My guitar teacher turned me onto this as a teenager, still listening to it today: the ever epic Mahavishnu Orchestra's Visions of the Emerald Beyond



John McLaughlin and Jean-Luc Ponty shred this album up for nearly the entire 40 minute runtime.

Since this thread is still going strong, let me make another contribution.

Not The Velvet Underground and Niko, but the band's third album. It's almost a folk-rock album--the story is the band's gear got stolen while on tour so they had to pare down from the sonic assault of their first two albums, but for whatever reason it's a much more introspective set of songs. Check it out.

Big Country gets a bad rap for it’s one biggest hit being a little overplayed, but Steeltown is a stand out album showing off their scary rhythm section and guitar texturing while performing a tight of songs that show their Scottish roots.


I stood outside Virgin Megastore in Glasgow on a cold October morning in 1984 from 6am along with a few hundred others waiting to get a hold of a limited-edition version of that album on the day it was released.
I had played the 12" remix of the first single from the album to death for months in anticipation of the new album.
It didn't disappoint.

I've got that album, just haven't listened to it in a very long time - thanks for the reminder.


I always wanted to see them live (never got the chance)- they do some jam stuff that’s probably a lot of fun. Definitely fun to groove on guitar!

One of the Durans is playing with them now, I think. Andy. Andy? I think Andy.

The self-titled debut album from Leeds-based band 'The Music' was another album that I enjoyed at the time.
We took our youngest to see them live, and looking at this clip now he looked about the same age!
