Here's a sneak peak at a project I'll probably never return to finish. The June 10th, 1994 issue of Goldmine contained a piece I wrote about "The 200 Definitive Albums Of The 1970s." It was well-received, sparked much discussion and dissension, and was a lot of fun to write. I toyed with the idea of expanding and adapting it into a book, which I would have called Rock And Roll All Nite! The 500 Definitive Rock 'n' Soul Albums Of The 1970s. I got as far as compiling this partial list of 437 choices, and then abandoned it.
If I were to pursue this--probably as a blog piece rather than a book--I'd likely trim it to 300 LPs, and eliminate much (not all) of the repetition among individual artists. Whaddaya think? Additions? Subtractions? Willful cutting of losses? Expansion to 1000 definitive LPs? Er--that last option's off the table, actually. But if you have opinions, I have ears. Have a nice day!
