Nice thread revival TJ! (Nice to see you, say hi to the tiny one heart)

If the past seven semi-sheltered months of old-old-oldies (c.1954-66) streaming every afternoon (as card games+whiskey accompaniment), has taught me anything, it’s that there are quite a few really excellent rocknroll debuts (usually 12 songs, 30ish minutes) as far back as 1957s “The Chirping Crickets”. But I dunno if that one – like so many others – is a *real* LP, or just an assembly of already-recorded songs. 

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Are You Experienced is a pretty wicked debut. I love Piper At the Gates of Dawn and Music From Big Pink as well, but its hard to come up with a debut album that tops Hendrix.

There are many 60s debuts I’d easily rate above PPM , but they’re all post-1963. 

The following people thank Von Bontee for this post:

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.
