    Everything in the top 40, I didn't get into music from the 50's, 60's and 70's til much later.

    But there was alot of good stuff in the charts back then, it was so diverse, compared to the top 40 of today.

    This is the decade when I've started my real magic journey into the ocean of music.
    What a rich time! Hundreds of classics were released in those years. This was the peak of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock and these terms were sacred for us.

    To begin with, Deep Purple and their family - Whitesnake and Rainbow were huge. These were gods for us.

    Then Judas Priest and Accept blew our minds respectively with their albums Defenders of the Faith and Balls to the Wall. Followed by Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Twisted Sister...

    The three double live albums: "Priest... Live!" by JP, "Live After Death" by IM and "World Wide Live" by Scorps were at the head of this wave. Everybody has played them on those cassette players over and over again.

    Of course, during the decade, around the above group of names, AC/DC and Pink Floyd were also always there.

    I also remember how in 1984, one of my suppliers said "...hey, here is some new young band playing a new style - Speed Metal..." and we've heard Motorbreath from Kill 'Em All, so Metallica joined the feast.

    In the mid 80's, the same supplier introduced to me a cassette with the live album "Real to Reel" by Marillion and I've immediately felt in love with this band. I've played this cassette thousands of times.

    Many more bands supported those years too. Among them Saxon, Manowar, Ozzy, Motörhead...

    Here are some of the most popular albums in my circles, released in the 80's:

    Defenders of the Faith - Judas Priest
    Priest... Live! - Judas Priest
    Balls to the Wall - Accept
    Metal Heart - Accept
    Saints & Sinners - Whitesnake
    Slide It In - Whitesnake
    Live After Death - Iron Maiden
    World Wide Live - Scorpions
    Real to Reel - Marillion
    Clutching at Straws - Marillion
    Back in Black - AC/DC
    British Steel - Judas Priest
    Blackout - Scorpions
    Love at First Sting - Scorpions
    You Can't Stop Rock 'n' Roll - Twisted Sister
    Stay Hungry - Twisted Sister
    Difficult to Cure - Rainbow
    Bent Out of Shape - Rainbow
    Pyromania - Def Leppard
    Hysteria - Def Leppard
    Holy Diver - Dio
    Theatre of Pain - Mötley Crüe
    Rising Force - Yngwie Malmsteen
    Blizzard of Ozz - Ozzy Osbourne
    Kill 'Em All - Metallica
    Crusader - Saxon

    I've also often played in those years four particular albums of the 70's:
    On Stage - Rainbow
    The Wall - Pink Floyd
    Stained Class - Judas Priest
    Sabotage - Black Sabbath
