Stretch out a bit with this one. Very cosmic. I think this was the first song I ever heard by Al Stewart, back in 1974 or so. It was also the first I heard of Nostradamus. Music used to turn us on to so many things in those days!

I was always a fan of "Mother And Child Reunion".  Yes, the lyrics did leave me scratching my head at times - but at that time, head-scratching lyrics weren't too unusual.

And funny how this thread unfolded, because for a time in 1965 Paul Simon and Al Stewart were roommates in London when Simon moved there briefly to immerse himself in the English folk scene.

From "Alone Together" one of the most classic albums of the rock era. The original pressing of "Alone Together" was done in multicolored vinyl and each one was unique. It was done by dropping a dye pellet into the vinyl for each album pressed. DJs used to call this "the bowling ball album" because the swirls of color resembled some bowling balls. It also came with a gatefold sleeve that folded out in many directions to create a poster. Must have cost a fortune to produce. Absolutely wonderful! Although Dave Mason wrote and recorded this song, Delaney & Bonnie also had a hit with it shortly after.

Melanie (with the Edwin Hawkins Singers)

"Lay Down (Candles In the Rain)"

A smash hit in 1970. She wrote it about her performance at Woodstock when the audience lit candles and held them up. This was one of the very first times this happened and was a precursor to the "holding up Bic lighters at concerts" phenomenon of the 70s and 80s. The candles did not extinguish even though it was pouring rain. She saw a sea of candles in the darkness. Cosmic! And thus a hippie anthem was born.

I was friends for years with her before I knew who her sister was-and I didn't learn it from her. She doesn't announce it-but she doesn't deny it,either. The most she ever told me was when I had her & her significant other over for dinner and we were talking about sibs and the question was "how many" and she said it was just her & her sister. There are some issues between the two of them. I never pressed her for any info. I figure if she wants to talk about it, she will.

This song will always bring tears to my eyes. It was mine & my mother's song. Now the lyrics:

And when one of us is gone,
And one of us is left to carry on,
Then remembering will have to do,
Our memories alone will get us through
Think about the days of me and you,
Of you and me against the world.


really hit home because one of us is gone and I miss her dearly.  :\'( :\'( :\'( :\'(

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bwMqliLXZQ

As I said in the previous post, I saw it on PBS when it aired in 1971. It blew my head off. The broadcast was called "Full Circle" and it was an hour of Leon Russell and a half hour of Cat Stevens. Both were playing in what looked like an old warehouse or something. I loved the looseness of it, with kids and dogs running around and people just hanging out.  The incredible thing about the Leon Russell segment is that there was a woman who appeared to be baking a cake from scratch while the concert was taking place, and she went around serving everybody! What a trip. The Cat Stevens segment was a bit more stripped down and subdued than Leon Russell's riotous set, but equally excellent.

Yes, my understanding is that the "Hare Krsna Mantra" from the same album was quite a big hit in the UK.  Believe it or not I actually heard "Govinda" on a top 40 station here in the US in 1971 as part of a "Beatles Weekend" type thing. That's where I first heard it and sought out the album. It rapidly became a collector's item around here among Beatle fans. Years later it was reissued on CD as "Chant and Be Happy".

Our apartment was on the top floor and I went to visit some people who lived in the bottom floor (but the same door). Someone said that there was a party going on somewhere. So, I joined them and found myself in the middle of a field somewhere with a whole bunch of other people partying. I can't remember how long we were there for before heading back.

Celebrating Joni Mitchell's birthday today!

"Big Yellow Taxi" from 1970


When I was in New York City, the taxis were all the same size.  ;D

Happy 75th birthday Joni! I'm sure they all are the same size. ;)

She also mentions yellow New York taxis in this song. Whenever I've been in New York and see those seeming fleets of taxis going by, I always think of the line from this song:

"Yellow schools of taxi fishes
Jonah in a ticking whale
Caught up at the light in the fishnet windows
Of Bloomingdale's"

That's exactly what they look like! "Yellow schools of taxi fishes".

This song touched my soul when I first heard it when I was about 9 or 10. What was really strange that it now reminds me of a man I used to know. At the time, I worked in the theatre and he was going for his pilot's license. "She was going to be an actress and I was going to learn to fly." Yes, we parted ways but whenever I hear this song, I think about him.

This might partly be because the Tokens actually sing backup on the Robert John version. The differences I find in the Robert John arrangement are the subtle addition of congas and acoustic guitar. Very 70s flourishes, but, like I said, they are subtle.

We don't seem to have any Jackson Browne in this thread yet... so here's one from him.

"The Load-Out/Stay" from 1977:
7UC4SLsPQic

The first 5 1/2 minutes, "The Load-Out" is a storytelling of his concert tours and what goes on; he then segues into "Stay", a cover performance of a song originally recorded by Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs in 1960. Browne's lyrics have more to do with the content of "The Load-Out."

In "Stay" there are two guest vocalists: Rosemary Butler and David Lindley. (Lindley provides the falsetto verse.)

If you REALLY want to know what the late 70s were like, listen to the SOME GIRLS album by the Stones from beginning to end. This album captures it more than any single other album. The disco, the punk, the soul, the sexuality, the dismally beautiful glitter of it all, all merged into one cohesive whole. I don't know how they did it, but they did. You'll SMELL the late 70s...

This is from the one solo album John Phillips of the Mamas and Papas made during his lifetime, called "John, the Wolfking of L.A.". It was largely ignored at the time of it's release and was delegated to the cutout bins. In more recent years it has been recognized for the brilliant gem, basically a masterpiece, that it is. There are better songs on it than "Mississippi", but that one was a reasonable hit, so you might know it.

Such a beautiful song.

Lyrics in English:

https://lyricstranslate.com/en/anak-child.html

"Child"

The day you were born to this world
Your parents were full of joy
And their arms are your light

And your mother and father
Worry and don't know what to do
Watch over you even in your sleep

And in the night, a sleepless night, your mother
Is still awake to prepare your milk

And in the morning you are in the lap
Of your father, who is so joyful because of you

Now you are all grown up
You desire to be independent
Even if your parents forbid, they can't stop you

Isn't it you that changed a lot
Disobeyed them, remained stubborn
And you did not follow their advice

You did not take the time
To think about all the things they've done for you

For you desire, only what is pleasurable
You just ignored them

And the days have passed
And you took a wrong turn in life
You are imprisoned in a horrible vice

And you approach
Your dear crying mother
And she asks "Child, what happened to you?"

And your eyes immediately shed tears
Without you noticing

You are regretful and realize
That you were at fau

No, they certainly did hang it up. Here is my favorite of their early 70s songs. It received quite a bit of airplay.

Political events referenced in this song include:

Autumn 1964 – Berkeley Free Speech Movement
May 1969 – People's Park
June 1970 – rioting in Isla Vista, California
May 14–15, 1970 – Jackson State killings
May 4, 1970 – Kent State shootings

The fuzzy vocal effect was achieved by singing through an inexpensive tape recorder which was then fed into the high tech studio equipment.

Probably because the song you posted, "Soul Makossa", had a certain chant that was later rephrased by Michael Jackson as he used it in his 1983 hit "Wanna Be Starting Something" (repetitively during the end). The original phrase was "ma-mako, ma-ma-sa, mako-mako ssa"; Michael Jackson rephrased it as "Mama-say, mama-sa, ma-ma-ko-ssa" (not "Mama-say, mama-sa, ma Microsoft"). That very same version of the chant was borrowed by Rihanna for her late-2000s hit "Don't Stop The Music."

Oh yeah, George was the only one who had a post-Beatles hit with that song.  :) My mom had ATMP too with a little poster inside.  Guess who soiled the poster with her artwork? ;) Of course, at the time I was a toddler so I didn't know any better.

I remember that poster. George standing in silhouette in front of a stained glass window. The whole thing was very mystical. Actually it wasn't so little, it was pretty large! I had it on my wall for years and now still have it saved inside the album. Too bad you "defaced" yours, the original album with the poster in mint condition is worth a few bucks now. Of course, my copy of the album(s) isn't mint, I played it to death.  :)

The Bee Gees were one of those small number of groups who were able to reinvent themselves, which they did in the mid-70's, to phenomenal success.  Many forget that they were making hits prior to their "reinvention".

This melodic tune hit the scene before the brothers changed up their act, and I'm rather fond of it!  :)

Keep in mind, a lot of songs back then were specifically produced to sound good on transistor radios and tinny AM car radios (which were the only kind cars had back then). Producers would often mix a song listening back through a cheesy car radio speaker. This also accounts for the differences between the "single mix" and the "album mix" of some songs. The single would be mixed "hotter" to burst through those cheap speakers.

This song was recorded by it's author Danny O'Keefe in both 1971 and 1972, which caused some confusion. The slower 1972 version was the bigger hit. There are many cover versions as well.

This is one of those songs of the type we have discussed in various threads that was issued as an edited single. The shortened version was the one played on AM top 40 stations of the day.  In later years the edited version fell away and one only hears the full length version now. As it should be.

Anothe bit of information--true to the exploratory nature of the times, Townsend had read a book called "The Mysticism of Sound and Music" which spoke of celestial harmony and a universal chord.  He converted various human traits and astrological charts into pulses which he fed into a Lowry organ which then ran through an early ARP synthesizer. Or he did something like that, I don't know the whole story. THAT is the famed keyboard riff you hear. If only music were as exploratory and mystical today!

More reminded of her when I heard about Andre.  Dory, who herself passed away back in 2012 at age 86, definitely got the raw end of the deal when Previn left her for the much younger Mia Farrow. in fact, until Dory died I don't think a lot of us who liked her records back in the 70s knew how old she actually was when she made them (she was born in 1925). She seemed so contempo-L.A.

Is THAT what they do now? Play songs (and the same few predictable ones at that) in alphabetical order?? I'm glad I come from the glory days of underground hippy FM radio. You never knew what you would hear, but it was generally bound to be something enlightening.

I first heard this song when Vicki Lawrence sang it on the Carol Burnett Show. I was VERY impressed. It showed that not only could she do comedy, she could also sing. Of course the song went on to be a hit.

No, anytime the station does an alphabetical run (which is once in a while), called "A to Z", they'll do that. Former L.A. radio station 100.3 The Sound did that at least once a year; often times they would play not only the common songs, but other not-so-well-known songs too (including deep cuts). So, you could predict what song might come next, but you'd get surprised with what actually does come next.

That song was written by songwriter Bobby Russell, who was Vicki Lawrence's husband at the time. He also wrote "Little Green Apples" and "Saturday Morning Confusion" (the latter of which was a hit for himself). The idea was to offer "The Night That The Lights Went Out In Georgia" to Cher, who was having a lot of hits at the time.  Sonny Bono vetoed it, thinking the song would alienate one half of the country and one half of Cher's audience, namely the south. So Vicki Lawrence recorded it instead and had a big hit with it. Cher is probably still pissed off.

It seems I had a better experience than you. I saw him in 1975 on the Rolling Thunder Review when the song "Hurricane" was brand new and he sang it full of passion. Joan Baez was there also and they sang several duets of his classic songs. Joni Mitchell and Roger McGuinn of the Byrds were also on the bill. I also saw the rarely seen four hour movie Dylan made during that tour called "Renaldo annd Clara". Martin Scorsese is currently working with the tons of footage from that tour and what he comes up with is scheduled to air on Netflix later this year.

I love that one too. I posted it before and I'm glad you posted it again. I bought it in the mid 70s when it was harder to get country records if you weren't in the south, which I wasn't.  There's an unusual effect in this song if you listen closely. A scraping kind of sound that I can only identify as maybe a guitar pick scraping horizontally across the strings. The steel guitar has a very menacing (in a good way) sound also.

This band may have been a one hit wonder with this song, but lead vocalist Paul Carrack (who turns 68 today) went on to have success with other bands. He was briefly a member of Squeeze in the late 70s/early 80s, and in the late 1980s he joined Mike & The Mechanics. Not only that, he has some solo work to his name.

Judy Collins- Send In The Clowns


I saw Judy Collins and Stephen Stills together in concert this past year. Absolutely tremendous show. The concert made one feel like one was a part of something, as concerts so frequently did in the late 60s and 70s. "Send In The Clowns" is not one of my favorites, however. I never cared for the songwriting of Stephen Sondheim. There is an very popular, oft-covered song of his called "Being Alive" from the play "Company" that is absolutely ghastly. It's like a laundry list of whiny, neurotic behavior, "I'm looking for someone to hold me too close, love me too much, mess up my sleep, put me through hell, make me a wreck, blah, blah, blah...". To quote Zappa's "Valley Girl", "gag me with a spoon!".

I never cared for Send in the Clowns until I heard Glynis Johns sing in on the soundtrack of A Little Night Music. I then realized that I didn't like the way Judy Collins sang it. But, I like other songs from the play a lot more.

As for Company, I will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart for Company. When I was 17, I worked summer stock and this was one of the plays we did. In fact, I was "production assistant" on it-in other words, I was gofer to the stage manager. But, I was there for every rehearsal & every performance. I also worked props on the show-bringing things on stage between scenes & such. "Being Alive" isn't one of my favorite songs from that show. I think "Another 100 People" is MUCH better than "Being Alive". The funny thing is, this morning, I was just singing "Ladies Who Lunch" from the show-which I REALLY love. Oh, I can still remember some of the lines & some of the choreography from the show-and of course the songs because I listen to the album frequently.

For a short while Neil Young and the late Nicolette Larson were romantically involved (she also sings backup on several of his albums). During this period she found an old cassette of his version of the still-unreleased song on the floor of his car. She liked it and asked him if she could record it. He said fine, had had forgotten all about the song. I actually saw him play it live as early as 1976, though he released his version in 1978. Larson's also came out in 1978.

Oh, and the above song in Howard's post ("Copacabana"), was also parodied. Mark Jonathan Davis, a former radio personality who worked in Phoenix, wrote and recorded a parody entitled "Star Wars Cantina" in 1997 (this one is often misattributed to Al).

I had never heard this version of it before. Of course it was written by Jeff Lynne of ELO; moreover, he and the other members of The Move later formed ELO (which had originally been a "side project"). However, Jeff Lynne re-recorded it four years later with his ELO bandmates, and it became a big hit for the band in early '77. So it counts as a song that one performer records as part of two different bands. O0

Indeed.  I don't know if you recognize that in certain cases the loss was very recent to the song, for instance in the case of Jim Croce.  With him, the sting was still stinging fiercely at the time this became popular.  In fact with Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix it had only been a few short years ('70/'71).  To us 70's youth these artists weren't "historical figures" - they were musicians we'd grown up with  :-\\

Interestingly enough, I don't recall hearing this song at all on the radio back in the day. Wikipedia says it got to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 but you could have fooled me. Admittedly, by 1974 I was listening to no top 40 radio AT ALL, my taste ran entirely to the FM "progressive" stations, but generally I still knew of the existence of the songs I was ignoring. Not this one. Listening to it now I have to say I really don't care for it. The lyrics are somewhat on the "schlocky" side.

The first time I heard this it was actually on TV, and the duo, at that time considered a "comeback" (as they hadn't had a hit for a while), were being interviewed.  Most likely it was on American Bandstand.  They spoke of how the song was written to help them process these tragic losses.  I recall feeling that the song was soothing salve, as I (among others) was still smarting from grief over the losses of our musician heroes, in particular Jim Croce (it had only been a few months then).  The song subsequently got lots of Top 40 radio airplay, at least in Chicagoland...

Funny thing about the Righteous Brothers. Even though they had their biggest hits in the mid 60s, and even though the tremendous Phil Spector production gave the songs a sort of "instant classic" feel, it always seemed to me that they belonged in the 1950s or in the pre-Beatles early 60s. They even looked that way. I was never much of a fan.

I never learned chords. I know the basis of reading music-Every Good Boy Does Fine & FACE. But when it comes to sharps, flats, and any key other than C, I haven't a clue. I am trying to teach myself how to play the recorder, penny whistle & flute. I can play Ode To Joy on the recorder & penny whistle.

We have something in common, even though my son love the tune, but he hates it when I pick out Beethoven's "Ode To Joy" on any musical instrument, even a kiddies play toy with minimal keys.

I saw them in concert back in the late '70s. I was never really a BOC fan but the night before the concert, I fell asleep with my radio on and all night long, the commercials for the concert seeped into my unconsciousness. I woke up saying that I wanted to go to the concert. I called a friend of mine and her brother just happen to know someone who had some tickets that they were trying to sell. My friend didn't want to go so I went with her brother. So, we bought the tickets about a half hour before the concert and we were about 10 rows from the stage. Not too bad. Of course my ears rang for about 3 days after.  :-\\  Yeah, it was THAT LOUD!

Quite possibly the first best-selling rap music single. I have also heard the full-length version as posted here; however, when it gets played on radio, most stations cut it down to about 5 or 6 (sometimes 7) minutes.

That's the long version. The 45 single I bought in 1971 splits the song over two sides. It kind of slightly fades out on side one and fades back in on side 2, but between the two sides the song is complete. The version the radio stations played was an edit specially made for radio. Maybe some stations made their own edit too.

There's a whole interesting phenomenon regarding this subject. It was common practice to edit longer songs for 45 rpm singles to fit the stricter AM radio formats. It was done all the time. Many of these songs became hits.  But, as the years went on, these edited hit versions sort of vanished and you never hear them now. A prime example is "Layla". It was a hit single in 1972, a full two years after the album was released. But the single completely edited out the long piano instrumental coda. That was the version people heard on AM radio in 1972 and on the single they bought. Absolutely nobody hears that version now. In fact, if you heard "Layla" on the radio now without the ending you would feel ripped off. You'd say "where's the rest of the song?".  The exact same situation occurred with "Nights In White Satin" also a hit in 1972, two full years after the album was released. The spoken word poem at the end was edited out of the single, and that's what AM radio played. In the case of Aerosmith's "Dream On" and Ten Years After's "I'd Love To Change The World", part of the guitar solo was edited out in both songs. You never hear those edited versions now, but back then you did.

I was an early convert to FM freeform radio and always went for the longer versions. I was an "albums person", as we used to be called.

It's the original version from Peter Yarrow's first solo album in 1972 during the time Peter, Paul & Mary were split up. When they got back together they recorded their own, somewhat shorter, lighter version of it and it became a concert staple of theirs for the rest of the life of the band, until Mary Travers passed away. I'm sure Peter plays it to this day.

I was just referring to later hits of theirs, such as those of the 1980s, such as "More Than This" and "Avalon" (both of which I have heard on the SiriusXM 'First Wave' channel, as well as other songs of theirs).

Of course, they also had earlier singles earlier in the 1970s, which were popular in their native UK.

Traffic's "John Barleycorn" is truly one of the most perfect albums ever made. At the same time, former Traffic member Dave Mason released his own absolutely perfect gem of an album "Alone Together". The album cover folded out three ways into a poster and the album itself was swirly multi-colored vinyl. Each copy of the vinyl was unique, no two were the same.

O0 Excellent album cut song!



There are a couple of interesting things about "Awaiting On You All".  On the innersleeve and album credits of the original "All Things Must Pass" album it is entitled exactly as such. "Awaiting On You All". But on the label it is listed as "Awaiting On You". Possible that it was merely a typo, but we invested great significance in such things in those heady times. The other, bigger thing, is that there is a verse Harrison sings in the song that is omitted from the lyrics printed on the innersleeve.

"Now the pope owns 51 percent of General Motors
And the stock exchange is the only thing he's qualified to quote us"

I'm not sure if George Harrison was worried about that verse, but maybe somebody at the record company was. Again, those were heady times. I also felt that the opening line "you don't need no love in, you don't need no bed pan" was a slight dig at John & Yoko, who had recently done their famous "bed in for peace" in both Amsterdam and Montreal.

I had read that line was in response to John and Yoko's "Bed In" event.  (Now George had a special knack for commemorating actual events in his sphere with songs - gotta love that about him  :D)

Incidentally, I fully recall seeing TV coverage of at least a little of the "Bed In" at the time it happened; I recall my mom alerting me to it, as she knew my fondness for the Beatles.

I love the spirituality and the philosophical questions of that song. A lot of people were shocked when Cat Stevens became a Muslim and gave up his successful musical career in the late 70s, but I wasn't. It had been clear in his music for years that he was searching for something.

I first heard this song in 1971 when it was the B side of John & Yoko's classic "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" single. I still have my original clear green vinyl 45 on Apple Records. I fell in love with this song instantly. It was written by Yoko and in more recent years it has been covered by excellent artists as diverse as Harry Nilsson, Galaxy 500 and Thea Gilmore. I bet you didn't know Yoko was such a widely covered songwriter. An absolutely lovely song, especially for this time of year.

The Australian band Python Lee Jackson with guest lead vocal by Rod Stewart. Recorded in 1970, re-released and became a hit in 1972 after Rod Stewart's star had ascended. Terrific song.

"Lover of the Bayou"
The Byrds
1970

From their classic 1970 double album "(untitled)". Yes, that's the name of it.  :)  One disc live and one disc studio material. Fantastic guitar work by the late Clarence White.

The reason the album has such an unusual name is that while the band was deciding on a title for the album ("Phoenix" seemed the most likely contender) the cover artwork had to be sent to the printer. As a placeholder, their producer wrote "(untitled)" in the box for "title", thinking it could be taken care of later. The artwork came back with "(untitled)" as the title. There you go. That's how things were in those days.  ;)

Eddie Kendricks  and David Ruffin of the Temptations played at Live Aid in 1985, backed by the  Hall & Oates band. I watched it broadcast live in MTV. MTV aired the entire, all day event from both locations. One of the major networks (CBS or ABC, I forget which) aired a prime time segment from about 8PM-11PM.

Mick Jagger and Tina Turner, who DEFINITELY aired in the prime time segment, were also backed by the Hall & Oates band. They were busy guys that day. At one point Jagger yanked off Tina's tiny leather miniskirt leaving her to finish the song in just a leotard and fishnet stockings. Presumably this was planned and rehearsed, but I don't know for sure because she DID finish the rest of the song sort of hiding behind an amp rather than center stage. Also, at an earlier point in the song I saw him reach for her skirt but she slapped his hand away. So who knows? But everybody took this in their stride, as we did in those days. The music may have made headlines, but the "wardrobe malfunction" really didn't.  None of the brouhaha that would ensue years later with Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson at the Superbowl.

Recall that back in that day it wasn't uncommon at all to be very familiar with an artist's music and not know what they look like.  Interestingly, I never saw Rod Stewart until about two or three years later - I recall being surprised how he looked, as I pictured him differently.

Great selection. O0

The first time I heard it (on radio), I wondered what the title was...but when I finally found out, I realized that particular song is one of many that never mentions its title. However, the title of the single release does contain some of the recurring phrases in parentheses (This Ain't No Party... This Ain't No Disco... This Ain't No Foolin' Around). :D

I remember when the "Dark Horse" album came out in 1974 it did not get very good reviews, nor did the US tour George embarked on at the same time, primarily due to the laryngitis he had (which is evident on the album also). One particularly snarky reviewer wrote about "Ding Dong", "if the idea of a grown man standing in front of thousands of dollars of recording equipment singing 'ding dong,ding dong' doesn't bother you, you might like this song".  Personally, I like the "Dark Horse" album, laryngitis or otherwise.

Pretty much the exact same thing happened that same year of 1970 with "Big Yellow Taxi". Some band never heard from before or since called The Neighborhood got a lot of airplay with their version of Joni Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi". It's the first version I heard.  It's a bit bubblegum-ish but really  it doesn't stray an inch from Joni's original arrangement, except maybe to add some drums. It's just that Joni is such a heavyweight she could never sound bubblegum, no matter what she was doing. The Neighborhood's version has since completely disappeared.

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Mr. Bojangles (Fall 1970)    :)



Though this song has the feel of a traditional song or standard that's been around forever, it was written by Austin songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker in 1968. Walker was also briefly in the band Circus Maximus who did the psychedelic song "The Wind", an FM classic that I posted in the 60s song of the day topic some time back. I'd say the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band do the definitive version of the oft-covered "Bojangles". There was also a rootsy version by David Bromberg that got quite a bit of FM airplay. And a "Las Vegas-y" (i.e. schlocky)version by Sammy Davis Jr. that he sang on every talk and variety show of the era.

Here's something a little different. Instead of a song, I am posting an article ABOUT a song. "The Forgotten Political Roots of 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'". When a song like this becomes a "standard", played at weddings, churches and whatnot, sometimes the real meaning of it and the times in which it was released and the writer's intent gets washed away. This has happened with songs like John Lennon's "Imagine", Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", even John & Yoko's "Happy Christmas (War I Over)". They become almost "feel good singalong" type things, which couldn't be further from their origins.  I myself remember when all of those songs were brand new and fresh  and I felt the impact of the original intent of the song. This article sets the context of the times in which "Bridge Over Troubled Water" was released. Definitely worth a read for the music lover.

Interesting read. It really sounded like Paul Simon was a bit of a diva. But, I do agree that it was his greatest song.

I remember in 1980, they had a countdown of the greatest songs of the '70s and this song was Number 1!

I think it was last year but I can't remember what show it was. They had Paul Simon on and man, did he sound TERRIBLE. It was really painful to listen to.

Paul Simon has a reputation for being difficult. His acrimonious relationship with Art Garfunkel is legendary. I always thought there was something very symbolic about the cover photo of the "Bridge Over Troubled Water" album where Simon's head is completely blocking Garfunkel's mouth.

I remember seeing Simon on TV in the past year or so and also thinking he didn't sound too good. Maybe it was the same show. Strangely enough, I also remember thinking how weird his eyebrows looked. All jagged and angular. Like they were painted on with magic marker, but whoever did it didn't do a good job. Strange.

Actually, it's generally believed that the "two faced" musicians was John's sly dig at English impresario Sir Lew Grade, the man the event was supposedly in tribute to. Lennon and the Beatles had had bad dealings with Grade, whom  bought up the rights to hundreds of Beatles songs. In 1974 this was all supposedly  settled, but Grade still retained 50% of the rights. Incidentally, virtually nobody in America in 1975 had ever even heard of Lew Grade, so the fact that this tribute was broadcast in prime time on network TV is very likely because of the appearance of John Lennon.

Jackson Browne
"Fountain of Sorrow"
1975

I always assumed it had something to do with the "paper shortage" of that went on circa 1973-1975. You may recall this. For some reason there was said to be a shortage of paper during this period and a lot of companies tightened their belts. The direct result of this was that for a while album covers stopped being as elaborate as they had been in the 70s. For a while  gatefold sleeves, which had been very prevalent up to that point, became almost nonexistent. Even albums that had gatefold sleeves that were still being printed up started being issued in single sleeves. Also albums stopped having inserts such as lyric sheets. BUT, if you could send away for the Jackson Browne lyric sheet it means they printed it anyway, so why not just include it with the album? Maybe they printed up less of them, figuring only a certain number of people would take the trouble to write in. This was the era of "shortages". You may also recall the "oil crisis" of this time period. That also had an effect on the record business. Vinyl being a byproduct of petroleum, of course. Albums became thinner and companies were reusing vinyl and using shoddier materials, resulting in more pops and clicks and other problems for a while.

I have vague memories of a "paper shortage" sometime in the mid 70's - as I didn't have any trouble consuming paper at the time, I considered this more or less "theoretical" (whereas the oil crisis seemed very real at the time, with price spikes and lines at the gas station and the sudden popularity of small cars).  But you may be onto something.  During that timeframe, I consumed very few albums - my allowance was a pittance, and most of what I wanted was available on 45s anyway.  So I wouldn't have noticed much about the change in album packaging.

(I did eventually end up with a collection of hundreds of albums, a large chunk being 70's - but these were mostly consumed after the fact, given I used to spend hours in used record stores and regular record stores - after I was a bit older and had money, primarily in the late 70's and 80's).

I put "paper shortage" and "oil crisis" in quotes because even back then I wondered how much of this was an actual shortage and how much was a manufactured shortage for financial and political reasons. Although I am well aware that natural resources are not unlimited, I am not sure THAT had much to do with the "shortages".

You seem quite intrigued by variety shows. There WERE variety shows in the 80s, they just never caught on as big as they had been previously and the entire genre eventually died out. In recent years both Rosie O'Donnell (A Boomer) and Neil Patrick Harris (Gen X) made attempts to revive the genre with no success. At one point I too used to wonder why they died out, but now so much time has gone by that they do seem like something very much entrenched in another era. Oh, and one more PRACTICAL reason why they won't come back is that they're just too expensive to produce. Carol Burnett herself recently said it in an interview. She said that to stage a variety show like hers in this day and age would just be too cost prohibitive. Why would the networks bother when they can do reality shows for next to nothing.

On that same first album she did a cover of Buffalo Springfield's "Bluebird" (recently posted here, of course) which also received quite a bit of FM airplay at the time. The first song on her first album! She doesn't change the gender. And no, she's not gay. This was a common practice, especially in folk (and in this case blues-rock). One was an interpreter, telling the story. The song stood on it's own, apart from the singer, so to speak.

I can still do a pirouette-but not a double like I used to.  :\'( I did finish second in the dance portion of a talent show way back in the dark ages. I really do miss it and would love to get back into it but transportation is a problem for me.

A guilty pleasure if there ever was one!  I was 10 1/2 at the time, a bit old for Sesame Street - but fortunately a younger sibling was in that "sweet spot", so I watched Sesame Street to be "supportive"  ;)  Loved "Rubber Ducky"...

I sometimes watched Sesame Street in the late 70s even though I was grown, because it featured singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie during that period, who I had already been a big fan of for years. Aside from children's songs on the show, she occasionally sang a song from one of her actual records, if it was mild enough to translate to the children's format. In one (now) legendary episode, she actually breastfed her baby on the show. It was handled absolutely beautifully. That type of thing would NEVER happen now. Or, if it did, a whole big hoo-hah would be made of it with disclaimers, and some self-righteous Oprah-like celebrity announcing how "groundbreaking" it is to see it on TV, and how "natural" it SHOULD be considered. WELL, Sesame Street just treated it as a natural thing in the first place with no to-do at all. See what I mean about how cool and open-minded the 70s were?  ;)  8)

The 70's were cool and open-minded indeed!  8)

(Incidentally I don't think nursing was "controversial" until around the time the P.C. police went out in force...)

Buffy Sainte-Marie
"Mister Can't You See"
1972

This song actually scraped into the lower reaches of the Billboard Top 40 in May, 1972. It's as relevant today as it was then.

I thought having a naked Ernie in the tub was a bit weird. ;D
