Off and running.

First blog, first post.

So, I think I'll start with...disco. Why is it that when people discuss music from the 1970's, they invariably end up at disco? Don't get me wrong, I think the Bee Gees were great. I just know there is more to the 70's than disco. My son attended a school dance that had a 70's theme; almost all the music was disco!

Just to let you know that more than disco happened during the 1970's music scene, here is my playlist from my MP3 player for the 70's. Great stuff. I like my playlists to flow from one song to the next. It must be a Type-A thing.
