The Mamas and The Papas Greatest Hits

The Mamas and The Papas had a sound that helped define a good portion of the 1960s. Their breezy folk classics had a bit of San Francisco psychedelia woven in, and, despite the sweet harmonies, there was also a dark feel to some of their more popular work. This album includes such classics as “California Dreamin’,” “Monday, Monday” and “Dedicated to the One I Love.”

Jagged Little Pill / Alanis Morissette

By giving all her emotions free rein — from vengeance to desperation to jubilation — and substituting cutting-edge alt-rock power for the softer, folkish backing most often associated with intensely personal singer/songwriter statements, Alanis Morissette empowered millions of young women and launched an entire movement.

Cats (Original Broadway Cast Recording)

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s adaptation of T.S. Eliot’s poems may not have become Broadway’s longest-running musical without the original cast to begin the raves. This recording features Betty Buckley singing “Memory”– the song that made her a star — and the two discs are appropriate for the musical that helped set off Broadway’s “operatic” phase.

Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story

In his signature larger-than-life style, Arnold Schwarzenegger has penned a revealing self-portrait of his illustrious, controversial and truly unique life. He was born in a small Austrian town in a year of famine. He dreamt of moving to America to become a bodybuilding champion and a movie star. By the age of 21 he was living in L.A. and had been crowned Mr. Universe.

The Best That I Could Do 1978-1988 / John Mellencamp

Chronicling John Mellencamp’s first decade of music makes for a dizzying ride. This encompasses arena-rock stompers like “I Need a Lover,” riff-happy heartland snapshots like “Pink Houses” and “Jack and Diane,” hard-charging garage-rockers like “R.O.C.K. In the U.S.A.” and plenty more.

The Essential Yo-Yo Ma

Yo-Yo Ma enjoyed so much well-deserved success early on that by his mid-30s he was able to start exploring in earnest music outside the European Classical canon. His “Essential” collection is helpfully divided into a classical first half (or side one) and a crossover part (or side two).

The Essential John Denver

This collection captures the breadth of John Denver’s incredible musical legacy. It opens with his ’60s folk period with “Leaving on a Jet Plane. Then there’s the down-home side with the back-porch ballad “Take Me Home, Country Roads” and the fiddle-flecked foot-stomper “Thank God I’m a Country Boy.” And of course, soaring pop ballads like “Sunshine on My Shoulders” and “Rocky Mountain High” are included.

Fore! / Huey Lewis & The News

Released in 1986, Huey Lewis & the News’ fourth album sailed to No. 1 on the strength of five Top 10 singles: “Stuck with You,” “Hip to Be Square,” “Jacob’s Ladder,” “I Know What I Like,” and “Doing It All for My Baby.” You’ve tapped your foot to at least one of these tunes over the years. Now tap to them all!

Inventing Late Night

Based on exclusive interviews, author Ben Alba has produced this wonderful history of the first “Tonight” show, complete with terrific photos from the program and revealing insights from more 30 entertainment legends who knew and worked with Steve Allen — including Sid Caesar, Carl Reiner, Jonathan Winters, Don Knotts, and many more.

Breach of Trust

The Warren Commission’s major conclusion was that Lee Harvey Oswald was the “lone assassin” of President John F. Kennedy. Author Gerald McKnight rebuts that view in this meticulous and devastating dissection of the Commission’s work.

Bat Out of Hell / Meat Loaf

A revving Harley of operatic rock purrs at the heart of this 1977 epic that proved to be the career catapult for Meat Loaf’s brand of piano-hammering emotion. This album contains such classics as “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” and “Paradise by the Dashboard Lights.”

Shaun Cassidy - Greatest Hits

A teen idol of the late ’70s, actor and singer Shaun Cassidy rocketed to fame both on the pop charts and on television (“The Hardy Boys Mysteries”), much as his half-brother David Cassidy had earlier in the decade. This collection contains such fan favorites as “Da Doo Ron Ron” and “That’s Rock ‘N’ Roll.”

Musical Milestones

1958 – The hottest single in the U.S. is “The Purple People Eater” by Sheb Wooley. The novelty hit holds the No. 1 spot for six weeks.

1962 – “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” by Ray Charles, is in its second week as a No. 1 single. It retains the top spot for five weeks.

1972 – Elvis Presley plays his first concert in New York City — the first of four sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden. The performances are recorded for later release on the “Elvis As Recorded at Madison Square Garden” album.

1972 – One month after auditioning for Columbia Records, Bruce Springsteen is signed by the label and begins assembling his E Street Band. His debut album, “Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.,” comes out in January 1973.

1979 – The Bee Gees reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the ninth time with “Love You Inside Out.” It becomes the sibling trio’s final chart-topper.

1984 – Cyndi Lauper begins a two-week run on top of the Billboard singles chart with “Time After Time,” off her debut album, “She’s So Unusual.” The track earns a Song of the Year Grammy nomination.

1990 – “Hold On,” by Wilson Phillips, clinches the top spot on the pop chart. The track goes on to win the Billboard Music Award for 1990 Hot 100 Single of the Year and is nominated for a Song of the Year Grammy.

1998 – The Ronettes (“Be My Baby,” “Walking In The Rain”) appear in court for their lawsuit against producer Phil Spector, whom they allege breached their 34-year-old contract by failing to pay royalties since 1963. Although The Ronettes win the case, the New York State Court of Appeals later overturns the decision, saying Spector had unconditional rights to their recordings.

2001 – Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mýa and Pink have the No. 1 single with their cover of Labelle’s 1974 smash, “Lady Marmalade.”
