  • 1977 - Rumours, Animals, Aja & Never Mind The Bollocks

    This was not a strong year for me and may be the one of the weakest of the 70's era album lists. Still, it produced some classic albums.

    My haul that year:
    Top 10 - 4
    Top 25 - 10
    Top 50 - 18
    Dynavector DV20x2L MC cartridge - Genesis G7.1f speakers - Marantz Reference PM-KI-Pearl Int. Amp. - Oracle Audio Paris MkV turntable - Various Morrow & Valab/King cables

        All I can remember is being bombarded by The Bee Gees,😣.

          I like their music (and other disco songs from that era) more now than I did then.

        Is it just me or were the three best albums of '77 after Rumours, # 30, 41 and 64?

          There's no doubt that #41, I Robot, was my favourite album of 1977.

        Tough year for good music, IMHO

          Was a good year for summer concerts that year in NYC at the Garden. Saw Fleetwood Mac doing most of their hits from Rumours, Pink Floyd doing Animals, ELP and Bob Dylan. Could afford tickets back then too!

            I can imagine it was an exciting time. There was a lot of affordable good shows at that time. ESPECIALLY in NYC.

            I saw Pink Floyd at Olympic Stadium in Montreal during that IN THE FLESH tour in 1977. This was their last stop before heading back home and the one whereby RW spat on an audience member.

          I have 19 out of the top 20 on vinyl. 37 of the top 100. not bad considering I had only started high school and not buying records in 1977
