    Shadower Good evening Masterwordsmith

    Thanks for your feedback that you left on my site at The Path Less trodden. I am really pleased to find "Stuck In The 70s Vol. 1" much to your liking. There was much to like in the 70s. For some reason the movie "The Exorcist" comes to mind, and to me, Linda Blair aside, the scenes in the movie encapsulated many things about the 70s, ie the fashion, the hair, the politics. Funny too, I remembered so much about the 70s, considering a big part of the 70s was spent as a kid who chose to confront the dire poverty I was in, by hiding behind books (those days were Enid Blyton, Alfred Hitchcock, Biggles, hardy Boys/Nancy Drew etc etc) and also surprise surprise, MUSIC! The best present I had as a kid was a Panasonic cassette player, and boy did I wear it down time and again!
    The one regret I have was to not be musically trained, not a single instrument, not a single note!Sigh! This, of course I was determined not to deny my three kids the joy of music, so the two girls picked up violin, and the youngest boy guitar.
    I was also flabbergasted when you mentioned that those records you have bought ended up being thrown away:) They would have been worth a tidy sum as collectors' memorabilia, especially the original Beatles albums, they seemed to command a premium. Before I started my CD collection, I was into collecting LPs/records as well. Most of the nearly 1000 pieces I purchased in Australia, and I shipped them back to Malaysia, and last I recalled they are sitting in a dungeon somewhere......:)
    Sorry to hear that Robin Gibb's passing has hit so hard. Actually time has not been kind by dealing a one two punch as Donna Summer was gone too. I grew up listening a LOT to their music. There was a time in the late 70s whereby you turned on the radio and realised that The Bee Gees, Donna Summer ruled the airwaves together with Boney M and Abba.
    Anyway, enough of my rambling:) Why not celebrate by listening to their music? Allow me to guide you to some links for the following:

    1) Stuck in the 70s Volume 2 can be found here:
    http://roadlesstraveledindeed.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/stuck-in-70s-volume-two.html
    or the parallel link:
    http://pathtroddennot.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/stuck-in-70s-volume-two.html
    2) Have you listened before to a rare under-rated Bee Gees album released in 1981 called " Living Eyes"? If not you are in for a treat as personally I rate that album as one of their strongest, but not necessarily their commercial best. Have a listen to one of the album's strongest track "Paradise" here:

    Hope you enjoy the music Masterwordsmith. Drop by and say Hi when you can!
