As we celebrate the 50th (Yikes!) anniversary of The Beatles this year, we should also celebrate albums that came out in years with "4" at the end.

In this regard, 1974 was a truly banner year for prog. Among many other albums, here is just a short list:

Here Come the Warm Jets
Mirage
Rush
Apostrophe
Starless & Bible Black
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Sheet Music
Power and the Glory
Welcome Back My Friends
Crime of the Century
Eldorado
Sheer Heart Attack
The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway
Relayer
Hamburger Concerto
Red Queen to Gryphon Three
Remember the Future

Wow! A 40-year anniversary for all of those amazing albums!

1984 gave us Fugazi. 1994 gave us Brave and Awake. 2004 gave us Marbles, Human Equation, and Dark Matter.

So raise a glass to all of these well-deserved anniversaries!

1974: A great year for Prog!

Oh, snap! How did I miss that!?

Must've assumed it was there, because that's THE 1974 album. LOL

Glad you caught that. Clap

Meet the Residents came out in 1974 too (and it's amazing for me to see it emerge in the context of the other titles listed above).

The damage that we do just goes on and on and on but not long enough.

APP was released in '73. Agree it's a masterpiece though.

The 60th anniversary of The Beatles?
Confused
 
Ignoring their Cavern era, and their Hamburg era...
The Beatles had their first chart hit in October 1962, it was released three days before I was born.
One year later, and they were sufficiently successful for the term "Beatlemania" to appear in The Daily Mirror.
 
1964 is the 50th anniversary of The Beatles playing in the USA, but the USA isn't everything.

Gong's You anyone?
I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

As a jazz-rock fanatic, I must add "Apocalypse" by the Mahavishnu Orchestra; "Where Have I Known You Before" by Return To Forever; and Stanley Clarke's self-titled album!  

I'd like to add "Blow by Blow" by Jeff Beck, but it was recorded in 1974 and released in 1975!  Amazing work that was!

All:

Thanks for the wonderful comments and many additions, most of which I did know about, but would have made my article WAY too long! LOL. Here is the article as published on Culture Catch.

Peace!

Stool Man:

Re The Beatles, even if we accept that they were "doing things" prior to 1964, it is unlikely that it would be a 60th anniversary, since they would have been children in 1954. Indeed, John did not even form his first skiffle group until 1957, when he was 16.

Peace.

You missed my point entirely, I'm not talking about 1954.  If there's a fiftieth anniversary of The Beatles then it was October 2012, the fiftieth anniversary of their first hit.  They had several Number One hits in 1963, and Beatlemania existed then too, so what's 1964 the fiftieth anniversary of?
