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.

So is another male singer, Aaron Neville, who didn't really have notable hits in the 1970s. However, he did team up with his brothers in the band The Neville Brothers and they released a few albums, the first of which came out in the latter part of the decade.

Indeed - that's exactly how it went.  Smokey released the touching "Sweet Harmony" around the announcement; it was dedicated it to his now ex-bandmates.  Say, why don't I post it?  (This live version seems slightly slowed from the studio version, but works nicely.)
