Well. Except for Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Boyz II Men it looks a total bust to me.

I think you might be kidding about those choices (maybe?) but do you really not like Abbey Road, Sgt. Pepper's and the White Album? Besides those I found a few that I like; six to be exact.

I got to 14. Aside from the Beatles ones there were some Zep and Pink Floyd. Can't say any if the later ones I'd claim to like. The sort of stuff that sells mega albums nowadays isn't the modern stuff I'm listening to or interested in.

It looks like the Beatles are the only ones who get 60s released on the list. It'd be interesting if someone did an analysis of the sales adjusted for the real value of the LP at the time of release.

I heard these words before!  I got my first library card when I was seven.  It was laminated too, but the lamination in those days was very brittle.  I cracked the lamination the first day I got it because I put the card in my back pocket and sat on it.  The next time I used the card at the library, the librarian said "If you can't take care of your library card properly, I'm going to revoke it."  She asked me for my card so she could have a new one made for me.  I told her my mother was waiting for me in the car and I would let her do it the next time I was in.

The same scene replayed every time I went to that library until I was twenty-five and moved to NYC.  That librarian never gave up!


I never heard of a lot of those groups.  Wasn't the Backstreet Boys the group that once sang with Dusty Springfield?

I never listened to a complete song sung by Celine Dion.  Her voice gave me a headache.

Yeah, it's so fancy I had to look it up. Then I had a good laugh.

I know how you were Barry; a real scofflaw! I dealt with your type all the time when I worked in circulation at the other library.  ;) Really, though, the condition of the people's cards never bothered me. There were more pressing issues to deal with like the time I found a bloody DVD security case in the stacks. Someone cut themselves pretty good stealing that movie.

I think I still have that cracked library card, Kelley.  I'll check the next time I go out to Long Island.


And what's with these groups that have backward letters in their names?  Their album covers look like eye charts.

I'm amazed Shania Twain has so many huge selling albums. Nothing particularly against her. But she has a 20 million selling album plus two others more than 10 million?? Yikes.

Because a BIG chunk of this land loves Country Music.  And she looks good in her underwear.

I wouldn't mind seeing that piece of history, Barry!

They're an exception.  I'm surprised ABBA wasn't listed there.
