  • The 70's #1 selling album by year!

    A little more diverse than the sixties list, which was dominated by The Beatles and Bob Dylan.

    1970 - Neil Young - After The Gold Rush
    1971 - Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV
    1972 - David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars.
    1973 - Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
    1974 - Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
    1975 - Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
    1976 - Stevie Wonder - Songs In The Key Of Life
    1977 - Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
    1978 - Bruce Springsteen - Darkness On The Edge Of Town
    1979 - The Clash - London Calling

    I suspect many, if not most of us, have all of these in one format or another.

    I bet I haven't listened to Springsteens Darkness in 30 years and I have a nice half speed of it.

      I know you guys are into albums, but as a music lover, the top 10 singles from each year tells me much more about what was going on musically.

      yeah, but I always bought and played albums, not singles or songs.

        Me, too, but it was the songs I heard on the radio that made me buy the albums. I still only buy albums.

        yeah, in the 60's, I got most of my music from top 40's radio which was AM and all singles. But by the 70's I switched to FM radio which was much more album oriented.
