Damn, what a great year! Pretty much every one of those albums is a classic!

Some of my favorite underground rock albums came out in 72 as well, such as Mendoza's self-titled record, Babe Ruth's "First Base", and Shinki Chen's solo album

Don't know about those others, but that Babe Ruth album is fantastic.
