Is that the real list. The Beatles album would not have been my choice it should have been Rubber Soul. Saturday Night Fever I really don't get this list. Will it count on Acclaimed Music.
I don't think he was nearly as influential a frontman as say Ian Curtis or Kurt Cobain - they drove the band - can't really say the same about Brown...
Why I think Meet The Beatles is the most important album.
Dylan’s gradual move from folk to rock and roll was inspired by the Beatles (whom Dylan “secretly dug") and the Byrds (whose electrified folk-rock arrangement of Dylan’s then-unreleased “Mr. Tambourine Man” eventually went to Number One in June 1965).
