While Sir Elton was sitting on top of the music charts, Marc Bolan’s T-Rex, Cheech and Chong, Simon and Garfunkel, Neil Diamond and Rod Stewart were some of the other best-selling music artists during the 1970s.

Then there was Carole King, Janis Joplin, the Chi-Lites and  Al Green. No doubt, music was diverse and rich with style. The charts proved it.
