Over the last ten years or so I've increasingly been drawn to conclude that 1973 was a cracking year for music, and much underrated by the establishment. Here's why (and of course many of these artists released whole albums full of their best works):
  • David Bowie – Life on Mars
  • Elton John – Crocodile Rock
  • Roberta Flack - Killing Me Softly With His Song
  • Carly Simon - You're So Vain
  • Bobby "Boris" Pickett – Monster Mash 
  • Wings – Live and Let Die 
  • Stevie Wonder – Superstition
  • Lou Reed - Walk On The Wild Side
  • Paul Simon – Kodachrome 
  • Eric Weissburg & Steve Mandell - Duelling Banjos
  • Doobie Brothers – Long Train Running 
  • Stealers Wheel – Stuck In The Middle With You
  • Money – Pink Floyd
  • Alice Cooper – No More Mr Nice Guy 
  • The Who - Quadrophenia

It seems that I'm not the only one to think this mind you, with plenty of posts in forums out there arguing the same point. 1977 and 1971 are also very popular years from the 1970s. I should point out that I wasn't even born in those years, so I'm not simply harking back to my formative years!
