There have been quite a few games about best albums or best songs, but I don't recall any games about the best side on vinyl. I guess we have all experienced great sides on vinyl where the album as a whole was not great. Also, I'm sure there are great albums, where each side is perhaps outshone by a side from a lesser album. So, the best side on vinyl may differ from what may be the best album.
It could be fun to find out what is considered the best side on vinyl among the users on this forum.
The albums considered must be released in the period 1965 - 1980. Only official studio albums are allowed and no compilations. If an album, like Tubular Bells, only contains one composition, one can still choose side 1 or side 2 of that album. In cases where UK and US releases differ, the UK release is used.
From now on and until Saturday at midnight Amazon time there will be a nomination process. Each participant can nominate ONE side from each band or artist of their own choosing.
The rules of voting are inspired by the recent Dylan game and will be as follows. There will be three positive votes given to three different candidates. The first twenty candidates to reach 10 points will move on to a final round.
