    I know it's not specified but I guess I'll define early 70's as 1971-75. Here goes (in no particular order):

    1. Jethro Tull - Aqualung
    2. Genesis - Foxtrot
    3. Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon
    4. The Who - Quadrophenia
    5. Jethro Tull - A Passion Play
    6. Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
    7. Elton John - Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy
    8. Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
    9. Kansas - Song For America
    10. Peter Hammill - Chameleon In The Shadow Of The Night

    In no particular order. I've focused on Hard Rock groups and limited each group to one album:

    Bang - s/t
    Budgie - Bandolier
    Buffalo - Volcanic Rock
    Dust - Hard Attack
    Groundhogs - Split
    Night Sun - Mornin'
    Scorpions - Lonesome Crow
    Three Man Army - A Third of a Lifetime
    T2 - It Will All Work Out in Boomland
    Ursa Major - s/t

    (of course any Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath, Who, Wishbone Ash and even Aerosmith during the period 70-75 could replace anyone of these)

    You're right RK.....could even go to top 40 and more. The 70's were an amazing time for rock music. If I was asked, I would say the best decade for music.

    I was quite thrilled when I heard about Ripper Owens joining Judas Priest. Sadly, I was very disappointed with the albums he was on. I felt that they didn't let him express his true talent.

    Same here I really like Rippers vocals but didn't like the direction the music took on those albums and they were kind of a let down...hopefully he'll surface with a new kick ass band of his own soon...with some big name players...don't know if Beyond Fear still exists.

    Beyond Fear was a pretty good band.

    I would like to see Ripper team up with Michael Harris to create a band that plays 70's inspired metal.....slightly psychadelic with a prog edge. :kickass:

    One of my very favorite bands ; great album along with their Self-titled & On Earth As It Is In Heaven. Their latter albums went to crap (imo) & what a logo!
