My cable home page had this story in their entertainment news.

Someone else will have to go find the list, I have hockey practice tonight.

Raitt Album on `Definitive 200' List
Tuesday, March 6, 2007 2:47 PM EST
The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — "Nick of Time" was a turning point for Bonnie Raitt. The 1989 album elevated the blues singer-songwriter to a new level of success and earned her three Grammy Awards.

Now it's part of the "Definitive 200" list of albums and soundtracks co-sponsored by the National Association of Recording Merchandisers and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The list, which was chosen by a committee of music retailers within NARM, was released Tuesday.

Raitt, 57, told The Associated Press that her album was "the right album for the right time." "Nick of Time" is ranked at No. 137, between Sarah McLachlan's "Surfacing" and Metallica's "Ride the Lightning."

The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" is No. 1. Other albums in the top 10 include U2's "The Joshua Tree," Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon," Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and Carole King's "Tapestry."

Raitt, who's made her share of best-of lists over the years, said she'd find it difficult to rank albums by her favorite artists.

"I'm always asked about things ... `What are the most significant, you know, 10 of this or 20 of that,'" she said. "But what's important is that it's not a contest. You do your best work and everybody's got a subjective opinion about what albums mean the most to them."

These lists always crack me up (and make me think that possibly the person compiling is maybe ON CRACK). I mean the order in which some of this stuff appears if it's meant to represent 1st to 200th in order of what's 'most definitive' ??? And some of the albums which are included. Ok - I'll admit to not being a rap fan so can't get behind any of those entries which are appearing (there goes 1/2 the list) but BARBARA STREISAND – A STAR IS BORN – 1976 ???? Say wa??? SOUNDTRACK – GREASE – 1980??? Anybody home up there??? SOUNDTRACK – TITANIC – 1997 ??? Ok, now I'm laughing because this is definitevly ludicrious (tell me he's not on the list and what is with the movie soundtracks)

There are some great albums on that list, but some noteable ommisions.....

but since this list came from The National Association of Recording Merchandisers and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.....

it doest surprise me, they are concerned with what sells the most, and i belive the list reflects that.

Hell, A Love Surpreme made the cut, it can't be THAT bad

...funny thing was,that production quality aside,Bonnie's work before that album was superior--her live shows were way cooler & grittier--that album was washed dry of the gritty Bonnie,which thankfully still exists in the music,guitar & voice of Susan T.

Those lists are always very shakey. Music is too subjective and rarely will you find people that agree. Everyone has their own lists.

It's a great feeling to see that any Artisit you appreciate has been recognized and rewarded by making "The List". Any List. But because we now accept being on "any list" that "Rewards"...we, have to understand the source. If there was a Top 100 Rock and Blues Bands of all Time, the ABB would be at the top of that list and everyone here would be cool. But for the ABB not to be mentioned with the likes of, Michael Jackson, Def Leppard, L.L.Cool J, Shakira and Mariah Carey...is just fine with me.
