I should definitely check out more 70s stuff from other genres other than hard rock and progressive rock. I do really like funk as well but there's tons of stuff from your list I haven't heard. Really like it! We have 14 in common

Great 70's chart. I like your number one. That Richard and Linda Thompson album is a really good one. Good diversity in your chart and some top picks.

Great 70`s chart that is very 80`s!
I mean you picked a lot bands that are typical 80`s bands for me with their early (late 70`s) albums.
That`s Ok. I didn`t grew up in the 70`s, so I see the 70`s from the 80`s point of view!

Good Chart - all important albums included.Nice to see "War". That`s a fantastic band - The albums with Eric Burden are incredibly powerful and fantastic.
I don`t understand that they are so underrated on BEA.
