Enter The Dragon released in 1973? Man, that makes me feel old!

I'm with Toast on Billion Dollar Babies - brilliant album.

1973 also saw the first Queen album, Aladdin Sane and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.

However, it's also the 25th anniversary of 1988, in my mind the SHITEST year for pop music ever. Bros, Jason Donovan and Stock Aitken & Watermen anyone?

Toast said...

Yes Thumper Sabbath Bloody Sabbath is a brilliant album and still stands up today and Queen's 1st album is sadly often overlooked.

1988 a shite year for pop? Most years are but there are always a few good tunes that chart. Not Jason Donovan of course!

Loving your comment Thumper!

My high point album anniversaries would be

1983 - Piece of Mind, Iron Maiden

1993 - Bloody Kisses, Type O Negative

Thumper said...

VK, Piece of Mind is a great call, I think that's my favourite Maiden album with Bruce.

1983 also saw Holy Diver, which may have been the last great "classic heavy metal" album.

Come to think of it, 1983 was a pivotal year, as it was when we saw the first thrash albums from Metallica, Celtic Frost and the rest. Warhead by Venom too. Things were changing.

Steve - the film itself has never aged a day, except maybe Mr Braithwaite!

John - Happy New Year to you, oh yeah The Sweet - fit for remembering any year!!

Toast/VK/Thumper - first rate contributions, Maiden's Piece of Mind undoubtedly my favourite IM outing!

Holy Diver - oh yeah !
'83 was kind to my ears

And Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, as I've always said 1973 was a good year, a very good year!
