Elite 8: Best Rock Album of the 70's

ClevelandRocks! -- Nice work! 

 The Commissioner of the Blog is The Decider.  Bud Selig would have called it a tie. 

I'm looking forward to "The Frantic February Final Four" Best Rock Album of the 70's play-offs!

Thanks, abez2.

Elite 8: Best Rock Album of the 70's

Here are the results and I must say three of the #1 had no problem, while the other made it by the skin of it's teeth. I told you peeps that I really, really hate ties and this one was a killer as "Rumours" & "Wish you were here" were dead even. I hate to have to choose. I have the most respect for Pink Floyd but as they already have "Dark side" and I didn't want to have both pitted against each other and that "Rumours" is like one of my fav's....so had to give it to Fleetwood Mac.
