40 Year Itch: Top 40 Albums of 1973

My list of fave 1973 albums is a good mixture of records I've loved all my life and some I've discovered just this year. Yes, all year, while most people were paying attention to Miley and Beyonce, I listened almost exclusively to the music of 1973. Next year I'll be scratching the 40 year itch by listening and reviewing the records and events of 1974. Hope you'll join me.
