Billy Joel decided to take a musical diversion and record an album just for fun. On on An Innocent Man, Joel pays tribute to various popular artist and styles from the pre-Beatles years of his youth and this album's tremendous commercial success was due to the surprising acceptance of Joel's masterful interpretations by 1980s-era listeners.

After more than half a decade crafting and perfecting the songs and the sound, Lucinda Williams finally released the much anticipated <em>Car Wheels on a Gravel Road</em> in 1998. The result is a critical masterpiece which became a landmark in Americana music and all but forged the emeging alt country sub genre.

Talking Heads de ided to preempt the dreaded sophomore record syndrome by using the sarcastic title More Songs About Buildings and Food. Th is album was the first of three with producer Brian Eno, who nicely forged the album with musical unity and more emphasis on the rhythm section.

Recorded in Wales, Robert Plant‘s second album, The Principle of Moments is polished and clinical while maintaining enough rock edge to keep it original and interesting. With the help of a first rate backing band, Plant’s second life as a major recording artist was fully spawned in 1983.

50 years ago, Pink Floyd released their only studio album to include all five members with A Saucerful of Secrets. This was due to the album being recorded both before and after the departure of guitarist and songwriter Syd Barrett, whose sad demise is hauntingly documented in real time on this classic album.

When Men at Work recoded their second album, Cargo, in the summer of 1982, they were still just a regional act and couldn’t anticipate the delayed success of their debut album later that year. When this follow-up was finally released in mid 1983, the group was suddenly Grammy-winning superstars on top of the charts.
