all in the thread title.

Have a real soft spot for the 70s. whether it's rock and all the strands that go with that. Folk, electronic, funk/soul etc. For my ears the 70s were the most fruitful. Here's a thread to maybe highlight some gems that might not be that well known from that era.

Mentioned this album in another thread recently, Ame Debout by Catherine Ribeiro + Alpes. Listened again this morning, so bloody good. her voice is absolutely amazing. French album from 71. ticks the folk/prog boxes.

LOVE Catherine Ribeiro + Alpes - also check out Paix from 1972 (Julian Cope does has a great article on it here: The Book of Seth: Catherine Ribeiro+Alpes — Paix)

the 4th Chairmen of the Board album, which really bears no relation to any of their hits


the entire thing includes half of the P-Funk crew but most importantly Eddie Hazel and Bernie Worrell doing some great guitar and keyboard freaking out
