Congrats on the pin :clap3: 

 

FYI I may update my "classic albums I need to check out" playlist on Spotify to just mirror this list (with the first song on each album I just go straight to the album to check it out). I can post here if I end up doing that!

Thanks! And yeah a playlist might be a good idea, although it seems rather daunting for so much music lol

James Thomas Ramey (August 17, 1944 – October 28, 1970), better known as Baby Huey, was an American rock and soul singer. He was the frontman for the band Baby Huey & the Babysitters, whose sole LP for Curtom Records in 1971 was influential in the development of hip hop music.

Known for its funkiness, África Brasil is one of Ben's best-known recordings.[3] Rolling Stone Brazil listed it as one of the 100 best Brazilian albums in history,[4] and it was included in both Robert Dimery's 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die as well as Tom Moon's collection 1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die.

All encompassing! Suggestions for all genres would be great. Though if there is a genre you know better than others you can just focus on that one in particular.

Finally finished adding the genres to all of the albums in the OP (courtesy of Wikipedia :flower:). Hopefully that makes it easier for people to find albums they might like! Also, @Wicked I'm still waiting on those '00s and '10s lists :matty:

I was thinking of choosing What's the 411 initially but I saw My Life more on the lists I checked out  (IIRC)

I forgot about this :skull: I'll try to post it soon.

 

Wondering what the stance on compilations is here. That would probably aid when it comes to other genres or artists that released music before making albums was really a thing.

If you mean compilations like Madonna's Immaculate Collection I'm cool with that! There's a few live albums listed so I'm pretty fast and loose with what can be addded.
