25 Years Later: Was 1993 The Greatest Year In Music? (NPR Music)

We had several watershed debuts, a handful of hip-hop classics, and alt-rock was still having its moment. Hear the playlist.

I'd take '77/78 over any of the other years mentioned in the article.  Heatwave, Earth, Wind & Fire, Parliament/Funkadelic...the spring of '78 was pretty powerful, as was the fall....Heatwave followed up "Boogie Nights" with "Grooveline."  Earth, Wind and Fire was still hittin' it with "All 'n All," then dropped a greatest hits album that had the newly released, "Got To Get You Into My Life."  Commodores may have been the hottest group out there;  with Rick James, the Jacksons, and Prince, who debuted "Soft and Wet." 

I remember these like it was yesterday...and I grooved to them during the spring of '78 (freshman year at Morehouse) as well as the fall...good times!! :nod:
