Top 100 Music Albums of the 1960s by meccalecca (2020)
Some clean-cut kids boys wrote some songs about love. Then they took a load of drugs. The 60s are a fascinating period. Soul was at its peak. Jazz saw some of its greatest releases. Rock exploded. Lyrical songwriting became more meaningful. And drugs took music to very strange new places.

It seems we have a pretty similar view on the 60`s.
Scott Walker's 2 is also a favorite of mine.
I really enjoyed your chart. You Picked Os Mutantes , Finally someone who likes this brazillian band
Well, I grew up on 60s rock, so it's far more cemented into my persona. I don't feel soul was at it's strongest in album form. I love Sam Cooke, Otis, James Brown, and all 3 are included here, but as strong as they were, their albums could be pretty hit and miss. Otis' albums were often loaded with covers that failed to showcase his voice. I could probably use a Marvin Gaye record here though, but i prefer his 70s output.
I recall a 2003 'From The Vaults' comp but you are right. =P - But yeah there is a lot of rock canon overpowering soul and pop cuts though.
@Gowienczyk Pffft. Ronettes are at #24. And unless I'm mistaken, Goldie & The Gingerbreads never released a proper album. singles only. But I do also have Supremes, Shangri-Las, Martha & The Vandellas and The Crystals. How much more do you need? Shirelles were very close but didn't make the cut.
No Ronettes? Goldie & The Gingerbreads? Pffft love for girl groups my butt. =P
