Star Time #61: I've Got to Use My Imagination

A full episode of '70s songs awaits your plundering in Star Time #61, beginning with the Queen and ending with a lovely day. Along with some deep album tracks and a nutritionally balanced selection of obscurities, we have more certified hits in this episode than we normally do. Finally found a basis to sneak in Isaac Hayes' "Theme from Shaft," for one thing. Quite a few songs that might sound familiar because of their being sampled for eventual rap hits. Also two songs written by Stevie Wonder, but not sung by Stevie Wonder. Things sometimes work out that way.
