    A lot of the ones I would have said have already been mentioned but here’s one I didn’t see and it’s an album I think it’s great start to finish.

    Pete Yorn : Music for the Morning After

    Wow, thanks all! Soooo many great albums here, and some of them are even first albums (LOL JK ;))

    Hardly, but as someone else stated it's not relevant to the thread anyway........

    I thought the Doobies first album was great, but not quite good enough to toss out as a "greatest first album ever" nominee.

    d'oh. Another good catch.

    Really? It's not bad at all but I wouldn't call it anything great. I doubt he would either, frankly.

    Many people would disagree strongly with your assessment. Jaco and Metheny-what more needs to be said?

    Too many qualifiers, but I can think of five, in no order of preference:

    The Allman Brothers Band
    The Beatles, Please Please Me
    The Paul Butterfield Blues Band

    Howlin' Wolf, Moanin' in the Moonlight
    The Mothers of Invention, Freak Out!
