Led Zeppelin IV
We take a quick walk through Led Zeppelin's most commercially successful album.

The Great Twenty-Eight by Chuck Berry
In it’s debut episode, Album University’s Vinyl Virgin Vic Vaughn is introduced to one of the greatest compilation albums ever released; The Great Twenty-Eight by Chuck Berry.
