The Org's 500 *non-Prince* albums you MUST hear before you die List

Thank you Byron for the songs thread! I felt like a spinoff. razz

ATTENTION: ALL UNNUMBERED POSTS WILL BE IGNORED

The rules:

1) You can only name ONE album per post.

2) You must wait until 5 other people have posted before you can name another album.

3) No albums by Prince.

4) You must number your albums.

A running list will be kept so you can keep track of what's been listed and what has not.

First:

Songs In The Key of Life - Stevie Wonder

That's not the name of the album. It's called Gap Band III.

You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton
