            And it ain't over yet.

            How about Walter Egan and Stevie Nicks singing,

              HAPPY HOLIDAYS!



              I couldn't resist a second shot of my post from last year about an old favorite song from 1970.

              One more time for new members, my hometown is Norfolk, Virginia. Now you would think that growing up in a city few people ever hear about must be dull. But the more I surf the web the more convinced I am that Norfolk was a happening place. Close enough to the nation's Capital and NYC, but far enough away to keep it real!

              So check this out - 38 years ago in mid December, a Norfolk native son was tearin' up the soul charts with a hit song that made it to #14 on the pop charts across the country and hit #3 on the eastern seaboard regional charts.

              The name of the band: Chairmen of the Board

              The name of the song: "Pay To The Piper"

              And on lead vocals, the unstoppable General Norman Johnson!

              Let me tell ya, General Johnson in live concert can set the stage on fire! And at 66 years old, the man still hasn't missed a beat and can sing his heart out like a man half his age. And yes, General Johnson and the two surviving Chairmen of the Board have reunited and are still in concert across the country today. They're on facebook too.

              Here it is, but "Pay To The Piper" is [u]not[/u] a holiday song, it's R&B dance music:

                  Just when you think you've got 70's music pegged, along comes a song that stops you right in your tracks.

                  For me, even after all these years, the song still amazes,


                  Neil Sedaka - "The Immigrant" - 1974:

                      Let's get this thread jumpin' for 2011!


                      Any list of [u]Seventies Best[/u] has to include at least one cut from that amazing double-album release of the soundtrack from the 1971 hit movie "SHAFT".

                      Face it, it ain't the 70's without SHAFT.

                      Now if you're expecting me to link to the title song, "Theme from Shaft", then you really don't know me very well! :P

                      Ol' Eddie's going for that awesome instrumental from the movie,


                      Isaac Hayes - "Cafe Regio's" - 1971:

                      (Relax, this is the shorter radio-air version, not the full session cut)

                      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNnpnVCdWTc

                      The Eldorado is dead. Long live the Eldorado.

                        I've been going through a 70s Prog phase for a while, but a couple I keep flicking back on iTunes are

                        1. "Neanderthal Man" by Hotlegs (10cc under a different name)
                        2. "Think About It" by Fleetwood Mac (b-side of Rumours I think?)
                        3. "In Love" by Prince
                        4. "Mess" by Sir Paul McCartney (he's got some killer b-sides)

                          Don't overlook the C&W explosion that made the 70's unique.

                          I've never forgotton this song from 1975,


                          Tanya Tucker - "Lizzie And The Rainman":

                                    Did someone say Prog rock?

                                    King Crimson wowed many with their 1969 debut In the Court of the Crimson King. Shortly after leaving Yes in 1972 drummer Bill Bruford joined King Crimson for a few incredible albums, most namely Larks' Tongues in Aspic from 1973 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhFVy861B7g and Red from 1974 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5C8v99kV1jY

                                        Now even though I'm not a real fan of this singing style, it would take a heart of stone not to admire the skill and clarity of the voice on this hit song.

                                          In 1974 Genesis recorded their final album with Peter Gabriel on lead vocals, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway;

                                          The title track:

                                          By 1976 Genesis were recording as a four piece with Tony Banks writing the majority of the group's material and drummer Phil Collins singing lead vocals;

                                          By 1978 Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett had also left the group after being fed up with Tony Banks' domination and Phil Collins dismissing material he submitted to the band. Genesis were now reduced to a trio and immediately scored a hit single with Follow You Follow Me which would inspire them to conentrate more on Pop than Prog Rock in the 80's.
