Time-Life Album Discography, Part 16:
Legendary Singers

By Mike Callahan, Randy Watts, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: February 19, 2008

By the mid-1980s, Time-Life was still clinging to the "good music" philosophy, but not for too much longer. (The next series was the wildly popular Rock n' Roll Era.) These are 2-LP box sets with a half-sized booklet; silver-grey label.
