'Linda McCartney - Ram' ... huh? Pretty sure that was husband Paul's second solo album.

Wikipedia think it is a Paul & Lynda McCartney album and she is credited with co-writing 6 of the 12 tracks.

Some great ones in that line up, but here’s another correction:
4 Way Street was a CSN&Y album. ;-)
Some of the best live acoustic sounds ever recorded are on that record, by Young especially.

Yes, probably more than fifty Tears!


1971 -An exciting year for me. My own flat (albeit a West London hovel) a beautiful Swedish girlfriend. Saturdays in Kings Road.
the only albums there that resonated for me, was "Blue" by Joni Mitchell, and "If I could Only Remember My Name" by David Crosby.
I was reminded of that era by a long, frank and thorough documentary on Crosby last night, including much input by the man himself and acknowledging his many faults and failings.

Two comments on age and time. I am a late aged parent with one in college and twins in high school.

The parents are all digital but my daughter thinks the fruit crates of albums I have are neat. Most of my listening is robots feeding me new stuff based on history.

My kids will listen to things from this era where I smile for their interest but I am usually tired of hearing same stuff so many times in my life and tired of basic progressions.

Get my humor. Maybe I'm tired of I, IV, V blues and rock because of my own chronic mediocre skills. At a deeper level, I might be tired of my cohort overall - thus much of the music - for so many out of shape or near dead brains, bodies and ideas. I've got a problem being a kid stuck in a sexagenarian's body.

Lots of wonderful music on that list, but the one from 1971 that had the biggest impact on me wasn't listed: Little Feat's eponymously named first album.

I became fourteen that year. I was given my first guitar on the previous Christmas. It was the dawning of an age of excitement for me because I finally was able to make my own music. The following year 1972 contains some of my favorite music. What amazes me is how fresh and exciting some of that music still sounds to me.

And... three quarters of those bands and artists have lost members to mortality, many multiple members. There is only one member of Uriah Heep alive, Mick Box. Only two members of the Allman Brothers survive. Only the drummer of ELP made it. And the list goes on and on.

That was the year the John Denver released "Poems, Prayers, and Promises" with "Take Me Home, Country Roads" as the lead single. The cover photo with a Guild 12-string with only the MOP peak logo started me on a search for a Guild guitar that resulted in a 1969 D-35.

The biggest influence of those albums for me, albeit years after it was released, is Led Zeppelin IV. Masterpiece.

I'll also add Black Sabbath's Master of Reality.

Well that is quite a list, 1971 was memorable in that I graduated from University, early Summer, worked an awful but well paying temporary summer job (still in the U.K. at that time) then took a flight to Athens, then overnight ferry to the island of Crete and after a few weeks there another flight to Israel and another overnight hitchhike ride thru the Negev desert south to Eilat on the Red Sea where I lounged at the Peace Cafe and listened to many of these albums....

Looking at that list brings me to believe I like the music of the sixties more fondly as a whole. Man, I'm getting old.

I turned 16 in 1971, and that list is a wonderful generator of nostalgia and great memories to this old geezer! Is it just me, or did "pop/rock" music have so much more variety and great melodies than we hear from newer stuff today.

Same concept, differrent guy. 1971 - graduated from University in May. Worked a fun and well paying temporary summer job... then took a 45' sloop out to sea. Missed all the new music from September '71 to early '73.

What I remember from '71 is Intel...oh...and a girlfriend.....whew!

That's just an amazing list. Just another reminder that "The 60s" really didn't end until 1972 or so. For my taste, and that's obviously all it is, there was more good pop-rock-blues-R&B-jazz released from 1968-1972 than any other period of time. Jazz was better earlier, but there was a ton of innovation and fusion stuff happening in those years, with Miles, as usual, leading the way. I was too young to appreciate most of it at the time, I turned 9 in '68 and 13 in '72, so it took me a few or several more years to get into a lot of it. And there was plenty of great music released before and after that period. But there was SOOOOO much classic stuff released in those years, no other period ever came close...
