Long Shot's Top 60 Albums of 1962

More albums, hurrah! As Coltrane dominated '61, so too does Bill Evans dominate '62, although jazz music at this point seems to be preparing for a big reinvention of sorts. The folk revival is in full swing with many artists like Dylan, who did not make the list, and like Baez, who did in jaw-dropping fashion. Oh, and we also have the first singles released by my two favorite bands. Taking guesses as to who they are, winner receives nothing except half a bragging point.
