While I'm certain there's someone who graduated from high school in the mid-'90s that claims 1995 as the greatest year ever in music, I'm inclined to go to the other end of the continuum. A Hootie album was the #1 seller that year ferchrissakes.However, as indicated by the wonderful scans above, 1995 was a prime year for CD releases of older music: catalog albums, greatest hits, other compilations. In fact, greatest hits albums by Garth Brooks, Springsteen, and Michael Jackson held the #1 spot on the Billboard album charts for a combined 12 weeks and the Beatles' first anthology compilation was on top for another 3. I didn't have much spending money in '95 but, if memory serves, I spent what little CD money I had on catalog albums.That web address for ICE Online was certainly cutting edge at the time. In '95, I was paying per minute on dial-up AOL. But it's the tilde that really brought back the memories as those were ubiquitous in URLs back then.
