40 Year Itch : The Top 25 Albums of 1972

So the picture above, from, is probably not a very good representation of my list of fave albums from 1972. My list is based on current enthusiasm and numbers of play over the past year of this "40 Year Itch" experiment.  Click each album title for a link to the original post.

    I'll do one more post featuring a zip file of some of my favorite songs posted this year so if you're new to 1001 Songs, this will be one more chance to get some great tunes. Not sure what I'll be doing in 2013. But with new pressures at work and ever present joys at home,  posting once a day here will not be an option.
