Since you didn't specify that they had to be released the year I was 16 and only asked for what we were into at that age ...

1. Black Sabbath - Paranoid
2. Rainbow - Rising
3. Deep Purple ~ In Rock
4. Uriah Heep ~ Live
5. Pink Floyd ~ Animals

With a slew of honorable mentions like
Budgie, Judas Priest, Yes , Rush, Queen etc.

The question needs some clarification. Do you mean five albums released in the year that I turned 16, the year after, or from any year before?

I would just say "you top 5 favorite albums that were released in the year you were 16". So, if you were born in June and three of your favorite albums came out 2-3 months before your birthday, it is still from the same year. I wouldn't overthink this, but take it however you like

Just listed these, and some others, in a different thread - just happened to be when i was 16:

Pink Floyd - The Wall
Rainbow - Down to Earth
UFO - Strangers in the Night
Tom Petty - Damn the Torpedoes
Queen - Live Killers
Bad Co. - Desolation Angels
Scorpions - Lovedrive
Boomtown Rats - Fine Art of Surfacing
R.E.O. Speedwagon - Nine Lives
Rickie Lee Jones - Eponymous
[ABBA - Greatest Hits II]

I know! - ten - it was a good year! - there are plenty of others that could've been mentioned. Am I totally biased when i suggest that it was one of the best years in terms of rock record releases....?

If you dig Beefheart..then Zappa is there too. Zoot Allures was up there on my wants list and mowed a few lawns to scrape up the £3.49p to buy it.

Frank Zappa - Disco Boy.

One of two Led Zeppelin releases this year..sticking it's elbows out against 10cc, David Bowie and Queen.
