Q's 50 Years of Great British Music (2008)

Info: In March 2008, British monthly magazine Q celebrated the first 50 years of rock'n'roll in the UK with a special collector's issue that included lists of ten albums and ten tracks for each decade. Any decade includes just one track/album for artist (for example, Beatles published only in the 1960s and Sgt.Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is their album of choice).
