Best 8-Tracks of 1977

Saturday night during Those Were the Days, I will pay tribute to the best albums of 1977.  In that era vinyl records and 8-track tapes were still the biggest selling champions at the record stores.  Cassette tapes were making a big push.  The biggest year for 8-track tapes was 1978 and just a year later cassettes ruled.  During our Those Were the Days radio show Saturday night between six and midnight, we will fill up your fake alligator 8-track tape case with the best albums of 1977.  I will play tracks from my top 20 faves of that year that will include :  Rumours-Fleetwood Mac,  Aja-Steely Dan,  Slowhand-Eric Clapton,  Book of Dreams-Steve Miller Band,  News of the World-Queen,  The Grand Illusion-Styx,  Foreigner-Foreigner,  and The Stranger-Billy Joel.

It will also be an honor to pay tribute to Otis Redding this Saturday night. He and members of his backup band, the Bar-Kays were killed in a plane crash in Madison December 10th of 1967.  He has always been a favorite of mine with his incredible range and energy.  Hear a few 'Otis' classics during the 2nd half of Those Were the Days.  I will not be taking your requests this week.  Please save those for next Saturday night.  Have a great weekend with your radio.

Phil
