Top 100 Music Albums of the 1960s by dihansse (2019)

« View previous chartView next chart »

I haven't experienced the sixties' music live but it certainly has formed my musical taste with of course especially the Beatles, one of the only bands in the decade which was not merely a singles band but also an album band.
This list would be much shorter if I would restrict myself to one album per artist because to me the Beatles really defined this decade but also the Stones, The Doors, The Kinks, CCR and some others have more than one album in this list.
