The greateness in music that 1973 was can be summed up pretty much in one album title: Dark Side of The Moon.

Bruce Springsteen – Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ
The Who – Quadrophenia
Elton John – Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Paul McCartney and Wings – Band On The Run.
Stevie Wonder – Innervisions
Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells
Led Zeppelin – Houses of The Holy
Genesis – Selling England By The Pound
Can – Future Days
