The Vinyl Issue: Double Albums
Quadrophenia, The Wall, Generation Terrorists and the other albums that only two discs can truly do justice to.
Sometimes one disc isn't enough to contain all the music and ideas a band have. Which is where the double album comes in...
Blonde On Blonde (COLUMBIA, 1966)
Rock’s first studio double, and still a masterpiece of sequencing, with each flip feeling like a fresh start and Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands sprawled across the entire fourth side. A half-century later, Blonde On Blonde remains inextricably bound to vinyl’s uncontested golden-age. To own it on CD feels plain wrong; to download it from iTunes should be a hanging offence.
