Best  Albums  Ever

A Listmania! list by bob turnley (birmingham,al,usa)
The list author says: "An album's greatness is mainly dependent on how relative it is to your generation. For this reason Frank Sinatra albums are seldom considered to be great by those born after 1950. I like Dylan,Springsteen,The Beach Boys and Hendrix. But not as much as I like these albums."
