Not to listen to, but for exercise there's nothing like it.

It does have a tendency to make people run....far away.

At the time, Neil Bogart was still the head of Casablanca Records, so it would have been the 1976-1979 timeframe. I remember this because when I asked for a raise in the art gallery, HR told me I had to get approval from Neil.

The album was released in 1976, though.
In my 1976 it would have been a 33 1/3 rpm LP, like George Harrison's LP "33 1/3" that was one of my favorites that year.

I was listening to Toys in the Attic, of course.

I was pretty much a fixture at CBGB, Max's and a few other clubs when I took a leave of absence from college for the music scene in NYC.



Huge fan of Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers. He had a big New England cult following.



Have to disagree with you about Bruce Springsteen - he played at my college in Massachusetts in 1974. Four hour concert that I'll never forget. He brought Rock back down to earth and his lyrics were nothing short of poetry.



He brought Rock back down to earth again. Pink Floyd was very popular too. Not my taste. I really didn't love Fleetwood Mac. It was just impossible not to hear it in 1976. I like them more now.



The closest thing to Disco that I heard in 1976 on my campus was David Bowie's "Philadelphia Freedom" and "Young Americans", which I liked in spite of myself.



I remember that Spring driving home through three states those Young Americans ruled the airwaves. I didn't have a tape deck so I was hostage to the radio.



Also very popular but not released that year - The Who "Who's Next", Roxy Music - all albums, Jackson Brown The Grateful Dead, ELO, The Velvet Underground, Mott the Hoople older Bowie, Keith Jarrett, Larry Coryell (sp) John Coltrane The Art Ensemble of Chicago and more Jazz.



No one in my circle was really interested in old Beatles or Stones. I guess that was a quarter generation before us.

Many people covered "Road Runner" But, there's nothing like the original.

I don't really know why but I was really into the Beatles during this time. (I was 14-15). Very few of my friends were. I wore out the White Album.

Many years later reconnecting with old friends and the Beatles being respected by everyone then it was one thing they all remembered about me. LOL

I had a friend in the '70s, a few years younger than me, just enough younger to have missed the Beatles, but she had grown up listening to her older brother's Beatles and Stones records. Thanks to him, by the time I met her she had every. single. one. of the Beatles' albums, including some European bootlegs, as well as all the post-Beatles' individual albums, including the ones that I didn't have (I worked for a living; I had to be selective in my record buying). So I spent that part of the '70s getting to hear a LOT of Wings, John Lennon, and Ringo, as well as George's albums that were the ones I bought whether I could afford them or not.

Good music.

Later I moved to Nashville, where my boyfriend of the time and I discovered and rediscovered a whole lot more, very different, but also very good music.

Oh yeah...followed shortly by Boston! I joined the USAF, purchased by first car and took my first steps towards a responsible life. But the music...the soundtracks of our lives...thatís what takes me back!

Was in the car a few weeks ago, flipping thru the Sirius XM stations, XM 2 I have presets for 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000. I hit the 70's, The DeFranco Family; Heartbeat - It's a Lovebeat was on; wiki says it came out in 1973, I was 8. When I put it on, it wasn't at the beginning but I was able to start singing where ever it started; couldn't believe I remembered all of the song from when I was 8! lol

After being a rabid teen rocker for the last half of the 60's, playing in a rock band & going to concerts by almost all of the big names monthly except the Beatles & The Doors... by 1976 I had tired of most of the new variations of R&R by then - I was listening to folk, blues, bluegrass, classic c&w, outlaw country, etc... I just looked at a list of the 120 "top songs" of 1976 & the only tunes I would listen to today: Fleetwood Mac & Boz, maybe some Eagles.

(I did develop a late affection for The Ramones around '77-78 but, to paraphrase Marlene Dietrich's comment about German music: a little Ramones goes a long way!)
