A few enjoyable 70's songs ( well i enjoyed them anyway ) that you never hear being played on radio etc. Mainly MOTR types, so please feel free to add anything you wish to, of any genre.

Of course you never heard them played because they're crap. End of.

Great song! I thought the Ace song was the Eagles all these years. Nice to get that straight.

Here's one:



All the ones I find are pretty common:



This one is common but I like the legs in the video:

Eric Clapton thought the song by Ace was crap also.

Yes they were great songs, unless you lived through the 70s, you wouldn't understand the music scene.

There was quite a variety of types of music, all played on the radio one after the other. It was a period where dozens of new records were released each week.

It was a time when you could have a Group of young black or white kids, an old crooner from the 40s/50s, a heavy rock band, country music hit and an instrumental song, ALL in the top ten at the same time.

Some examples...





















And this is just a tiny selection from the early 70s, that were regularly played in the day.

Albeit, this is the type of music we heard in Oz (as well as our local artists), that was more like the UK scene, perhaps the USA had a slightly different scene with all the black music and country music....depending on where you lived.

I could probably feature 1000s more from this period if required
....

I guess it depends on what part of the world you were in at the time. Back then we had a local country station, a college station that play mostly classical and a near-by rock station that played mostly mild-hard rock and occasionally disco. We mostly heard of bands not in the Top 40 by going to the local record shop. I loved going through the cut-out bin. Now we have a local station that plays the 70s stuff again and it's pretty popular.

Everyone I think of you
Sniff and the tears - Drivers seat
Anything by Jethro Tull - because all you ever hear is Aqualung or Locomotive breath
Rainbow - Since you’ve been gone
Nick Gilder - Hot child in the City
Bob Welch - Ebony Eyes
Steve Martin and the Toot Uncommons - King Tut !
Grandmaster Flash and the Funkedelics - Flashlight
Boomtown Rats - anything really because you NEVER hear the Rats
Boz Skaggs - you never hear Boz Skaggs
M - Pop Muzik
Madness - one step beyond
The untouchables - Eye Spy for the FBI or Free Yourself
Billy Joel - Rosalinda’s Eyes
Springsteen and the E Street band - Rosalita
Doug and the Slugs - Too Bad

Too many to count or imbed ! I’m off to the man cave for a vinyl disc binge ! Cheers !

I am a Boz Scaggs fan, have been since the Silk Degrees album in 1976. We saw him in concert several years ago, I had no idea he was such a fantastic blues player.

Fun fact - I worked with his sister for a long time. I waited until we were both gone from there before I asked if the rumor that she had a famous brother was true. She just grinned and said yes. But he lost his home in Napa in 2017 during those wildfires. I think his winery too if I remember right. She said he was on tour at the time and had no way to save anything. All of his handwritten lyrics from fifty years of songwriting, gone.

My original point was supposed to be that I hear Lido Shuffle on the radio every now and then.

This one brings back memories:



A lot of the songs I posted I haven't heard since the 70s!



I actually saw Renaissance in a bar in New Jersey in the early 80s. Annie Haslam was 10 feet away from me singing this song:

Love this! Thanks to all. I was born in '74 but I recognize how much this music was an influence on the rock music I enjoyed growing up. Yes, I am a metal fan, but I know Slayer wasn't created in a vacuum!

About time someone called down some funk. Was thinking I was going to have to drop some education on some people. Might want to add War to the mix. And it would a bit later before the transformative nature of Sugarhill Gang and Lakeside would firmly establish hip hop, both were 70’s bands.
