I like 10CC up to Bloody Tourists and the second album is excellent.

Oh yes, Sheet Music is my favourite of theirs

also:
Fairport - What We Did On Our Holidays
Rory Gallagher - Deuce

Both certainly better than the debut!

Interesting Felix.

I agree with you re: Fairport - Judy was no Sandy and they sound like an imitation Airplane on the debut

BUT

Rory? In my view the debut is at least as good as Deuce - after all it does have VC on piano

All right, I'll say it:

Not one of their best, but great nonetheless.

Pixies - Doolittle
Frank Zappa - Hot Rats
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Santana - Abraxas
Jethro Tull - Stand Up

Tough
