If he got the gig he wanted to bring me on as his manager...my life wold have sure been different...don't know if it would have been preferable in the long run (none of them did any drugs - other than ginseng - at the time.

Wheels of Fire is the third album by the British rock band Cream, released in 1968 as a double LP, with one disc recorded in the studio and the other recorded live. It was the world's first double album to be certified Platinum.

It was also released as two single LPs, Wheels of Fire (In the Studio) and Wheels of Fire (Live at the Fillmore). Extra performances not included on Wheels of Fire ended up on Live Cream.

The band's drummer Ginger Baker co-wrote three songs for the album with pianist Mike Taylor. Bassist Jack Bruce co-wrote four songs with poet Pete Brown. Guitarist Eric Clapton contributed to the album by choosing two cover songs.

Rolling Stone: "Wheels of Fire not only has the definitive Cream tune – "White Room" – but it is also incontrovertible proof of Eric Clapton's interpretive mastery. "Crossroads," a live reworking of Robert Johnson's haunted blues classic, features one of the most blazing guitar solos ever recorded."

It is number 205 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
50th anniversary of this album.

Dirty Mind is the third studio album by American recording artist Prince, released in 1980.

Dirty Mind was recorded primarily in Prince's home studio throughout 1980, with several of the songs being cut within one night and thus having a sparse, demo-like quality. The opening title track was released as a single, and described as "robotic funk". "When You Were Mine", notably covered by Cyndi Lauper, is "pure new wave pop" about a woman who has left Prince and his realization of his love for her only afterwards.

Ken Tucker from Rolling Stone magazine wrote, "Prince's first two collections established him as a doe-eyed romantic. Nothing could have prepared us for the liberating lewdness of Dirty Mind. Dirty Mind jolts with the unsettling tension that arises from rubbing complex erotic wordplay against clean, simple melodies."

Rolling Stone: A mix of slinky funk, synth-driven rock, jittery pop and sexual innuendo, Dirty Mind is a New Wave R&B masterwork. It includes the world's merriest done-me-wrong song, "When You Were Mine," and the incest ditty "Sister." "I wasn't being deliberately provocative," Prince said. "I was being deliberately me."

The album is number 206 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Abraxas is the second studio album by latin rock band Santana, released in 1970.

Consolidating the interest generated by their first album, Santana, and their highly acclaimed live performance at the Woodstock Festival in August 1969, the band followed-up with Abraxas in September 1970. The album's mix of rock, blues, jazz, salsa and other influences was very well received, showing a musical maturation from their first album and refining the band's early sound. 'Black Magic Woman,' written by Peter Green, helped underpin the truly unique blend of Latin American / Blues / Rock style. "Oye Como Va" was written by Latin jazz and mambo musician Tito Puente in 1963. The first sentence is "Oye como va mi ritmo", meaning "Listen to how my rhythm goes."

The title of the album, which features Mati Klarwein's 1961 painting, Annunciation, on the cover, comes from a line in Hermann Hesse's book, Demian, quoted on the album's back cover: "We stood before it and began to freeze inside from the exertion. We questioned the painting, berated it, made love to it, prayed to it: We called it mother, called it whore and slut, called it our beloved, called it Abraxas...."

Rolling Stone: "Black Magic Woman," the Top Five hit from Abraxas, is definitive Santana: Afro-Latin grooves and piercing lyrical psychedelic blues guitar. It was a cover of a Fleetwood Mac song written by one of Carlos Santana's guitar heroes, Peter Green. The album's other hit was also a cover: Tito Puente's "Oye Como Va."

The album is number 207 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Tea for the Tillerman is the fourth studio album by the singer-songwriter Cat Stevens, released in 1970.

This album, Stevens' second during same year, includes many of his best-known songs including "Where Do the Children Play?", "Hard Headed Woman", "Wild World", "Sad Lisa", "Into White", and "Father and Son".

Stevens, a former art student, created the artwork featured on the record's cover.

Rolling Stone: "Chamber-pop arrangements made this the British folkie's most ambitious album. And his toughest: "Wild World" and "Hard-Headed Woman" find Stevens condemning his ex, Patti D'Arbanville – who later shacked up with Mick Jagger."

The album is number 208 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Ten is the debut studio album by the American rock band Pearl Jam, released in 1991.

Pearl Jam's original name was taken from the professional basketball player Mookie Blaylock. It was changed after the band signed to Epic Records, as record executives were concerned about intellectual property and naming rights following Blaylock's inking of an endorsement deal with Nike. In commemoration of the band's original name, the band titled its first album Ten after Blaylock's jersey number.

In an early promotional interview, Vedder said that the name "Pearl Jam" was a reference to his great-grandmother Pearl, who was married to a Native American and had a special recipe for peyote-laced jam. In a 2006 Rolling Stone cover story however, Vedder admitted that this story was "total bullsh*", even though he indeed had a great-grandma named Pearl. Ament and McCready explained that Ament came up with "pearl", and that the band later settled on "Pearl Jam" after attending a concert by Neil Young, in which he extended his songs as improvisations of 15–20 minutes in length.

The album produced three hit singles: "Alive", "Even Flow", and "Jeremy", and received nominations for Best Rock Song and Best Hard Rock Performance at the 1993 Grammy awards. With over 10 million copies sold, it remains Pearl Jam's most commercially successful album. The album spent a total of 256 weeks on the Billboard charts, making it one of the top 15 charting albums ever.

The album is number 209 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere is the second studio album by the Canadian musician Neil Young, his first with his longtime backing band Crazy Horse, released in 1969.

The album contains four songs that became standards in Young's performance repertoire: "Cinnamon Girl", "Down by the River", the title track, and "Cowgirl in the Sand", all of which were written in a single day while Young had a 103°F fever.

Young's lead vocal track on the song "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" was actually a temporary scratch vocal he sang through the low quality talk-back microphone on the mixing board, with no effects such as reverb. Young liked the stark contrast to the rest of the recording.

Pitchfork rated the album 10 out of 10 points, stating that, "the opening riff to 'Cinnamon Girl' erases the memory of Neil Young completely in about five seconds" and that "Crazy Horse were loose and sloppy, privileging groove and feeling above all. Young sounds comfortable and confident, singing with the versatile voice that has changed remarkably little in the 40 years since".

Rolling Stone: "Young and Crazy Horse had been together for only a couple of months when they cut Nowhere – and the jammy outing sounds that way, in the best sense possible."

The album is number 210 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Wish You Were Here is the ninth studio album by the English progressive rock group Pink Floyd, released in 1975.

Wish You Were Here was recorded in numerous sessions at London's Abbey Road Studios. Some of the songs critique the music business, others express alienation, and "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is a tribute to Syd Barrett, whose mental breakdown had forced him to leave the group seven years earlier.

While recording on 5 June 1975, the band was completing the final mix of "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" when an overweight man with shaven head and eyebrows entered the room. Roger Waters initially did not recognize him. Wright was also mystified by the identity of the visitor, but soon realized that it was Syd Barrett. Mason also failed to recognize him and was "horrified" when Gilmour identified him. In Mason's personal memoir of Pink Floyd, Inside Out, he recalled Barrett's conversation as "not entirely sensible".

Waters was reduced to tears by the sight of his former bandmate. He mentioned that he was ready to avail the band of his services, but while listening to the mix of "Shine On", showed no signs of understanding its relevance to his plight. He joined the guests at Gilmour's wedding reception in the EMI canteen (he had just married his first wife, Ginger), but left without saying goodbye. None of the band members saw him from that day until his death in 2006.

The album became an instant commercial success and record company EMI was unable to print enough copies to satisfy demand. Band members Richard Wright and David Gilmour have each cited Wish You Were Here as their favorite Pink Floyd album, and the album is widely regarded as the group's magnum opus.

It is number 211 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain is the second studio album by US rock band Pavement, released in 1994.

The album saw the band move on towards a more accessible rock sound than that displayed on their more lo-fi debut Slanted and Enchanted and achieve moderate success with the single "Cut Your Hair".

Slanted and Enchanted sounded unlike much of the leading alternative radio staples of the day, but it did reference some of them by name when vocalist Stephen Malkmus playfully dissed Stone Temple Pilots and the Smashing Pumpkins in the closing bars of the country-tinged “Range Life.” Later live versions of the track had the singer substituting "The Spice Girls", "Counting Crows", or others for "Stone Temple Pilots". Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan threatened to drop his band from the 1994 Lollapalooza Festival if Pavement was allowed to play.

Pavement recorded five full-length albums and nine EPs over the course of their decade-long career. Some prominent music critics, such as Robert Christgau and Stephen Thomas Erlewine, went so far as to call them the best band of the 1990s.

Rolling Stone: "Pavement's second album was about love and rock & roll, with bouncy pop, stretches of lyrical noise and "Range Life," which slagged the Smashing Pumpkins while searching for the right way to settle down."

The album is number 212 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
