Here it is peeps. I had appox. 180 albums nominated for the 64 spots. 100 of the entries were nominated once, hence they were eliminated. Of the remaining 80 there were 35 that were nominated twice so, to avoid some sort of vote off and to keep my personal opinion at bay, I just did them in alphabetical order and what was left didn't get in. Oh and remember two albums that didn't make it because of their release dates were The Wall & London Calling...they qualify for the 80's.

I'm going to put the first round in two different post West & East, just cuz of the size

Alpha Region:

1   Led Zeppelin - IV  '71
16 ZZ Top - Fandango  '75

8   Rolling Stones - Exile on Main Street  '72
9   The Who - Quadrophenia  '73

5   Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic  '75
12 David Bowie - Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars  '72

4   AC/DC - Highway to Hell  '79
13 Paul McCartney - Band on the Run  '73

3   Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti  '75
14 Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs  '74

6   Styx - Grand Illusion  '77
11 Montrose - Montrose  '73

7   Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers  '71
10 Foreigner - Foreigner  '77

2   Boston - Boston  '76
15 Kiss - Destroyer  '76 

Delta Region:

1   The Who - Who's Next  '71
16 The Doors - LA Woman  '71

8   Van Morrison - Moondance  '70
9   Led Zeppelin - II  '69

5   Peter Frampton - Frampton Comes Alive  '76
12 Bad Company - Bad Company  '74

4   Deep Purple - Machinehead  '72
13 Supertramp - Breakfast in America  '79

3   Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run  '75
14 CSN & Y - Deja Vu  '70

6   Lynyrd Skynyrd - Pronounced  '73
11 Aerosmith - Rocks  '76

7   Journey - Evolution  '79
