TGP'er Required Listening

What songs or albums should be required listening? I'm looking for albums or songs that are so musically important or profound that you just have to have heard them at least once (even if they're in a style outside your typical listening genres) to be a well grounded musician. I've got a few to suggest for such a list:

The Beatles: Abbey Road, Help, Sgt. Peppers, and Revolver

Led Zeppelin: I, IV, and Houses of the Holy

SRV: Texas Flood

The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Are you Experienced? and Bold as Love

Vivaldi: Four Seasons

Beethoven: 5th Symphony

What would you add to the list?

If you focus on the TGP part, required listening would be Robben Ford, John Mayer, and anyone who has ever played Dumble.

The best Led Zepplin ever recorded has been left out...til now.
