      When you think "classic Rock", think the Netherlands cuz back in the 70's this guy hit like a true force of nature. Music and art in equal measure,
      Herman Brood burned bright, lived fast and died young.

      And left his mark.


      Herman Brood - Saturday Night - 1979:


      Samples of his artwork and music...

      The Eldorado is dead. Long live the Eldorado.

            This is so fantastic.
            Real "put the top down" convertible music. Great post TRI.


            Now I have a link to Soulsville 1972 and I wonder if anyone has heard this before?

            Take a listen now, cuz I'm not sure how long YouTube will leave this up:

                        When I was younger, and when my dad used to drive me to school, we used to listen to a lot of 70's rock on the classic rock station, so I'm glad he introduced me to it.

                          Here is Bobby Caldwell's biggest hit of the 70's:

                          What You Won't Do For Love - 1978...

                                  Nice track, funky, you should give Chuck Mangione a listen sometime he sounds quite similar to this (trumpet/jazz/funk)

                                      Very catchy tune, the first line of this song was sampled by Daft Punk for their song "Superheroes"

                                        I'm listening to a song of his called Land of Make Believe. It's got a lively feel to it. I like it.
