Everyone has a right to their opinion, and on taste there is really no “right or wrong “ answer.,,

But NOTHING from the 60s ? Motown ? The Beatles? Bob Dylan? Otis Redding ? Aretha ? Miles Davis? Phil Spector ? James Brown ? Burt Bacharach? John Coltrane? Herb Alpert ? Jefferson Airplane ? Buck Owens ? Wilson Pickett ? The Beach Boys? The Kinks ? BB King ? Really, absolutely NOTHING?

As much as Aretha Frankin’s records were great in the 1960s, I think her work from the early 1970s was the pinnacle of her career.

And Elvis was probably at his very best as a SINGER, from the late 60s into the mid 70s, up until his death in 1977 actually

If that poster is a fan of 1990s dance music such as house or techno, then there's not really anything in the 1960s or before that qualifies. There are some remix albums of music from that time.

Don't agree with Layla, it's good but drifted away from his bluesier stuff.I know he was in the midst

of a passionate attraction to 'someone's wife".

Do you know who "Layla" was??

[Edited 1/10/21 16:13pm]

Go listen to the “Layla” album again... it’s very bluesy, with elements is soul music and gospel. Clapton’s guitar interplay with Duane Allman is breathtaking, and Bobby Whitlock’s vocals and keyboard playing adds an interesting color. “Layla” was the name of the love interest in a Persian poem from (I believe) the 14th Century. Clapton related the poem to his (then) unrequited love for Patti Harrison, the wife of his friend George Harrison

I actually have the album and it was in rotation during Christmas week @ our home. I do like it and

know he was longing for Patti, etc. Love Duane Allman as well.

I think I might be a person who enjoys the earlier works of most musicians, including Prince. I know this applies to the Eagles, Beatles, Stones, The Who, for me as well. Sometimes their later work can be more critically acclaimed, such as "Hotel CA" for the Eagles or Sgt Pepper, Beatles, but I rarely like it as much sonically.

Elvis got better though and I agree he was best when he was more mature.

From the people I've been around like relatives and the other kids I went to school with, most of them primarily only listened to one type or genre of music. Or the music was kinda similar in sound like gospel, blues, & R&B. I know people who only listen to rap. I have relatives who don't listen to any secular music, only gospel & spirituals. People also tend to own more music by their own race/ethnicity than other ones. Like Mexican artists tend to sell more to Mexicans than to white people or Chinese people. Indians are more likely to have Bollywood music than black people.

There’s a lot of truth to that... But I guess because I live in a very diverse environment, I have seen so many examples to the contrary. I knew a Black guy who mainly listened to English Prog Rock bands like Genesis, Yes, King Crimson. I knew a Southern White woman who knew more about Latin music than probably 90% of Hispanics. And I personally am of Caribbean background , and when I lived in West Indian neighborhoods, you would be shocking how many people from this culture LOVE Country music!

If you look at the Top 50 highest selling artists in history, the majority are white males and mainly rock n roll music. They are also the ones who get talked about the most in mainstream music magazines like The Beatles or Led Zeppelin. Elvis Presley sold way more than Little Richard, Chuck Berry, & Fats Domino. Pat Boone sold more & charted higher at the time doing the same songs. So that basically says that white people will more likely buy a white artist and since they're probably the largest buyers of records of course white artists would be the highest sellers. Also in the USA black artists of the past had to "crossover" to Top 40 radio stations. They didn't often get put on the cover of mainstream magazines. It says something that Charley Pride was the only black artist to have success in country music for decades until recent years. There were a few who had a country hit or 2, but they weren't exclusively country such as the Pointer Sisters. There are a few Latinos who had some success in country, but that was rare too. There's a reason magazines like Ebony, Jet, & Right On! came into being and the same for TV shows like Soul Train or networks such as BET or Telemundo.

Nothing to dispute to anything you’re saying. That’s absolutely right...

I just wish sometimes people would step out of their “comfort zones “ and at least TRY something a little different... they just might like it. If you’re Chinese you don’t HAVE to eat moo goo gai pan every night. If you’re a Mexican, there’s other stuff besides tacos. White people, not just Olive Garden all the time. And that especially goes for music (and even movies and TV as well)

I've never seen these or Friends either. The last shows I really kept up with was The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air & Blossom in the 1990s. I did sometimes watch Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives, Bernie Mac Show, & the first 2 or 3 seasons of Supergirl. Pretty much the only current shows I watch is Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, Let's Make A Deal, and maybe The Young & The Restless/Days Of Our Lives. I don't have cable or satellite and have no interest in it anyway. When I had it I mostly watched All American Cowgirl Chicks, Turner Classic Movies, Encore Black, VH-1, reruns of Hee Haw/Pop Goes The Country, and some channel that showed old western TV shows like Death Valley Days. There are some shows I've seen kinda regularly because somebody else was watching them, but I didn't otherwise such as Girlfriends, Black-ish, George Lopez Show, Tyler Perry sitcoms & the NCIS show with LL Cool J.

I’m not saying people have to watch or like the shows that I mentioned... those were just the first very popular shows off the top of my head.

I’m just talking about diversity of taste, and not being limited to just one thing. But if people choose to do that, I can’t argue that they should think differently

For shows like the Sopranos I used to rent the DVDs from Netflix and make copies. lol That was the great series that started a renaissance for cable TV and the series spawned by Netflix, Prime, etc.

I gotta give it up to 70s Chicago (the band) as well...and WAR, The Ohio Players, The Bar-Kays, Average White Band, etc. The Beatles were also still releasing good albums...SEPARATELY, of course. Haha. It's sometimes fun to put together your own 70s Beatles albums from the solo ones based on the year they were released. John has always been my favorite Beatle, the one whose style I was inspired by the most. My favorite LP of the 70s from him would be 1974's "Walls And Bridges". It had some funky things on it for sure. From Paul, it's a little tougher, but I dig 1979's Wings "Back To The Egg" probably the most..."Red Rose Speedway" & of course "Band On The Run" from '73 aren't too far behind. I dig alot of stuff from George as well. [Edited 1/8/21 12:35pm]

I just got into more of The Beatles recently and got a lot of stuff last year and then branched out into some of the solo stuff too. From John, my favorite would be "Walls And Bridges". From Paul, it would be "Band On The Run". I like "London Town" also. I was very surprised to see that the song "Girlfriend" was originally Paul's instead of Michael Jackson's.


.


What did you think of the album (if you've heard it), that had John and Yoko nude on the cover? I always put the picture of an album cover in my computer with an album so when I was dowloading stuff, that is the first one I went to basically looking for a reason to put the picture in the computer. lol As I skimmed through each track, I was like.... "What in THE hell is this?????".... Absolutely horrible! I mean, horrible. I couldn't make heads or tails of it. It just sounded like a bunch of dying moaning or something to me. I don't think I heard any music at all, just either moaning or noises. I tell ya, they must have been on some good drugs if they thought they were making music with that one. lol I looked for even one track to download just so there would be something to attach the picture to and I couldn't even find one that made sense. Finally, I said the hell with that particular album and the picture too. lol



Yeah, some hardcore Beatles and John fans don't even like that one. It was part of basically a trilogy of "experimental" music. It's not great to listen to regularly...but it does show just how far out John was. If nothing else...Haha! On a side note, I hope you found something else from Exiles of the Nation you dig from the playlist I posted on the Janet era thread. "Undressed" was on it as well. If you didn't see it, here it is again. https://youtube.com/playl...OKJXUNwuEa

And I dig some of "London Town" as well. It just seemed like with "Back To The Egg", Paul got back to more of a heavier sound. John's true solo debut "Plastic On Band" was crazy too...Raw as hell. I dig alot of his 73's "Mind Games" LP as well.

A lot of people go with cultural things in entertainment that they identify with. If someone goes to rodeos, then it's likely they're into country music. Not much about rodeos or rural life in techno, heavy metal, or hip hop. There is a sub-genre called hick hop though. There's a reason Black Panther was a big deal to black audiences in the US. People also tend to go with the same things their family were into, even if it's a different form of it. Instead of Freddie Jackson, it's Chris Brown. Instead of Salt n Pepa or MC Lyte, it's Megan Thee Stallion, Nicki Minaj, & Cardi B.

I liked George Harrison's post-Beatle work the best.

I totally agree...
Just nice to branch out sometimes, and not always be in the same box
Like the guy who said he likes nothing from the 1960s... I just find it hard to fathom that there’s absolutely nothing from this great decade from music that he could find value and joy in. But to each his own

Yeah, George is my favourite Beatle. In case you didn't know, next month, the recordings he made with Bob Dylan will be released. [Edited 1/14/21 9:15am]

I just got into more of The Beatles recently and got a lot of stuff last year and then branched out into some of the solo stuff too. From John, my favorite would be "Walls And Bridges". From Paul, it would be "Band On The Run". I like "London Town" also. I was very surprised to see that the song "Girlfriend" was originally Paul's instead of Michael Jackson's.

.

What did you think of the album (if you've heard it), that had John and Yoko nude on the cover? I always put the picture of an album cover in my computer with an album so when I was dowloading stuff, that is the first one I went to basically looking for a reason to put the picture in the computer. lol As I skimmed through each track, I was like.... "What in THE hell is this?????".... Absolutely horrible! I mean, horrible. I couldn't make heads or tails of it. It just sounded like a bunch of dying moaning or something to me. I don't think I heard any music at all, just either moaning or noises. I tell ya, they must have been on some good drugs if they thought they were making music with that one. lol I looked for even one track to download just so there would be something to attach the picture to and I couldn't even find one that made sense. Finally, I said the hell with that particular album and the picture too. lol

Yeah, some hardcore Beatles and John fans don't even like that one. It was part of basically a trilogy of "experimental" music. It's not great to listen to regularly...but it does show just how far out John was. If nothing else...Haha! On a side note, I hope you found something else from Exiles of the Nation you dig from the playlist I posted on the Janet era thread. "Undressed" was on it as well. If you didn't see it, here it is again. https://youtube.com/playl...OKJXUNwuEa And I dig some of "London Town" as well. It just seemed like with "Back To The Egg", Paul got back to more of a heavier sound. John's true solo debut "Plastic On Band" was crazy too...Raw as hell. I dig alot of his 73's "Mind Games" LP as well. [Edited 1/13/21 5:26am]

Corrupted Connection, Emotional Suicide, Undressed, Superficial Artificial (I was loving the first 30 seconds of this one until it switched up and went in a different direction.), and All Night, All Morning.

Andy is a four letter word.
