The availability of music on Spotify is up to the artists and their music label.
If the music is unavailable, the artist or their music label has likely decided to not make it available in Spotify.
Sometimes the music is only available in certain countries, while access is blocked to others.
Sometimes the album or song will be unavailable temporary, and come back again later. Hopefully it will come back later.
Contacting the artist is a good way to let them know you miss those albums in Spotify.

Def Leppard's dispute with their old label, which still holds the rights to their classic albums, is legendary. The label wants to release them for download and streaming, but Def Leppard will not allow them to do so without renegotiated terms, and the label refuses to budge on the terms from contracts signed in the 1970s.
They have re-recorded three songs (Pour Some Sugar on Me, Hysteria, and Rock of Ages--not, curiously, the number-one Love Bites) and attempted to come as close to the original as possible. The entire Hysteria album is available in a live performance from Las Vegas (Viva! Hysteria) which is actually very good, considering it was done in 2013, more than 25 years after the album's release. There is another live album that includes good live versions of the hits from both Hysteria and Pyromania, among others.
The originals cannot even be purchased other than in CD form, not from iTunes or anywhere. This is not likely to change unless the label is willing to renegotiate with the band. Joe Elliot had claimed they were going to do more re-recordings (starting with Love Bites), but that hasn't happened as they have been putting most of their energy into touring. Hope this helps.
