Best albums of the 1970's

J. Norburn
The list author says: "These are my favourite albums of the 1970's. I'm not a fan of Bob Dylan so his albums are not shown here. I do like the Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and the Clash. If you're wondering about London Calling, it's on the cusp between the 70s and 80s and frankly the eighties need all the help they can get, so I included it in my list of the best albums of that decade."
Exile On Main Street [Limited Edition]

"The Cars went on to even greater commerical success with MTV friendly 80s pop, but (in my humble opinion) this is the only album they put out that is worth owning. Standout tracks: My Best Friend's Girlfriend, Just What I Needed"
Crime Of The Century (Remastered)

"I've never understood why this album has never received much critical aclaim.  Granted, it can't hold a candle to Dark Side of the Moon, but still, this was a great concept album and deserves at least some kudos. Standout track: Rudy"
