Every Picture Tells a Story / Rod Stewart

Featuring his smash “Maggie May,” this is the album established Rod Stewart as a superstar who has enjoyed one of the longest careers in rock music. Stewart created his own sound — a mixture of folk, rock ‘n’ roll, blues and soul that sounded basically acoustic even when using electric guitars, bass and organ in the mix of acoustic instruments.

The Essential Aerosmith

Beginning with “Dream On,” Aerosmith’s ability to skillfully produce both ballads and rock music boosted their popularity during the ’70s, when they had a string of gold and platinum albums. After a lull throughout much of the ’80s, Aerosmith pulled off one of the most remarkable comebacks in rock history, returning to the top of the charts with a group of albums that equaled, if not surpassed, the popularity of their early albums.

The Art and Making of Peanuts Animation

This deluxe visual history treats Peanuts fans to an in-depth look at the art and making of the beloved animated Peanuts specials. From 1965’s original classic “A Charlie Brown Christmas” through the 2011 release of “Happiness is a Warm Blanket,” animation historian Charles Solomon goes behind the scenes of all 45 films, exploring the process of bringing a much-loved comic strip to life.

The Twilight Zone Encyclopedia

Noted film historian, producer and documentarian Steven Rubin has put together a rich, fact-filled “Twilight Zone” collectible, packed with vibrant history, amazing trivia and rare photographs — perfect for fans of Rod Serling’s brilliant series and anyone who appreciates vintage television.

American Pie / Don McLean

A long, winding elegy for rock and roll, Don McLean’s classic “American Pie” spent four weeks on the Billboard charts, but that smash success was eclipsed by its enduring afterlife in the culture, where it served as the fodder for nostalgia and parodies for decades, eventually earning entry into the National Recording Registry in 2017.

Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984-1994

As a solo artist, Sting has carried himself with the grace of an aristocrat, retaining his air of dignity no matter what the musical setting. Jazz, blues, folk, and theater music influences have all helped to shape his post-Police sound. This album is a gathering of tracks from Sting’s first four solo albums.
