    As per above. Most of my faves are from that time period too.

    That's funny man! Here's what I wrote around page 4 of this thread!...

    "From 65 to 75 I went from 4 to 14. Being a youngster that loved music since first realizing it power to move my spirit & emotion, I exposed myself to whatever I could. Whether over the radio in the car driving with Dad, as he listened to the hipper local channel, in the kitchen with Mom listening to more traditional songs of her youth or over my bedside radio (which I procured at a very early age) listening to the Solid Gold Hits over 66 WNBC or 77 WABC out of NYC,.. I lOVED it ALL.

    Despite this exposure, do to the constraints of my young age & non existent airplay of things that broke out of those formats, I basically went unexposed to anything New or Cool that couldn't make those NYC AM Stations playing the days current hits. Yet, there was enough awesomely creative, beautiful, inspiring & sometimes far out 'Hits' that made there way onto those AM 'Top 40' airwaves during those days.

    Some of the coolest songs I ever heard made their way to my ears & subsequently my heart over those AM airwaves. And I am forever grateful & happy these songs were a part of my life & my growing up."

    I like what I had to say there! LOL

    From 65-75 I was 1-11..... I was lucky to latch on to a few samples of music in general.
    Eventually, hearing everything from Burl Ives to Burt Bacharach, Barbara Streisand to Tom Jones, BTO to the Beatles, Deep Purple and eventually all my inspirations like Van Halen, Jimi, Rush etc. What more could a guy ask for?

    I started playing guitar in 1968. I learned my chops from the Rolling Stones, Animals, Eric Clapton (Cream, Blues Breakers), Hoyt Axton and Linda Ronstandt's music. For what is worth, the average gigs were paying around $225, at that time. With inflation, what would that come out to, today?

    Waddy Wachtel and Andrew Gold, were amazing guitar players. She also had top producers like JD Souther and Peter Asher, the original Austin Powers.

    Ya they put out some beautiful timeless works of musical artwork. Waddy helped form a lot of my approach to lead playing style. I loved his work with Lind, he gave here some rock'n kick that helped her songs appeal to a wider audience, like rockerz like me! LOL

    His playing was precise, a little tricky & creative, melodic & he knew when to get out after laying it down & building to a crescendo. Just a perfect musical compliment to Linda's talented, urethral & inspiring voice.

    Great timeless music that stands well on its own today from a magical era.

    I found her urethra to be absolutely ethereal, & her singing wasn't bad either.

    Back to original question: i have grown up with that music. I play it on bass, even dare to do it in a voice&bass duo.
    Do i need to say i like it?

    BTW: that were interesting times - fusion toward Jazz (Blood Sweat & Tears, Weather Report, Chase, Nektar), and fusion toward classics mainly driven by Jon Lord (not counting simple orchestration or using the material in the way Renaissance did)

    Bea- "Do I need to say i like it? "

    Nope. Some heavy hitters you mentioned there.

    Yeah man! That was a way cool design. The nass almost disappears in front of the identical patterned costume / outfit.

    Strangely enough, I was always befuddled at Ian's need to prance around in tights & old world nut protector!

    upload_2017-1-7_7-24-1.png

    It takes some real ballz to wear that in front of an audience.

    Love Chicago's Terry Kath on "25 to 4." Also would add arguably the greatest axe wielder of all time Alex Van Halen.
