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).

Three Dog Night - The Complete Hit Singles

Three Dog Night’s greatest hits are packaged in one place — including the insistent break and stop and build of “One,” the paranoid hippie vocal on “Mama Told Me (Not to Come),” the urgent yet soft intro to Laura Nyro’s excellent “Eli’s Coming” breaking into accelerated warnings, Jerimiah giving you a well earned boost with “Joy to the World” and the yearning voice for human compassion with “Easy to Be Hard.”

Rapper's Delight

Hip hop’s roots as a musical phenomenon are subject to debate, but its roots as a commercial phenomenon are much clearer. They trace back directly to January 5, 1980, when the song “Rapper’s Delight” became the first hip hop single ever to reach the Billboard top 40.

General Motors: A Photographic History

The Day Wall Street Exploded
