Greg Kot & Jim DeRogatis Discuss 20 albums you (probably) haven't heard, but need to know about.
We're all familiar with the standard lists of "the Greatest Albums in Rock History" from Rolling Stone, VH1, and the like, and they're always full of the usual suspects. In this presentation, Jim and Greg will introduce you to albums that they consider every bit as classic and essential as, say, "Sgt. Pepper's" in terms of musical and lyrical brilliance and enduring influence on subsequent generations of musicians, but which aren't as often cited in the canon, and which you may never have heard!
