Italian Disco fever! Anything that hailed from Italy during the 70's was pretty damn rad, especially Vivien Vee. Heavy metal was seeing it's best years. The hippie counter-culture was dying. Synthesizer was just becoming a tool used in music, mostly pioneered by Pink Floyd. For me, I liked the simple New York folk that originated around during the time. When the riots (In New York) of '76 passed, a change could be heard in singers, calling for change. One in three high school students admit to smoking marijuana, as well as the LSD craze slowly dying. At the end of it all, disco was gone, change brought, and metal was slowly changing into a chic hair spray fumed business.
Anyway, here's some Vivien Vee, because she is awesome.
Didn't Neil write 'Heart of Gold' in '74? That has to be the best f*cking song I have ever heard most of the time.
I've no idea when it was written, but it was quite a bit before the recording of Harvest ('72) considering he performs it on Live At Massey Hall 1971, though then it was segued with "A Man Need A Maid". "Heart of Gold" is a really beautiful song and what originally got me into NY in the first place.
Probably my favourite Some of the most influential bands released their most influential albums in the 70's. To start it off Led Zeppelin killed off the 60's by releasing 3 albums in 12 months and kicking The Beatles' Abbey Road off the top spot in the charts.
Also one of the most influential artists to come to fame in the 70's were Kraftwerk. Producing albums like Trans Europe Express, Autobahn and The Man Machine they would influence a section of electronic music we know today giving the the title The Godfathers of Electronic music.
If anyone knows Planet Rock by Afrika Bambaataa they'll definately recognise the melody in this track.
The 70s is a bit broad a subject, isn't it? So I'm just gonna go ahead and say that it was Neil Young's best period and that he is the best thing that has happened to the world ever.
Given I have been enjoying him as of late, I tend to agree. I was thinking someone here had a thread already solely in his honor. The man is a living legend. Again, a unique artist who's surprising the more you know about him
BUT, I've still no idea what the lyrics mean to this classic
Will say about Sugar Mountain, one of the best Young ballads, right up there, and this show looks like it's 1985's Live Aid
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, 1972
So much Bowie. The rest of the Berlin trilogy, plus a number of albums between Ziggy and Low, and also a pretty impressive outing in 1970 too with The Man Who Sold The World. Too many songs of Bowie to pick from, but here's one that's been playing in my head for the past while now:
