40 Year Itch: Welcome to 1974!

            Welcome to 1974 kids! This is the year prog rock gave us three more great albums ( King Crimson's Red, Camel's Mirage and Genesis's Lamb Lies Down on Broadway); the year Patti Smith recorded her first single ("Hey Joe/Piss Factory"); the year The Ramones, Blondie, The Saints and Joe Strummer's 101ers and David Byrne's Artistics formed; the year of Court and Spark, Country Life, Sheet Music, On the Beach, and Taking Tiger Mountain ( By Strategy); the year King Crimson, Sparks, Queen, Bob Dylan and Van Morrison gave us- not one- but two great albums; the year of "Kung Fu Fighting", "Waterloo" "The Night Chicago Died" and two competing versions of "Billy Don't Be a Hero". I must let the show must go on!
