    S.D.

    The non-Classical long-player had a good commercial run, and The MOJO Collection, compiled by writers for the UK-published MOJO Magazine, chronologically assembles more than 1,700 definitive LP titles from the format’s history. Using brief but informative essays to highlight each album’s artistic, commercial, cultural, and stylistic merits (or sometimes demerits!), the authors trace the popular LP’s rise (1950s), dominance (1960s-70s), decline (1980s), fall (1990s), and retro revival (2000s).

Added to many familiar, if not popular, titles are a considered handful of obscurities, and some curious clunkers. Minus points for some inexcusable typos and editorial missteps, but otherwise one of the more “objective” entries in the “Best Of” tradition.

    I'm going to mark this book as "read" as it's been sitting on this list for so long. In reality I'm embarked on a long project of collecting/listening to every album, starting with the jazz. So far everything I've listened to from this book's recommendations has been great, without exception. If you find yourself jaded with the music pushed at you by the music press and media in general give it a try, there's plenty here to make you smile!

    This is the kind of reference book that you could read forever, and at the rate I read, it may be forever... It's a very cool anthology of Mojo Magazine's choices for the greatest albums ever since the late 50s. Amazing music.

    For the most part some great music. So much was left out of some decades and some very fine artists were not mentioned in most genres. Definitely a great rock reference guide. with a little jazz an blues thrown in.

    If I could give it 6stars I would. Brilliant reference collection even if I don't agree with all of them.
