I thought ELO "Out Of the Blue" came out in 1978.

How about...
England "Garden Shed"

I'll go with...
Jethro Tull "Songs From the Wood"
Scorpions "Taken By Force"


Tie between the first Clash album and the first Elvis Costello album.

But if you'd asked me in 1977, when I was 8, I would have said Kiss.

I don't think I could choose between The Clash, Never Mind the Bollocks, My Aim Is True, Spiral Scratch and Talking Heads -77.

Also, is the first album by The Damned, Damned, Damned, Damned on that list somewhere? Ditto for Television's masterpiece Marquee Moon?

Lots of classic rock classics...Rumours, Aja, Livin' on the Faultline and Steve Winwood stand out for me, but there are lots more.

I guess you can tell I'm older that you other guys.

Animals, Street Survivors, Aja, and Terrapin Station are tops on that list for me.

77 is a bit harder year to pick an album then 78 IMO

My votes goes for Animals, A Farewell to Kings, Even in the Quietest Moments, Talking Heads 77.

Beck/Hammer Live meant the world to me - not a great record on the whole, but Jeff plays amazing and his sounds are insane!

Best record is Rumors, of course. :)
