CultureMUSIC: "The Ocean (Live)" - Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains the Same c. 1973

Can’t close out ‪#‎Saturday70s‬ without some Zep either. The greatest rock band of the 1970s. (Yeah, I said it.)

CultureMUSIC: “Big Yellow Taxi (Live)” - Joni Mitchell c. 1970 @ Isle Of Wright Festival

Wrapping up the ‪#‎Saturday70s‬ series today with a few videos. A live festival clip from the beginning of Joni’s career.

When it comes to late 20th century pop/folk artists, you can’t put a price on Joni Mitchell’s influence. She was an absolute original. Not just in vocal style but also in her painfully personal lyrical writing. Her influence can be felt from Kate Bush to Erykah Badu. Prince, who is a huge fan, once said that Mitchell, “taught me a lot about sound and color”. She is truly one of the great female artists of the 20th century.

CultureBLOG: Folk/ Rock - The 1970s & The 2000s

There is an interesting cultural tie between the early 70s and the early 00s. America was bone tired at the end of the 60s. Too many deaths, assassinations, protests and the never-ending Vietnam War made for a weary nation and the music began to reflect that sentiment. People just wanted a little peace and comfort. It started in the late 60s with tracks like “The Weight”, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Who’ll Stop The Rain”, and at the dawn of the new decade, the burgeoning new soft/rock sound from California took hold. Led by the soothing Lauren Canyon sounds of Crosby, Stills & Nash, Joni Mitchell, Elton John, The Eagles and Mr. James Taylor, who appeared on this 1971 TIME cover, folk/rock became one of the most successful music genres of the decade.

What’s fascinating is that after 9/11, America, shell-shocked and rapidly heading to war, turned to that same genre for auditory comfort. With the rise of Norah Jones, Jack Johnson, Colbie Caillat, The Shins, Corrine Bailey Rae, Fleet Foxes and other new artists, the nation returned to the soothing folks sounds that our parents & grandparents loved in the 1970s. Even Hip Hop slowed its beats down (something that hardcore HH fans still lament today) with albums like JAY Z's The Blueprint, Timbaland's cooled-out staccato rhythms and Li’l Wayne with his slow,druggy style. Again, we needed that auditory consolation. As someone who enjoys following cultural shifts, this has always been a fascinating tie between Boomers and Millenials. In essence, both generations turned to the music to heal. Some things never change.
