ROCK AND/OR ROLL 074 - TOP TEN: 1974


Since this is episode number seventy-four BJ decided to take a look at his own personal top ten favorite albums that were released in the corresponding year of 1974.

  1. One possible list from me...

    01: Natty Dread - Bob Marley & The Wailers
    02: Radio City - Big Star
    03: Too Much Too Soon - New York Dolls
    04: Phenomenon - UFO
    05: Sheer Heart Attack - Queen
    06: Grievous Angel - Gram Parsons
    07: Apostrophe - Frank Zappa
    08: The Psychomodo - Cockney Rebel
    09: The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway - Genesis
    10: Meet The Residents - The Residents

    And was tempted to put first Rush album, Bowie's "Diamond Dogs", and Scorpions "Fly to the Rainbow" as well.

  2. Love this episode and this music! A lot of it I don't know. Any changlce to get an episode recap with the tunes (not part of your top 10) and sources? I now have a urge to discover the music of Slade and Mott the Hoople. Thanks!

    1. I think all of the songs are from the top ten albums except I play Rock Bottom by UFO from Phenomenon at beginning, first song is Calvary Cross from I Want To See the Bright Lights Tonight, I played Flick of the Wrist by Queen and At Home At Work At Play by Sparks as interstitials from Sheer Heart Attack and Propaganda.

  3. Thanks. As soon as I typed that message, I realized that you named all the songs...but I just need to listen again to this episode again. So, as soon as I finished this episode, I headed over to Amazon Prime Music...and found a lot of Slade. Started listening to Old New Borrowed and Blue. I have no idea how I've missed this band up until now. Heck, I'd even forgotten that they were the original band that sang "Come on feel the noise" but I am very pleased to have listened to this episode and found a new band. Not coincidentally, after Pods and Sods did their Best Albums of the 70s tournament, I decided to listen to a lot of those *albums*. I know the hit songs but now I'm listening to the albums that spawned them. And I'm having a blast. Happiest surprise to date: entire Band on the Run album. And now Slade. It's gonna be a great summer.

    For me, a die-hard Chicago fan, 1974 saw the release of their last double-LP, Chicago VII, with LP 1 consisting of mostly instrumentals and one of my favorite scripted solos by Terry Kath.

    BTW, great podcast you got here. I've known you via Podkisst but now am going through y'all's collection.

    1. Yes I envy you getting to dig into Slade for the first time, you should check episode number three which was about Glam Rock, lots of Slade on there plus other similar great music
