UK Lists Vs. US Lists

Eclectic would be a lightly used word to describe the British published Classic Tracks Back To Back Singles/Albums (Thunder Bay). It's always interesting to read British Magazine lists and then read one from a U.S. one. This book is surprisingly light on obscure British albums. By the way, the book doesn't rate these albums/singles, but presents them chronologically. The surprise, considering that Country music isn't king in the U.K., was to see albums by Lucinda Williams, Garth Brooks, Dwight Yoakam and the Dixie Chicks. The singles section is more British oriented and some obscure (to these U.S. ears) stuff. This is a big colorful read, and interspersed throughout are little music history lessons.
