The 10 Best Albums Of The 1970's

I was watching a video of Traffic's "Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys" and one of the comments said it was the best album of the 70's. I was pretty sure that was overstated but I thought what are the best albums of the 70's?

I checked out five Best of lists and narrowed it down to twenty-five. Then it got tough. One rule is only one album per band.

I had to leave off albums by George Harrison, Carole King, Neil Young and David Bowie. Plus a Best of list without Springsteen, Dylan, Simon & Gar and CSN&Y...blasphemy.

Well...you have to draw the line somewhere. Here's my Top 10. I'm sure you'll have suggestions so comments are more than welcome, as always.

    Last June I hit the magic age of 60. Almost immediately I found myself not feeling as well as usual. Go figure, I mean, I am 60 years old, whether I want to admit it or not!! But then strange symptoms started to occur. A friend, who is a doctor, told me to get checked out....Voila...Parkinsons. That's what this is all about. Living every day with this. Personal info... I'm 60 divorced with 2 daughters in their early 20's live in the city...lakeview area...grew up in the north burbs. Lived in So. California for 13 years...may go back...I hear winters are warm there!! :-)
