good call... those RCA sessions are really good, even though they're mostly of demo quality. i love the different versions of "Warsaw" and "They Walked in Line." It's funny that the band hated the added keyboards like on "Transmission" and "No Love Lost" when there's so much more keyboard arrangements on "Unknown Pleasures," which sounds so right with Martin Hannet's production.

I'm now playing the US version of New Order 316 which i got from J&R today for only $9.99! i didn't even know it was released in the US...

Traffic - Mr. Fantasy (1967)

CS&N - Crosby, Stills, and Nash (1969)

Paul Kantner/Jefferson Starship - Blows Against the Empire (1970)
Wow, some absolutely great picks there (I omitted some of my less favorite ones) especially the Country Joe one. Its now totally obscure, but this is a truly amazing album.

Another nomination:

Janis Joplin & the Holding Company-Cheap Thrills

And, bending the rules a bit, the first Neil Young and Crazy Horse album, Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere-(May, 1969) recorded in just a couple of days, every song is perfect.

And speaking of Arlo Guthrie, he used to tell a great story in concert how he was invited to his first and only Presidential inaguration by Chip Carter (Jimmy Carter's son). He ran across Chip that night, who told him that he found a copy of Alice's Restaurant in the White House music library. For Arlo, this solved the mystery of the reason for the 19 1/2 minute gap in the Nixon tapes.
