What songs from the 1970’s are on your playlist?

The 1970's were a great time for me, full of wonderful music to go along with the best decade of my life. So many songs to choose from, but I will start with one of my all time fav Fleetwood Mac songs "Go your own way" from the incredible Rumours album, recorded in 1977. I am pretty sure I wore this album out!!

Late last year, I decided to take the streaming music plunge and got a sub to Apple Music.  I haven't always had the time to keep up with all of the artists that I liked, or buy every album/cassette/cd. That was impossible. I usually stuck to greatest hits and compilations to get the good stuff. This opened up a whole new world of music that I hadn't heard. This one was relatively unknown in the US at the time.


Lonesome Crow  -  Scorpions   1972


This was their first album. They were just learning to write in English, so the words are sometimes a little odd, but still good. Their lead guitarist was a 16 year-old Michael Schenker (younger brother of founding member, Rudolph) who went on to be known for his time with UFO. This album has a very psychedelic rock feel, especially the last track, Lonesome Crow, which is instrumental. 


So much fun making these discoveries!
