It was bound to happen, sooner or later.

We even sent our requests for combining threads at the same time!   Grin

Are you guys going to keep going to 1979? Or will it be 1969 next?

Oh, we'll keep going.  1977 turned everything around!

I'll move mine here so the other thread can be deleted.

1. Mike Oldfield – Ommadawn
2. Bob Dylan – Blood on the Tracks
3. Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Zuma
4. The Who – The Who by Numbers
5. Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here
6. Richard & Linda Thompson – Pour Down Like Silver
7. John Fogerty – John Fogerty
8. Roy Harper – HQ
9. Lou Reed – Coney Island Baby
10. Burning Spear – Marcus Garvey
11. Richard & Linda Thompson – Hokey Pokey
12. Funkadelic – Let’s Take It to the Stage
13. Status Quo – On the Level
14. Patti Smith - Horses
15. Parliament – Mothership Connection
16. Fairport Convention – Rising for the Moon
17. Thin Lizzy – Fighting
18. John Martyn – Sunday’s Child
19. Wings – Venus and Mars
20. 10cc – The Original Soundtrack

It's starting to be difficult by this point.  The embarrassment of riches from the years 1970-1973 has become slim pickings.  There are some records at the bottom of this list that I struggle to even remember.  Having said that, it's a very strong top 6.

17. Thin Lizzy – Fighting


One of my favourite Lizzy albums.

I'll add Nils Lofgren's debut, Queen's A Night At The Opera and George Harrison's Extra Texture.

I started buying albums in 75 including Trouble by Sailor.

With a few notable exceptions, I'm very much on Col D's wavelength.  Which is probably why we've bumped into each other at various gigs....  Smiley
