Albums of Glasgow: 30 of the all-time best Glasgow albums as chosen by Glaswegians

These are 30 of the best albums which were made by Glasgow bands and musicians.

Nothing beats putting a good album on and listening to it in full to truly appreciate the piece of work.

Listening to a full album isn't as common as it once used to be as many people now use streaming services to listen to music, but with vinyl on the way up, we but together a list of some of the best albums which Glasgow has produced as chosen by our readers.

An honourable mention goes to the likes of Gerry Rafferty and Paolo Nutini who have produced many fine albums but of course hailed from Paisley just outside of Glasgow and not to forget Aztec Camera's wonderful High Land, Hard Rain which was written about East Kilbride. Fellow EK band the Jesus and Mary Chain also miss out on the list chosen by Glaswegians.

We asked our readers to tell us their favourite Glasgow album, with hundreds of people getting back with these terrific suggestions.
