Not quite '70s, but late '60s and well worth finding:

Jethro Tull: Benefit (Warner Bros., I think, or Reprise) - good on both 
speakers and headphones

Fairport Convention: Angel Delight (A & M) - probably best on speakers

Disclaimer: I've only listened to the LPs, not the CDs, so I have no 
idea whether the CD transfers were well done.

Also late 1960s:

The Band: The Band (Capitol) - good on speakers or headphones

In that case I can testify that the CD transfer is excellent.
