This is the title of a book I found in a bargain bin today. I paid $4 but you can find most of it here:
http://www.1000recordings.com/

I found myself first reading up on the recordings in the book that I already have, learning a lot of new stuff about them. Then the nice thing is that in each article it also mentions related music on similar and tangential planes, making me curious about other recordings.

I think it is a great tool that will help focus my future music explorations and purchases. It covers all music genres.

Yeah, I borrowed that from the library about a year ago. It had about 120 suggestions in the the classical category which were interesting to read, although I understandably had different choices for most of the compositions which were covered.

Ha, Nilsson Schmilsson. smile

Dust, Screaming Trees: Never heard of it, but in my younger years I would have bought this one just for the cover art. There are some things about albums I really miss.

Johm Barleycorn Must die. Great album, bought that one for the title.

No Gentle Giant though. They were THE musicians musicians of the time. Surprising.

You could go your whole life without listening to Kiss and not miss a thing. I thought they were IT for a couple of years .... of course, I was twelve at the time and had not yet listened to Led Zeppelin.

I've never listed to Kiss. I don't feel like I've missed anything.

This list might be the only time that you see Sinatra and Slayer as recommended material in practically the same breath. crazy
