Long Shot's Top 50 Albums of 1960

Color me surprised at the relative dearth of quality albums from this year. It was a bit of a struggle to make it to 50 albums worth mentioning here; seems like this year was a relatively stagnant one as far as music is concerned, apart from surf rock starting to catch on a bit more with acts like The Ventures achieving popular success. Oh yeah, and Giant Steps. That's a thing as well, I suppose.
