A veritable "best of" collection unto itself, Led Zeppelin's fourth album in three years contains such musical pillars as "Black Dog", "Going to California","When the Levee Breaks", "Rock and Roll", and one more whose title escapes me.

Pink Floyd- Meddle 50th Anniversary 10-25

October 971's album "Meddle"  by Pink Floyd  is certainly not the most famous of their Seventies output, but nevertheless it is a formative album for icons "Dark Side of the Moon", "Wish You Were Here", "Animals", and "The Wall, which makes "Meddle"  one of Progressive Rock's most important releases fifty years ago.
