Which are the best albums from the 70's recorded by artists who started their careers before the emerging of Sgt. Pepper's? I use the famous Beatles album as a reference because I understand that rock music is divided into two eras before and after that record.

My list:

1. Who's Next (The Who)
2. Sticky Fingers (The Rolling Stones)
3. Quadrophenia (The Who)
4. Exile On Main Street (The Rolling Stones)
5. Lola (The Kinks)
6. L.A. Woman (The Doors)
7. Imagine (John Lennon)
8. Band On The Run (Paul McCartney)
9. All Things Must Pass (George Harrison)
10. Morrison Hotel (The Doors)

I'm not wildly sure I could stretch to 10 given your criteria (no Nick Drake!).
That said, I'll name my first two:
The Beatles - 'Let It Be'
Paul McCartney - 'McCartney'.

I used the pre-Sgt. Pepper's criteria because the spirit of this theme is to talk about the post-60's work of artists who essentially belong to the 60's. I think Sgt. Pepper's pretty much defined a new path to follow, and it was the base for lots of new bands that made their career mostly in the 70's; that's why I'm pointing to artists who started from a previous point.

Hi Kevin. I think Pink Floyd is not essentially a 60's band, but their first singles were released before Sgt. Pepper's, so your choice is technically ok.

I know an old brown shoe that will disagree with you there..

I think they had a couple of singles in the charts and an album release before Pepper

Actually Piper was released a couple of months after Pepper, but (the) Pink Floyd certainly published some singles before that Beatles album, so their inclusion is not wrong beyond my opinion.

I think Pink Floyd was two different bands before and after Syd Barrett. My point is that if most of your records and reputation were made during the 70's, then you're not a 60's artist in essence. But that's just my point of view.

Ah, the 60s!  We had groups like The Strawberry Alarm Clock, Vanilla Fudge, Canned Heat, Jefferson Airplane, The Moody Blues, The Electric Prunes, etc.  I remember Steve Allen doing a bit on his show where he had two wheels of fortune; one with assorted adjectives and the other with nouns.  He spun them to invent names for new groups.

Just flashing back.  Carry on...
