i don't post as much pink floyd as i used to and i haven't listened to them in a long time, but this band will always have a special place in my heart because they were the first 70s band i was obsessed with
South Shore Commission was an R&B group formed in Chicago, Illinois who climbed to the top of the disco chart in 1975 with the single "Free Man" and crossed over to the pop and R&B charts ( #9 R&B that same year.). "Train Called Freedom" was one of the 3 pop chart crossovers from their self titled album. Although not making much of a dent on that chart, the single is an extremely joyful and uptempo album cut 👌💃❤
The definitive Led Zeppelin album. I wore out two 8-track tapes (for those who remember) then got it when it came out on CD. The songs still take me back to the early 70's, the best years of my life. The voice of Robert Plant, the drumming of John Bonham, and the guitar skills of Jimmy Page, is unmatched by any group before or since!!
I didn’t get to post that photo yesterday, so I‘m one day late; On 8th December 1980, John Lennon was shot dead outside of his hotel. This is the last photo that was taken of John Lennon. His murderer Mark Chapman standing next to him, asked him to sign a vinyl. Hours later, John was shot by Chapman.
On this day forty-four years ago, December 9, 1974, George Harrison's Dark Horse album was released. I bought this album at the tender age of 12, Beatles freak that I was (and still am). Little did I know at the time that George Harrison & Co. would be appearing in concert right here in Tucson, AZ! I must have known! After all, I listened to the radio 24/7 and probably heard the announcements. I also knew that my being 12 years old meant that I was too young to go anyway (at least in my parents' eyes). I'd attend my very first concert the next year in 1975 when Elton John came to town. As for the Dark Horse album, it isn't my favorite George Harrison album but it's an enjoyable one. My favorite tracks are the title track "Dark Horse," "Simply Shady," "So Sad," "Far East Man" and "It Is 'He' (Jai Sri Krishna)." Wikipedia: Dark Horse is the fifth studio album by English rock musician George Harrison, released on Apple Records on December 9, 1974 as the follow-up to Living In The Material World. Although keenly anticipated on release, Dark Horse is associated with the controversial North American tour that Harrison staged with Indian classical musician Ravi Shankar in November and December that year. This was the first US tour by a member of the Beatles since 1966, and the public's nostalgia for the band, together with Harrison contracting laryngitis during rehearsals and choosing to feature Shankar so heavily in the program, resulted in scathing concert reviews from some influential music critics.
The album features an array of guest musicians – including Tom Scott, Billy Preston, Willie Weeks, Andy Newmark, Jim Keltner, Ringo Starr, Gary Wright and Ron Wood – and produced two hit singles, "Dark Horse" and "Ding Dong, Ding Dong". It showed Harrison moving towards the funk and soul musica genres. The album was not well received by the majority of critics at the time.
Speaking of George Harrison, Govinda's will be having a George Harrison Memorial Tribute event tonight from 5 - 7pm. See the photo for more information.
“I miss Fred every day and I always will. He was just part of my mental wallpaper. He was just great to be around and was very generous, kind, witty and funny. He was as colorful off stage in some ways, but he was also very shy— much more than anybody imagined.” - Roger Taylor on Freddie Mercury [Edinburgh News, 1999]

they’re so soft I can’t, and I’m not even a romantic (I also think they were kind of the most natural couple on the show but it might just be me)
