151 Albums nominated so far, with only two repeats - one of which is #1 on both lists!

A little less than three weeks left to submit!
Are we allowed to know the two repeats?

Very interested but I understand if you can’t reveal them yet :)

Re: Re-sequencing Sgt. Pepper (And Other Albums by The Beatles)

For Abbey Road I took off a lot of people’s least favourite song - Maxwell’s Silver Hammer and added The Ballad Of John And Yoko in it’s place.

It sounded a little jarring on first listen but I don’t know if that’s because it’s in the wrong place or because Im so familiar with Maxwell being there...

A psychedelic sequel of sorts to my post on Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
