If you enjoyed this post, please leave a comment below. Also why not connect with me and the other members over on my facebook group. I am trying to build up a community of people who love this decade of music.

I want to get people together to share their memories of the music, their favourite artists and songs of the 70’s. We all have those memories and they come flooding back to you when you hear certain songs don’t they?
