Going up in our lists with another fine selection of records this week. We ran into some of them already, like The Magnolia Electric Co and Tea for the Tillerman, which are shared by DOK and RKH. The lists of GvZ and RKH to the contrary barely have anything in common to this point, best illustrated by their number of albums from  the sixties: 13 versus… 1 (The Velvet Underground & Nico).

DOK:

31. The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)
32. Radiohead – OK Computer (1997)
33. Jethro Tull – Thick As A Brick (1972)
34. Creedence Clearwater Revival – Cosmo’s Factory (1970)
35. Cat Stevens – Tea for the Tillerman (1970)

GvZ:

31. (26)  The Byrds – The Notorious Byrd Brothers (1968)
32. (41)  Van Morrison – Astral Weeks (1968)
33. (31)  The Band – Music from Big Pink (1968)
34. (9)    The Beatles – Rubber Soul (1965)
35. (19)  The Move – Shazam (1970)

RKH:

31. (20)  Prince – Purple Rain (1984)
32. (34)  Santana – Abraxas (1970)
33. (10)  Lee Hazlewood – Cowboy in Sweden (1970)
34. (36)  Song:Ohia – The Magnolia Electric Co (2003)
35. (32)  Pixies – Doolittle (1989)

However, a similarity shows up this week, as both professors present one  of their top ten albums from last year, dropping into the lower regions. The Beatles’ Rubber Soul is one of them, together with DOK’s Sgt. Pepper being the first albums from the Fab Four. Another remarkable choice: the legendary Thick As A Brick, a personal favorite from the local record magnate. Has the 50 Albums you must hear before you buy a house recently become a victim of a powerful lobby?
