Criteria: These albums were chosen from the years 1960-1990. They intend to reflect those artists from Rock, Folk, & Pop and their sub-genre's. The only consideration was the uniform excellence of the material free from "filler" & representative of the era that it was taken from.

(This list does not include 'Live', Greatest Hits, or 'Best' Of compilations.)
