You have to choose and name ONE album that means the most to you from the year 1978... !!
No contest......also in my Top 10 ever !!
Used to be a toss between Olivia's Totally Hot and Spingsteen's Darkness at the Edge of Town but now I would probably go for Easter.
Cheap Trick at Budokan
Street Legal by Bob Dylan.
The Cars - S/T
I would chose this as well but you beat me to it. Certainly don't feel like I settled with Cheap Trick's epic live LP though
Too close to call between these three...
Elvis Costello: This Year’s Model
Blondie: Parallel Lines
Nick Lowe: Pure Pop for Now People
Easy...Darkness..in my top 5 of any year.
Rocketing from the tombs came this glorious din of an album, synthesizer squall soundscapes bouncing through songs that went sideways. With enough rhythm and guitar motion to remind you that it was rock'n'roll. All with that pent up spew coming from Mr. David Crocus Behemoth Thomas. RIP Peter Laughner. This was/is brilliant.
Atlanta Rhythm Section - Champagne Jam
Jeff Wayne - Jeff Wayne's Musical version of the War of the Worlds
Ry Cooder - Jazz
Journey - Infinity
Parallel Lines - no question.
Bob Marley & the Wailers - Kaya
Okay, in order to not be considered a blatant rule-breaker, I will name just one. Eventually.
the Rolling Stones-Some Girls
EC & the Attractions-This Years Model
Nick Lowe-Pure Pop/Jesus of Cool
Pat Travers Band-Heat in the Street
Many other great albums to consider as well...
Radio Birdman - Radios Appear (Overseas Version)
The Dictators - Bloodbrothers
Bruce Springsteen - Darkness On The Edge Of Town
AC/DC - Powerage
There already are threads about more albums a year I discoveted today, so this is for jüst THE One...
This Year's Model - Elvis Costello
Darkness on the Edge of Town
