While looking for a beat that I had made to embed in the previous post (I didn't find it), I ran across this email from my brother Bill. Here it is posted in its entirety - it used to be linked to a Rhapsody list that is no longer there, so the links below won't work. If I was hardcore, I'd link to every song he mentioned. But I'm not hardcore and I'm also not Google. Go look for these yourself, yo. I'm also too lazy to change the background color from the original email. But anyway, for folks my age and older, some of these will be a major blast from the past. Fun stuff - check it.
HAVE YOU NO FEAR? TEST YOURSELF . . . AGAINST SOME OF THE GREATEST ATROCITIES THE SEVENTIES HAVE TO OFFER. AN ENDURANCE TEST THAT ONLY THOSE WITH SUPERHUMAN CONSTITUTIONS CAN HOPE TO COMPLETE. Actually, there's some good, some bad, and some ugly here. I'll let you decide which is which. This is the source playlist for my ongoing seventies series . . . 8 hours of hits, misses, and obscurities, with no artist headlining twice (yeah, I know, differentiating between Michael Hurley and The Holy Modal Rounders is splitting hairs). Workin' the Seventies part two is already 1/4 of the way done, still with no artist repeated (and still no Boston or Billy Joel - you have to draw the line somewhere). Expect CDs 4 & 5 of the seventies series in September, if you prefer to deal with the "me" decade in more discreet bites. - Bill
