Top 100 Music Albums of the 1970s by ERadio (2018)

« View previous chartView next chart »

Along with the Beatles, many of these albums shaped my youngest musical opinions. Actually, #19, #23, and #35 are some of the first records I put on a turntable...Thanks, Dad!
The 50 or so AOR albums fairly represent my early musical interests, while the Punk, Post-Punk and more offbeat stuff is more in line with current frame of mind. The 70's had some great music, didn't it? Cheers.
