I always felt that 1970 would be my favorite year to see live shows...ABB with Duane, Fleetwood Mac with Green, Jimi, a great year for the Floyd, etc

The Viet Nam war peaked, began to recede....many friends coming home, most shot up, psychologically damaged. Some not coming home. War is hell. All war.

Civil rights laws passed in the late '60's taking hold. Political, socialogocal landscape changing.

Take a look at that top 100 songlist. Quite lame, IMHO. Mostly pop--really light pop.
This is the musical environment into which Duane Allman took his band. Reminds me of the environment into which the Beatles arrived. Many were ready for something of substance musically.

1970 also saw dramatic growth in FM radio. More stations, more cars and home radios sold with FM capability. Still not mainstream at all, but another factor in the evoloution of the culture in which we live.

Not really too many lame songs on there for me Randy, 12 years old in 1970, just recently had begun buying albums. Some great songs and artists on that list, John Lennon, Temptations, Sly, Guess Who, CCR, The Beatles, on and on. A few lame ones, (really couldn't stand In The Summertime, heard that at lunch yesterday in a fast food joint) but all have great memories for me. Puts a smile on my face.

I agree Wayne, I was 14...I liked most of those songs. Gave me a lot of good memories.

As a matter of fact I still like a lot of them.

I guess we all have our opinions on what is lame and what is not.

I love The ABB and the bands that were like them. But they are not the only ones that gave me musical pleasure.

I used to love the Jackson 5. Unfortunetly, I have been so turned off by Michael Jackson and his weirdo ways that it even affects the way I hear the Jackson 5's music. Very sad because he could really belt it out as a little kid.

I do generally love Motown music though.

I guess you found a country with no extradition treaty with the US.


I missed this first time around.... actually, I was protecting our country from Communism by spending time in the Navy in South America and sampling some of the local agriculture

The Jackson 5 were great Pop music. I like you, got turned off by the "freak" years of Michael.

I watched some videos of them when they were young. Michael looked like such a cool little Dude...what in the hell happened to him ?

I turned 14 in September of 1970. What a wonderful and hard time to grow up. The music was great (I had been introduced to the ABB by my older brother), the Viet Nam War and politics weren't. Loving that at least BB King made it in the top 100 (#98). He's real close to number 1 in my book.
