Some Of DJ Fred’s Favorite Albums Of The 70s [SURVEY]

Capitol Records image

It’s the 40th anniversary of the Steve Miller Band’s landmark album “The Joker” and the band has recently been playing every song from the album live in concert!

Now, Miller has released “The Joker Live” and it’s on iTunes and Amazon for you to download!  The Steve Miller Band will be touring this year with Journey!

The Joker was released in 1974 and my favorite album by Journey, “Evolution” was released in 1979.

This got me thinkin’ of some of my favorite albums of the 1970s!  Below are some of mine! Of course there were great albums by Bob Seger, Queen, The Cars, Van Halen, The Allmans and  The Doobies…like I said, the following are just a few!

What’s yours?  Let me know in the COMMENTS section below or on the I-95 FACEBOOK PAGE, and I may please a few songs for you today during “A Whole Lotta Lunch!”

On The Border

The Eagles
 
 

Of course I had heard all of the Eagles pop songs on the radio but I didn't think that they were cool until I saw them perform "Already Gone" at the California Jam. In 1974, On The Border was the third album released by America's band.  It also included "Best Of My Love", the song that was playing in the background when I proposed to my wife.  Well now ain't that sweet?!

Second Helping

Lynyrd Skynyrd
 
 

Another album released in 1974, which must have been the year that I started to get into album rock and roll, and of course it was all downhill from there.  We all remember the first time that we heard "Sweet Home Alabama", those distinctive cords, and pretty much the beginning of southern rock for us all!

House Of The Holy

Led Zeppelin
 
 

The fifth album by the world's most mysterious and melodic heavy metal band!  I thought that Jimmy Page was god  as I pounded away on that old beat up acoustic guitar to every song on the album.  I didn't think it could get any better.  Couple up listening to that music while living in the woods on the coast of Maine....that was some pretty heavy s***.

Fly Like An Eagle

Steve Miller Band
 
 

"The Joker" may have made a star out of Steve Miller and his Band, but playing "Fly Like An Eagle" on the eight track player in my Dodge Super Bee is what got me the girls.  God bless him.  That spacey sound and those songs bring back a lot of memories.  Somebody bring me a tissue.

Evolution

Journey
 
 

How could you not love Steve Perry's voice the very first time that you heard the bluesy sound of "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'?"  It was the beginning of all of Journey's success and made new found fans all go out and buy their first album. Please once again, the girls loved it too!
