Last week I picked up the Rolling Stone special collectors issue "500 Greatest Albums of All Time"
There's brief explanations that make for some good reading as to why certain albums made the cut.
After the two track- you can scroll down and see the TOP 20 albums of all time according to the RS panel.
Two artists that made it in the top 30 were Van Morrison and Patti Smith.
The band that wrote "Gloria,"Them" included Van Morrison before his solo career. Smith does a famous cover of the song.
Them (with Van Morrison)
Here are the top 20. This list was also made in 2003. The new issue out is a revision. Wonder what changed....
