So basically I'm wondering what you guys consider to be among some of the strongest Classic Rock debut albums.

For one, I feel as though Boston and Chicago were two great Classic Rock bands who had amazing debut albums, and I consider theirs to be the best.

I also believe that The Allman Brothers Band and Yes had some great debut albums, too, but Boston and Chicago, to me, had the best.

The jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced is _easily_ my favourite.

Polite nods also towards Aerosmith and Led Zeppelin.

The Doors debute album is phenominal, absolutely incredible, same with Led Zeppelin's, and Layla is Derek & the Dominos debut album, so Led Zeppelin I, The Doors and Layla is tied for my favorite.

J.J. Cale, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Beatles, The Band, Pink Floyd, Simon and Garfunkel, (Sounds of Silence, not Wednesday Morning: 3 A.M., which was originally by Ben and Jerry) George Thorogood and the Destroyers, Paul Simon, The Doors, The Velvet Underground and Steppenwolf

Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac


Definitely a good album, but I feel as though the band got stronger with albums such as Then Play On and The Pious Bird of Good Omen.

Boston had one of the best debut albums in my opinion.

Its too bad that their debut was the only good album they ever made. Black Sabbath's debut is pretty strong as well.

Yeah those are some really fantastic pieces of work. The band definately were honing their unmistakable sound by that point.

huh...? Can't believe noone has mentioned Dire Straits yet. Furthermore I'd say Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Yes and The Doors.

Though not of that era, I'd say Dire Straits was the only thing in the 80's that prevented millions of people giving up and bungee jumping without a chord.

The Doors. That album is pretty stunning, and the fact that it was a debut makes it jaw-dropping.
