    I present you Willy Hutch. Disco used to have Soul. When it lost Soul it became proto-House and proto-Electro.



    There was also more to Marvin Gaye than he was known for. "T Plays It Cool" is a good start.

    Two very early concerts for me back in the day (70's)

    Sly and the Family Stone concert outside a Roller Rink (no not derby) in Shickshinny, PA. We waited two hours for him to show up in a dense cloud if ya know what I mean.

    James Gang concert - 1971 or so in NE PA. Fantastic guitar work by Joe Walsh (Eagles member for the not so old). This was the tour after recording their Rides Again album featuring Funk #49, an anthem for the day for sure. Great to see Joe rocking out on top of the piano.

    Another great early 70s concert by Savoy Brown- after the Raw Sienna album- Jazzy, funky, Santana like rock with scary Needle and Spoon song to typify the era.

    And to top off some of the early '70s , Pennsylvania's own version of Woodstock. Yes, a 2 day concert event held in 1972 called Concert 10. Me and a few friends got mellow and braved the huge traffic delays to join 200,000 friends to hear some of the coolest bands of the day including:

    Cactus
    Edgar Winter
    Emerson, Lake, and Palmer
    Faces, w/ Rod Stewart
    Humble Pie
    J. Giels Band
    Three Dog night


    Boy did my head hurt after that!

    I sometimes wish I was there. I can only be grateful for the good recordings that have survived.

    My first rock concert: Jethro Tull. They were playing stuff from Aqualung, so I guess it was 1971.

    My second was Hawkwind.

    The 70's carried many great types of music:

    Reggae/Ska (Marley, Selecters)
    Outlaw/Bandit rock (Eagles, America)
    Glam rock (Bowie, TRex)
    Soul (Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Staple Sisters)
    Funk (Parliament, Sly)
    Disco (Donna Summer, Michael Jackson)
    Southern Rock (Lynyrd Skynyrd, CCR)
    Country rock (Glen Campbell, Kris Kristopherson)
    Punk (Ramones, Iggy Pop, Clash)
    Rap (Grand Master Flash. Blondie)
    New Wave (Cars, Police)
    And even soundtracks as pop music (John Williams)

    Sure there are more aim missing...anybody care to add?

    So much good stuff in many different decades. Some from the 70's I like.

    A lot of the sixties actually happened in the seventies.

    Anyway, all mine did, being a late developer.

    There's a ridiculous amount of great 70s music, I'd probably choose it over the 60s or 80s if someone made me.

    I was mostly familiar with late mid-to-late 70s punk & post-punk The Jam, Joy Division, The Ramones, Buzzcocks...







    but lately have been finding more traditional classic rock like the Rolling Stones, Patti Smith...
