Top 10 Albums of 1979 with John Beaudin (Part Two)

#5 – Like Peter Frampton did in the beginning of 1976 it was a live album that broke Cheap Trick to a massive audience. “At Budokan” was recorded on April 28 and 30, 1978 in front of a Beatlemania-esque 12,000 screaming Japanese fans.

Cheap Trick were inducted into the 2016 class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, February 1979. #4 – Billy Joel had a few false-starts in the early 70’s. His debut album, “Cold Spring Harbor” stalled at #128 on the album charts. “The Piano Man,” his Columbia Records debut, came in strong with it’s autobiographical title tune but the next two “Streetlife Serenade” and “Turnstiles” were flat in comparison but then came “The Stranger” with four hits including his signature, “Just the way You Are.” In 1979 Joel continued to trend even higher with his first #1 album, “52nd Street” like it’s predecessor every track became well known – hit or not. The biggest tunes on the radio were, “My Life,” “Big Shot,” “Honesty,” and “Until the Night.”...
