The Best of Buffalo Springfield


Buffalo Springfield was an American-Canadian rock band formed in 1966 whose members included Richie Furay, Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Dewey Martin, Bruce Palmer, Jim Messina, Ken Koblun, and Jim Fielder which combined rock, folk, and country music. The band released the political anthem “For What It’s Worth”.

The band was plagued by infighting, drug-related arrests, and line-up changes that led to its disbanding after two years. Three albums were released under its name, but many demos, studio outtakes, and live recordings remained and were issued in the decades that followed.

Sweet (also referred to as The Sweet) were a British rock band that rose to worldwide fame in the 1970s as a prominent glam rock act.

Sweet were formed in 1968 and achieved their first hit “Funny Funny” in 1971. During 1971 and 1972, their musical style followed a marked progression from the bubblegum pop style of “Funny Funny” to a more hard rock style supplemented by a striking use of high-pitched backing vocals. The band achieved notable success in the UK charts, with thirteen Top 20 hits during the 1970s alone.

I’m So Dizzy


MeDance

My mother made me take dance as a child. I didn’t really like it. Okay, I hated it and made it through three, maybe four performances. However, I do remember one year there was a Looney Toons theme and I was okay with that, even though you can’t tell from the picture above!! We danced to Dizzy and our character was Taz. I used to practice in our living room since my dad had the single and would make him play it over and over as I spun and spun and spun.

The You I Need

Stand By Your Man


I’ve probably mentioned that I’m not a fan of country music a bunch, but I actually need to take that back. Even though there’s at least one day a month when I have a burst of 60’s / 70’s female country singers, I seemed to have forgotten about them! Dolly, Loretta and Tammy get me through those days when I’m not feeling quite so bad ass!

Virginia Wynette Pugh, known professionally by her stage name Tammy Wynette, (May 5, 1942 – April 6, 1998) was an American country music singer-songwriter and one of country music’s best-known artists and biggest-selling female singers.

Wynette was called the “First Lady of Country Music”, and her best-known song, “Stand by Your Man”, was one of the best-selling hit singles by a woman in the history of country music. Many of her hits dealt with classic themes of loneliness, divorce, and the difficulties of man-woman relationships. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Wynette charted 23 No. 1 songs. Along with Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton, she is credited with having defined the role of women in country music during the 1970s.
