Thomas E. Davis said Lots of great music, but many egregious omissions. How could "1001 Albums" not include such seminal blues artists as Charley Patton, Bessie Smith, Son House, and Robert Johnson? How could it miss jazz greats like Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Louis Jordan, and Wayne Shorter? Can we live without folk and country legends Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie, and Hank Williams? Reggae greats Lee "Scratch" Perry and Toots and the Mayals? Rock 'n' roll founders Chuck B. Great book for any music lover! Awesome book that is full of fun facts and great albums. Since reading this book, I have found so much new "old" music to listen to. It's fun to pick up and read it in little bites, or read from start to finish. I have started listening to the albums all the way through hitting on each decade. Most of the music can be found on Spotify so that makes life easier. I would definitely recommend it to any music. hawklord said Smells like payola. Lot's and Lot's of crap entries.
