5/10. To be fair, in ‘74, I was mostly into r&b only. Just began to broaden my musical horizons.

9/10. Prior knowledge, lucky guesses & process of elimination.

I didn't listen to many records and the radio in 1974. Watched a lot of tv shows on CBS and ABC mostly on Friday nights.

5/10. Never heard of most of them and I was a teenager in 1974.
How is that possible?

3/10. As a kid I mainly got the 45s so I usually never knew the name of the album.

Oof! 3/10. The only one that I didn't have to guess was Gordon Lightfoot. I really like his music and I still listen to The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald several times a year. ... If they would have had Queen II, Diamond Dogs (David Bowie) and I'm sure some others I don't realize are from 1974 I would have done better.

9/10! and comments! [2] DUH! they couldn't think of another name! [3] That's the big song on the album! [4]That was Clapton's house in Miami! [5] This was sorta Olivia's "Yesterday And Today"! She was too nice to butcher dolls..LOL! [7] I think this was also the last numbered album! Bonus Question:What was their original name and why did they change it? [8] I had this on vinyl!
I won't spoil it for anyone else who wants to answer your Bonus Question, but I thought I knew it and after looking it up, I was right. I feel like since I had to look it up to make sure I wasn't wrong I also can't take total credit, but I heard that on some show, probably Behind the Music or somehting like it.
Wasn't it Chicago Transit Authority? Never knew the reason why they had to change it.
It was because the real CTA was going to sue them!

Lived and worked in Miami, and have driven past that house numerous times. (It's on a major street).
Yep! It was Chicago Transit Authority and I see that cperrynaples already mentioned the reason why.
Chicago Transit Authority 🎸
Great Band
