There are not many of them but this one is the one. Rev Horton Heat.
I used to catch the Rev at the Metro in the early 2000s. Right after I turned 21. 5 bucks a ticket and 2 bucks for a jack and coke.
I can think of a number of books that changed my life in fundamental ways but no records.
Records that changed my perception of what music could be include:
"Kind of Blue" - Miles Davis
"We're Only in it for the Money" - Mothers of Invention
"Time Further Out" and "Live at Carnegie Hall" - Dave Brubeck Quartet
"Hot Tuna" - Hot Tuna
"My Feet are Smiling" - Leo Kottke
I'm not sure about "changed my life"... but it made me want to learn to play the guitar which has certainly been the single most profound action I've taken which, er... changed my life!
The first two Butterfield Blues Band records and Supersession made me pick up a guitar and learn the blues. That changed my life. No question.
”This record changed my life.”
And I thought you were referring to your marriage...nuthin’ personal, but that’s one record I never plan to spin
Not a huge Bruce fan, but they looked like they were having fun, much more fun than my 14 year old self was having, and that guitar.. what is that guitar? the Beatles don't have that guitar, that guitar is really cool..
I'm pretty sure that record changed my life as well
I'm an old fart. Sgt Pepper's was what turned my head around.
Sera Una Noche, on MA Recordings
Blonde on Blonde put a definite twist on my teenage brain.
This one led to me getting together with the lady who I married a couple of years later. Didn't stop us getting divorced though; it's good, but not that good
Black Sabbath Paranoid, I was 10 years old and was listening to my older brothers records. Change my whole outlook on music.
Many, many records have "changed my life".....in one way or another....but "Meet The Beatles" did the most.
The first album I discovered on my own with no influence from my three older brothers. It made me take up playing guitar.
After casually getting into the Grateful Dead I picked up Working Mans Dead & American Beauty but after getting One From The Vault and hearing the Dead in all their mid 70’s romp, I was hooked for life.
Definitely life changing!
This one for me
Being an "old f@rt" for me it was the instrumental "Pipeline" by the Chantays. I could not believe that wonderous sound coming from the old Radiola mantle "wireless" when I was about 10/11 y.o.
Annoyed the olds until I got a guitar for my birthday and there followed some wonderful years of playing instrumental music in bands. We were so young that we'd have to get to the "gigs" on our bikes ............guitar across the handle bars............amp tied to the port carrier at the back. We used to play for the Marching Girls Association ham wheel on the steps of a local hotel around Christmas time. They'd pay us 10 shillings roughly $1.00 in today's money.
For me it was Johnny Cash and Chet Atkins from my parents' collection, but after I first heard Jeff Beck's Blow By Blow and Wired, it was on.
Van Halen I made me want to play guitar.
In Step by SRV, Rocks by Aerosmith, 2112 by Rush, and the Bluesbreakers Beano album all had guitar player life changing effects.
But Band Of Gypsys is THE one. It taught me what an electric guitar CAN do. No player or recording, before or since, has had such a profound effect on me.
Axis Bold As Love
ya, I lived the Beatles, Stones, Yardbirds, Lovin'Spoonful, Rascals, Moby Grape, even Cream's new Fresh Cream, and Truth wasn't far behind.... but Axis made the world a different place
