As with everything else on the 'news' today, I clicked on the link with some hesitation and little expectation other than to be pissed off or in some way upset.

And yes, some of the Billboard reviews are really aggravating, some of the choices are dismaying and all that, but who'd a thunk it and what do you know - I have been enjoying going through this list and clicking on the available YouTube links to listen to songs I'd forgotten about, songs I love, songs I'd never heard, and always always choices of songs that are fun to bash.

Again, another list of women artists yet herein awaits a rare treasure, all the reviewers are women. I doubt I need to say much more.

Thanks Andy and John.

Two more lists here - some unpredictable inclusions and pleasingly avoiding the usual practice of numbering the records from No.1 down to what would have been No.50 -

"The alternative Top 50 LPs of the 1960s"
https://thevinylfactory.com/features/al ... 0-records/

"The 50 Most Collectable Records of the 1950s"

Ooooh.... My aching wallet. Some seriously desirable looking items there. Oh, I have to go and have a lie down.

Yes, interesting, and non-obvious list, with some favourites, and plenty I've never heard. Pleased to have been introduced to Basil Kirchin, who I'd heard of only by name, enjoying listening to Abstractions of the Industrial North on youtube (the disc incidentally is oop, and commands high prices)
