Give me some ideas for 70’s rock to download. I have Lynard Skynard, Queen, Led Zep,Fleetwood Mac, etc. Give me an idea?
Steve Miller Band
Creedence Clearwater Revival
All the Beatles, as solo acts (Paul McCartney and Wings, Ringo Starr, John Lennon, George Harrison)
Live at the Fillmore East by the Allman Brothers
Cant’ Buy a Thrill, Katy Lied, Pretzel Logic & Aja by Steely Dan
Band of Gypsys by Jimi Hendrix
the Cars’ first album (forget the title)
Workingman’s Dead & American Beauty – the Grateful Dead
Abraxas by Santana
Live at the Fillmore East 1971 – Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention
Something/Anything? – Todd Rungren
damn near anything Van Morrison did during the '70’s
Born to Run, Darkness on the Edge of Town & The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle by Bruce Springsteen
Those are albums. If we’re talking about individual songs, I would suggest:
“Paradise by the Dashboard Light” by Meatloaf & a cast of thousands
“Blinded by the Light” – Manfred Mann Earth Band
“Jet” – by an obscure gentleman named Paul McCartney and his band Wings
“Runnin’ on Empty” & “Cocaine” – Jackson Browne
“Layla” – Derek and the Dominoes
“Every Picture Tells a Story” – Rod Stewart
“More Than a Feeling” – Boston
The Grateful Dead were huge in the 70s
have those, thanks anyway though
thanks guys, that will keep me busy for 30 minutes,
have every Beatles song made, along w/ solo acts, want some good stuff like that though
lol frampton comes alive, how could I forget
New York Dolls
anything but disco.
Aerosmith, Chapter I
Genesis (from 1970 to 1977 only)
These are the reasons I miss the 70s.
Genisis, damn forgot thanks man
Power Pop: Raspberries, Big Star, Todd Rundgren, Electric Light Orchestra
Punk: Television, New York Dolls, Stooges, RAMONES, Patti Smith
Commercially Successful: Steely Dan, Supertramp, Styx, Kansas, Journey, REO Speedwagon, Grand Funk Railroad
Decent Disco/Funk: Parliament/Funkadelic, Chic, Blondie
Artsy: Yes, Genesis (w/Peter Gabriel), Alan Parsons Project
Early ZZ top
Townes Van Zandt
J. Geils Band
Most of those Power Pop acts consider Paul McCartney to be part of the Holy Trinity, so if you like Macca, check them out.
For 1970’s music nobody’s mentioned yet, I suggest:
–anything by Stevie Wonder (with the possible exception of Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants) who, artistically, had an incredible run during the decade;
–any good Philly Soul (e.g., O’ Jays, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, Spinners, etc.). This was dance music before disco came along and removed the soul;
–“What’s Going On” by Marvin Gaye;
–“Superfly” soundtrack by Curtis Mayfield; and
–The Clash (their debut album, “Give 'Em Enough Rope,” and “London Calling” were all released during the decade).
Blood on the Tracks - Bob Dylan
Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
Let us not forget. . .
Frank Zappa (Of the 13 albums he released in the 70s, the gott haves are OVERNITE SENSATION 1973, APOSTROPHE 1974, ZAPPA IN NEW YORK 1978, SHEIK YERBOUTI 1979, and JOE’S GARAGE 1979)
Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen, Captain Beefheart (TROUT MASK REPLICA should be mandatory for every CD collection), Tom Waits, Elvis Costello,
As already mentioned, The Grateful Dead, although it should be noted that their studio albums are really just demos, and their true musical genius for improvisation comes through only on live albums and concert bootlegs. Must haves: Europe 72, Blues for Allah, Wake of the Flood, From The Mars Hotel, and all of the Dick’s Picks releases.
And I can’t believe nobody has mentioned Led Zeppelin!
Earth Wind and Fire
Sly and the Family Stone
