Summer Reading, Reading Lists XVII

This time a listening list.  Turning again to NPR, who, back on July 24th, published their 150 Greatest Albums Made by Women list (the link is to the top ten).  It covers pop, rock, country, R & B, and jazz albums.  To cut to the chase (or to spoil the suspense, depending on how you look at it), Joni Mitchell’s Blue takes the top spot, while I could quarrel with that (and with Kate Bush’s Hounds of Love being buried somewhere in the mid-forties), this is an heroic undertaking, a thoughtful compilation (with well written notes for each record), and lots of good suggestions for something to either put on the turntable or fill the iPhone headphones on a summer afternoon or evening.
