1972 was one of the best years for Progressive Art Rock! This year brought with it a lot of musical discovery and variety — heavier British artistic influence, American singer-songwriter ballads and Top 40 Pop standards that featured strong hooks — it was all there! As a mid-teen in 1972, my musical tastes were beginning to take shape as I’m sure yours were, too. It was a blast!
In my opinion, Jethro Tull’s 1972 “Thick As A Brick” was, and still is, the best single produced composition of all-time. With that said, I’d love to know who your favorite artists and bands were from this year, so hit me back!
