Your Top 5 albums of the 1970's


Recommended Posts

My music listening tendencies tend to jump all around decades and genres every few months, and since February or so I've been in full 60's/70's mode. Just wondering what your five favorite albums of the decade are.

I think mine would be something like...

1. Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon (1973)

2. Bruce Springsteen - The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle (1973)

3. David Bowie - Station to Station (1976)

4. The Clash - London Calling (1979)

5. Van Morrison - Moondance (1970)

Not a very unique list, I suppose. Curious to see some other lists.

I was going to pick just one Bowie record, but fuck it, I probably could have justified picking five. Resisted picking Exile because I usually prefer Sticky Fingers.

All five of these were under consideration for my fifth spot. If I made another list tomorrow, it's entirely possible I'd prefer Harvest, Sticky Fingers, and Ziggy Stardust to Moondance and London Calling.

This was actually so much harder than I thought it would be so I'll stick with the first five that came to mind.

Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street

Sex Pistols - Nevermind The Bollocks

Tom Waits - Heart of Saturday Night

The Doors - L.A Woman

AC/DC - Highway To Hell

And that's missing out 70s Aerosmith, Dylan, Ramones, PiL, Patti Smith, Fleetwood Mac. And Raw Power. I could pick a bunch of different lists thinking about it.

Raw Power - The Stooges

L.A.M.F - Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers

New York Dolls - New York Dolls

The Ramones - The Ramones

Thats top five out of guitar based whiteboy music :lol: although bollocks would top greatest of all time list, regardless of anything.
