Re: name an album you bought just for one song...

I honestly can't think of one....I have always been picky about buying lp's by bands I like. I used to buy many 45's back in the day though.

Re: name an album you bought just for one song...

My answer depends on whether we are discussing albums bought for one song which otherwise turn out to be disappointing or are by artists the listener would not normally be interested in, or albums bought for one song which have one track which immediately stands out as outstanding but where subsequent listens reveal several other good or great tracks as well. I've never bought an album which I consider to be in the former category - generally I think the likelihood of this has been reduced by digital downloads and streaming services, which have made it much easier to separately buy and listen to an individual song than was previously possible.

On the other hand, I have bought several in the latter category, where I bought the album primarily for one song I loved, but in all cases there are several other tracks on the album I also enjoyed. This list would include:

. Cream - Disraeli Gears - Sunshine Of Your Love

. Deep Purple - Burn - Burn

. Lynyrd Skynyrd - Street Survivors - That Smell

. Tom Petty - Damn The Torpedoes - Refugee

. Rush - Permanent Waves - The Spirit of Radio

I could also include an album like Neil Young's American Stars 'n Bars (which I bought mainly for Like A Hurricane), but as I already owned about 10-11 of his albums by the time I actually acquired it I don't think this should count.

The Isley Brothers 3+3. I bought it for "(Who's) That Lady?", but the rest of the album is excellent, too.
