What's an ALBUM?? And WHY??


The Drop – “Classical Space Jazz 1”

(from Long Held Grudges)


This week I’m kicking off another multi-part series. It’ll focus on the album as art form, and give you my favorites and other notable albums, decade by decade.

Since this first part will focus mostly on the 1950s, and there were comparatively fewer albums in those decades, I’ll also talk about the history of the album – why & how it came about, and why it matters.

Are you an album fan? Or do you prefer to listen to single songs or playlists? Does music hit you differently when absorbed in album form? What are some of your favorite albums from the 1950s? And/or do you know of any pre-album albums from earlier decades? Discuss dammit!
