British Library to display Number 1 LPs

Records Every single number one album from the last 50 years is to form part of a display
opening today at the British Library in London. To mark 50 years of the
album charts, the British Library asked every MP to name his or her favourite number one. Pathetically, although only 41 replied. John Whittingdale (Tory chairman of the
culture, media and sport select committee) rather surprisingly chose Deep Purple’s Machine
Head
. Cabinet ministers who replied include Alan Johnson (the
Beatles’ Revolver) and Peter Hain (Manic Street Preachers’ This Is My
Truth Tell Me Yours). Lib Dem Lembit Opik chose the album which topped
the poll, Led Zeppelin II.
