MA-98 - Defying Disco in the 70s

The world of 1970s pop music was much more than disco!  I know, I was there.  There was the wonderful mainstream stuff like Tracks 2 or 11 to oddball comedy like Tracks 7 or 14.  And then stuff with a serious message, like Tracks 1 or 23.  Draw your own conclusions about songs like Tracks 9, 10, or 21.




01 - Don't Dictate - Penetration   1977  (2:54)
02 - (They Long to Be) Close to You (album version) - Carpenters   1970  (4:32)

Regarding Track 6 -- did you know that Lulu and David Bowie were "an item" in the 1970s?  That's Bowie singing background and playing sax.

Great music can make for great reminiscences, or new memories!
