      Joni Mitchell's Clouds
      I have friends who are big Joni Mitchell fans and I have lost count of the number of times I have tried to get into Blue, which is considered by many to be one of the all time best albums. Sure I like a couple of songs she has written particularly Woodstock, except not by her. I find her voice mostly grating and irritating Big Yellow Taxi and Both Sides Now being the exceptions

      The other album I can’t get the plaudits for is Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison. Annoying as I like to think I am open minded on most music, especially from the 60’s and 70’s

      Oh dear!? I've been playing The Hissing Of Summer Lawns a lot lately. I find her voice soothing, usually after listening to Mark E Smith
      Johnny Cash live at San Quentin is a great album (except for one or two God songs)

      Stand up by Jethro Tull
      Crosby, Stills and Nash

      Two of 1969's finest and very listenable to this very day.
      CSN is a superb album any time . . . I keep a copy in the car . . .good for singing practice!

      I thought it was just me. I know she's revered by the critics and by several of my friends (and Mrs Gwylan) but I really can't into her - it's not just her voice, I'm not wild about most of her songs either. See also Laura Nyro for another critic fave that leaves me cold

      So does the ranking look about right, which of these do you still listen to regularly, or which ones you played but now never give it a listen.

      For me the top 10 could be in any order, and I still listen to the top 5 with probably Tommy more frequently than the other four.
      Highlighted the ones I still listen to to varying degrees and so which have, for me, stood the test of time.

      Probably 'Abbey Road' tbh, it's my favourite Beatles album and my favourite out of the list provided, will see if I can find any more.

      edit:

      Even just for the title track, one of my favourite songs (I haven't heard the album all the way through), 'A Salty Dog' by Procol Harum
      'I’m big and I’m loud and I never let anybody know what I'm feeling. Sometimes it’s so difficult…I..I really like you, Halo' 'I like you too, Toy. You’re my best friend' 'Sure. Best friends. That’s what I meant.'
      'So put a church key in your pocket, we'll hop that freight train in the hall'

      Her best album sure, not one of the all time best albums though imo. I can understand her voice grating, I will happily listen to the whole blue album but a listen every now and again is enough.

      I couldn't make the gig, despite having tickets, but when they played at the Brighton centre a few years ago, they had dressing rooms on separate floors . . .that's how much love there is between them!
