Which countries have the most entries?
There are 38 nationalities represented in the list. Allowing for albums with multiple nationalities, there are 1065 national entries.
No surprises with the USA and UK at the top of the list - 521 entries (49%) and 400 entries (38%) respectively. Then things get interesting.
Canada in third (24 entries) makes sense - but surprising they didn't get more entries, with Joni Mitchell, k.d.lang, Leonard Cohen, Rush and The Band.
Australia punches above its weight in fourth position (15 entries) - with a big push along from Nick Cave. Australia shares credit for a number of artists including AC/DC, Crowded House, RHCP (Flea is an Aussie) and The Bee Gees.
Germany (14) is the highest non-Anglophone country in fifth. Kraftwerk and Can lead the charge.
Then come Ireland (12), Brazil (10), France (10), Jamaica (6) and Nigeria (5).
