I'm seeing a lot of the same usual names but how about...

Ram Jam-"Ram Jam", besides the radio friendly Blalck Betty, the rest of the album is kick ass b4 they faded into one-hit wonderdom

Anything from Sweet...glam power pop

Big Star...come one name one

Noone put any T-Rex..."Electric Warrior" anyone

Neil Young was also quite prolific in the '70's :)

Bands mostly related with the 60's=CCR-"Cosmo's Factory", Sly and the Family Stone-"There's a Riot Going On" were '70s albums
