Top 50 Musical Masterpieces

Oxford English dictionary definition: “a work of art of supreme quality, or the greatest work produced by a particular artist”

Sometimes, rarely, a musician or band will create a masterpiece; a song or musical piece that transcends time and musical genres.

Joni Mitchell – Blue

Joni Mitchell created Blue in 1971, in Hollywood, pretty much all by herself, except for an engineer (Henry Lewy) and musical contributions on a small number of tracks by James Taylor (guitar) Ross Kunkel (percussion), Stephen Stills (bass and guitar on 1 track) and a beautiful example of ethereal slide guitar on a couple of tracks by notable session musician “Sneaky” Pete Kleinow.

Mike Oldfield Tubular Bells

Few would argue that Tubular Bells, this timeless masterpiece, was created by a hugely talented artist who was still a teenager at the time of its conception.

King Crimson - In The Court of the Crimson King

In The Court of the Crimson King was a debut album by a brand new band, an album which was to become one of the most influential and memorable progressive rock albums in the history of the genre.

Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon

A new album by Pink Floyd was always something to be savoured. Right from the early days I marvelled at the magical album titles that this band came up with, A Saucerful of Secrets and Piper at the Gates of Dawn both triggered images of far off lands populated by far-out people and, although they did not entirely deliver on the promises made by the title, they were good - bloody good.
