    okay...no net researching allowed, just take a guess:
    What artist or group sold the most records during the 1970s ?
    I saw this on a biography and at first didnt believe it, and who knows, maybe its not true but I'll defer that debate until later...

    It certainly must be the most IMPORTANT band of the 1970's, Led Zeppelin. Don't tell me I'm wrong now! [​IMG]

    Now I dont know how official these claims are, but I have read and heard that The Carpenters sold the most records during the 1970s which may come as a shock to many people.

    Actually do enjoy a lot of The Carpenters music, but even I was surprised at how popular they were at the time. Read somewhere they had the most gold records during the 70s so figured they were a pretty good guess to your question.

    actually thee was a great tribute record to the carpenters
    Shohen Knife doing On top of the World in Broken english was worth the price alone

    It may have been Japan that tipped the scales. They had great success in the US, but incredible demand in Japan during the 70's. They even released a live album there.

    I was gonna guess Elton John. When I was growing up, you couldn't go 10 minutes without him playing on the radio.
