    I hoped it would give a more robust life to the lists everyone sent in. I had a tough time too. Really wanted more Beatles on my list, but although true to me. It would have been a boring list that we have all seen before. Everyone's lists are great

    Yes, it's a boot and it's a good one. Decent sound quality too. A YouTube search will find the full album. Enjoy!

    The Monkees is a brave pick if you listen to most critics. They were my introduction into the world of music as kid watching Saturday morning cartoons. Should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Two of them actually played their instruments. Dolenz had(still does) a great voice. Anyone who listens to "Goin Down" would know that. They helped break Hendrix in the U.S. They out sold the Beatles and the Stones combined in 1967. Come on!!!!!

    even though Capitol butchered the Beatles albums. I also had a liking for the U.S. Rubber Soul. It seemed more acoustic more organic. Some of your picks would be on the second 20 list . Nice list
