What was happening in music?
- Doobie Brothers - What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits - The Doobies were my favorite band in the mid 70's, and this was the album on which I discovered them..
- Lou Reed - Rock and Roll Animal. This was my introduction to Lou Reed (and Velvet Underground music). I don't think I actually discovered this until a couple of years later, though.
Only 2 songs made #1 on the Top 40 during 2/1974:
- The Way We Were - Barbara Streisand (2/2/74, 2/16/74 and 2/23/74)
