Mixtape Of The Day 7/24/2016: The Hidden '70s, Vol. 1: 1970-72

Here it is, bucko. This is what we train for all winter. The first of either four or five mixtapes coming your way over the next two months covering our whole Hidden '70s lifestyle. In addition to all the Songs Of The Day featured last week (which are linked to below), Vol. 1 includes highlights like:
  • The Neon Philharmonic, possibly the whitest bread to be found in this entire series

  • Elephant's Memory, who backed up John Lennon on Some Time In New York City

  • A song that actually calls San Bernardino, California a better place than Paris or Rome

  • Anne Murray & Glen Campbell doing two separate songs simultaneously to devastating results

  • One of my favorite monologues in rock music history at the top of the Long John Baldry song

  • A tribute to Tyrone Davis who probably had more eligible songs for The Hidden '70s than any other artist

  • Mark-Almond, not to be confused with the lead singer of Soft Cell

  • A thoughtless mash-up of the Apollo 13 mission and All in the Family

  • An investigation into Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep-gate

  • An editorial correction! I'm very excited about the editorial correction.
One hour and fifty minutes of music and information so hop to it.
