I would be hard pushed to pick any year from 70 to 76.

So many classic albums artists and bands to choose from.

Impossible to pick a single year but '73 does have a few corkers.

'85 had some decent albums - Brothers in Arms, Songs From The Big Chair, Hounds Of Love, Power Windows, Love, Night Time, Secret Wish etc.
