    I have three of the little hardback books in this series - the 60s, the 70s and the 80s. I would say the 60s book is the best of them (because it contains a higher percentage of albums that float my personal boat than the other two do), but this one review is for them all. You're basically on a hiding to nothing with books like these. Great in some ways, not so great in others. No room for much detail. Just a cover photo, a track listing and a few factoids comprising a couple of paragraphs. If an I have three of the little hardback books in this series - the 60s, the 70s and the 80s.

You're basically on a hiding to nothing with books like these. Great in some ways, not so great in others. No room for much detail. Just a cover photo, a track listing and a few factoids comprising a couple of paragraphs. If an album is by somebody you really like, you will already know everything their page is telling you and a whole lot more. And of course, because this is the best-SELLING albums, GLOBALLY, as opposed to simply the best [in somebody's opinion,] it's full of dreadful albums you wouldn't dream of giving houseroom to, including an awful lot of inoffensive, bland, middle of the road soft rock albums by American bands a lot of us Brits have barely even heard of. Nothing makes me angrier than seeing about 80% of my all-time favourite albums not even getting a mention in books like these, but hey, worse things happen at sea. You can defend these books on the basis that it's interesting to see what kind of here-today-gone-tomorrow rubbish the world was buying when all those great albums we have learned to appreciate now were being studiously ignored.

    A short but mostly informative bathroom reader for anyone into 60s music. Every album listing features a good-sized cover photo and a single page of basic information about the record that includes a descriptive blurb plus data on total sales in the US, a list of the musicians who played on it, and so forth. If you're already a music fan possessing fair-to-moderate familiarity with this era, you won't be surprised by anything here. Well, maybe the sales numbers will come as a shock.

I was surprised at some of this data, especially the White Album moving so many more copies than Abbey Road. Still, it's a breezy read that is well worth buying if you can score a cheap copy (got mine from a Goodwill-type local store for a buck).

    Short, informative, nothing spectacular since I knew most of the info but I only bought for a future novel project I'm thinking about. The high point for me was seeing just how successful The Beatles really were! :-) Short, informative, nothing spectacular since I knew most of the info but I only bought for a future novel project I'm thinking about.
