Acclaimed Music Top 20 Albums of 1964

The Last Lunch

This is a kind of "history of music" project, based on aggregated charts found on Acclaimed Music. It features Top 20 playlists for decades 1920s, 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, and yearly Top 20 playlists (both songs and albums) for each year from 1960 to 2010. It should be a weekly project (though I'm not very consistent with weekly projects). To keep track of it, I made the Acclaimed History of Music page.

Do you prefer Beatles or Rolling Stones? I hope the latter. In this 1964 playlist you'll find two albums by Rolling Stones and - as usual - zero by The Beatles (A Hard Day's Night and Beatles For Sale are in the chart, but they're not on Spotify). Same sad destiny for a couple of Bob Dylan records and for Albert Ayler's Spiritual Unity. Nevertheless, the offer is good. With the Stones, the Beach Boys, some early pop/soul (the Ronettes and the Supremes), some late rock'n'roll (Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry) and the habitual bunch of masters of jazz (Eric Dolphy - who died few months after Out To Lunch! release - Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Charles Mingus, John Coltrane, the magic trio Stan Getz/João Gilberto/Antonio Carlos Jobim). Enjoy!
