1981

UPDATED

100+ albums uit 1981, zo maar een goed muziekjaar, en minstens zo goed als 1979! (in alfabetische volgorde; platen aangemerkt met eenπŸ‘ˆπŸΏ heb ik zelf in de collectie, ofwel op cd ofwel lp, of in sommige gevallen op beide formats [This Heat in alle beschikbare edities zelfs!]; MotΓΆrhead had ik ooit op een oude cd, maar in een vlaag van verstandsverbijstering verkocht en nu is het te laat). Ik heb ook een aantal EPs erin gezet, omdat in een aantal gevallen dat het debuut van de betreffende band/artiest betreft, dan wel een belangrijke plaat in het Ε“uvre is. Daaronder een aantal persoonlijke top-10 lijstjes.
