Tuesday Tunes – 4 Great Albums (70’s)

My sister came to visit us last week, and happened to be introduced to my blog during her stay. One of her first questions when I described to her what the blog was all about was “so where are the music posts?”. I’ve decided to work ‘Tuesday Tunes’ into the general post programming, so hopefully there are some music fans out there that will enjoy these, and participate in the suggestion type posts that I plan to include in the future. I was struggling to think of post ideas to start up with, so big thanks to my friend Caitlin who helped me break down the concept of ‘great album’ type posts and give me the suggestion to separate them into time periods. The first era that I’m focusing on is one of my favourites – the 1970’s. It was a bit of a struggle for me to stop at just 4 albums, but I think it’s a pretty concise list of awesome.

As you can probably tell by my selection, my preference for 70’s music is more towards the rock side of things (hard rock, country rock, progressive rock etc.) than the other music styles that were popular at the time (disco, R&B, new wave etc.). Are you a fan of 70’s music? If so, do you have any suggestions for me as to some great 70’s albums or bands? Speak up!

    Agree with all albums. Huge fan of 70’s music and I didn’t even know it till I was looking at my music collection. I was surprised at how much of it was 70’s. I’m probably exposing myself as a giant nerd with my choices but here goes…
    AC/DC -Highway to Hell
    The Bee Gees -Spirits having flown & Main course
    Cat Stevens -Father and son
    Aerosmith-toys in the attic
    Fleetwood Mac – (self titled)
    Bob Dylan-hmm hard to choose one
    Billy Joel- Piano man
    Bob Marley-Exodus

  2. I’m a child of the nineties. The only 70’s music I’m familiar with are Bob Marley, Billy Joel, Aerosmith, and the Bee Gees. My heart lies with Nirvana, Radiohead, Pink, etc etc. I hated going to gym class because they always had N’Sync on but on the rare days Nirvana was on, that was my day.

    Excellent……love your work! Although shocked not to see Bob Dylan…hibda hibda..I was also going to mention War of the Worlds but then remembered it was originally a radio show in the 1930′s I think…still Dad loved that album. Lastly, (and at the risk of being left out of the will)…what about ABBA, come on surely you know all the words, or is that only me hehe. Looking forward to seeing your 80′s selection but more importantly the 90′s best decade of music ever!

    • omg @ war of the worlds… “the chances of anything coming from mars were a million to one they said… but still they coooooome”

      I’m never going to get that out of my head!

  4. Harvest, one of my favorite records.
