    I guess we can safely say that Dylan and The Beatles dominated the '60s. Freewheelin' produced and recorded by John Hammond, Sr. is still one of my favorite and best sounding Dylan releases. The MOFI is a great reissue.

    If only they would let someone have a go at the original Beatles MASTER TAPES and reissue them in glorious ANALOG! Just once please! Is that asking too much!?!?

      Could someone put that in the form of a motion?
      I will happily second. :-)

    This is great, thanks Johnny for both the 50's and 60's.
    Any chance you have 70/80/90/00?
    I wonder which decade it would be in which I recognize absolutely nothing.

      I was going to do that after I finish with the yearly listing of the 70's, but I can do it now if people wish.

      I thought everything got digitized along the way.

        After the Mono and Stereo CD boxset releases in 2009 they did a Stereo Vinyl Boxset in 2012, which was digitized. So you're partly right.

          Hi Johnny, thanks for the lists. Do you have reference for the information? I was curious since I was 5 in 1950 and 25 in 1970. I can see the Beatles taking over the charts in the 60's, but not Miles and Coltrane before that. I checked on Wiki and they show a completely different list from Billboard - soundtracks like West Side Story and My Fair Lady were very prominent. Thanks, Larry

            Hmm...perhaps, labels would be willing to release movie soundtracks for analog tape duplication?
            Sooo much great music, there!
            Vbr,

              Out of all of the lists I've looked at through the years I've found BestEverAlbums to be the one I constantly turn to. They use an aggregate score culled from many greatest hits charts to arrive at their choices. I also like their layout, the fast page loads and supplemental info on both artists and titles.

                  Would you you say that Dylan's being on the list is even more impressive since he wasn't necessarily appealing to the mainstream?

                    yes it was, especially at first when he was mostly acoustic. By the time he went electric, it was a more mainstream appeal, but not as pop as the Beatles of course.
