All-time top 1000 albums" by Colin Larkin
All Time Top 1000 Albums is a book by Colin Larkin, creator and editor of the Encyclopedia of Popular Music. The book was first published by Guinness Publishing in 1994. The list presented is the result of over 200,000 votes cast from the public in record shops, Universities, Schools and MIDEM - and ranked in order. Each album is annotated with a 100 word review, details of its creation and notes about the band or artist who recorded it.
The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album made the top spot in the first edition and the same band's Revolver consistently made the top five in each edition of the book.
