Yoakam's classic country: Even though Dwight Yoakam's sold over 25 million albums, the country-centered singer/songwriter still flies pretty far under the commercial radar.

Living Colour's landmark album: Long before the fusion of funk, metal and hard rock hit the airwaves, Living Colour was slugging it out in the New York scene and blowing audiences away with such unheard of experimentation.

The Mac is back: Speaking of timeless albums, few are as revered as Fleetwood Mac's 1977 masterpiece "Rumours." With over 40 million copies sold and counting, the group just reissued the collection in various formats with a slew of bonus material, though the true treat for fans this season is catching Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham performing smashes like "Dreams," "Go Your Own Way," "Don't Stop" and dozens more on the road.
