I was catapulted back to musical memories of the early 1970's yesterday, when I came across this video clip. How many of you remember Albert Hammond?
Not really any enduring musical value, but he certainly caught the zeitgeist of those days in his music.
'The Peacemaker' reached the top of the hit parade in South Africa. Hammond is still performing, many decades after his peak years. Here he is in 2012 with a live version.
And I bet this one got some wishful replays during the Oroville dam crisis a couple of weeks ago!
Hammond also wrote this rather... strange number for The Pipkins, who were a one-hit wonder with it in England in 1970.
Ah, yes . . . days of relative innocence, the early 1970's. I sometimes wonder where that innocence went . . . then I remember.
