Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. 1967. Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club

Answer: Band

"Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band" was Number one for 15 weeks on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart in 1967.
The Beatles' Paul McCartney and tour manger were discussing the upcoming album on a plane late in 1966. Mr McCartney was keen to develop an alter ego for the band for their next record. Roger Cormier, on the 50th anniversary of the record in 2017, wrote that the album name came from the salt and pepper packets that came with aeroplane meals - "Salt" became "Sgt". According to Cormier, Mr McCartney then added the "Lonely Hearts Club Band" "because why would a Lonely Hearts Club have a band?".

The music on the album was influenced by the Beach Boys' "Pet Sounds" album which is ironic as that album was inspired by the Beatles' "Revolver" album. There have been claims that the high frequency dog whistle heard at the end of the remastered CD version of "A Day In the Life" is a tribute to "Pet Sounds".
2. 1979 In the Out Door

Answer: Through

Led Zeppelin, along with The Beatles and the Rolling Stones, are arguably the most influential bands in the Classic Rock Era.
The eighth and final studio album by Led Zeppelin "In Through the Out Door" was released in 1979 where it spent seven weeks at number one.
This album was made after the band had a hiatus because of the death of Robert Plant's son Karac. In various interviews all the band members agreed it was a struggle but the album was made in three weeks (with three extra tracks recorded - which made it onto 1982 rarities album "Coda"). The critical reviews were mixed, from "Best album since 'Houses of the Holy'" to those who did not like the "synth sound".
One of the album's features was the packaging in a brown paper bag. Band manager Peter Grant was quoted as saying "We could put the album in a brown paper bag, and it would ... sell". The record company didn't like it but a compromise was reached. The packaging underneath was one of six different coloured formats with identical photography. The art work was nominated for a Grammy for "Best Album Package".
3. 1972. Chicago

Answer: V

In 1972 Chicago released its fourth studio album "V" (There was no "IV" but there was a live album between "iii" and "V). It spent nine weeks at number one on the Billboard 200 Album Chart and also the Billboard Jazz chart. The album went gold within weeks of release and eventually earned double platinum status in 1986.

The single "Saturday in the Park" was the group's biggest hit so far reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100. Chicago formed in 1967 in, well, Chicago of course and were initially known as the Chicago Transit Authority.

They described themselves as a "rock and roll band with horns" initially but the band's greatest success came when they adopted a softer sound later in their career, (Cue "If You Leave Me Now" in 1976).
4. 1975 Octopus

Answer: Red

"Red Octopus" was the second album for Jefferson Starship and reached the Billboard 200 Album chart number one position for four weeks in 1975 but these were not consecutive. Notable for the single "Miracles" which went to number three on the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks, making it their biggest hit until "We Built This City" appeared ten years later. Jefferson Starship evolved out of the very successful Jefferson Airplane.

While the group was on a hiatus in 1970, guitarist Paul Kantner recorded a concept album "Blows Against the Empire" with some members of Jefferson Airplane and others.

It was released as "Paul Kantner & Jefferson Starship". This caused bassist Jack Casady and guitarist Jorma Kaukonen to leave Jefferson Airplane and so Jefferson Starship was formed.

This group went through many different line-ups but by 2008, there were no original members left.
5. 1976 Frampton Alive!

Answer: Comes

Peter Frampton had a remarkable career: He was a respected guitarist in Humble Pie, went solo in 1971 and had four commercially unsuccessful albums then came the behemoth in 1976: "Frampton Comes Alive!" It took twelve weeks to reach number one on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and had a total of ten weeks there, non-consecutively between April and October 1976.

This was not just a live album but a double live album yet it sold 11 million copies and was the bestselling album of 1976. It was still on the chart 97 weeks later at the end of 1977, the following year. Rolling Stone Magazine Reader's Poll voted it "Album of the Year".

It spawned three singles, all of which reached the Billboard Hot 100, and the most successful of the three, "Show Me The Way" featured Mr Frampton incorporating a talk-box into the song. And then despite the single (but not the album) of next year's "I'm in You" going platinum, no subsequent release came anywhere near the dizzy heights of 1976.
6. 1981 Tattoo

Answer: You

In August 1981 the Rolling Stones released their 16th studio album, "Tattoo You" where it stayed at number one on the Billboard 200 from late September to November.
The album was a commercial and critical success racking up four million sales in the US and contained the number two Hot 100 hit, "Start Me Up". Despite this, this album was a series of outtakes from other albums. "Rolling Stone" (the magazine that is) ranked the album at number 34 on the list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1980s. Peter Corriston won a Grammy Award for "Tattoo You" in the category of best album package.
7. 1968. Time: The Rascals' Greatest Hits

Answer: Peace

The Young Rascals were a New Jersey rock band, formed in 1966, that became The Rascals in 1968. They had nine Billboard Hot 100 hit singles, including the three number ones: "Good Lovin'" (1966), "Groovin'" (1967), and "People Got to Be Free" (1968). After four successful albums, their compilation album, "Time Peace: The Rascals' Greatest Hits" reached number one on the Billboard 200 album chart in September 1968.

It was their biggest selling album and the only one of theirs to be certified gold.

Their subsequent single "People Got To Be Free" was a quest for racial tolerance following the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King. They practised what they preached (They refused to play on segregated bills). They disbanded in 1972, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997 and reformed briefly in 2012-3.
8. 1969 Faith

Answer: Blind

Following the demise of super-group Cream in 1969 and the temporary hiatus of Traffic, Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood formed a group that would be a true blues rock band. Ginger Baker from Cream invited himself into the group (it was only nine weeks since Cream disbanded) and Rich Grech, the bassist for Family, left Family to complete the group. The group played their first gig as a free concert in Hyde Park in London to an audience estimated at 100 000 people.

They then toured Scandinavia as a rehearsal process for a subsequent American tour where they had to supplement their original repertoire (which lasted less than an hour) with Traffic and Cream songs which the crowds loved.

The recorded their one and only album, "Blind Faith", before they toured America.

There were only six tracks and one, "Well All Right" was a Buddy Holly song. Nevertheless the album made number one in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia, The album title actually gave the group its name. There were no singles released from the album.

They disbanded when they returned to the UK after being together only four months.
9. 1982 Fool

Answer: American

Johnny Cougar, John Cougar, and John Cougar Mellencamp were all names John Mellencamp used before using his real name in the latter part of his career. Mellencamp had four prior albums to "American Fool" and despite having a number one hit single with "I Need a Lover" in Australia none of these albums were considered commercial successes.

This album was his breakthrough album with three hit singles, "Hurts So Good" going to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and the second, "Jack and Diane" reaching number two.

The album itself went to number one on the Billboard 200 Album chart and stayed there for nine weeks. It was the biggest selling album of 1982. His brand of rock is unique. Called Heartland Rock by the musical press, it encompasses traditional instrumentation yet is far from Country and Western.

His subject matter has been stories from the Mid-West and the struggle of the working man. Typically he was the founder of Farm Aid in 1985. Mellencamp was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in, 2008 and in 2018, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
10. 1974 Bad

Answer: Company

Bad Company were an English super-group made up of singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke from Free, Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs and bassist Boz Burrell from King Crimson. They were the first act to be signed to Led Zeppelin's "Swan Song" label (as they shared the same manager).

Their style was harder rock that favoured airplay on both Adult Contemporary and College radio stations. Their first three albums reached top five on both sides of the Atlantic. Their debut album, with an eponymous name, reached number one on the Billboard 200 Album chart for one week in September 1974.

The two singles "Can't Get Enough" reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and "Movin' On" reached number 19.
