Best early 70s Rock

A Listmania! list by Brian J. Greene "djbrian" (Durham, NC)
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "People often talk about the popular music that came out in the 1970s as if it were a total washout. You think of sappy singer-songwriters, Disco, bad post Prog-Rock noodlers . . . But there was a lot of great music that came out in that decade. The Punk/New Wave movement that emerged towards the end of the decade was enough to make up for a lot of the schlock that preceded it. But what I'm going to write about here is some excellent music that came out in the 70s prior to the Punk stuff - the great albums that were released in the first part of the decade."
