Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. 'Sticky Fingers'

Answer: The Rolling Stones

Released in 1971, 'Sticky Fingers' was the first Rolling Stones album to be released on their own label, Rolling Stones Records, earlier albums having been released on the DECCA label. It was also the first album to incorporate the now famous Rolling Stones tongue logo, designed by John Pasche.

The album also officially introduced Mick Taylor as the new replacement guitarist for Brian Jones who had tragically died in July 1969. The album is also notorious for its outrageous album cover, conceived by Andy Warhol and designed by Craig Braun.

It shows a photograph of mans crotch with a working zipper on the fly of the trousers. The album cover was banned in Spain and replaced with a photograph of a can of fingers.
2. 'Harvest'

Answer: Neil Young

Neil Young's country rock album 'Harvest', was released in February 1972 and was his fourth album. His backing band had previously been Crazy Horse but for this new album he dispensed with them and brought together various session musicians which he called The Stray Gators. Crosby, Stills and Nash, with whom Young had recently played and toured and released two albums, also featured on the 'Harvest' album along with Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor. This album was better received by the public than any of his previous albums and reached the number 1 position on The U.S. Billboard 200 Chart, The U.K. Album Chart and the Australian Kent Music Report Albums Chart.
3. 'Tapestry'

Answer: Carole King

Following her divorce from husband and writing partner Gerry Goffin in 1968 Carole King relocated from New York to Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles. It was in Laurel Canyon that she came under the influence of other singer songwriter residents such as Joni Mitchell and James Taylor.
Her first album release 'Writer' made little impact on the Billboard Top 200 but her second solo album 'Tapestry', released in February 1971, hit the ground running and was very successful. The album included three songs which had been co written with Goffin and recorded by other artists previously, including Aretha Franklin, but also included several new self penned songs such as the title track 'Tapestry' and 'You've Got A Friend' the latter of which was a hit single for James Taylor. In 1972 Carol King won four Grammy Awards in respect of the album 'Tapestry' and two for specific songs on the album.
The Photograph of Carole King and a cat on the album sleeve was taken in her Laurel Canyon home and the cat was her pet named Telemachus.
4. 'Every Picture Tells A Story'

Answer: Rod Stewart

The Rod Stewart album 'Every Picture Tells A Story' was released in May 1971 and consists of a selection of songs from varying genres of music.
Rod Stewart is credited as co writer on two songs, 'Every Picture Tells A Story' and 'Maggie May' but given full songwriting credit for 'Mandolin Wind'.
'Reason to Believe.' a Tim Hardin song, was released as a single with 'Maggie May' as the 'B' side, but the song 'Maggie May' became the more popular of the two songs so it is now considered to be the 'A' side or classed as a double 'A' sided single.
The album reached the number 1 position on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, The U.K. album chart, The Australian Kent Music Report and the Canadian RPM Albums Chart.
5. 'Dark Side Of The Moon'

Answer: Pink Floyd

The Pink Floyd album 'Dark Side Of The Moon' was released on 31st March 1973. It was nearly released with the title 'Eclipse' when the band relised that the group Medicine Head had already released an album called 'Dark Side Of The Moon' in 1972. However, as that album had almost disappeared without a trace, Pink Floyd decided to take a chance and retain the title as originally planned.
The album was recorded in two sessions at the Abbey Road Studios in London during 1972 and 1973.
It went straight to number 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Album Charts were it remained for only one week but stayed in the top 200 for over 741 consecutive weeks. In the U.K. it peaked at number 2.
The album won one Grammy award for best Engineered Album of 1973. The engineer for the album was Alan Parsons (of, later, the Alan Parsons Project.)
6. 'Pearl'

Answer: Janis Joplin

The album 'Pearl' by Janis Joplin was posthumously released in January 1971. The albums title 'Pearl' was the name by which she was known to her close friends and associates.
The album followed on from the live 'Festival Express Tour' of Canada and some of the tracks on the album were recordings of live performances during that tour.
On 5th September 1970 Janis Joplin and her then current band 'The Full Tilt Boogie Band' went into the recording studio to finalise the album. However, before the process could be completed Janis Joplin was found dead in a hotel room from an accidental overdose of heroin and intake of alcohol.
The final track laid down by Janis Joplin was the self penned a cappella song 'Mercedes Benz'. The final track on the album 'Buried Alive In The Blues' is an instrumental as Janis Joplin never got to record the lyrics prior to her death.
7. 'Houses Of The Holy'

Answer: Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin released their fifth studio album 'Houses Of The Holy' in March 1973. It was their last release on the Atlantic label, later albums being released on the bands own label 'Swan Song'.
Many of the songs on the album were already familiar to their fans and record buyers as the group had played them live during their concert tours of Europe, Japan and North America during 1972 to 1973.
Led Zeppelin had recorded a song titled 'Houses Of The Holy' which was to be included on the album but this song did not appear until the release of their next album 'Physical Graffiti' in 1975.
'Houses Of The Holy' was the first album By Led Zepplin to include with the full lyrics of all the tracks.
8. 'Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars'

Answer: David Bowie

This concept album by David Bowie was released in June 1972 and is most often just referred to as 'Ziggy Stardust'. On the album cover the words David Bowie and 'Ziggy Stardust' stand out, being in larger letters and in a bright yellow colour which is distinctive from the other words in the title, 'The Rise and Fall' 'and the Spiders from Mars' which are in a dull red colour and smaller font.
Following its release, the album peaked at number 21 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and at number 5 on the U.K. Top 100 album chart.
Singles from the album were 'Starman' released on 14th April 1972 and 'Rock and Roll Suicide' which was released on 6th June 1972. 'Suffragette City' was the B side on the 'Starman' single release but the track was released as a single in its own right in 1976.
9. 'On The Border'

Answer: Eagles

On The Border was released on David Geffen's Asylum label on 22nd March 1974. Originally the record was to be wholly produced by Glyn Johns and recorded at The Olympic Studios in London, England. Due to musical differences between the band and Johns which could not be resolved Johns was fired and the Eagles returned to Los Angeles, where they hired Bill Szymczyk as the new producer. Only two songs were retained from the London recording sessions, 'Best Of My Love' and 'You Never Cry Like a Lover'. The album was the first by the Eagles to be released in Quadraphonic surround sound. Brought in by Bernie Leadon to add a harder guitar edge to some of the songs it was also the first album Don Felder played on. Following completion of the album the Eagles invited him to become a permanent member of the band which he agreed to.
10. 'All Things Must Pass'

Answer: George Harrison

Although having released two solo albums, 'Wonderwall, Music Film Soundtrack' in 1968 and an instrumental album 'Electronic Sound' in 1969, 'All Things Must Pass' was George Harrison's first work following the demise of The Beatles. 'All Things Must Pass' was a triple album, released in November 1970 and produced by George Harrison and Phil Spector at the Abbey Road and Apple recording studios in London.

The music on the album covers a variety of musical genres including: Folk Rock, Hard Rock Country and Western and gospel. Two singles were released from the album, 'My Sweet Lord' released in the U.S. in November 1970 but in January 1971 in the U.K.

It reached number 1 on both sides of the Atlantic. A further single 'What Is Life' was released in the U.S. in early 1971 and peaked at number 10 on the Billboard top 100 chart. 'What is life' had been the B side of the single My Sweet Lord in the U.K.
