As you were growing up, what LP albums did EVERYONE seem to have?

I'm talking Pre-Cassette/CD/MP3 crowd, and what YOU or YOUR FRIENDS had--not what Billboard said were the most popular (although they may be one and the same)

1.) Kiss Alive II
2.) Fleetwood Mac Rumours
3.) Eagles Hotel California
4.) Foreigner 4
5.) AC/DC Back in Black
6.) Michael Jackson Thriller

Take out Kiss, and move Thriller to #1, and you've got my list.

I see some posters have reading comprehension issues as to the specifics of the OP.

The LP's I remember everyone having was Carol King's 'Tapestry' and the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. Even though I was a kid in the 70s, I still looked through other people's LP collections whenever I had the opportunity.

The first music I ever personally bought was the Car's 'Heartbeat City', but by that time LPs were on the way out, cassettes were the thing, and CD's were on the horizon.
