Top 10 Tuesday of Groovy (Holiday) Music #14


Each week I feature 10 groovy albums that have appeared on the Billboard 200 (aka Top LPs) chart during the last 50+ years. You can vote for your three favorites, and the five with the most votes move on to the following week when five new albums will be added to the list.

Last week the Carpenters claimed the top spot with their 1973 album, The Singles: 1969-1973, which received 29 votes out of the 157 cast. And this week they will be challenged by five holiday albums that appeared on Billboard's Christmas LP's chart.

PLEASE NOTE: The next new Top 10 will be on Tuesday, January 7.

1) The Singles: 1969–1973/Carpenters (Week 2) - #6 the week of December 22, 1973



2) The Broadway Album/Barbra Streisand (LW #1, W3) - #5 the week of December 21, 1985



3) On the Radio: Greatest Hits Volumes I & II/Donna Summer (LW #2, W4) - #2 the week of December 22, 1979

My inner Christmas Queen was squealing with delight at this selection of groovy music! One automatic vote went to Karen & Richard (obviously), but the other two votes went to Barbra's Christmas album (which I own on disc) and Andy Williams!

Happy Christmas Marc (& Michael)!
