    Anybody that has ever been in a semi-tropical location, a tiki bar, or in a nautical location will realize that Jimmy Buffet's Changes in Attitudes, Changes in Lattitudes came out in 1977. While I don't think it ranks up there with many of the other albums listed, Margaritaville made the man and band famous. Parrot heads - Fins up! It is still a fun album to play. I found a copy for $5 at a Goodwill store not to long ago.

    I haven't really actively chosen to listen to Fleetwood Mac, but I haven't liked any (many) of the songs I've heard

    A slightly different list from me but mid/late 1970s was just the greatest period for Afro-funk. Hard to rank across genres so the order is a little random.

    1. Les Ambassadeurs du Motel Vol 1 & 2
    2. The Clash
    3. Orchestre Poly-Rythmo & Betti Betti (ALS 042)
    4. The Ramones – Rocket to Russia
    5. Bob Marley – Exodus
    6. Fela Kuti – Stalemate
    7. Antoine Dougbe (SAT 134)
    8. Television – Marquee Moon
    9. Orchestre Poly-Rythmo – Melome Clement (ALS 037)
    10. Culture – Two Sevens Clash


    You can find a lot of the Ambassadeurs stuff (starring Salif Keita) here and here. The Poly-Rythmo stuff is harder to track down - Betti Betti is here but Antoine Dougbe and Melome Clement only represented by individual songs here and here.

    asking in all seriousness...do people actually like Kraftwork or is these votes more a recognition of their place and vision for electronic music?

    I LOVE Kraftwerk! Love them from when they were a krautrock band (their 1971 Bremen concert bootleg is my favorite live recording by any artist), to their pioneering electronic albums, to even their last studio album in the 2000s.

    ELO - Out of the Blue



    and

    Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
