VH1's 100 Greatest Albums television series sparked much debate about the accuracy of its list, but it was a great guide for any serious or casual music fan as to which albums should be staples in any record collection. As a book, the 100 Greatest Albums will be the perfect reference for building a substantive and thorough collection, as well as just being an entertaining read about some of the most important works ever created in music history. The book follows the order of the list, starting at 100 and working towards number one. Each album is discussed thoroughly across a two-page spread and each spread will include; an image of the album cover, the year of release, the record label, production and engineering credits, band members and instruments played, appropriate quote or quotes about the album from other artists, an essay that gives context to the album by examining its historical significance and detailing what makes the album unique by diving into the songs.

The music of the 1960s captured the essence of a decade that saw many great social, economic and political convulsions. The Beach Boys sang of pretty girls and fast cars; Bob Dylan spoke of poverty, pain and corruption; and Pink Floyd discovered their own surrealistic world. This book is a fact-filled guide to the 100 best albums made during the most creative period in 20th-century music. The albums reflect the various musical styles of the period: including rhythm and blues, soul folk, heavy rock, psychedelic and protest. The origins of these styles and the circumstances that pushed each artist in their own particular direction are pinpointed, as is their influence on rock music from the 1960s until now.

It started in 1965 with albums that quickly developed 'classic' status and, despite the passing of subsequent decades, have lost none of their enduring charm. Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited and Rubber Soul by the Beatles did much to ensure that albums would become more important than the hitherto champion of music, the 45. 50 years later albums continue to maintain a special affection with music lovers across the globe. We all love them. There may be disagreements regarding what constitutes greatness and that's part of the fun. That's also the main purpose behind writing this book. The aim, quite simply, is to share a passionate love for the 'album' in its many guises from vinyl, cassette, CD and through to the recent developments of MP3 and online streaming. The intention of the pages you are about to read is not to patronise, not to lecture, but to spotlight and discuss in an unpretentious manner the key classics that have brought a sense of tremendous satisfaction to me... and, I hope, will do the same for those unfamiliar with the albums mentioned.

100 Great Black Britons

With a foreword by David Olusoga Patrick Vernon's landmark 100 Great Black Britons campaign of 2003 was one of the most successful movements to focus on the role of people of African and Caribbean descent in British history. Frustrated by the widespread and continuing exclusion of the black British community from the mainstream popular conception of 'Britishness', despite black people having lived in Britain for over a thousand years, Vernon set up a public poll in which anyone could vote for the black Briton they most admired. The response to this campaign was incredible. As a result, a number of black historical figures were included on the national school curriculum and had statues and memorials erected and blue plaques put up in their honour. Mary Seacole was adopted by the Royal College of Nursing and was given the same status as Florence Nightingale. Children and young people were finally being encouraged to feel pride in their history and a sense of belonging in Britain. Now, with this book, Vernon and Osborne have relaunched the campaign with an updated list of names and accompanying portraits - including new role models and previously little-known historical figures. Each entry explores in depth the individual's contribution to British history - a contribution that too often has been either overlooked or dismissed. In the wake of the 2018 Windrush scandal, and against the backdrop of Brexit, the rise of right-wing populism and the continuing inequality faced by black communities across the UK, the need for this campaign is greater than ever.

Writing The 100 Greatest Rock'n'Roll Songs Ever was a labor of love. Written while on Sabbatical leave from my day job, it is one listener's snapshot of the genre, from the mid-'50's to the present, filtered through my personal life experiences. My purpose for writing this book was to acknowledge the major role that the music has played in my life. My wish for the reader is to stimulate memories of your own favorite songs and of the rock'n'roll vernacular and experiences shared by many of us.

Radiohead And The Resistant Concept Album

How the British rock band Radiohead subverts the idea of the concept album in order to articulate themes of alienation and anti-capitalism is the focus of Marianne Tatom Letts's analysis of Kid A and Amnesiac. These experimental albums marked a departure from the band's standard guitar-driven base layered with complex production effects. Considering the albums in the context of the band's earlier releases, Letts explores the motivations behind this change. She places the two albums within the concept-album/progressive-rock tradition and shows how both resist that tradition. Unlike most critics of Radiohead, who focus on the band's lyrics, videos, sociological importance, or audience reception, Letts focuses on the music itself. She investigates Radiohead's ambivalence toward its own success, as manifested in the vanishing subject of Kid A on these two albums.

Which Blondie Top Five was originally a flop for a West Coast power pop band? Who wrote Alice Cooper's 1973 hit 'Hello Hurray', and which folk singer first recorded it?

The Rock Canon

The canon is usually considered to be an inherently elitist concept. However, Carys Wyn Jones here explores the symptomatic reflections of canonical values, terms and mechanisms from the canons of literature and classical music in the reception of rock music. She concludes that in the popular reception of rock music we are not only trying to organize the past, but also mediate the present, and any canon of rock music must now negotiate a far more pluralized culture, and possibly accept a greater degree of change than has been evident in the canons of literature and classical music in the last two centuries.
