Fleetwood Mac-Rumours
The Stranger-Billy Joel
What's Going On?-Marvin Gaye
the Elton John albums NSW mentioned.
Transit Authority, Chicago II-XI-Chicago

Normally, I'd suggest all The Beatles, The Doors (which you already have), The Rolling Stones, The Who, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, etc...

Here's another artist I like a large number of songs by but don't have even a single album! Actually just yesterday I heard Ballad of Billy the kid on the radio and was thinking what a great song, I should get some of his albums.

It's such a vast era of music full of rapidly changing genres, you can't really expect to get all the classic albums just in a snap.

But for me, other than a few already mentioned here, I think you need Forever Changes by Love the most.

If you're going to go that route, get it right:

Ho' face slutbag = me. Fuck.

I have pretty much all the hits. But like I said I'm not a super huge fan although I do like his music.

Musical taste is so individual ultimately, when I think of the '60s, I think of all those great Beatles albums you mentioned, but I also think of people like the Byrds, Gram Parsons, etc: for me anyway, Gram Parsons is essential.

Yes, I absolutely would. And the Kinks as well, that's a band I forgot to mention.

I associate Numan more with the 80's than the 70's. He presaged an entire era.

Numan's sound is a world away from everything else mentioned here. It's hard to consider the likes of Numan in the same thread as the Byrds or even the Beatles - they inhabit a different universe.

Kraftwerk doesn't fit the typical image of the 60's and 70's either. I fucking love Man Machine. But to be totally honest, I haven't given the Pleasure Principle enough listens. Right now I only remember Cars and Metal from it. I don't know, I felt the whole album sounded too mechanized and similar from beginning to end. There seem to be too many songs too. But I'm gonna give it another chance one of these days.
