Albums with Great Opening and Closing Tracks

I thought this would be a fun thread. Which albums do you think start with a classic song and have another classic to finish the album?

A few albums that readily spring to my mind with a pair of especially memorable bookend tracks:

Machine Head - Deep Purple
(Opener: Highway Star, Closer: Space Truckin')

Highway 61 Revisited - Bob Dylan
(Opener: Like A Rolling Stone, Closer: Desolation Row)

IV - Led Zeppelin
(Opener: Black Dog, Closer: When The Levee Breaks)

Meddle - Pink Floyd
(Opener: One Of These Days, Closer: Echoes)

Who's Next - The Who
(Opener: Baba O'Riley, Closer: Won't Get Fooled Again)

Free - Fire and Water.

Starts with the title track, and closes with the long version of All Right Now. Everything in between is just as good too.
