1975: The Greatest Year in Rock?

A talking point in honour of my third anniversary of blogging. Can any year beat 1975’s embarrassment of rock riches? Interesting to note that 1975 was the last year in which British rock’s ‘big four’ (Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Uriah Heep) all delivered studio albums. How many of the following exquisite list do you own? If you know of any other cracking rock releases from ’75 that should be on the list, please let me know in the comments.

Aerosmith: Toys in the Attic

Bad Company: Straight Shooter

Jeff Beck: Blow by Blow

Black Sabbath: Sabotage

Tommy Bolin: Teaser

Deep Purple: Come Taste the Band

Rory Gallagher: Against the Grain

Hawkwind: Warrior on the Edge of Time

Journey: ST

Kansas: Song for America

Kansas: Masque

Kiss: Dressed to Kill

Led Zeppelin: Physical Graffiti

Lynyrd Skynyrd: Nuthin’ Fancy

Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here

Queen: A Night at the Opera

Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow: ST

Rush: Caress of Steel

Styx: Equinox

Thin Lizzy: Fighting

UFO: Force It

Uriah Heep: Return to Fantasy

The Who: By Numbers

Take the change out of that!

    It was a great year for rock. That list brings back a lot of memories of ’75. ’76 & ’77 were pretty good too.

    1980 was a monster year
