    Nick Drake - Pink Moon. I think I read somewhere that it sold under 10,000 when it was released.

    If I had second it would be the first Big Star album.

    Being that this is a small area, and a specific Music related poll, it can stay..... It will get lost in the polls section....

    "Just An Old Fashioned Love Song" by Paul Williams.

    This diminutive lyricist isn't the most handsomest man the world, but he stands tall among this generations most talented songwriters. And he certainly gets overlooked in the shuffle, mostly I feel, because he wrote hits for The Carpenters.

    Just in this release are three big hit singles...for other artists, though..."Just An Old Fashioned Love Song", "We've Only Just Begun", and "Let Me Be The One". His vocal interpretations are his own unique takes, not copies of the Hit version...and that's what make this a special album. This, and the soundtrack to "Bugsy Malone" are out in special, Japanese mini-lp CD versions. A little pricey.

    This was a hard one to chose, as it was up against his soundtrack to the "cult" motion picture "Phantom Of The Paradise". Get the DVD just out on a budget line. Another special set of songs, that stand alone from the film, as great songwriting. Check it out.

    Just great songwriting and something you know is special.

    Well, way too many possibilities here (I'm sure everyone has got a ton of albums they think others should hear), so the best way to handle it is to just throw out a few off the top of the head (I know the original post asked for 1, but I'll cheat by doing by genre):

    "World" ==> Hoven Droven - Groove

    Heavy Metal ==> Rainbow - Rising

    Jazz ==> Duke Pearson - The Right Touch

    Pop ==> The Posies - Amazing Disgrace

    Rock ==> The Call - Reconciled

    Prog ==> Anglagard - Hybris

    Blues ==> Hound Dog Taylor - Hound Dog Taylor and The Houserockers

    Electronica ==> u-ziq - In Pine Effect

    Sorry I'm not providing much extra info at the moment...

    David Bowie - the Buddha of Suburbia

    In the words of David Buckely, who wrote 'the complete guide to the music of David Bowie', The Buddha of Suburbia therefore stands as the great lost Bowie album.

    Highly recommended.

    G. Love and Special Sauce - Self titled

    The first, and as far as I know only, blues hip-hop band on the planet. So groovy you just gotta smile. This is the ultimate laid-back party CD. Meaning, it puts everyone in a good mood and you can play it low for mood music or crank it up and dance.

    Who knows, maybe this CD will get its props now that the song "Cold Beverage" is on a Coor's Light commercial.
