Acclaimed Music Top 20 Albums of 1965

Otis Blue

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.

This time, our kind DeLorean drives us back to 1965, and to a formidable mixture of soul (Otis Redding), jazz (John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter), rock (The Byrds, The Who, The Rolling Stones), blues (B.B. King), pop (Beach Boys) plus... some Frank Sinatra! Six albums are not available: by The Beatles and Bob Dylan, as usual, and by Them and Sonics. Enjoy!

Stay in touch with the new playlists!
