Description

Back by popular demand, here is the encore edition of the ultimate guide to Canadian music, featuring the best albums that Canadian musicians ever produced and some new interviews not included in the original hardcover edition. An unprecedented book, The Top 100 Canadian Albums includes the finest albums in Canadian music history chosen by a blue-ribbon panel. The results from 1 to 100 have sparked passionate debate among Canada's music aficionados. This book is jam-packed with incredible behind-the-scenes stories about the making of the albums and the history of Canadian music, as told by the musicians themselves. Find out how Gordon Lightfoot helped get Blue Rodeo back to Canada. Learn about the song that connects The Guess Who to The Tragically Hip. Meet Simply Saucer, the band who waited 30 years for its album to become a hit. Connect the dots between Don Messer and Music from Big Pink. Despite debate about what is and isn't on the list (or perhaps because of it), The Top 100 Canadian Albums is the essential book on Canadian music — not to be missed!
