What we are listening to [2021]

I like to play albums from 50 years ago on New Years Eve. Picking one for this thread from 1971 is tricky. There is a credible case that it saw more great records released than any other year in music history.

Tonight has seen songs from many old favourites: Sticky Fingers, Aqualung, Led Zeppelin IV, Hunky Dory, What’s Going On, Blue, LA Woman, Who’s Next, Meddle, Tupelo Honey. Masterpieces all.

But I choose this one. Songs of heartbreak, hope, love and strength as beautiful and relevant now as they were then:

Best wishes for a happy and healthy 2021 to all.

Interesting tradition. I’ve got about 50 albums in my library from 1971, many that you’ve listed, many classics from artists that I consider my favorites - Elton John, Chicago, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, and Yes. It was clearly a great year in music. Let’s hope for the same 50 years down the road, in music and the rest of the world as well! Cheers!

Start the year right :joy:

Ok, I did wake up to Lang Lang, but this popped up and brought back memories of seeing Live in Docklands… Live. That was a while ago now, but spectacular.
Happy 2021 one and all…
