Is my music collection considered “oldies” now?

18 Feb

In 1986, when I was sixteen years old, if you had asked me my opinion of music that was released twenty-five prior to that (in 1961)…music by artists such as Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Chuck Berry was popular at that time…I wasn’t interested in that type of music and I probably would of considered it “ancient”.

It’s now 2011 and 1986 is now twenty-five years in the past!
My taste in music hasn’t changed at all. I still listen to the same great albums that I bought in the ’80s.
My I-pod has a number of albums from 1986.

Look at this list of albums that are now twenty-five years old (listed here in order of release). You can’t deny that they’re all excellent…much better than most of the forgettable “music” that is released today:

  • Black Sabbath “Seventh Star”Β 
  • Ozzy Osbourne “The Ultimate Sin
  • Metallica “Master Of Puppets
  • Van Halen “5150
  • Judas Priest “Turbo”
  • AC/DC “Who Made Who
  • Savatage “Fight For The Rock
  • Loudness “Lightning Strikes
  • Great White “Shot In The Dark
  • Iron Maiden “Somewhere In Time
  • W.A.S.P. “Inside The Electric Circus
  • KiLLeR DWaRfS “Stand Tall

Have you heard any of these albums? What do you think of them?
As for me, even though they’re twenty-five years old now…and nearly every one of these bands have better albums in their catalog (except Metallica—“Master Of Puppets” is legend!…these albums still stand the test of time!
