I like to play albums from 50 years ago on New Years Eve. Picking one for this thread from 1971 is tricky. There is a credible case that it saw more great records released than any other year in music history.
Tonight has seen songs from many old favourites: Sticky Fingers, Aqualung, Led Zeppelin IV, Hunky Dory, What’s Going On, Blue, LA Woman, Who’s Next, Meddle, Tupelo Honey. Masterpieces all.
But I choose this one. Songs of heartbreak, hope, love and strength as beautiful and relevant now as they were then:
Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2021 to all.
