Rick Keene Music Scene Presents; ‘ This ‘ 70’s Show!

The 1970’s were a strange decade but a good one.

Mood Rings, Pet Rocks, Disco, CB Radios – it was a definable decade of different dimensions.

Leisure suits, shag carpeting and waterbeds. Trends which were all the rage while listening to The Carpenters, Heart, The Eagles, Peter Frampton  and hundreds of bands and solo artists who made their mark in that ten year period.

It was also a strange decade for commercials. Whether it was Barbara Streisand ( yes – Barbara Streisand) doing politically incorrect TV spots or little kids singing about Bologna, the 1970’s were – at the very least, entertaining.

Please listen below to some tunes and some clips from the ‘decadently’ delicious decade known for ‘Glam’ and ‘Punk’ Rock and everything in between.

Randy Bachman – Taking Care of Business … Again!

At one point in time – Randy Bachman was one half of a songwriting tandem which outsold The Beatles and Rolling Stones. Not bad for a boy / man from Winnipeg, Manitoba.

 

The Guess Who – Randy’s former ‘super – group’; responsible for many musical memories which are etched firmly into the subconscious of the 1960’s and early 70’s music lover.

Randy Bachman has a new album.

Heavy Blues is the name of the disc and  it includes several well known special guests. Some of whom – more than familiar to Canadian music fans.
