288. Bad Company – Ready for Love - 9

1974 was a key year for me (I was 18 that year). So, faves from that year almost always touch me more than most others.

My 1358th all-time favorite.
I think my #1358 is still a 9. Either that or a high 8.
I'm a bit more constrained with my 8-10 ratings:

My 10's only go down to my 128th favorite.
My 9's end at my 350th favorite.
