    Curious how you label music genre on the album’s. Elvis Presley & Supremes is listed as ” Hard Rock” , Eric Clapton listed as “New Wave Synth Pop” and Dylan as “Punk Rock”? Really? Enjoy the info but seems to be inappropriate tagged.

      Another DB alignment glitch. Since corrected. Thanks.

      Cheers, Dr. Rock
