Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Music #9


Each week I feature 10 groovy albums that have appeared on the Billboard 200 (aka Top LPs) chart during the last 50+ years. You can vote for your three favorites, and the five with the most votes move on to the following week when five new albums will be added to the list.

Last week the Carpenters claimed the top spot with their 1971 album, Carpenters, which received 25 votes out of the 149 cast. And this week they will be challenged by Liza Minnelli, Olivia Newton-John and the Partridge Family.

1) Carpenters/Carpenters (Last Week #4, Week 6) - #7 the week of November 13, 1971



2) People/Barbra Streisand (W2) - #1 the week of November 14, 1964



3) Live and More/Donna Summer (LW #1, W3) - #2 the week of November 18, 1978



4) Faith/George Michael (LW #3, W3) - #8 the week of November 12, 1988



5) Grease soundtrack (LW #2, W8) - #5 the week of November 18, 1978



6) Herb Alpert Presents Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66 (DEBUT) - #14 the week of November 12, 1966



7) The Partridge Family Album (DEBUT) - #16 the week of November 14, 1970



8) Liza with a "Z"/Liza Minnelli (DEBUT) - #20 the week of November 18, 1972



9) Physical/Olivia Newton-John (DEBUT) - #13 the week of November 14, 1981



10) Colour by Numbers/Culture Club (DEBUT) - #20 the week of November 12, 1983

A relatively easy decision this week. Karen & Richard are (of course) a no-brainer. To round out the list I chose Barbra and George. Have a really groovy week, Marc!

You have a groovy week, too, Lance! Thanks for voting!

Maybe you should do an ALL-OLIVIA post! Have Come On Over, Physical, Don't Stop Believin', Totally Hot, Gaia, The Rumour, Soul Kiss, Have You Never Been Mellow, Grace and Gratitude, Making a Good Thing Better, and Clearly Love all battle it out...

Hey, Christopher, that's an interesting idea - and I do love Olivia - but I try to mix things up with a variety of music each week. However, I will definitely be featuring more of her albums in the future!
