    Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen: 'Hot Rod Lincoln' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3R7l7nDuj1o

    Neil Young: 'Heart of Gold' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pO8kTRv4l3o

    The Hollies: 'Long Cool Woman' - shit man, that song rocks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qKOv3VBJcc

    Elton John: 'Rocket Man' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCf23ZTFaDM FUCKING ROCKET MAN (btw I saw Elton in Indianapolis in like 05 - absolutely killer show)

    America: 'A Horse With No Name' (call em a Neil knock off if you want to, they never hid that they were inspired by him, nor offended by those taking those shots, and, a song that prolly stands up to time pretty well) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zSAJ0l4OBHM

    The Moody Blues: 'Knights in White Satin' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9muzyOd4Lh8

    Jim Croce: 'You Don't mess around with Jim' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4qUXcXuMSE

    And, yeah, I admit Brandy still gets airtime.

    Neil Diamond: 'Song Sung Blue' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ighSddnnaPE (might have to be a fan, lol)
    Man...I absolutely LOVED America's "Horse with No Name" as a kid! I was really into horses as a kid...4H equestrian club and all, when we came back to the U.S. from living abroad.

    I think Gordan Lightfoot had some good tunes from that era, as well. Marshall Tucker Band. Of course Jim Croce. Boston's Peace of Mind (which I have always liked more than the their more popular "More than a Feeling").

    Some really crappy shit from the early seventies, as well...but that is true of every era.

    I'm no Southerner by ANY stretch of the imagination, but damned if I can't get into some Doobie Brothers "Mississippi Black Water".

    Back in the 70's I was into trippin balls out. Besides the usual heavy dose of pink Floyd, Hawkwind and Amon Düül were big favorites for when the walls were evaporating.

    ^^^Croce was a great songwriter.

    A couple that have recently come across my playlists
    Malo - Suavacito

    This song led me to War and the Latin rock scene
    These guys still kick it


    Next is Zap Pow from 1978

    GSH was unreal. He played the club in DC I worked at, and they shot a movie about it. I was just off the stage for this show and I helped move stuff and whatnot for the movie set, I got to say like 3 words to him but it was cool. It was a great club, The Wax Museum, hence the movie title "Black Wax". Production values were high in that place.



    it's like 90 minutes long but check it sometime. It's not all concert footage, there's other some cool segments too. The section right after the first song was taped about 2 blocks from the club, it was a different city back then.

    I wonder how Hot Rod Lincoln got in there. A rockabilly classic, unlike the other trite schmaltz in the list. I've heard Bill Kirchin play Hot Rod Lincoln live at least a half dozen times and it doesn't get old. I've been trying to get the riff down on my tele for years but no luck.

    Thoughts on this song? I listen and think I was born in the wrong era.

    Fifth year of college (2000), me and my roommates briefly had a contest to see who could hook up with the most girls...the catch was that you had to put on Croce's Operator when you got back to the apartment AND you had to pour your date a glass of brandy from a shitty decanter we bought at a thrift shop. It definitely added a worthy obstacle to the challenge. I vaguely remember getting some very interesting reactions and occasionally accusatory looks. But the ones that dug it were keepers.

    Long live Croce.

    GF told me the story of the shitty rental car breaking down in Baja , riding in the back of a truck into a town banging on a door of a hotel forever in the dead of night till someone opens it to finaly getting a room and it was the Hotel California

    She was having complications from pregnancy, the mexican MD said she needed to rest so no moving for 3 days so she sat by the pool for 3 days and she remembers the mission bells

    so without missing a beat I said " so you were just a prisoner of your own device ? "

    You folks that like music from this era should go see Ringo Starr and his All-Star band. We saw them last April, and it was like going back in time. In a good way.
