Another Hit for Whitburn,
This review is from: Billboard Top 10 Album Charts - 1963-1998 (Paperback)
If you are interested in the Billboard charts, then the only person to turn to is Joel Whitburn. Mr. Whitburn has released many collections pertaining to the Top Singles Charts, but the Top Album Charts have suprisingly gotten the short shrift. That ends with the release of this book. You get every top ten chart from 1963 to 1998 and it makes for fascinating reader for any chart fan. The 60's are the most interesting decade to review because of the incredible diversity of the albums listed. On any given week, the top ten could contain such strange bedfellows as The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, a Broadway Cast Album, Herb Alpert, The Supremes and so on. As the years wear on, the diversity wanes, but it is still a great read. The Billboard Top Ten Album Charts is a must have for your chart collection.

An informative review, Thomas. You're probably right about the diminished diversity in the top 10 albums charts, which is a curious contrast to the increasing diversity in popular music in this same span of time.
