Rolling Stone (1997): Influential Female Albums

I dug this up a few months back. It's from Rolling Stone's first Women in Rock issue (the one with Courtney Love, Tina Turner and Madonna on the cover, published in the 11/13/97 edition).

Any albums up to that point that should havebeen included?

Re: Rolling Stone (1997): Influential Female Albums

I think this fell by the wayside- probably because it wasn't as "important" as some other lists that got added in the last update and such. I definitely think this one is notable- that other one I had popsted a way back- with the top 100 women in rock (from Women Who Rock magazine), that had one album cited for each- probably less so.

Just bumping in the event that it did get forgotten.
