Elton’s Wonderful Crazy Night ranks at #39, with the magazine calling it a “bluesy celebration filled with delicious reflections and sweet celebrations of what has made his career so significant.”
Bonnie Raitt’s Dig In Deep, is #37, while Sting’s 57th & 9th is in 33rd place.
Paul Simon is No. 12, with Stranger to Stranger.
