In response to ZILLAGOD's comment:
I'm going to take my best shot ( sorry, just noticed this thread now at 12:57 P.M. on Sat., I don't see posts made after 5:00 P.M. as I only do this during breaks from work).
1. I remember Rick Roberts from a band called Firefall....nice mellow Rock ( I hate the term Softrock) , I have a couple of their CDs , sort of like CSNY meets Bread , not totally unlike Pure Prairie League or Poco ...so, my guess is 'Firefall.'
Firefall it is. Amazing job. This was an offshoot of the Buffalo Springfield discussion.
2. I want to say the Magical Mystery Tour album. I seem to remember a poster, but I am not entirely sure if it had one , or if it was the 1st to have one.
See Mr Mojo's response.
3. I don't recall a guy named John Foley York ( seems to me I would remember a name like that), but I know for sure that Furay, Palmer, Young, Stills and Messina were the band, I also don;t remember Fieder. My educated guess is that it is York.
Once again, you're right on the money. Amazing. This was NOT easy! (again, offshoot of that discussion I mentioned)
4. I'll bet I'm wrong on this one. But, I wonder if it is Some Girls. That LP had a lot of airplay, it was a very popular LP, it had some really good songs on it, it was a "comeback" album of sorts for the band, and it had a Disco song on it ( one of the few Disco songs I actually can stand, 'Miss You' ...sort of the Stones answer to Disco...."look guys we can do this too, but we choose not todo it very often." My favorite Stones LP is Let It Bleed...but I doubt it was the top seller...though it should be. Hope you are not including GREATEST HITS LPs, in that case I will change my choice to HOT ROCKS VOL.1, if you are strictly talking regular releases, I am going to stick with SOME GIRLS. - How's that for a lengthy , wishy-washy, unsure answer?
I said "album" with no restrictions on "studio", so I have to hand it to you again with HOT ROCKS.
5. I have a Dvid Bowie CD that is an EP with his earliest songs called '1966.' I think this is his earliest recording ( although not really what you would call Rock), I also do not think it was actually an ALBUM. An album released in 1967 ( which I also own on CD) was simply titled 'David Bowie' ( not the only album with this title ...originally , the 1969 album that had Space Oddity had it's title changed to Space Oddity and I believe it was also released as 'Unwashed and Somewhat Slighty Dazed' at one time). So the answer, I believe is 'David Bowie' ...the 1967 LP.
This was there for the taking for you, as Bowie fan (and Matty would no doubt know this one, too). It's self-titled, so yeah, you got this one, too.
Please tell me I got at least one right.
Are you kidding me? You're too humble. You got 4 out of 5. Brilliant job.
