Top Pop Albums 1955-2009
The 7th edition of our Albums book returns to the well-known title of 5 of its previous editions: Top Pop Albums. (The 6th edition of this book was known as The Billboard Albums.) And, it sports a revamping of its former crisp, clean layout of artists, album titles and chart data!
The First Edition To Include:
Don't forget to order The Tracks of Top Pop Albums CD-ROM which includes the listings of all of an artist's album and CD tracks -- as these are not included in the book Top Pop Albums 1955-2009.
"The Billboard 200" chart is one of the best indicators of the moment's best-loved music. Over the past 55 years, the albums chart has shown, week in and week out, which albums and CDs are the most purchased in America. It is clearly the chart that never fails to host a wide variety of music genres.
New! Addition of albums that made the "Bubbling Under The Top Pop Albums" chart but not the "Top Pop Albums" chart, from December 1970-August 1985. Now shown chronologically within the artist section are these 1,373 albums which include the debut albums by the Doobie Brothers, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Styx, plus the seminal albums by punk artists Dead Kennedys and Richard Hell & The Voidoids, early New Age and World Music albums, and an eclectic mix of artists like Mom's Apple Pie, Yellowman, the Knittters, Don Imus and Yma Sumac!
New! From 1955-65, over 700 albums integral to popular music history did not make the albums chart. These highly collectable albums now appear within the book's artist section with their year of release. You'll have an even broader perspective of the rock, teen pop, doo-wop and R&B albums of the rock 'n' roll era by artists such as Chuck Berry, Johnny Burnette, The Clovers, Dion & The Belmonts, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, Jan & Dean, Clyde McPhatter, Roy Orbision, The Platters, Del Shannon, Mary Wells, and more!
