Abstract:

"An unprecedented book, The Top 100 Canadian Albums includes the finest albums in Canadian music history chosen by a blue-ribbon panel. More than 500 singers, songwriters, musicians, producers, columnists, and collectors cast their votes for this first-time-ever poll. Rush's Neil Peart, Ron Sexsmith, Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies, Holly Cole, Sass Jordan, Ryan Peake of Nickelback, Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea, George Pettit of Alexisonfire, Saturday Night Blues host Holger Peterson, and The Vinyl Cafe's Stuart McLean are just a few of the people who voted for their favourite albums. The results span every decade and every, genre of music, from the fifties until the first decade of the 21st century, from classical to pop, from heavy metal to hip-hop." "Between the covers, you'll find the results, from 1 to 100. Along the way, you'll discover behind-the-scenes stories about the making of the albums and the history of Canadian music, as told by the musicians themselves. Find out how Gordon Lightfoot helped get Blue Rodeo back to Canada. Learn about the song that connects The Guess Who to The Tragically Hip. Meet Simply Saucer, the band that waited 30 years for its album to become a hit. Connect the dots between Don Messer and Music from Big Pink."--Jacket.
