Top Five Albums of the 70s

Rob Wall gives me special dispensation to forgo the 80s and to insert a more appropriate decade.

In no particular order..


London Calling - The Clash (1979)

The Wall - Pink Floyd (1979)

After the Goldrush - Neil Young (1970)

Boston - Boston (1976)

Let It Be - The Beatles (1970)



I could easily have picked another 5.


Rumours - Fleetwood Mac (1977)

Quadrophenia - The Who (1973)

Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen (1975)

Bat Out Of Hell - Meat Loaf (1977)

At Budokan - Cheap Trick (1978)


What, 5 more?


2112 - Rush (1976)

Never Mind the Bollocks - Sex Pistols (1977)

Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd (1973)

IV - Led Zepplin (1971)

Parallel Lines - Blondie (1978)



Kinda puts those 80s lists to shame, mhm?

  2. Can't help but notice how many of those artists are British. Pause while I show some national pride.

  4. In no particular order, mine would be:

    Eric Clapton's Rainbow Concert
    Rod Stewart - Never a Dull Moment
    Howlin' Wolf - London Sessions (the recent CD release, with additional tracks is great)
    Nazareth - Razamanaz
    Elton John - Yellow Brick Road

    But they might be different tomorrow! :-)
