3 out of 10; at age 4 in '73, all of this stuff would have been over my head. 😒

8/10. I was eleven in 1973. Didn't know who Iggy Pop was then (and don't care now). Discovered Genesis about ten years later when Invisible Touch came out and I've got quite a few of their albums now. Not sure if I've got Selling England By The Pound, but I recognized the album cover.

And, you forgot The Raspberries "Side 3" LP. Another gem from 1973.

8 out of 10. Should have gotten that last question regarding Genesis. Nice to see Black Sabbath's "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" LP in there. A big departure in sound from them, including some acoustic songs. Fantastic album!!
