Music from the Motion Picture "Purple Rain"
4.  Music from the Motion Picture "Purple Rain" by Prince

$3.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (339 customer reviews)

Rumours
5.  Rumours by Fleetwood Mac
The list author says:
  "Jealousy, lies, betrayal and drugs fuel one of the most personal and passionate rock albums ever.  9 of the 11 tracks are essential classics of the genre."
$7.99   Used & New from: $0.59
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (690 customer reviews)

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (75 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

American Recordings
8.  American Recordings by Johnny Cash
The list author says:
  "Sincere desperation and subtle shades of fragility render this album a most satisfyingly intimate experience.  This album feels like a private conversation with a man at his lowest and yet, most content.  This album moves me."
$9.00   Used & New from: $1.90
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (125 customer reviews)

Sail Away
9.  Sail Away by Randy Newman
$8.99   Used & New from: $0.24
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

At Folsom Prison
10.  At Folsom Prison by Johnny Cash
The list author says:
  "A man who knows his audience.  The life of the outlaw never sounded so tempting.  Imbued with pure grit, guts, biting humor and a healthy dose of romanticism, playing to a packed house of prisoners, Johnny Cash forcefully carves his reputation as a complete bad azz (Amazon's need to censor, not my own)."
$7.29   Used & New from: $0.46
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (351 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Avalon
11.  Avalon by Roxy Music
The list author says:
  "A truly stupendous and hypnotic album, in any format, borders on the transcendental on SACD when played through a Hi-Fi multi-channel system.  Unfortunately, now out of print, this version's price has grown increasingly outrageous.

But there are ways around this . . ."
Used & New from: $159.99

MTV Unplugged in New York
12.  MTV Unplugged in New York by Nirvana
The list author says:
  "Who needs distortion with a voice like that?  With few men's voices ever sounding as potent and passionate, Kurt Cobain performs the definitive versions of every song on this album in one take.  The last track, Where Did You Sleep Last Night?, will haunt you.  Truly breathtaking."
$6.04   Used & New from: $0.31
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (563 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

69 Love Songs
13.  69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields
The list author says:
  "Like a bag of Ocean Spray Chocolate Covered Craisins, every piece contained in this collection is met with increasing enthusiasm and appetite. Some songs are fully-formed confections of delight, others are the all too bare innards of truth and some are empty candy coatings, too sweet to be true. But every bite is delicious and by the end of the bag, you want more. And you need to brush your teeth."
$29.97   Used & New from: $16.30
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (148 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Forever Changes
14.  Forever Changes by Love
The list author says:
  "I love this album. There is something inescapably pretty about it. The quivering of Arthur Lee's voice, guttural guitar solos, fluttering string sections, ground-pounding rhythm section, simply beautiful.

Buy the two-disc Collector's Edition.  With a properly remastered original album, an arguably superior alternative-mix, and some terrific extras, you will not be disappointed."
$17.39   Used & New from: $3.79
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (320 customer reviews)

Excitable Boy
15.  Excitable Boy by Warren Zevon
The list author says:
  "Heroin addiction, revenge, necrophilia, little old lady mutilating werewolves, martyrdom, revolution, coming-of-age, lawyers, guns and money . . . you couldn't ask for a more diversely entertaining 35 minutes.

If you have a sense of humor and a taste for the bizarre and absurd, you will enjoy this album."
$4.99   Used & New from: $0.77
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (110 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion
