Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy Music #5

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 23 votes out of the 132 cast. And this week they will be challenged by Linda Ronstadt, Barbra Streisand and the Go-Go's.

1) Carpenters/Carpenters (Week 2) - #5 the week of October 16, 1971

2) Grease soundtrack (LW #1, W4) - #1 the week of October 21, 1978

3) Private Dancer/Tina Turner (LW #4, W3) - #3 the week of October 20, 1984

4) Rumours/Fleetwood Mac (LW #3, W5) - #1 the week of October 15, 1977

Geez a really tough week! A list that contains all music and albums that I really like makes it a real challenge to decide between them.

Barbra vs. Linda vs. Tina!
Mamas & Papas vs. Karen & Richard! The Supremes vs Fleetwood Mac!

Good heavens it was a dilemma but I ended up with Fleetwood Mac because ever song on that album is a gem. Linda Ronstadt, although this isn't one of my favorite of her albums she was always game to try new things and this was a departure for her and The Carpenters because well...they're The Carpenters and I have a soft spot for them.

Apologies to all the greats that I couldn't favor with a vote this week.

Thanks for sharing your selections, Joel! Hopefully next week will be less tough... or maybe not.
