Ranking Records—The 10 Best LPs of 1974

Here’s a look at my favorite records of 1974 which was yet another fabulous year in music. In addition to a “top ten” there are also five additional fab records from that year that I just had to mention. One thing to note is that I didn’t discover my top three discs from 1974 until a few years later, so you will also get to see what my fave 1974 LP was that I actually listened to in 1974.
