"The All-Time Greatest Rock Albums chosen by the worlds top DJ's and critics" Compiled by Paul Gambaccini As published by Quick Fox, New York, 1978, ISBN 0.86001.494.0 In 1977, some 50 rock critics and DJ's of U.K. and U.S. were asked to list "the ten greatest rock albums of all-time, in order of preference". The list was compiled by Paul Gambaccini in 1978.
"In my years with 'Rolling Stone' and BBC Radio 1 I've become aware of how seriously consumers weigh the opinions of rock critics before purchasing LPs. I polled the English-speaking world's leading critics and compiled this book. The list should be a definitive buyer's guide to rock LPs, and the photographs and top tens of each critic in the second section of the book should prove an irresistible treat for rock fans. After all, we are voyeuristic about our leading writers as any interest group." Paul Gambaccini
