The Greatest Rock Album of All Time

No contest: Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs by Derek and the Dominos.

Then it occurred to me that it’s remotely possible, remotely I say, that not everyone agrees. 

So I said to myself, this might make an interesting Elephant discussion (just to verify the obvious.)

What do you think?

It's a good'n, with the legendary Clapton/Allman guitar interplay, as well as some great wailing unrequited love lyrics ("anyday, anyday, I can see you smile, anyway, anyway, just for a little while," "it's all wrong, but it's alright, the way that you treat me, baby," "why does love got to be so sad"…oh, if only I didn't know so well what all that's about…

My pick for all time best rock album, though, would be the incomparable Blonde on Blonde by Mr. Robert Zimmerman.

Yeah, I know it's just personal preference, but for me it's 90% about the music and only 10% the lyrics. My singer/songwriter son ( free streaming, my other son's the lead guitar ) will often say to me, did you hear that great lyric? And usually I have to say, no, what's this song about, anyway? He writes wonderful lyrics.
