Some Pre-Punk Cultural Detritus
Because it's my birthday and I'm feeling self-indulgent (-pity?), I want to play DJ some more. Here's a set of the kind of stuff we listened to so as to avoid the Scylla of "prog" and the Charybdis of disco, the hammer of the Osmonds and the anvil of the Southern "boogieocracy", while we were waiting for punk[?] and hoping not to get drafted. Some music in the Seventies didn't completely suck (no Big Star or Motown in this set). Enjoy.
