Rock Berth & His Rocking Men, The Yellow Dynamites - Same album
If the LPs on our list of 1970's Best Rock Albums seem like an end, rather than a beginning, that's because it was. The '70s would need another few years to kick into gear. So yeah, the calendar may have turned to "1970," but 1970's Best Rock Albums were still stuck in the '60s. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Rock 'n' roll would just have to wait a year or two for the next step in its evolution.
78. The Soft Cavalry.

Titled in tribute to the early-Seventies German proggers of the same name, Blackwater Park marked the first time these Swedish death-metal virtuosos gave full reign to the progressive tendencies that had long lurked in their music.
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was his seventh album in four years and contained 17 songs, with John writing the music for virtually all of them in just three days (For his part, Bernie Taupin took just two and half weeks to write the lyrics). This was Elton at his rocking, rollocking best, with a host of classic singles, including Candle In The Wind, Bennie & The Jets, the title track and the ultimate hedonistic rock and roll track, Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting; it was to become his best-selling album, and rightly so. Key Track:Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting. An album with an interesting genesis, it was mostly recorded live at San Francisco's Boarding House and during a tour, with half the record being acoustic, and half electric. Arguably Young's greatest album, his beautiful melodies and lyrical brilliance shine out through all the album's nine tracks. Key Track:Powderfinger. AC/DC - Back In Black.
