    The Band, Last Waltz. They would have LOTS of company for that one.

    Steely Dan has done this on tour, they would play a city for a few nights and each show was an album in it's entirety. I would like to have been at the Aja show.

    Band: Van Halen

    Album: Van Halen (1978)

    It was their very first album and I think its a masterpiece.

    We are talking about the band at the time the album was released, not the band today (if possible), correct?

    So many great options... for me it would be about 'a moment in time', not just the band or album. I don't have a favorite, so I'm not picking one. My picks are based on the show as I assume it would be:

    Operation Ivy/ Operation Ivy
    The Replacements/ Tim
    Public Enemy/ It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back
    Bob Marley/ Legend (which would be a tough show... 'cause he was dead when it was released)
    Miles Davis/ Kind of Blue
    Nirvana/ Nevermind
    The Clash/ London Calling
    The Police/ Outlandos D'Amour or Reggatta de Blanc
    'Stones/ Exile
    Beastie Boys/ Paul's Boutique

    I saw the Pixies do Doolittle a few years ago. One of the best shows I've been to!

    There is a good two-part documentary on HBO right now about Elvis Presley. It features a lot of clips of his 1968 "comeback" TV concert. I would loved to have been at some of the tapings for that broadcast. Thing is, in 1974 I had a chance to see him for free at a concert at Univ of MD as an usher. I had been a fan since I was very young kid, but by then he was really out of style compared to hard rockers like Led Zep, etc, so I declined usher job and went home for the weekend instead. Always regretted not seeing him, even if he was the over the hill Elvis by then.

    Random thoughts: ( of course I'd prefer the artist/band be in the moment of the time the album was produced, (with the exception of maybe Steely Dan) rather than 20-50 years later, so a time transport is necessary :) )

    Bob Dylan - Blond on Blond
    Joni Mitchell - Hejria
    Grateful Dead - Europe 72
    John Coltrane - Blue Train
    David Bromberg - How Late'll ya Play
    Van Morrison - Moodance Album
    The Doors - LA Woman or Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine
    Stones - Sticky Fingers
    Billie Holiday - Lady Sings the Blues
    Joe Cocker - Mad Dogs and Englishman
    Miles Davis - Miles Ahead
    Cowboy Junkies - The Trinity Session
    Elton John - Caribou
    Emmylou Harris - Spyboy Album

    Gee, there's so many, I could be here all day ogsmile
