We have Pop, Disco, New Wave and Reggae here. Memorable album from the 80's - Alexandr

I'll be hated for adding this amazing woman but "Tapestry" makes 95% of her fame and impact. 5% - the rest! - Alexandr

Completely not true; She also had TWO other #1 albums- "Music" and "Wrap Around Joy", plus a #2- "Rhymes and Reasons", and also a #3- "Thoroughbred".
