The aim of this book is to provide a complete handbook of information and opinion about the history of the music of the 1970s. There are over 1000 entries on the bands, musicians, songwriters, producers and record labels of this decade, everyone who had any significant impact on the development of rock and pop music. From the stars who, unlike Hendrix, Joplin and Morrison, survived the sixties only to be dudded as dinosaurs, to the angry reactions of punk and the new wave and the sounds of glam rock and disco, this encylopaedia aims to answer any query about any aspect of seventies music. As well as the giants of the decade, such as Queen, Abba and Fleetwood Mac, the book also includes those artists who only flourished briefly.The song reached number 2 in the UK chart, spearheading a run which continued almost uninterrupted until the end of the ... acALBUMS: l0cc (UK 1973)** *, Sheet Music (UK 1974) ***, The Original Soundtrack (Mercury 1975) ***, How Dare You ...
