The Trivia Quiz Returns!!!

.....in a slightly different form. This time around, I'm going to list 15 debut albums. Can you tell me who the artists are without Googling? I deliberately strayed outside my own taste in music to give a wider range of you a shot at it. Here we go-




  1. Cold Spring Harbor (Billy Joel)

  2. Freak Out! (Zappa/Mothers of Invention)

  3. Empty Sky (Elton John)

  4. Truth (Jeff Beck Group)

  5. White Music (XTC)

  6. On Through the Night (Def Leppard)

  7. Los Angeles (X)

  8. Murmur (R.E.M.)

  9. For You (Prince)

  10. Children of the Future (Steve Miller Band)

  11. Ring Ring (ABBA)

  12. Tales of Mystery & Imagination (Alan Parsons Project)

  13. Pretties For You (Alice Cooper)

  14. This Was (Jethro Tull)

  15. Writer (Carole King)


Do you have any idea how difficult it is to find 15 debut albums that weren't just titled with the band or artist's name? Yeesh.

Zam! Annie has 9 right out of the gate, including several that I hadn't known.

Paula - One of the remaining ones is someone you like.

I will sit and wait with miz uv for the clues. Not a clue about any of them.

1. Cold Spring Harbor - Billy Joel (and it's not that good, so I'm glad he got a second chance.)
15. Writer _ Carole King - I went backward to find that one after I loved "Tapestry" so much. "Writer" is pretty good, too, and it contains her own recording of "Up On The Roof."
And I knew most of the ones annie got, except that Los Angeles was X's debut.

9. For You - Prince

Surprised nat didn't get that one.

I flunked this one. I only knew Frank Zappa, REM, and Prince...

Oh no, hang on! From my old metal-days, I think I recall that 'On Through the Night' is by Def Leppard. A pre-Pyromania album that not many people bought...

Jefe said...

Man, am I late to the party.

Pretties for You is Alice Cooper.

I own On Through the Night. Had "Bringing on the Heartbreak" on it, which I still dig.

Joe the Troll said...

Yeah, Jefe, I figured you'd be the one to get the Def Leppard. Cheezy puled an upset! Miz UV still hasn't goten the one I picked for her. :-) You got the Cooper, though.

My wife knew #11! ABBA!

She got it! (Knowing that, however, is technically grounds for divorce!) :-)
