I liked mostly the teenybopper side of music then because I was a kid in those days.

There are a lot of artists that I know and admire that did stuff in 70s but I haven't really listened to the whole albums.
The standouts as albums for me are 'The Rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust' and 'Low' from David Bowie. And 'Unknown Pleasures' from Joy Division.
The list would be longer if it was single songs from that era because for example I love the song 'London Calling' from The Clash and 'Another Brick in the wall part 2' from Pink Floyd but we are not. I also have to give David Bowie another honorary mention for somehow making the 10 minute masterpiece 'Station to Station' while high on drugs.
Yeah, I'm completely fine with and understand not doing single songs.
I have trouble narrowing down favourite songs and sorting that out in a list for my favourite bands that I listen to on a weekly basis, even if the band only has 4 or 5 albums, so it would be hypocritical of me to expect someone else to do that sort of thread because I sure can't.
