What's your favourite - there's plenty to choose from.
For me it's Neil Young's Harvest but Judy Collins runs him close with Wildflowers

The Drifters Saturday Night at the Movies. Put the record on my record player and dance whilst dusting. Young at heart ❤️ that's me.

Because, until quite recently you could only get the 1958 original on vinyl. You can now get CD, but reviews slate it as rather crap quality!

Couldn’t pick just one single album, so many to choose from.
Anything by Steeleye Span, especially ‘Below the Salt’, ‘Now We Are Six’, ‘Commoners Crown’ and later ones like ‘They Called Her Babylon’.
‘The Olympia Concert’ and ‘The Dublin Concert’ and ‘Brian Boru’ by the Breton musician Alan Stivell.
Jethro Tull’s ‘Songs From the Wood’ and ‘Heavy Horses’, also ‘Minstrel in the Gallery and ‘Thick as a Brick’.
Anything by the Maestro who is Mike Oldfield, a musical genius.
His first four albums are his best, ‘Tubular Bells’, Hergest Ridge’, Ommadawn’ and ‘Incantations’, just superb.
‘The Tain’ and ‘The Book of Invasions’ by the Celtic rockers Horslips.
Anything by the quirky talent that is The Incredible String Band, you can’t ‘pigeonhole’ their varied and mixed style.
Having recently bought a cheap Greatest Hits album from Sainsbury’s, I have belatedly discovered the talent that is Bob Dylan, what a wordsmith.

Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by the Beatles has been named the Favourite Studio Album in Britain.

Reissued last year, the 1967 album tops the home sales of records by Adele, Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Amy Winehouse, Oasis, Michael Jackson and Fleetwood Mac.

According to the Official Charts Company – to mark the National Album Day celebrations – the combined sales (physical, downloads and streams) of Sgt. Pepper are 5.34 million.
So now you know
