Ran across a headline that reminded us/me that we have just gone through a music time warp.
As 2019 turned into 2020 and a new decade ..it also became 50 years since 1969 became 1970.
Here’s a list of artists and albums who made the transition from one decade to another. FIFTY FREAKING YEARS AGO.
And they didn’t just transition – they became #1 albums that changed lives and made history.
The biggest was The Beatles Abbey Road – #1 for 11 straight weeks
Led Zeppelin 2 – #1 for 6 weeks
Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge over troubled water 10 weeks at #1
Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young – Deja Vu #1 for a week
CCR – Cosmo’s Factory – Their 4th #1 album. In a Row
Santana – Abraxas was #1 for 6 weeks
Paul McCartney had a #1 solo album for 3 weeks
And The Beatles had Let it Be at #1 for 4 weeks.
It was an amazing time in music.
The Stew will be saluting and playing all those albums and more Saturday 5-7.
