brilliant albums by Zep, Sabbath, Herbie, VDGG, miles, beach boys etc

Friedrich B. Neechy (Oor Neechy), Wednesday, 13 February 2019 14:16 (three years ago) link

See, now I'd say this is the most epic year yet. AR Machines, Gainsbourg, Funkadelic, Can, both Alice Coltrane records are tied for first for me, and only thin the field because I've worn out the Stones, Who, Zep, Sabbath, Traffic and Beefheart.

eva logorrhea (bendy), Wednesday, 13 February 2019 15:21 (three years ago) link

Missing:
Judee Sill - s/t
Alice Cooper - Love It to Death

Of these, Stones then Funkadelic and Groundhogs.

A Tribute To Jack Johnson is my gut: the shifting focus never wavers, incl. trumpet-guitar-keys-and back, also perceived-long-before=officially-disclosed from Cobham to DeJohnette and from McL. to Sharrock, accruing tunefulness x groove momentum. But of course Top Ten incl Funkadelic Beefheart Joni Zep

Love it to Death and Brain Capers are probably my two favorite classic rock albums at this point, since I didn't hear them and wear them out as a kid.

Friedrich B. Neechy (Oor Neechy), Thursday, 14 February 2019 19:23 (three years ago) link

its between Tago Mago and Pawn Hearts for me. I'll probably wind up voting Tago Mago though - even the big knock against it (all the fucking around on the second LP) is forgivable in context, since they're 2 separate LPs that (I gather) were not really meant to be listened to straight through the way you do on CD. I was thinking about that in regards to ELP's Tarkus (also released in '71) - did that album come off better back then because of the implication of "you don't really need to flip the LP"?

frogbs, Thursday, 14 February 2019 19:28 (three years ago) link

Long albums always sound better on LP's as there's a break while flipping the records. Yes it can be a hassle with double and triple LP's but it definitely helps with the listening.

Friedrich B. Neechy (Oor Neechy), Thursday, 14 February 2019 20:34 (three years ago) link

i would have gone for tago mago, jaki liebezeit at the top of his skills. but there is an album on that list that beats about every album in the world. i could drink a case of joni and i'd still be on my feet...

Tanz der Lemminge is such a wild panoply of psychedelic 'looks' that I can't not vote for it. Faust is a close second. Riot an equally close third. I fucking love this year.

aquaman goes to college (Drugs A. Money), Thursday, 14 February 2019 22:08 (three years ago) link

3 really great albums not on the list: Fragile (Yes), Acquiring the Taste (Gentle Giant), and Runt: The Ballad of Todd Rundgren

that last one really gets overlooked in Rundgren's catalogue, it's not really experimental and none of the songs are well known but it might actually be his most consistent album overall

frogbs, Thursday, 14 February 2019 22:15 (three years ago) link

Runt is good

I think I'd like Pawn Hearts a lot more if I had a better sounding version. The 2005 CD I've got actually sent me off to the Hoffman forums to see if it was derided over and sure enough it gets slated for being very compressed. Prog is often so badly served by remasters.

the Pawn Hearts one has some good bonus tracks on it at least. the one that really disappoints me is Least We Can Do b/c the original master sounds pretty bad to me, but the 2005 version is brickwalled to the point where it's kinda painful to listen to.

three weeks pass...

I've been listening to a playlist of albums that came out in October 1971 (pretty great moment, including the inexplicably left-out-of-this-poll Electric Warrior) and am really getting into Heron- Twice as Nice & Half the Price, a pretty loose folk rock double album where the singers routinely make each other crack up and the guitars sometimes remind me of Pavement. Like on "Big A":

Et Dieu crea l' (Michael White), Saturday, 16 March 2019 15:17 (three years ago) link

three years pass...

There are a number of "1971 album" threads to choose to revive.
I was reading a website this morning that suggested that Nektar's Journey to the Centre of the Eye was the best debut of 1971. I can neither confirm nor deny, but I started thinking that there are relatively few canonical debuts from that year - it's like there was a period of consolidation after the rush of innovation over the previous half-decade or so.

The following debut albums from this year are ranked on Acclaimed Music. Crosby and Blunstone, and perhaps John McLaughlin, were of course veteran artists making a solo or group debut:

The Mahavishnu Orchestra - The Inner Mounting Flame
John Prine
David Crosby - If I Could Only Remember My Name
Bill Withers - Just As I Am
Faust
Comus - First Utterance
Judee Sill
Colin Blunstone - One Year
Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers

Anyway, my choice for debut album of the year is Halfnelson AKA Sparks, which stands out of time as much as any proto-punk record of the year you might name.

Halfway there but for you, Sunday, 22 January 2023 17:30 (two weeks ago) link

Allman Brothers "At Fillmore East" seems a pretty big record to be missing here thus far from '71.

Rory Gallagher's "Duece" is another good LP from '71. Probably not my favorite from the year, but it is my favorite of his studio albums. His debut solo record also came out in '71.

ZZ Top's "First Album", Little Feat and Thin Lizzy were a few other notable debuts in '71.

A few more notables from '71...

Jeff Beck Group "Rough and Ready"
Humble Pie "Performance: Rockin' the Fillmore"
Jimi Hendrix "The Cry of Love"
Jethro Tull "Aqualung"
Freddie King "Getting Ready"
John Lennon "Imagine"
Grateful Dead "Skull and Roses"
Grand Funk Railroad "E Plurbius Funk"
Badfinger "Straight Up"
James Brown "Revolution of the Mind"

Just a crazy good year for LPs...

earlnash, Sunday, 22 January 2023 18:12 (two weeks ago) link

ZZ Top's "First Album", Little Feat and Thin Lizzy were a few other notable debuts in '71.

These bands are usually regarded as peaking several albums later, although I was surprised how much Phil Lynott was already himself on that first Lizzy record; I was expecting a more run-of-the-mill heavy approach.

"Did the Allman Brothers never tour outside the US?"

Got kind of curious about that myself after the question was posed. I did not figure the original band ever did as they were really only getting pretty popular with Duane Allman died. They don't appear to have played much in the 70s in Europe, but I found some notices that they headlined a festival at Knebworth in 1974.

Later on, I got to figure some of Greg Allman's arrest issues might have made it hard for him to get visas and it was probably just more profitable for them to keep playing in the US.

I did find note that Greg Allman and Cher did some dates together in Japan and Europe. Of course this tour from what is reads was also what done in the marriage for good.

It looks like they played Montreal a couple of months before Duane died.
