A few weeks ago, I put together a show featuring nothing but UK rock and roll from 1977. Well, here’s the US counterpart, two hours of some of the greatest records ever produced. And this show jumps around through genres quite a bit more than the UK episode, with not only some blistering punk rock but power pop, classic rock, and even some more experimental material that greatly influenced bands that came years and decades later. What’s also remarkable is just how much material some of these artists created in this fabulous year. Cheap Trick, Iggy Pop, and The Ramones all put out two full albums during these twelve months, while others followed up with another new album at the beginning of the next year. It was certainly a year of creativity. I would love it if every listener bought at least one record I played on either of these shows. These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. And if you buy these records directly from the artist or label, please let them know you heard these tunes […]
