I'm currently listening to Strangeways Here We Come by The Smiths:

I had forgotten how much I loved this album when I was a teen.

What album makes you feel like that?

When I was a teenager, albums were so, so expensive and therefore so rarely bought that I have never forgotten how much I loved them. Especially the first I bought when still at school, "With the Beatles". It's coming up 60 years old now, so rarely taken out of the sleeve and played.

I was into glam Rock in the early seventies then I discovered - Machine Head by Deep purple and had all their albums, I had purple wall paper, purple bed spread and purple carpet, and my mum would come into my room and shout, turn that fcucking noise down lol, Great Memories...

Haha yes my mom had a similar reaction to my liking of Korn and and a band called Machine Head ... despite being a metalhead herself she wasn't quite used to the hardcore noise of thrash and nu metal.

And in that respect I will add Korns first album, simply titled Korn and Machine Head's Burn My Eyes album to the list of forgotten Gems...

I was more into girls than music in the early years but the "Tighten Up" albums suddenly jumped to mind. Early Reggae.

Forgotten albums, that's a tough one because I have actually forgotten them, but you got me thinking and two albums came to mind - though I'll admit the first one I had to check on t'internet - 'In Blissful Company' and 'Quintessence', both by the band Quintessence. When I was going through my eastern philosophy period.
Was surprised to find they kept going, albeit individually, up until the late 1990's early 2000's.

I'm having a listen now Terry, The album I've picked is called Dive Deep, I like the album artwork and it reminds me of an album cover from one of my favourite albums that I haven't listened too for a very long time..

Lemonjelly, KY ( amazing background music for relaxing or reading)

Tubular Bells, by Mile Oldfield, it became a bit of a cliche, but listening to it again a couple of months ago made me realise that its actually quite good.

I tend to make up playlists rather than listen to whole albums ( there's always a few tracks on an album I'm not keen on ).
But Rattus Norvegicus -The Stranglers , was one I liked every track on.
I'm of that age when Donny Osmond was supposed to be every girls dream, but my tastes were more Sabbath, Purple and Led Zep. Mixed with punk.

One rarely “forgets” an album. As one’s flat is festooned with the things. However, one might overlook something that one hasn’t played for, perhaps, decades. A recent example of a re-discovery; was “The Oxford Circle Live At The Avalon Ballroom 1966” Incidentally, this disc contains ( as additional studio tracks ) their first single - “Foolish Woman/ Mind Destruction” A particular favourite of one!

My teens were an awfully long time ago, so without rummaging at the back of the stair cupboard for my old vinyls, I had to look them up to remember the titles. If my teens count up until I was 20, the ones that I can remember that I liked:
Wishbone Ash; Pilgrimage (1971), Argus (1972), There's the Rub (1974).
Allman Brothers Band; self-titled (1969)
Led Zep; Untitled (1971)
David Bowie; The Rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust (1972)
Jonathan Kelly; Twice a round the Houses (1972)
Fleetwood Mac; The Vintage Years (1975), Rumours (1977)
Outlaws; Bring it back Alive (1978)
Bob Seger; Stranger in Town (1978)

I also remember some Jethro Tull thing and Lynyrd Skynyrd and Deep Purple albums; neither of which I can remember the titles of.

The dates are when they were released, not when I bought them. I don't think I actually bought any until I got a Saturday job when I was about 17 and then I started work at 18, but all of those I would have listened to with friends or went to music shops for a listen. Anyway, I would imagine that the vinyls are close to worn out now.

I always used to pinch Alice Cooper's Welcome to My Nightmare album out of my step dads cupboard... such a class album.

Early manics do it for me today, best album ever. Like a big fresh ice cold smack in the face to wake you up, musically and lyrically, juicy elevating moments of thrash politically apt even now ... perfecto.

The Holy Bible..
