Continuum puts out something called Thirty-Three and a Third, a series of short books about "critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the past 40 years". Some of the albums in the series: Beach Boys' Pet Sounds; Beatles' Let It Be; Elvis Costello's Armed Forces; James Brown's Live at the Apollo; Jethro Tull's Aqualung; Ramones' Ramones; Neil Young's Harvest; Replacements' Let It Be; and the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street.

Actually, the whole series looks like it might be worth a look, but even better would be to write one. Dylan is conspicious by his absence, as is "Layla". "Another Green World"? "Every Picture Tells A Story"? (Probably no, since Lester Bangs has really done all that can be done with "Maggie May".) "More Songs About Buildings And Food"? "Marquee Moon?" "Easter"? "Flood"? Car Wheels On A Gravel Road"? "Howling Wind"? "Heart Like A wheel?" Somebody should do "Who's Next", but I would respectfully decline as not being qualified. There should be some outright junk, too: "Grand Funk Live!", and Kiss' "Destroyer". (Via Bookslut.)
