    Some ride the fence.

    This one doesn't. ;)

    Back to the OP for a minute. Does anyone remember hearing Jaco and Donna Lee when it first came out in 76? How'd it go over?

    First thought of "I Don't Know".

    Don't know if "Yankee Rose" counts, due to Crazy from the Heat EP.

    If one disqualifies Crazy From The Heat as an EP, Yankee Rose is a good one.

    At the time, Led Zeppelin could very well have been considered a solo album as Jimmy's band The Yardbirds had just broken up. Not to mention that some of the material on LZI was taken from the Yardbirds catalog.

    I'm not really serious, just thought it was an interesting way to look at it after reading that comment.

    If you discount Wonderwall and Electronic Sound, then George Harrison -- I'd Have You Anytime belongs on the list.
