The Music Collection 25 Must Have Albums To Start Your Library

I have often been asked what one should have in their record collection. The “must haves” as it were. Below you will see my list. Understand this is only studio albums, not compilations, greatest hits, best of’s, live or box sets. These are just studio releases by the artists/bands themselves. The other point that I am going to state is that these aren’t necessarily my favorite albums by the artist or band. Instead, there are ones I feel that represent them the best or I am most familiar with. Stating that, there is no right or wrong answer, just an opinion. I believe having these records in your collection will make you well rounded and able to have a good core with which to branch off. They are in alphabetical order, not by what I think is the best order. This was painstaking for me to put together, there are so many that deserve to be here. But I finally broke down and did it and will stick with this list. I look forward to the discussion this will cause. Here they are:

1: AC/DC Back In Black
2: Aerosmith Toys In The Attic

4: The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band
5: Black Sabbath Paranoid
