Watergate, Roe v. Wade, the OPEC oil embargo—the world was changing in 1973, and the year proved pivotal in pop music, starting with Dick Clark's first-ever New Year's Rockin' Eve. Following up 1965: The Most Revolutionary Year in Music and books on the Beatles' solo careers, here Andrew Grant Jackson takes us back to the year Bruce Springsteen released his first two albums, future punk mecca CBGB opened in New York City, hip hop was born at a party with DJ Kool Herc, and a dance craze dubbed "disco" was reported in Rolling Stone. Jackson spins landmark albums from David Bowie, Pink Floyd, War, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell, Bob Marley, and many others.
