I played the Bozz Scaggs album Lowdown to death and the Supremes Arranged and Produced by Jimmy Webb I just love their voices on that one. What Can I Say is a masterpiece by Boz Scaggs and I love the ladies he used for that album and Down Two and Then Left.

Meet the Temptations in the 60's.
Super Taylor or Walter Jackson in the 70's.
Dennis Edwards - A Song for you/Memories, and Anita Baker's Rapture, in the 80's.
Nothing in the 90's, unless it was Yanni, or Bach.

In the sixties The early Dionne Warwick albums were my faves for ...ahem...amorous moments.
The Sam and Dave album Hold on Im Comin, Otis Blue, In a mellow mood, the Tempts,and the Delfonics first album, also for those amorous moments.When Poogie let out those wails, let me tell you mmm...mmm...mmmm.!!!
The seventies were the first Carpenters and Bread albums,the Flaming Ember, Freda Payne, Isley Bros 3plus 3, Heatwave,
The eighties, B.B and C.C. Winans Heaven album,
dont look any further Dennis Edwards and the nineties were mostly disposable except for the Waiting to exhale soundtrack..

Sis Detroit - kinda sly slippin' "A Song For You" in there like it was Dennis' solo joint - LOL. Now "Wings of Love" that really was Dennis album, well Dennis, Jeffrey Bowen, Sly Stone, Donald Baldwin & Billy Bass' album. I don't know if folks realize how much Sly was involved with Motown around '75/'76. He worked under the name Jimmy Ford because he was going thru bankruptcy at the time. Anyhow his contributions helped secure a deal for his sister Rose "Stone" Banks., who's album was also produced by Jeffrey Bowen. Of course "A Song For You", like the Chairman of the Board's "Skin I'm In", Ruth Copeland's "I Am What I Am", The Undisputed Truth's "Cosmic Truth" & "Higher Than High" albums as well as Lenny Williams solo debut on Motown are pretty much "lost" Funkadelic albums.
Billy Nelson who's best known for playing with Funkadelic, played bass on "Memories" and its one of his greatest musical memories because the orchestral arrangement was built around his bass-line.
As for myself, the "one" for me is - Kool & the Gang - Light of Worlds 1974

Probably the Beatles 1962-1966. It was my first album of non-children's music which I received as a present for either my 9th or 10th birthday (memory is a bit fuzzy). It's on red translucent vinyl. I played the heck out of that thing.

What about "You Can Be Anyone This Time Around" by Timothy Leary? I thought everybody would name that one. JUST KIDDING.. My most played LP is "Bo Diddley's 16 All-Time Greatest Hits". I got it when I was 15 and have never gotten tired of it. I love the Chess Records sound from the '50s, and this record just rocks. The guitars sound like they came from Heaven, most of the songs are hilarious; it's a winner. Proabaly my most played 45 is "'Til You Come Back to Me" by Aretha, or "Elephant Walk" by Donald and The Delighters.
|By LTLFTC (220.127.116.11) on Friday, March 14, 2003 - 03:27 pm:|
That "Bo" lp is one of my most played too. I also loved looking at the pictures of Bo's other albums on the back cover (love that star shaped guitar). Other most played--
Temptations Greatest Hits (the blue-cover one from '66 or so)
American "Rubber Soul"
Funkadelic - 'Maggot Brain"
Chuck Berry - Golden Decade
Dionne Warwick - Greatest Hits
Velvet Underground - Loaded
Oh yeah, 'Fugs 1st Album'

....Ed Sanders strikes again?
During the mid '60's, I purchased out of a cut out bin about half the Roulette oldies re-issue series and probably destroyed (in order) my parent's then my first roomate's ears with those things. Wonderful late '50's early '60's stuff.
Wish I had the rest of them.

I wore out "What's Goin On." and "Let's Get It On." I had to purchase these LP's over again. I still have both of each. (And the cds)
I do believe that "MOST PLAYED ALBUM OF "ALL TIME" would have to be both those. If I had to pick one. It would be "What's Goin On."
|By SisDetroit (188.8.131.52) on Saturday, March 15, 2003 - 08:39 pm:|
No, it would be "Let's Get It On." Umm! Oh my, this is hard. :o)
|By rotweillerfan (184.108.40.206) on Saturday, March 15, 2003 - 09:01 pm:|
Well, I wore out a 45 of the Breakaways "That's How it Goes" and whatever was on the flip side. The 45 actually turned kind of white I played it so much. Still love that song!

I've got the solution for you. I have a "twofer" CD released by Motown from the mid-late 80s with both the "What's Going On" and "Let's Get it On" LPs on a single CD. You can call that one your favorite. It was my first Motown CD that I purchased.
|By SisDetroit (18.104.22.168) on Sunday, March 16, 2003 - 10:12 pm:|
OK, thank you Livonia Ken. That is so thoughtful of you. That settles it. That is my "All time most played" LP. :o)
