For the purpose of the present review, an album is taken to be any release
of 3 songs or more, packaged in a hard-cover sleeve displaying artwork (and in
some instances, incorporating liner-notes). Only original albums are covered here.
Compilations in the various formats have been ignored in order to focus attention on
the manner in which the artist's works were first introduced. Extended-play recordings
(EPs) whose tracks appear on original LPs are also excluded. In a few cases
re-issues on Compact Disc have featured alternate takes or edited tracks.
This topic is the subject of a separate discussion.

45 rpm (7 in.) EP / 33 rpm (10 in.) LP (none) / 33 rpm (12 in.) LP / Compact Disc (5 in.) CD
