The Best Albums Celebrating Anniversaries in February 2021

There are a few things that will make you feel old. Realizing that Back to the Future: Part II happened five years ago, we’re now closer to 2050 than we are to 1980, and kids born in 2000 can legally drink in the U.S. this year.

Oh, and finding out that a beloved anniversary is celebrating an anniversary of its release date. Below is a list of the best music releases with a milestone anniversary coming up in February 2021.

We’ve broken up the albums by year. For example, records released in 1971 will be turning 50 years old in February.

The year 1981 is arguably the most popular because it boasts three of the top five most-collected releases celebrating an anniversary. The No. 1 most-collected is Carole King’s Tapestry (meaning it appears in the most Discogs users’ Collections) but Daft Punk’s Discovery is the most-wanted (it’s on the most users’ Wantlists).

You’ll notice that the list below resembles a chart. That’s because we’ve also determined how “desirable” each release is by pulling the Wantlist and Collection quantity and using that data to create a want/have ratio. Following this math, 2Pac’s All Eyez on Me, which is turning 35 years old, is the most desirable album celebrating an anniversary in February 2021.
