Yes, I think this list could be included, but perhaps I will not add ongoing lists in the coming update.

Doebling also host a radio programme "Roots" with many best of year lists, which could probably also be included. At least if/when the list of year becomes complete.

I mean to write/copy the artists and titles to this thread, so that I can then easily copy them into Excel.

Thanks!

Some of these albums actually have enjoyed decent levels of acclaim (see Exile in Guyville), so how is that understimated/forgotten? :) (It wasn't a huge commercial success, though.)

You're welcome, Henrik!

JR, I've been wondering that, too. A few others such as "Lady in Satin" or "In the Wee Small Hours" also seem quite weird in that regard. I assume he wanted to have albums from diverse eras and genres and just wasn't as well-versed in some areas, thus having to rely on a few classics here and there. His focal point seems to be blues/folk/country/roots rock type stuff.
