The Best of Buddy Holly - The Millennium Collection

Buddy Holly is perhaps the most anomalous legend of ’50s rock & roll. He had his share of hits, and he achieved major rock ‘n roll stardom, but his importance transcends any sales figures or even the particulars of any one song (or group of songs) that he wrote or recorded.

The Immaculate Collection / Madonna

This collection could well be considered the soundtrack to the 1980s. It showcases 15 of Madonna’s greatest hits between 1983 and 1990. It’s a flawless party track list from the first tropical cowbell on “Holiday.”

Just Plain Dick

Author Kevin Mattson chronicles one of the seminal episodes in Richard Nixon’s political career — the 1952 presidential election, in which Nixon’s now famous “Checkers” speech, delivered on national television, saved his spot as vice presidential candidate on the Republican ticket.

The Shawshank Redemption

A prominent banker unjustly convicted of murder spends many years in the Shawshank prison. He is befriended by a convict who knows the ropes and helps him to cope with the frightening realities of prison life. Starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins; based on a short story by Stephen King.

Greatest Hits / Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen proved to be that rarity among popular musicians — an artist who maintained his status as a frontline recording and performing star, consistently selling millions of albums and selling out arenas and stadiums around the world year after year, as well as retaining widespread critical approbation with ecstatic reviews greeting those discs and shows.

Seinfeld, Season 1

A stand-up comedian and his three offbeat friends weather the pitfalls and payoffs of life in New York City in the ’90s in this classic and enduring TV sitcom. Starring Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards.
