    This man gave a leg up for so many - Steve Miller No. 5 - still one of my favourite sides.

    Disco was/is the perfect dance music, used to dance the night away. Jazz Funk got a bad press as well - why. Grover Washington - check out - Live At The Bijou, if you can't get off that energy, it's time for a bullet in the back of the neck.

    As much as I adore James Brown's legacy, for that raw Funk feeling you had the (Funky) Meters. We owe a lot to that band...

    Hardly a mention for the 70s' singer/songwriters. The 60s' kicked everything off but the real flowering only began at the end of the 60s and continued on then with the 70s'.

    The Floyd kickstarted ambient, way ahead of it's time. Bowie another trailblazer, once spent a day working with him on a film set before he took off (67). No mention of Jackson Browne, Don McClean, Janis Ian, Joni Mitchells best work was in the 70s, Would seriously have loved to be at the gig in southern California where 'Shadows and Light' was recorded and Jean-Michel Jarres in Houston. Incredible organisation to pull together music/light show and pyrotechnics.

    3 gigs I should have gone to and havn't got a clue why I didn't - David Bowie at Sussex Uni, same place Sonny Terry & Brownie Mcghee and King Crimson at the Dome, Brighton.

    Gigs from the 70s' that stand out (there were so many) Osibisa (dropped 2 tabs of wonderful, California Sunshine). Michael Nesmith, solo with a 12 string guitar. Third World - the best live sound I ever heard. That was just one Reggae gig of 8 in the autumn of 78 - Burning Spear, Dennis Bovell, UB40,Steel Pulse, Peter Tosh, Max Romeo & The Upsetters, Merger and in 79 at the Ahoy Halle -in Rotterdam - Bob Marley, 3 weeks later he was gone.

    Prog-Rock/Heavy Metal/Disco/Reggae/Singer/Songwriters, tailing off with Glam/Rock and Punk, neither of which did anything for me, especially glam/rock. With a few exceptions since then, Ambient alone has been truly new and interesting, it's all visual b/s. now - esta la vida.

    I think I've only owned one Steve Miller LP, and, although at least one of the songs on it became well known, the album seemed to be a little obscure.

    It is: Recall The Beginning, A Journey From Eden. I think it is a really remarkable record, and all of it is beautiful music.

    I don't understand your comment - there is absolutely nothing oobscure about Steve Miller No.5 or Fly like an Eagle - check them out and come back.

    I think my choice of word was very bad. I meant that the album is not very well known!

    I love all the songs on it.

    When I bought this used on eBay for the cost of 2 or 3 brand new CDs, I knew it was hopeless and all was lost.

    If this isn't 'awkward' I don't know what is. Great voice though.

    There is nothing awkward about this song. It is both seventies and timeless (yes that Hammond organ dates it a little) but the song is like Beethoven's 6th Symphony. So soothing...
