Default Best Albums Pre-60

You all know the drill, I decided to do pre-59 because looking through lists (well more the lack of lists...) I've decided coming up with 100 would be very hard. So yeah, everything pre-59 lets aim for 100 but if we fall short oh well.

Almanac Singers "Songs for John Doe"
Billie Holiday "Lady Day"
Billie Holiday "Lady in Satin"
Billie Holiday "Lady Sings the Blues"
Billie Holiday "Songs for Distingué Lovers"
Hank Williams "Moanin' The Blues"
Johnny Cash "Johnny Cash With His Hot and Blue Guitar!"
Johnny Cash "The Fabulous Johnny Cash"
John Lee Hooker "I'm John Lee Hooker"
Miles Davis "Kind of Blue"
Ornette Coleman "The Shape of Jazz To Come"
Pete Seeger "The Goofing-Off Suite"
Pete Seeger "American Industrial Ballads"
The Weavers "The Weavers At Carnegie Hall"
Woody Guthrie "Dust Bowl Ballads"

...I don't even have one album that predates 1963 on my computer right now... I'll come back when I find what was in my old music collection.

Okay after much previewing, researching and so on I've extended the list quite a bit. I imagine some of it will go, I didn't like alot of the early rock and roll stuff however some of the other stuff was nice particularly Thelonious Monk and Charles Mingus.

Soul is mostly 60's.
Early R&B is what you want to look for.

You missed Nat King Cole and Ray Charles!
Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson and Muddy Waters should be included too.

João Gilberto "Chega de Saudade" [1st bossa nova album, great stuff]
Bernard Herrmann "Vertigo" [a MASTERFUL score]
Sun Ra "Jazz in Silhouette"
Frank Sinatra "A Swingin' Affair!" [16 great songs; i'm not complaining]
Moondog "Moondog" [important avant garde work]
Julie London "Julie Is Her Name" [at least a dozen great songs; and the superb "cry me a river"]
Frank Sinatra "Songs for Young Lovers" [8 great songs; again, why complain]

Yeah about this whole pre-59 thing. Why not just make it pre-60?

Sorry, I should've said pre-60 I meant 59 and back >.> after Comus and I finish with the finishing touches on the 70-74 list I'll get all this on. Igor Stravinsky came out with some stuff he'll go on also.

Yes, those two are good. I love Thelonious Monk.

I'll probably post my list when I have the net again... I'm using the computers on campus right now.
