Wow! What a stunning list of albums at the top of the charts back then. Can you name the artists?

I've mentioned the TV show "Classic Albums" before, and they just showed this one on "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" and I am absolutely stunned at the top twenty albums at the time. I'm going to list the albums and see who can name the artists. No cheating.

1Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
2) Goat's Head Soup
3) Brothers & Sisters
4) Quadrophenia
5) Los Cochinos
6) The Smoker you Drink the Player You Get
7) Angel Clare
8) Don't Mess Around With Jim
9) Life & Times
10 Let's Get It On
11) The Joker
12) Innerversions
13) 3 + 3
14) Jonathan Livingston Seagull
15) Ringo
16) We're An American Band
17) Deliver the World
18) Killing Me Softly
19) American Graffiti
20) The Dark Side of the Moon

I know #1, #2 (I think), #4, #8, #11, can almost remember #16, #18, & of course I know #20.

Edit: I did know #2. Googled just to check.

Got eleven, but American Graffiti doesn't have an "artist" per se.

Honestly, while some of those albums are all time greats, a few should be buried by the sands of time.eye twitch smiley

I'd probably be correct on 10 or 11 of them.

I got 13 correct with just a quick glance. I'm pretty sure I know most of the rest if I think about it awhile.

It was damn easy for me, but I was a teen in high School during the early 70's and we took our music seriously! driving smiley

Got lucky on that one. My Dad and I were just talking about him the other day. Hint: TV Land.

EDIT: Whoops! Never mind! Wrong decade! Make that 12 right at first glance. cursing smiley

You know, I never knew he had a self titled album out, even back then. grinning smiley

Edit: I had Dark Side back then on 8-track and album and it was the very first CD I bought when CD's first came out. I still have the album and the CD; the 8-track bit the dust long ago. I think I may have also purchased it on cassette at some point, so no one from the RIAA better say I don't have the right to play any of the songs, any way I damn well please. grinning smiley

What is criteria for being top twenty? somebody's favorites? copies sold? times played on AM radio? FM radio? regional/national/international?

1) Is that Diana's gay friend with all those weird glasses?
2) Sticky Mick's Sticky Fingers subsequent sequel
3) Sharing Cher's one time not so Sonny wares
4) CSI: The Precursor
5) The Stash with Nash and their special guest
6) gotta do some more barnstorming to come up w/ something appropriate for this one
7) Simon says, "do it alone, and try not to get caught"
8) I feel like I'm encroaching on Newt's musings...
9) and encroaching even more here.
10) My dad's killing me over this one.
11) After losing the blues.
12) If he could see you now.
13) Oh, crap, who invited the little brothers to the party?
14) A diamond not so rough that the soundtrack album made more than its movie.
15) Not exactly Pete's best work IYKWIM
16) A funkalicious railroad ride through a steep sided gorge carved by the Colorado River
17) What is it good for?
18) Somebody's gonna catch some flack over this one.
19) Who was the blonde in the T-Bird?
20) Pepto Fitz running the marathon long before hitting mile twenty.

The A's win the world series, after another NY team beats another California team for the pro hoops crown, while Flipper retains the pigskin title. I had forgotten how memorable the last year of college was as UCLA and Coach Wooden won a seventh straight NCAA basketball crown. Thanks for the blast from the past Mr. T.



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

Ah, number 20. Saw it performed live, in Beantown, before the album was released. Second half of a nice long concert. Ever see "Careful With That Axe, Eugene" live? Them were the days...

I only know the obvious ones. Where is Houses of the Holy though? Also released in 1973.
