I have been a bit behind in responding to some challenges, so I will try to catch up now.  I was tagged to do this challenge by Trish of

Here are the rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Sixteen albums you’ve heard that changed the way you thought about music…if you are too young to have owned albums you can surely chose songs.  List the first sixteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag two friends, or more if you have the time.

Here are my answers in random order, and some are the music but not a particular album:

Creedence Clearwater Revival  Chronicle

Johnny Cash Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison

Beethoven The Ninth Symphony

Beethoven “Fur Elise”

Beethoven The Fifth Symphony

Miles Davis “Harlem Nocturne”

Kris Kristofferson “To Beat the Devil”
