This is an absolutely great seventies chart! Lots of surprises among classics such as Rumours and Marquee Moon. So much here to enjoy and explore.

I was wondering when The Dead would creep up in your charts:). I know you're still working on the 70s, so I will keep checking back to see where you are. Love your picks.
