Below is an at-a-glance look at the Philadelphia area musicians included among Rolling Stone's 2020 list of the 500 Best Albums.  I personally was surprised that The Rising wasn't listed and I would have included Magic.  But that's just me. 

No. 21: "Born to Run" by Bruce Springsteen (1975)
No. 26: "Horses" by Patti Smith (1975)
No. 66: "A Love Supreme" by John Coltrane (1965)
No. 91: "Darkness on the Edge of Town" by Bruce Springsteen (1978)
No. 99: "Red" by Taylor Swift (2012)
No. 142: "Born in the U.S.A." by Bruce Springsteen (1984)
No. 150: "Nebraska" by Bruce Springsteen (1982) 
No. 212: "Wild is the Wind" by Nina Simone (1966) 
No. 232: "Giant Steps" by John Coltrane (1960)
No. 317: "Lady in Satin" by Billie Holiday (1958)
No. 345: "The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle" by Bruce Springsteen (1973)
No. 393: "1989" by Taylor Swift (2014)
No. 396: "Something/Anything" by Todd Rundgren (1972) 
No. 416: "Things Fall Apart" by The Roots (1999)


The SPL Rocks!

"Rolling Stones updated Top 500"

I don't care what albums Mick and Keith like

Oh you mean Rolling Stone, the magazine, ok that makes sense

Thanks for the info, hope all is well 


No. 91: "Darkness on the Edge of Town" by Bruce Springsteen (1978)

+ outtakes = No. 1 

None of those albums have 60 songs on them

I suggest Tillywilly Comprehensive Darkness Outtakes Collection

people would jump onstage and grab me by the head and scream, ‘tilly! bootlegs!'"
