Must-Have Recordings? That's their opinion, anyway, and surely to some degree they (whoever made up this list) are surely right. But what oddities are the following:

*David Bowie, Hunky Dory
*Elvis Costello, Get Happy!
*Blondie, Plastic Letters
*Devo, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo
*Tom Waits, Swordfish Trombones
*Bruce Springsteen, Greetings From Asbury Park or Darkness at the Edge of Town.

Not real sure Devo deserves a rank at all -- the others are generally less-than-stellar work by major artists.
