One of the most energetic & impressive pieces of drumming would be Santana at Woodstock performing "Soul Sacrifice". The studio version from Santana 1 is great but the live version from Woodstock is just incredible! For a complete contrast of the same song listen to the live version of Soul Sacrifice released on the live album "Moonflower" which was about 8 yrs later in 1977.

Definitely "The Mule" by Deep Purple from "Made In Japan" & also "You Fool No One" from live album "Made In Europe" (not the studio version - no comparison) featuring awesome bass drumming back in 1974.

Led Zeppelin live at the Royal Albert Hall in 1970, John Bonham is absolutely awesome and it's so early on in their career and he's a madman performing a huge drum solo!

Buddy Rich at the Montreal Jazz Festival in back in the early 80's, what that man does on the drums is intimidatingly amazing!

Emerson Lake & Palmer's "Food For Your Soul", if you don't know it, you need to hear Carl Palmer assaulting that Premier kit... very very cool.

But there's so many other awesome albums...

Without a doubt, Moving Pictures is #1. Followed VERY closely by Exit Stage Left. Neil
Peart inspired so many drummers after these two albums were released. Hemispheres
ain't bad, either.

There are some great ones. I like

Beatles- Rubber Soul- Ringo Starr. This was one of the earlier albums that added to the evolution of pop/ rock drumming. Ringo plays some cool bits, like in "The Word" or "Wait".

Beatles- Abbey Road- Ringo Starr. The drumming in this album is so cool and so on time. "Here comes the Sun" is a good example.

Led Zeppelin- John Bohnham- Physical Graffiti

Led Zeppelin- Zozo (IV)

Jimi Hendrix Experience- Mitch Mitchell- Are You Experienced?

The Who- Keith Moon- Live At Leeds

Rush- Neil Peart- 2112 and Moving Pictures.

I think these are some great ones!

Well, my $.02....

Every album by Frank Zappa, from Aynsley Dunbar and the mothers of Invention, to Bozzio, Humphries, Colaiuta, Wackerman, etc...
And Every Led Zep album w/Bonzo... Contained something that the first time I listened to it made me sit up, lift the needle on the turntable, and replay it over and over again mumbling to myself..."WTF!?! How'd he do that?"

Rush's "Moving Pictures" was named as the best rock drum album ever recorded, back in the early 90's, by Modern Drummer, and I have to concur that it still is. As far as over-all best drumming album of all time, well, there will be ALOT of different opinions on that. I'm guessin' something by Williams, Rich, Colaiuta, Gadd, Bonham, Jones(Elvin), or any of the other greats of drumming. Play On! ;-)

Here's my top 5 in order of influence to me:

====================================
Steely Dan - Aja
Rush - Moving Pictures
Yes - Close to the Edge
King Crimson - Discipline
Tool - Lateralus
====================================

These are all albums that I've listened to over and over and over again and still find something new each time with both the drumming and the music. And....I can still listen to them over and over and over. Love them all.

Hey murph. I love this list. Every one listed is "top notch" And I agree that you can listen to them over and over. And that pick of Tools' "Lateralus" is certainly worth mentioning. That Danny Carey guy is the modern day odd-time master. And he pounds, too! Take Care...Play On! ;-)

I find that my opinions for topics like these don't come from skill, but from style and emotion. Like these,

B.B. King- Lonely Nights [It's a greatest hits album, so lots of drummers]
Jimi Hendrix Experience- self titled debut [Mitch has such a fiery feel on Fire]
The Who- Who's Next [Enough's been said about Keith]


These are some. If I went into detail, I could make a novel. A looong novel.

I bought the Led Zeppelin live CD "How the West Was Won" yesterday and put it on in the car (Had a four hour drive). Not only does it now get my vote for this thread, but also confirms my belief that Led Zeppelin is/was the best band to have existed, and that Bonham is the pinnacle of drumming (again, from my perspective).

Best Drumming album of All Time? There are so many that I couldn't even begin to guess: everything from Led Zeppelin to Buddy Rich. Since I have no real favourite,I'll just list some favoured Artists or Tracks that I like to practice with....

1.Emerson Lake And Palmer: Tarkus. Great ensemble playing from Carl Palmer and I love the rather crabby time signatures...
2.Yes: Close To The Edge. One of Bill Bruford's finest performances in Yes,"Siberian Khatru" is his other greatest one...
3.Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin 1. John Bonham's drumming defines the word Chutzpah...
4.Black Sabbath: Black Sabbath. Bill Ward's methodical approach to drumming is refreshing and still stings 37 years later...
5.The Lyrics: Wake Up To My Voice. Great Psych number with killer drums from Jack Flannery...
6.Bubble Puppy: Hot Smoke And Sassafras. David Fore does a great job handling all of those switchbacks..
7.The Beatles: Revolver. In "She Said She Said" Ringo maps out the road that Bruford would follow, "Silly Fills" and all....
8.Jimi Hendrix: Are You Experienced? Can't ever go wrong with Mitch Mitchell...
9. Deep Purple: The Book Of Taliesyn. Ian Paice sounds young,hungry and ferocious..
10.The Byrds: Younger Than Yesterday. Great in-the-pocket playing from Michael Clarke...or Jim Gordon....or whomever ghosted on this LP...
11.King Crimson: In Wake Of Poseidon. Amazing drums from Michael Giles.If you ever wondered where Neil Peart got part of his muse...look no further...
12.Rush: Power Windows. And speaking of Neil Peart....If I have to pick only one Rush LP,this one is as good as any...

For what it is worth, on Judas Priest's "Sin After Sin", Simon Phillips played drums on that entire recording.

Presence - Zep (achillies last stand does it for me)
Ghost in the Machine - Police (style, not substance)
Steeltown - Big Country (way underrated)
Test for Echo - Rush (this is when he became a real drummer, no longer a robot)

Blood Sugar Sex Magik by Red Ho Chili Peppers is probably my favorite album drum wise. Theres just so much groove and attitude in the drums. Long live Chad Smith.

Dave Matthews Band - Before Those Crowded Streets with Carter Beauford.
Rush - Moving Pictures with Neil Peart.
Sting - Ten Summoner's Tales with Vinnie Colaiuta.
Karizma - Document with Vinnie Colaiuta.
Tool - Aenima with Danny Carey.
Porcupine Tree - In Absentia with Gavin Harrison.
Fredrik Thorendal - Sol Niger Within with Morgan Agren.
Opeth - Damnation with Martin Lopez.
Cynic - Focus with Seni Reinert.
Death - Symbolic with Gene Hoglan.
Yes - Close to the Edge with Bill Bruford.
King Crimson - Red with Bill Bruford again.
Paatos - Kallocain with Ricard Nettermalm. This is an obscure one but goody. Soft rock for the most part, besides the first track. Beautiful quiet palying all through out and a great sound. I like this guy.

That's all I got, plenty of great stuff in there.

[quote=DogBreath;2046]No need, I was a Cub Scout thirty years ago when you actually had to work for the merit badges. The code for the letters is this:

Y = - . - -
Y = - . - -
Z = - - . .

Just say them out loud as "dash" and "dot" and you will hear the rhythm that is repeated over and over at the beginning of the song.

I have been a Rush fan for 25 years and "Moving Pictures" was one of my the "drumming" albums that really influenced me. Thanks for the trivia DogBreath. I had always heard about YYZ but that confirmed it.

Around the same time Spring Session M by Missing Persons (Terry Bozzio of course) came out. Thatalbum really blew me away as well.

There are many I like and these are my current "most listened to". I am sure it will be different next month.

I suggest Rush - Moving Pictures. Neil Peart took drumming to new heights with this album. If you can listen to "YYZ" without tapping your feet, beating your hands on your legs, and nodding your head, you have no pulse.

Bonus Trivia Question: Do you know what the significance of the letters "YYZ" is in reference to the song?
Well, now I know . . . Did it also inspire Fly By Night? :) What is it in 11/8? Well now that the mystery has been decoded, even I can write a song.

My favorite Rush song is La Villa Strangiato. I love that syncopated 7/8 groove in the middle. (You could make a "list your favorite Peart 7/8 groove" thread.)

I dated two girls in the late 70s who were both big Rush fans. They don't make chicks like that any more.


Hemispheres . . . loved that album . . think I'll put it on. But not my favorite.

It would have to be Aja with the Purdie 'Shuffle' on Home at Last, Jim Keltner on Josie, Rick Marotta and Gadd . . . Gotta be the best drum album for me. Great album if your not a big Jeff Porcaro fan. I guess he was busy with Toto. Now if he were also on it, that would have really been the deal. Unless he were on "I Got the News."

Purdie will be in my hometown at a clinic. I can't believe that the guy who played on all the Beatles tracks would need to do clinics. I'll have to ask him what happened to the money.

"Learn to play the saxophone, I'll play just what I feel. Drink Scotch Whiskey all night long, and die behind the wheel . They got a name for the winners in the world, I want a name when I lose,.they call Alabama the 'Crimson Tide' . . .

. . . Call me Deacon Blues."

thank you, Pretty.

. . . nuff said.

Well I don't know if this is the best drumming album of all time, but the first Bob Marley And The Wailers album I bought was "Burnin" and Aston "Family Man" Barrett on drums blew my mind.Check out the rhythm section on I Shot The Sherriff , it's sooo slinky!
