1970-77

Recommended Posts

Is it me or is the music section a bit quiet at the moment.

Being born in the late 60's my first musical interest started towards the end of the punk period. Over the last couple of years I have been able toexpand my collection and have bought 60's,80's, 90's and current albums, but very little from this period and I think I must be missing out on some good music.

Other than Floyd and Zeppellin which I already know about can you recommend some good albums/artists to check out.

I do listen to Sounds of the 70's on Radio 2 when I work late, the guy who presents thinks everything he plays is great, unfortunately I rarely seem to agree.

Thanks in advance BB

Also early Bad Company, if you're following the Free thread, especially the self titled debut - every track's a pearler.

Other Purple masterpieces - In Rock, Fireball and Machine Head. Would Rainbow fall into your timeframe? If so Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow and Rising are essentials.

bit of a rock bias in this thread methinks!

All the above are very good, but no one has mentioned THE RAMONES.........The first 3 albums are essential.

Come to think of it, did anyone mention THE STOOGES..........again the first 3 albums are essential.

I'm sure I'll think of some more

Parliament or Funkadelic, especially "Mothership Connection" or "Get up for the down stroke",and "Maggot Brain", or "Uncle Jam", or "Electric Spanking of war babies"...

Or anything by Bootsys Rubber Band - it's all the Funk..

Then there's "Bitches Brew" and "Agharta" by Miles Davis for some jazz rock, or Herbie Hancock's "Thrust", or Cantaloupe Island for something a bit different from standard rock fodder..

A couple of Mike Oldfield ones that see time in the tray fairly regularly are Ommadawn and Incantations.

Just finished listening to the first of the recommendations - Neil Young - Harvest.

Picked up from Virgin today for £4.99.

It wasn't as rocky as I thought it would be, which isnot a criticism. Thoroughly enjoyed it and now feeling mellow.

Thanks for the recommendation Snapper.
