12. Blue Oyster Cult - Agents of Fortune  '76
4.   Jetho Tull - Aqualung  '71

2.   Boston - Boston  '76

Delta Region:

1.   The Who - Who's Next  '71

8.   Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road  '73

12. Blue Oyster Cult - Agents of Fortune  '76 
4.   Jetho Tull - Aqualung  '71
Arrrgh... very tough matchup. Aqualung was in my original 10. Who
knew a BOC album would make it this far though? This is almost impossible, but I'll stick by my Top 10 choice. A most unfortunate bracketing for me.


3.   Kiss - Alive  '75
11. Bob Seger - Night Moves  '76

7.   The Cars - The Cars  '78
2.   The Eagles - Hotel California  '76

Charlie Region:

1.   Fleetwood Mac - Rumours  '77
8.   Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy  '73

5.   Allman Brothers - Eat a Peach  '72 
4.   Allman Brothers - At Fillmore East  '71-
What the quack? ABB vs ABB?  I cannot in good conscience vote against either of these extrodinary albums. I will be writing a very strong letter of disapproval to the selection commitee about this!  This blows like Derek Trucks gettin taken out by Duane Allman in the Sweet 16 of Greatest Guitarists blog! Booooooooooo!  No justice! = No peach!


3.   Pink Floyd - Wish you were here  '75
6.   Black Sabbath - Paranoid  '70

10. Cheap Trick - Live at Budokah  '79
2.   Rush - 2112  '76
