Description

Straight from the heart of the music industry, a book that answers a question that has nagged music fans across the nation. What are the best Canadian albums of all time? A unique panel of those who live and breathe Canadian music was assembled. Musicians, broadcasters, club owners, retailers, roadies, and more — literally hundreds of people across the country cast their votes in this unprecedented poll. Rush's Neil Peart, Ron Sexsmith, Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies, Holly Cole, Kim Stockwood, Sass Jordon, Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea, Saturday Night Blues host Holger Peterson, and The Vinyl Café's Stuart McLean are just a few of the people who voted for their favourite albums. Who will make the top 10? Neil or Joni? Rush or The Hip? Leonard or Gordon? The Band or Arcade Fire? The countdown in on! A groundbreaking book, The Top 100 Canadian Albums features cover reproductions and descriptions for each of the albums that make it onto the list, as well as documentary photographs, in-depth interviews, fascinating facts, and musician-contributed sidebars.
