Nevertheless A very impressive list which I know takes good time to make out :cheers2

The one thing that really impresses me the most is that you actually have such a wide knowledge of albums for a particular year. Not just a decade, but a YEAR. That in itself is a marvel of sorts.

Great list. Lots of names I don't recognize. I'll take that as a challenge to fill my brain with something new. :D

Thanx for the nice words everyone.:grinthumb

The late 60's/early 70's is definitly my fav era for music. As the late 70's come around my lists will be shorter. I was a big on collecting rare Canandian rock of the 70's as well. That is obvious with bands like A Foot In Coldwater, Thudermug, Charlee and others that will be on future lists.

I know it's been a while since someone posted here but I had to congratulate you on your list. Captain Beyond (Captain Beyond) in position no. 3! Yes. I would've put in no. 1 but yes... our tastes are in agreement.
