The 70’s as a genre were not something l was that big into until much later in the ten year span. I grew up with mostly my Father’s choice of music playing and equally in the early 70’s l was in Australia and not really do much listening to any music if l could help it. By the mid 70’s l was listening mostly to classical, but by the later 70’s and back in the UK, l was slowly coming to terms with this strange thing called pop music. I wasn’t a complete numbskull to the scene, but l arrived back in England in 1977 and kids around me were talking about this and that, and l was vaguely aware, but preferred reading and table top wargaming. However, that’s just me, let’s look at the ten years of 1970 – 1979 shall we?
If you have any personal choices you might like to see added in, then please feel to drop me a comment with the artist, date and title of song.
So get your flares on, your paisleys out, your wide brimmed hats and your foot stompers and let’s be having us a swing time groovin’ back to the 70’s with the 15 best of 1970!
