Best Album Sides


Recommended Posts

This is actually a harder subject to figure than you think........you will have one "good" or "OK" song that pales against an otherwise "all killer" lineup.

And as much as I like most of the Beatles' "White Album", there are actually a couple of duds thrown in there.

As far as consistency goes, I'm partial to side one of Led Zeppelin's "In Through the Out Door"( "In The Evening", etc) Ditto for side one of Badfinger's "Wish You Were Here"


Beach Boys-"In Concert"-side 4(two-disc set)

New Order-"Substance"-side 2

Here's one that I bet NO ONE would pick:

Side 2 of the Carpenters' "Now & Then." The side began with "Yesterday Once More", and then segued into a radio dj introducing the next batch of songs, all from the 1960's which Karen and Richard performed. It was a neat concept, with a radio station phone-in contest in between songs such as "One Fine Day", "Johnny Angel", and "Deadman's Curve.
