late 70's rock and roll


Recommended Posts

  • 'Wish You Were Here'

    Now one of the biggest bands on the planet, Pink Floyd reached into their past for an album (like its predecessor, the breakthrough Dark Side of the Moon ) about their one-time leader, Syd Barrett – whose mental illness, among other things, had forced his retirement. Wish You Were Here is their loving postcard to him, with the album's centerpiece "Shine on You Crazy Diamond" one of rock's biggest and most enduring tributes.

    1977

    'Animals'

    Another one of the many transitional albums in Pink Floyd's career, Animals marks their first real political work as well as a reaction to the punk music then booming in the band's U.K. homeland. The album's five pieces weave together to form one of the group's most complex and textured albums. The gargantuan tour, and its many problems, inspired several of The Wall's most nihilistic moments.

    'The Wall'

    Roger Waters dug deep into his personal family history for his double-record masterpiece about war, its toll on survivors, celebrity, isolation and getting sucked into your own head. It's such a fully formed and realized work that when it came time to make a 1982 movie based on The Wall, most of the pieces were already in place. The band's opus ... and its breaking point.

Love that album

I went on a bit of a Little Feat jag a few months back (I collect vinyl) and found a Little Feat recording from King Biscuit (who remembers that one?) Flour Hour. While it doesn't have the Tower of Power backing that Columbus has, it's still pretty amazing. Add to that Lowell's commentary (re Willin he says: this one got me fired from Mothers of Invention) and it was well worth the price (not more than a new CD, IIRC), while not quite in mint condition.

Of course, I got the only one that was available on Discogs at the time.

i'm sorry , anyone who thinks boston plays music should have a lobotomy 

Apology accepted.

Or maybe this. Hard to erase the soundtrack of your youth when most of it came through the car radio.

Boston and Kansas bands overproduced music pretty much killed my interest in American popular bands in the late '70s

All of the Eagles did better work on their own IMO.

1977- grateful for anything that could drown out disco - the only good to come from disco was to motivate me to learn something to do beside playing in clubs and bars.    FWIW there are some I like better but since we are doing late 70s.

Ok, not exactly late 70s but close enough...

It's early October 1975, I'm fresh outta 4 years in the Navy and heading to New Hampshire with two best buds in my van on a Friday night. We're jazzed, gonna see another brother, hike some White Mountains and do what 20 somethings do.

We're just off the Tappan Zee and have been passing the pipe and sipping Cella Lambrusco from the bottle as young immortals are wont to do and my buddy Rick tunes in an FM underground station outta NYC. FM radio has only recently declared itself the home of all the hippest, coolest, stonedest stuff available on the air and this song comes on.

It was a transcendental moment for me, having spent the previous 3 years on a base that only got an AM polka radio station or I was out at sea.

Lifted my head right off!
