    Camel 'Dust and Dreams'

    I also think these sum up my state of mind perfectly at any one time.
    'Heavy Horses' - Yes that is one I have given more than a few plays to. 'Songs from the wood' too.

    Ha!
    Don't worry, I expect you'll already have them all - I was the same as you, but without the Afghan!

    This is so difficult but at the moment these might be strong candidates:

    Jethro Tull - Aqualung
    Black Sabbath - Paranoid
    Kingston Wall - II
    Kauko Röyhkä - Onnen päivät
    Oliver Nelson - The blues and the abstract truth
    Loricraft / Garrard / SME / Transfiguration / Micro Seiki / Fidelity Research / Zu / Dynavector / Ensemble / Auditorium 23 / Shindo / Pioneer / RA / Genelec / JBL

    Love - 'Forever Changes'
    David Bowie - 'The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars'
    Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young - 'Deja Vu'
    The Jimi Hendrix Experience - 'Electric Ladyland'
    The Faces - 'A Nod's as Good as a Wink'









    This was really tricky and quite surprising to me, because there are things that would have been played to death if my buying habits had been different. The reason being that I used to become obsessive about buying some things - Zappa, being the most obvious example. I bought huge gobs of his back catalogue in a very short space of time, meaning that no single album got played excessively. I was lucky enough to be close to the well stocked and exceedingly numerous used record shops of Brighton at a time when most things were priced by a market that relied on turnover and therefore pretty cheaply.

    Some of those that nearly made the top 5:
    (in no particular order)

    Fleetwood Mac - 'The Pious Bird of Good Omen'
    Dexter Gordon - 'Go!'
    Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin
    Jeff Beck Group - 'Beck-Ola'
    Jefferson Airplane - 'After Bathing at Baxters'
    Gong - 'Camembert Electrique'
    The Doors - 'The Doors'
    Bob Dylan - 'Desire'
    Pixies - 'Doolittle'
    Black Sabbath - 'Black Sabbath'
    Bad Company - 'Bad Company'
    Tommy Chase - 'Groove Merchant'
    Neil Young - 'Rust Never Sleeps'

    Pink Floyd - DSOTM, Pixies - Doolittle, Kraftwerk - The Mix, Nirvana - Nevermind, Warp Records - Artifical Intelligence. Each one a huge influence I'd say.
