Music Albums - Year By Year: 1970
1. The Beatles: Let It Be
last album but still displaying a band evolving creatively. They had many more great
albums in them...
2. Simon & Garfunkel: Bridge
Over Troubled Water
||The peak of a
unique partnership. None of them really reached the same highs after their split-up.
3. Creedence Clearwater
Revival: Cosmo's Factory
is packed with soul and energy and is still totally cool around a pool table today...
4. The Doors: Morrison
||Not their best but certainly one
of the best this year. The American poet strikes again.
5. Paul McCartney:
||McCartney's reaction to tbe split-up of The
Beatles. Contains many typical McCartney songs
6. Eric Clapton: Eric
Grow" sang Clapton and kept his hair very long. These were the days of an unspoiled
Clapton were music was first....and of course drugs and booze.
7. David Bowie: The Man Who
Sold The World
||The young Bowie is slowly
finding himself and laying the groundworks for many legendary albums to come.
8. Joe Cocker: Mad Dogs
||Joe Cocker in his early
days when he was still drinking and smoking more than any scientist would recommend. But
he made some kick-ass music.
9. George Harrison: All
Things Must Pass
||Harrison finally gets a
chance to shine on his own. Songs in the same style as his great late Beatles songs are
found on this album.
10. John Lennon &
Plastic Ono Band: John Lennon & Plastic Ono Band
||Lennon after The Beatles.
I never did understand why he had to go and bring his wife into his music, though. I can't
see what qualities she brought along...
