I feel that the music of the 50s was more an era of the Single and EP because it was the era and birth of Rock n' Roll. LP was more for classical music and jazz. Not that no Jazz or Classical music was good at this time, it is just that the 1950s won't be remembered as such. Because of this I have quite a few artists that I don't know that well, but love their singles. I have also included a few classical recordings of the end of great classical musicians (or at least seen as such).

I would say 80% of this list are albums that I consider to be great. The others I would have to say have a lot of filler on them. Hollywood Flames vs. Little Richard for example. This is Little Richard is a great album, whereas Buzz Buzz Buzz, has quite a bit of filler if you ask me.
