Late Registration is the second studio album by American hip hop artist Kanye West, released in 2005.

West's production for Late Registration was notably more lush and elaborate than his 2004 debut The College Dropout. The focal point of West's production style was the use of sped-up vocal samples from soul records. However, such sampling had been much copied by others; with that overuse, and also because West felt he had become too dependent on the technique, he decided to find a new sound.

On Late Registration, West drew inspiration from English trip hop band Portishead and collaborated with film score composer Jon Brion. West was able to utilize production styles and instruments not commonly associated with hip-hop music, including intricate sampling methods and string orchestration. The album features guest contributions from artists such as Jay-Z, Common, Lupe Fiasco, The Game, Jamie Foxx, Nas, Brandy, and Adam Levine.

Adam Levine and Kanye had previously collaborated when Maroon 5 commissioned West to produce a remix for "This Love" and later developed a friendship while sitting together on a flight to Rome for the 2004 MTV Europe Music Awards. While playing songs from his second album on his iPod for him during the flight, West came across the demo for "Heard 'Em Say" to which Levine added a R&B hook he had recently written and thought was perfect for it. The track was recorded quickly after the 2005 Grammy Awards ceremony, as Levine only had a couple of free hours available for time in the studio.

Late Registration produced five singles, including the international hits "Touch the Sky", "Heard 'Em Say" and "Gold Digger", the latter of which topped the Billboard Hot 100 at number one.

The album received a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album at the 2006 Grammy Awards. West's single "Gold Digger" received the Grammy award for Best Rap Solo Performance. He also won Best Rap Song for "Diamonds from Sierra Leone."

Rolling Stone: "Here, Kanye really started showing off. Ranging from triumphal autobiography ("Touch the Sky") to witty club pop ("Gold Digger"), James Bond themes to Houston hip-hop, his second disc remade the musical landscape in his own oddball image"

Rolling Stone named it the best album of 2005, and included it at number 118 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

At Last! is the debut studio album by American blues and soul artist Etta James (January 25, 1938 – January 20, 2012), released in 1960.

Since its release, At Last! has been praised by many music critics. Stephen Cook of Allmusic gave the album five out of five stars, and, about James, wrote, "one hears the singer at her peak in a swinging and varied program of blues, R&B, and jazz standards." James's voice, "expertly handles jazz standards like "Stormy Weather" and "A Sunday Kind of Love," as well as Willie Dixon's blues classic "I Just Want to Make Love to You." James demonstrates her keen facility on the title track in particular, as she easily moves from powerful blues shouting to more subtle, airy phrasing.

She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999, and the Blues Hall of Fame in 2001.

Rolling Stone: "1955's "Roll With Me, Henry" made this self-described "juvenile delinquent" a sexually precocious teenage star. Six years later, Etta James bloomed into a fiery interpreter on this spellbinding LP. Hitting the pop and R&B charts, she created a new vocal model: the crossover diva."

The album is number 119 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Sweetheart of the Rodeo is the sixth album by American rock band The Byrds, released in 1968.

Recorded with the addition of country rock pioneer Gram Parsons, it was influential as the first major country rock album by an established act and represented a stylistic move away from the psychedelic rock of the band's previous LP, The Notorious Byrd Brothers. The Byrds had occasionally experimented with country music on their four previous albums, but Sweetheart of the Rodeo represented their fullest immersion into the genre thus far.

David Crosby and Michael Clarke had departed the band in late 1967, leaving Roger McGuinn as leader of The Byrds, along with Chris Hillman, the only other remaining member of the band. Unbeknownst to McGuinn or Hillman, Parsons had his own musical agenda in which he planned to marry his love of traditional country music (which he saw as being the purest form of American music) with youth culture's passion for rock. Tension developed between Parsons and the rest of the band and by the time the album was released in August, Parsons had left the band.

Rolling Stone also praised the album in its September 1968 issue, with Jon Landau writing "The Byrds, in doing country as country, show just how powerful and relevant unadorned country music is to the music of today." Landau added "they leave just enough rock in the drums to let you know that they can still play rock & roll."

Ultimately, The Byrds' experimentation with the country genre on Sweetheart of the Rodeo was slightly ahead of its time, to the detriment of the band's commercial fortunes, as the international success of country rock flavored bands like The Eagles, America, and Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show.

Rolling Stone: "Driven by new member Gram Parsons, the Byrds nailed a bold Nashville classicism, dressing Bob Dylan and Merle Haggard songs in steel guitar and rock & roll drive. The results set the stage for country rock."

The album is ranked number 120 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Stand! is the fourth album by soul/funk band Sly and the Family Stone, released in 1969.

Written and produced by lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Sly Stone, Stand! is considered an artistic high-point of the band's career, released just before the group's celebrated performance at the Woodstock festival.

It includes several hit singles, such as "Sing a Simple Song", "I Want to Take You Higher", "Stand!", and "Everyday People".

Rolling Stone: "Funk-rock-soul party politics at its most inclusive and exciting – Sly Stone rides the bonfire momentum of the civil rights movement in "Stand!" and "You Can Make It If You Try" without denying the intrinsic divisions that threatened civil war"

The album is number 121 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

The Harder They Come is the soundtrack album to the film of the same name, released in 1972.

The heart of the soundtrack comes from performances by the film's star, reggae singer Jimmy Cliff. Only the title track "The Harder They Come" was recorded by Cliff specifically for the soundtrack, with three earlier songs by Cliff added. The remainder of the album is a compilation of singles released in Jamaica from the period of 1967 through 1972, assembled by the The Harder They Come director and co-writer, Perry Henzell, from songs by favored reggae singers. In addition to Cliff, these artists include The Melodians, The Slickers, DJ Scotty, and seminal early reggae stars Desmond Dekker and Toots and the Maytals.

The soundtrack album played a major part in popularizing reggae in the United States and the world beyond, the film itself preventing the genre from remaining an isolated phenomenon in Jamaica.

Jimmy Cliff, OM (born James Chambers; 1 April 1948) is a Jamaican ska and reggae musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer and actor. He is the only living musician to hold the Order of Merit, the highest honor that can be granted by the Jamaican government for achievements in the arts and sciences. Cliff is best known among mainstream audiences for songs such as "Wonderful World, Beautiful People", "Many Rivers to Cross", "You Can Get It If You Really Want", "The Harder They Come", "Reggae Night" and "Hakuna Matata", and his covers of Cat Stevens' "Wild World", and Johnny Nash's "I Can See Clearly Now" from the film Cool Runnings. He starred in the film The Harder They Come, which helped popularize reggae across the world. Cliff was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.

The album is number 122 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Raising Hell is the third studio album by hip hop group Run–D.M.C., released in 1986.

The breakthrough album trumped standing perceptions of commercial viability for hip-hop groups, achieving triple-platinum status and receiving critical attention from quarters that had previously ignored hip hop, dismissing it as a fad.

Raising Hell features the well-known cover "Walk This Way" featuring Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith. It was the first such fusion to make a significant impact on the charts, becoming the first rap song to crack the top 5 of The Billboard Hot 100. Raising Hell peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B Albums chart as the first hip hop/rap album to do so.

Singles included "My Adidas", "Walk This Way", "You Be Illin'", and "It's Tricky".

The album is number 123 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Moby Grape is the debut album by rock band Moby Grape, released in 1967.

Coming from the San Francisco scene, their reputation quickly grew to immense proportions, leading to a bidding war and a contract with Columbia Records.

The cover photograph is by noted rock photographer Jim Marshall. On the original release, Don Stevenson is shown "flipping the bird" on the washboard. It was airbrushed out on subsequent pressings, but the UK re-issue on Edsel/Demon restored it.

Moby Grape "remains one of the very few psychedelic masterpieces ever recorded." The 1983 Rolling Stone Record Guide said their "debut LP is as fresh and exhilarating today as it was when it exploded out of San Francisco during 1967's summer of love."

Rolling Stone: "San Francisco rock at its '67 peak, this is genuine hippie power pop. Moby Grape sang like demons and wrote crisp songs packed with lysergic country-blues excitement, while the band's three guitarists – Jerry Miller, Peter Lewis and Skip Spence – created a network of lightning."

The album is number 124 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

Pearl is the second and final solo studio album by Janis Joplin, released posthumously in January 1971.

The album has a more polished feel than the albums she recorded with Big Brother and the Holding Company and the Kozmic Blues Band due to the expertise of producer Paul A. Rothchild and her new backing musicians. Rothchild was best known as the recording studio producer of The Doors, and worked well with Joplin, calling her a producer's dream. Together they were able to craft an album that showcased her extraordinary vocal talents.

Pearl features the number one hit "Me and Bobby McGee", on which she played acoustic guitar, written by Kris Kristofferson and Fred Foster; "Trust Me", by Bobby Womack, written for Joplin; Howard Tate's "Get It While You Can", showcasing her vocal range; and the original songs "Move Over" and "Mercedes Benz", the latter co-written by Joplin, Bobby Neuwirth and Michael McClure.

Joplin sang on all tracks except "Buried Alive in the Blues", which remained a Full Tilt Boogie instrumental because she died before adding vocals, but she approved the instrumental track. The song's writer Nick Gravenites was offered to sing it as a tribute to Joplin, but he turned it down. The recording sessions, starting in early September, ended with Joplin's untimely death on October 4, 1970. Her final session, which took place on Thursday, October 1 after a break of several days, yielded her a cappella "Mercedes Benz." It was the last song she recorded before her death.

She died October 4, 1970 of a heroin overdose at the age of 27.

Pearl peaked at number one on the Billboard 200, holding that spot for nine weeks.

Joplin was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995.

The album is number 125 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
This week would've been Janis Joplin's 75th birthday.

Agreed and in so many ways different from all subsequent albums...though still with some unifying themes. Its funny, as a long time Hawkwind fan whose introduced their music to countless folks over the years - many who've become big fans...this is an album that some (non metal/non progressive liking folks) I've played Hawkwind for and who haven't otherwise liked them have expressed appreciation for.

Catch a Fire is the fifth album by Jamaican reggae band Bob Marley and The Wailers, released in 1973.

In 1971, Marley toured Great Britain with Nash and the Wailers. CBS lost interest in the group, leaving the band without enough money to return to Jamaica and unable to work due to work permit issues. Promoter Brent Clarke contacted Island Records, who promised an advance of £8000 for their next album and lent the Wailers money for their way back to Jamaica. In the winter of 1972, Marley flew back to London to present the master tapes. The deal with Island led to a dispute with CBS and Sims, to whom the band were already contracted. The case was won by CBS, who received US$9,000 and two percent of royalties from the band's first six albums, and Sims received £5,000 and the publishing rights to the Wailers songs.

The original 1973 vinyl release was encased in a sleeve depicting a Zippo lighter. The sleeve functioned like a real Zippo lighter case, opening at a side hinge to reveal the record within. Only the original pressing of 20,000 had the Zippo cover, subsequent pressings had an alternative cover featuring a portrait of Marley smoking a "spliff" or joint, with the album now credited to "Bob Marley and the Wailers". Copies of the record from the original pressings have since become collectors' items.

Critics have called Catch a Fire one of the greatest reggae albums of all time.

The album is number 126 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Younger Than Yesterday is the fourth album by the American rock band the Byrds, released in 1967.

It saw the band continuing to integrate elements of psychedelic rock into their music, including brass instruments, reverse tape effects and an electronic oscillator. The album also marked the emergence of the band's bass player Chris Hillman as a talented songwriter and vocalist. This album saw him credited as the sole composer of four songs and a co-writer of "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star". Byrds expert Tim Connors has noted that two of Hillman's compositions on Younger Than Yesterday exhibited country and western influences and thus can be seen as early indicators of the country rock experimentation that would feature—to a greater or lesser degree—on all of the Byrds' subsequent albums.

The album's front cover featured a composite multiple exposure photograph of the band, taken by Frank Bez.

The album is number 127 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Raw Power is the third studio album by Iggy and The Stooges, released in 1973.

After their first two albums, The Stooges (1969) and Fun House (1970) were released to little commercial success, The Stooges were in disarray: they had officially broken up, bassist Dave Alexander was fighting alcoholism, and singer Iggy Pop's heroin addiction was escalating prior to the intervention of David Bowie.

Iggy Pop relocated to London, signed on as a solo artist to MainMan Management (who also handled Bowie) and Columbia Records to record an album with James Williamson, who had joined The Stooges as a second guitarist in late 1970. Williamson suggested that former Stooges guitarist Ron Asheton and drummer Scott Asheton fly over and participate in the recording sessions. With Williamson already on guitar, Ron was relegated to bass.

Pop produced and mixed the album by himself; unfortunately, his botched first attempt mixed most of the instruments into one stereo channel and the vocals into the other, with little regard for balance or tone quality. Tony DeFries, the head of MainMan, informed Pop that the album would be remixed by Bowie. Due to budgetary constraints, Bowie remixed the songs in a single day in an inexpensive studio. Bowie recalled, "He wanted me to mix Raw Power, so he brought the 24-track tape in, and he put it up. He had the band on one track, lead guitar on another and him on a third. Out of 24 tracks there were just three tracks that were used. He said 'see what you can do with this'."

Columbia dropped their contract. The Stooges were also dumped by MainMan – Tony DeFries lost patience with the band after the large sum of money he advanced to them was bankrolled on drugs. The Stooges broke up in February 1974. After spending time in a drug-fueled stupor in L.A. – and later rehab at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute – Pop re-joined Bowie's entourage, and emerged as a solo artist in 1976.

Singer and guitarist Kurt Cobain of the band Nirvana wrote in his Journals numerous times that Raw Power was his favorite album of all time. Johnny Marr of The Smiths has also spoken highly of the record and James Williamson's guitar playing on the album: "I'm his biggest fan. He has the technical ability of Jimmy Page without being as studious, and the swagger of Keith Richards without being sloppy. He's both demonic and intellectual." Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols once claimed that he learned to play guitar by taking speed and playing along to Raw Power. Henry Rollins of Black Flag has "Search & Destroy" tattooed across his shoulder blades. Mötley Crüe founder Nikki Sixx has cited it as a major influence: "When I was fifteen years old, I remember Iggy and the Stooges’ song 'Search and Destroy' reaching out from my speakers to me like my own personal anthem." Red Hot Chili Peppers and Def Leppard covered "Search and Destroy". Guns N' Roses covered "Raw Power".

Raw Power is number 128 on Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

Remain in Light is the fourth studio album by American new wave band Talking Heads, released in 1980.

The members of Talking Heads wanted to make an album that dispelled notions of frontman and chief lyricist David Byrne leading a back-up band. They decided to experiment with African polyrhythms and, with producer Brian Eno, recorded the instrumental tracks as a series of samples and loops, a novel idea at the time. Two singles were released from Remain in Light: "Once in a Lifetime" and "Houses in Motion".

The artwork for the album's cover was crafted with the help of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's computers and designing company M&Co.

Remain in Light was widely acclaimed by critics for its cohesive merging of disparate genres and sonic experimentation. It is often considered Talking Heads' magnum opus.

The album is number 129 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
