    Kind of Blue - Miles Davis (essentially opened the bebop floodgates)
    Never Mind the Bollocks - Sex Pistols (brought punk into the public eye)
    Future Shock - Herbie Hancock (From jazz, hip hop is born)
    Papa's Got a Brand New Bag - James Brown (the beggining of all things funky)
    Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine (an album that really put a political message out there)

    Aw, I don't know now looking back at it...Three, sixties, guitar based albums...I guess that could maybe be a rock n roll list. Ar, but no, no Ramones? No Elvis? I'm sad no dance acts made it either. But 'Revolver' has 'Tomorrow Never Knows', that's got some beats. Eee, I'm just talking to myself now.

    I don't think there are any synthesizers on TB are there? It was mostly performed on "real instruments" such as glockenspiel, piano, various guitars, flute and of course the eponymous bells.

    :H I apologise but claim victory on moral grounds. On the original Tubular Bells 1, he used Farfisa, Lowrey and Hammond electric organs to create the album's synthetic keyboard textures as he didn't have access to the new fangled machine until later, but using the organs and a tape deck with speed adjustment, he basically had a syth in several pieces.:)
