HERC's Favorite Albums of 1982 REDUX

HERC published his list of 100 Favorite Albums of 1982 in a single post here on The Hideaway back in December 2013. The catch was he only ranked his Top 26 albums and just listed the other 74 alphabetically by title.  Before the year had ended however, HERC went back and ranked all the albums on the list after extensive listening sessions.  He is proud to share that full list with us today.  It's going to come in handy for the next two posts.
