Today is favorite songs or musicians. These are my favorites from the 70's
Linda Ronstadt: From Distant Drums through to her big band era songs I've got just about all of her albums. She came to Albuquerque for Halloween in 1979 and came out in a skeleton outfit. Looked absolutely gorgeous. I was newly married and didn't have a penny to my name. Really miss not seeing her in person.
Bob Segar and the Silver Bullet Band: Old Time Rock n Roll, Night Moves, crank the sound to the max and jump to the music. Gets the heart pumping.
George Strait: I have everything he's put out in albums or box sets. I could listen to Amarillo By Morning, The Chair, Adilaida, and all the rest all day long. His farewell concert, I did get a little tired of The Cowboy Rides Away. He started in in 1978.
Moody Blues: Knights in White Satin was the theme song of my high school prom senior year (Yeah Del Norte Knights). Listened to them many an all night study session in college.
Lobo: Me and You and a Dog Named Boo, Midnight Ghost, A Simple Man. What a voice and great music. All he needed was his guitar on a lot of songs.
Bread: Just a great band with a good mix of rock and soft rock. David Gates had one of the greatest voices of the 70's. Lost Without Your Love is the most soulful song of all time. If and Diary are true classics.
Olivia Newton-John: What a voice and what a face. When her first album came out all the guys in my dorm drooled over her. Me included. Her song Have You Ever Been Mellow, had every red blooded American man saying "Yes."
Chicago: I'm a Man Yes I Am, Do You Know What Time it is?
Neil Diamond: Song Sung Blue, Cracklin Rose, Jonathan Livingston Seagull, and of course Sweet Caroline.
Partridge Family: Point Me in the Direction of Albuquerque, I think I Love You.
Barbara Streisand: The Way We Were, Evergreen, Memory (from Cats).
Diana Ross: Touch Me in the Morning, Sound Tract to Lady Sings the Blues.
Jim Croce: Time in a Bottle, Bad Bad Leroy Brown, Workin at the Carwash Blues.
The Carpenters: We've Only Just Begun, I'm on the Top of the World.
Iron Butterfly: One hit wonder was Inagoddadavida. Love that drum solo.
