Re: the best album of all time
Court of the Crimson King.
I think Red is a better album. CotCK is good, but Red has more punch.
The drum syncopation in CotCK is unreal. I am in awe every time I hear it.
An obscure favorite is the The Dixie Hummingbirds "Who We Are(?)" album. Some of the best a cappella ever. If you have never heard it their rendition of "Ezekiel Saw the Wheel", find it.
What a trip down memory lane.
