Top 100 Music Albums of 1960 by Moondance

In 1960, I was only 4 years old. We would have had a radio in the house and it was set to 2UE, which started playing a top 40 format from 1958 onwards. Looking back at the top 40 for 1960, the songs that I recall are : My Old Man's A Dustman; It's Now Or Never; North To Alaska & She's My Baby.
Looking at the albums and my personal top 100 for 1960, there is nothing that stirs my musical soul - I (obviously) discovered all of this music later in life as I explored musical genres of interest (folk, blues).
Of all the 63 years between 1960 - 2022, I would rate 1960 as my least favourite with a ranking of #63 of 63.
