Speaking of 1970, try Spirit - Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus. Great album - it holds up very well today - many excellent cuts. Give it at least a 45 second listen!

I got 16 of 24


I think you've just elevated this thread to new levels.  Music quiz!
 
I got 20 out of 24.
 
I goofed on the name of the last one in the 1960s.  I called it something else.  I missed the first one in the 1970s.  And I missed the first and fourth in the 1990s.
 
I knew the fourth in the 1990s, but couldn't think of the name until after I saw it. :(

I've never really heard anything by Spirit, outside of I Got A Line On You. And of course Taurus (the song Led Zeppelin "lifted" for Stairway).



Based on this album, I can tell that's my loss.

I'll definitely have to look up more of their discography. Thanks!

This one I got 21 out of 30.  Some are pretty difficult.

Same, got 21 out of 30.

 

I recognized most of them, but completely blanked on some of the artists.

You're listening to interesting music today. ;)

 

Truthfully though, it's a fascinating lecture.  Thanks for posting!

That is also the only thing I knew about Spirit.

 

It would be impossible to figure out but I'm curious. How much music has slipped through the cracks that I would be interested in.

That's a very good point.  And strangely enough, I think the talk on the Luftwaffe that Kliegmann posted above talks about that dilemma in some detail.
 

The lecturer mentions the "Curse of the Grand Narrative" and the "Tyranny of the Recent".  And how those two misconceptions shape public opinion over time.  Especially when you start to lose the people who actually lived through the time periods in question.  The grand narrative removes all the messy complicated details in the interest of making things easy to understand.  And we all tend to over emphasis the recent stuff on our radar because that's the closest material to our current reality.  It's a very good point.

 

For example, two common music myths which betray the grand narrative, combined with the push for the recent:

 

Myth #1 - Van Halen invented tapping.

Myth #2 - Jimmy Paige was the first person to use a bow on a guitar for Rock Music.

 

You can already see this coming...  Eddie never claimed to have invented tapping.  He just modified it for himself and his own playing style.  And Jimmy Paige (like a lot of other things) borrowed the bow idea from Eddie Paige of The Creation.

 

 

 

In the context of music, this helps explain why radio and commercials and tv and movies and other aspects of media seem to push the same bands with the same songs again and again and again and again.  With no exploration of genres.  No deep cuts off of well known albums, let alone any air time of lesser known gems off of little known albums.  And no attempt to explore the greater tapestry of Rock Music.  And as a result, you lose a lot of really great bands.

Love Spirit, SRV.

 

New Brit Band Wolf Alice, just about every song they do is a different genre. Special, watch for them.

Thanks Lip. I like her voice (but too much reverb in Planet Hunter IMO, couldn't understand the lyrics).

This one has a sort of Cranberries flavor:

Watching the finger work of the guitar got me to thinking about Sierra Hotel guitarists. Who do you think fit the category? (There, of course, can't be a BEST!, but there are quite a few that dazzle me).

 

This guy may not be one of the obvious picks but give it a listen and check out more of his work:

 

Certainly I have more candidates but I'd like to hear your picks.
