french list # 4 : Rock and Folk 300 records 1965-95

There was a time (the 90s) when French rock magazine Rock & Folk used to publish a "Best records fo all times" special issue every other year...
I already gave you 1991, and I saw you already have the 1999 edition
Here's 1995's '300 disques incontournables" (300 records that cannot be overlooked)

Re: french list # 4 : Rock and Folk 300 records 1965-95

I own this 1995 special issue! I was 18 and it was the time I started buying lots of records and I remember it was my guide. I immediately bought "pet sounds", "live at Leeds" and "funhouse" after having read the reviews !
It was a good period...

Re: french list # 4 : Rock and Folk 300 records 1965-95

Thanks Nicolas!

Several of the albums are noted under the wrong year. I have no problem with that, most likely the release year in France was different in some cases.

But in a few cases the release year is closer to another album by the same artist. Could you please check if the titles are correct for these albums:

1967 CREAM Fresh cream
1981 RITA MITSOUKO The no comprendo
1986 MANO NEGRA Puta's fever
1987 ISSAK Chris Silvertone
1988 JANE'S ADDICTION Ritual de lo habitual
1988 PUBLIC ENEMY Fear of a black planet
1993 BLUR Parklife

Sorry for being such a nitpicker.

Re: french list # 4 : Rock and Folk 300 records 1965-95

sorry, I copied/pasted the file from another guy and didn't check it. The years were wrong.
This is the correct timing :

Cream Fresh Cream (1966)
the No comprendo is an album from 1986
Chris Isaak Silvertone (1985)
La Mano Negra's Puta's Fever is from 1989
Fear of a black planet is 1990
blur Parklife (1994)

Re: french list # 4 : Rock and Folk 300 records 1965-95

oh sorry I forgot

ritual de lo habitual by Jane's Addiction is from 1990

Re: french list # 4 : Rock and Folk 300 records 1965-95

The albums titles were correct then. Thanks Nicolas.
