In all seriousness.if we are to have such a list,there needs to be some more seriousness of thought to go into it.(I have not seen previous lists,so for now,I will stick to the post 1950-stuff.) Motown should definitely be included,but we ought to start with more historically important records,like "Got a Job","Money",or "What's Goin' On".and what about Stax/Volt,while we're at it? There is no question American record labels revolutionized classical recordings,in the decade following WWII.From the Lp,to stereo,and whatever else you want to name.So the most obvious choices here,would be the 1954 "Living Stereo" "Gaite' ",and "Zarathustra",and of course the MG50000 "Pictures",the record that made a classical music lover out of me.Second tier choices,would be the famed Binaural Heifitz Bach,and whatever recording Coulmbia first made,exclusively for the new Lp format.(ML 4001 was first issued on 78 was it not ?)Enough time has passed,that the contributions
punk,and rap have made,and the impact they have had,need to be recognized. Obvious choices,are "RAMONES",or "Blitzkrieg Bop" (1976) ,and "Super Rappin' "(Grandmaster Flash and The Furious Five 1979.)Just my first two cents here,Roger

All these records, and STILL no "Since Willy Got a Whippet!"
