When Albums Ruled the World (BBC)

Picture of Ray Manzarek in Seattle at the Trip...Between the mid 1960s and the late 1970s, the long-playing record and the albums that graced its grooves changed popular music for ever. For the first time, musicians could escape the confines of the three-minute pop single and express themselves as never before across the expanded artistic canvas of the album. The LP allowed popular music to become an art form – from the glorious artwork adorning gatefold sleeves, to the ideas and concepts that bound the songs together, to the unforgettable music itself.

Includes some excellent contributions by the late Ray Manzarek of The Doors.
