A Listmania! list by D. A. Kuntze "d1k@netzero.net" (Dallas,Tejas!)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "For a teenager in the late 70's thru early 80's, The Rock Landscape began a hard (no pun.) shift to the screeching Metal form (Speed Metal we called it in 82). It was less musical, a bit dissapointing, so I sought out get the best SOUNDING rock albums. Here is some Rock Solid (no pun..) less played albums you should (or might already) have by the Groups you recognize."
