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?
Now are releasing a 70s 5 LP vinyl collection in December 2021. Take a look at my review of the collection here. It would make a great gift for the 70s music lover in your life.
