1973 OMAs: Album of the Year

1973 OMAs: Album of the Year

1973 One Man Academy
Album of the Year

Rule Zero

"If zero albums are up to OMA standards in a given year, none of the albums get an award that year."
OMA Rules of the Road

Okay, but what was sort of decent?
Based on my memory of listening to it years ago, I believe The Concert for Bangladesh is worth a listen, if you can find it.

If you only listen to one song:

"Medley: Jumpin' Jack Flash/Young Blood" from The Concert For Bangladesh, Leon Russell

I seriously don't want to spend any time talking about these albums. I've been dreading it for weeks.

The 1973 nominees for Album of the Year

  • American Pie, Don McLean
  • The Concert for Bangladesh, George Harrison & Friends[1]
  • Jesus Christ Superstar (Original Broadway Cast Recording), Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

The current One Man Academy (OMA) project is listening to the Grammy's Album of the Year nominees and re-choosing winners, absent of historical context.
