See how many of these you know, Stui - just a few of the tunes released as singles in 1968:

Here's Pies4shaw list in a Spotify playlist.

I only listed to a bit of Hurdy Gurdy man, enough to know I'd never heard it before. Not something I'd go looking for but if it came on the radio I wouldn't turn it off.

With my early exposure to music, you have to remember I grew up in a small country town. The Kitchen radio was fixed to the ABC, 3LO and if I changed it to try to find some music Dad would have a meltdown.

In the early 70's we had a milk bar that had a pool room with a juke box (which I had the keys to)so that was the only exposure to modern music I had, what the sales rep thought were appropriate singles for bush teens in the mid 70's.

When I got my own transistor radio, the only channels, apart from the ABC you could get, were 3SR Shepparton and 2QN Deniliquin, neither of whom played a lot of current music.

Similar here Stui, mine was 2WG in Wagga Wagga. The station mantra was "Hits of the 50's,60's & 70's". (our TV channels were the ABC & the local Sydney Ch9 affiliate. Thankfully I had the ABC, as they played The Winners)
Those eras formed the core of music education before I acquired a cassette deck / stereo that had 2 short wave radio frequencies I could tap into. That gave me access to the hard-edged Chicago Blues and the Mississippi Blues delta.

Yeah, the Winners were cool. Apart from the ABC on TV, we had AMV4 Albury and GMV6 Shepparton. You needed 2 different aerials to get both and had a switch on the back of the TV to switch between aerials. Neither were really aligned but we got VFL replays on Saturday night.

Ours was RVN2 / AMV4. Dad eventually bought a Victorian aerial to get the footy. Amazing that technology now lets us get pretty much anything.

The 70's threw some classics. A few faves of mine, in no particular order....

Some bangers, there, Skids.

I have to say, though, the 70s is a dangerous decade - it's only a matter of time before someone posts a link to Bohemian Rhapsody and tries to assert that anyone in Queen could sing or play guitar.

Anyway, in case they do, here's the antidote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhfvzxYXlBU and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2lSwosw9xY and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oa2w-H6TwVQ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCRbiJnUQY8

And, since I've stuck with 1975, here's the best track on the best album I bought that year - from Jukka Tolonen's compilation "Crosssection", this is "Witch Drum". It is from the masters used for "Dance" on Tasavallan Presidentti's 1972 album Lambert Land. That version is about a minute shorter than "Witch Drum", which is a very bad thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpsjhR7mMBw

If that doesn't make you stop singing "Galileo, Galileo" in a dumb falsetto, nothing will.

Be sure to watch Coldplay at Glasto. Live now, but there should be catch ups available. Fantastic, just as they were when I saw them at Wembley. I get the sense they never undervalue their audience.
