Albums that have influenced my life from the early 70’s and onward

This is an ongoing list of the albums that influenced my life from when I got my first 2 albums Sgt.Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Piano Man for my birthday. There is no particular order to them except for 1 and 2. As I remember more albums I will add them. Most of the albums listed here were heard on vinyl and now reside in the basement of my house in many crates and boxes and occasionally get brought up to the living room to be listened to.
