The 1970`s: Can You Dig the Get Down and Boogie, Baby

on Tue Jan 09, 2018 12:48 pm
Tracks from the 1970`s. Ye gods, what crazy slang they had in those days. Must have been the leisure suits and herringbone necklaces over all of those hairy chests.

Track: 'The Logical Song'---Supertramp

Respectfully dedicated to our saviour BobLucas, without whom, no forum
(whatever other flimsy explanations he may come up with). It's the title that
counts----the lyrics are hilarious but have no bearing on this wonderful gent.

Pretty atypical of most styles of music, this guy was fantastic.. one of the last great eccentrics in my opinion.
Music misses a bit of off the wall stuff now.
Very clever with words too, from the Bonzo's material through to Rawlinson End which is a verbal delight.

I must have missed this when you posted it!
Thanks! They're a great band.. I must see them live at some point, their last album was killer!

Bubs and Dudders at PSF have been going through the albums of Tim Buckley (Jeff's father) and slowly roasting them one by one.

At least this one made Bubs laugh. Lorca (1970) is an astonishing listen----really weird, much of it, outsider music even. Very basic instrumentation but very effective. But I think I shall be leaving it at this one album.

Was alerted to this one on PSF. The mysterious Garrett Lund released just one solo
album. This is the opening track from Almost Grown, a gem entitled "The Only
Turnaround". There's something magical about the three-bar pattern in 3/4 metre,
best noted in the solo. Great guitar work all round from the late Jimmy Jerviss:

I heard this song in 1976 or '77  when I was doing cleaning work in NL before I learned the lingo.
Originally recorded by Blue Magic as a ballad, "Sideshow" gave Barry Biggs a UK #3 in early 1977.
I only found out the name of the song today, when the original turned up on a Spotify list my son
had playing in the background. I googled the song name and came across this reggae version...

Heard a lot of Cat Stevens' music in the 1960s and particularly the '70s, after Tea for the Tillerman
brought him international recognition. There's a great story about his 1971 hit "Morning Has
Broken" but I'll leave it to a great storyteller. With thanks to Buckethead at Smiley for the heads up.

Folks I seem to have got stuck in the '70s (not necessarily a bad thing). PSF poster Watamushi
namechecked The Carpenters' version of "Please Mr, Postman" in the Shoutbox, so I gave it a
listen (I'm not familiar with their work outside of a few 45s). This is beautiful! What incredible
voices they have, particularly Karen. Like The Beatles, they leave in the original lines "Deliver ze
letter, ze sooner ze better", which somehow got replaced in later reissues by original hit-makers
The Marvelettes. Perhaps someone shouted racist, which is downright silly. My copy got it right.

Still in the 1970s! Well, 1970 to be precise, the year Kapp Records released Parallelograms by Linda
Perhacs. It's not surprising if it means nothing to you----the album sank without a trace. In a just
world, it would been hailed as a masterpiece. Luckily, it is getting more attention now. Thanks to
theSuperMetroid (again) for showering us PSF'ers with amazing obscure stuff from the late '60s,
early '70s. This is the best yet----check out the title track (and the BB connection on her wiki page):

Here's a track from a band whose name would probably have put me off ever dipping into, had it not been mentioned in a PSF topic dedicated to obscure albums from the late '60s, early '70s. Mom's Apple Pie do this great cover of Etta James's "I Just Wanna  Make Love To You", which still features in my former band's repertoire (in a medley with "Born To Be Wild"). Another great track on their debut album is "Lay Your Money Down". Thank you, that person.

I've had this on my mind all morning. Yes folks, disco is alive and well and residing at THe BeAcH BoYs ExPeRieNCe, A Creative Site for Fans of The Beach Boys, Other Musical Artists, and Non-Musical Genres.

My Dad saw this band live in the '70s. He said the members were really tall and looked like giants (one member stepped over my Dad at the front to get to the bar he was that tall, lol!). He also said they kicked ass live!

On a more serious note... I've posted this portrait before, on the Tapatalked Bored. I was reminded of it while talking to a good friend last night. It's inextricably linked in my mind with "Cortez the Killer", my favourite song by Neil Young. Both relate in some way to impending catastrophe. Ironically, the tape ran out on NY and Crazy Horse when they were recording it so that much simply went missing--I believe there was/is an additional verse. Those distorted guitar chords before the final fading solo really do suggest impending doom. "What a killer..."

Looking to identify tracks on one of my to-be-categorized BB/BW comps, I bumped into this great demo by The Pranks (see link):

Pretty cool! So they copied the Pet Sounds style. What's the history behind them doing that?
