Neither a joyless trudge through the well-worn canon of 'classic albums you-must-hear' nor a joyless exercise in crate-digger oneupmanship, this book opens out, through what is basically a series of genre overviews and a series of record reviews, a whole new vista of understanding for the history of recorded music in the 1970s, an era in which the record industry was arguably at its most prolific, its most profitable and often at its most daring.

Born of a boundless and omnivorous joy in music and a playful intellectual curiosity, Matt Ingram uncovers and breathes life into an impossible to second-guess array of hidden-in-plain-sight gems that one might well find lurking in the charity shops and provincial record stores. It is Ingram's evident pleasure in music, and the LP record in particular, as a means of connection between people and between moments in history through the epiphany of the musical moment that makes this book worth more than a thousand obscurantist eulogies to 'must have' private press psych / minimal synth / krautrock LPs.

4.0 out of 5 stars 100 Lost Rock Albums from the 1970's 18 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In the same way that, as an avid reader, I love books about books - as a music lover I also love reading books about music. This little volume comes with the warning - "Please note that all of these records are interesting, but not all of them are excellent! Tread carefully." However, there is much to explore here - 100 albums that have been neglected or forgotten, some by well known artists, some I must admit I have never heard of.

This book looks at rock albums in the categories of Blues Rock, Country Rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Progressive Rock, Rock Fusion, Glam Rock, Solo Rock, Krautrock, Le Rock, Electronic Rock, Avant Rock, Pub Rock, Punk and Post Punk. This is a very personal list, but there is much that is worth of exploring and remembering. My favourite section was Solo Rock, giving Paul McCartney's first solo album and the excellent Nilsson Schmillson a well deserved mention. My favourite band name listed in this book has to be The Plastic People of the Universe. Great read and now I have to go and search through my boxes of old albums and see what I can unearth...

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 27 July 2013
By Mr. Stephen Edwards VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We will all agree or disagree with at least some of the selections,but this is a thoroughly enjoyable trawl through the backwaters of '70s popular music. Some of the albums, 'I Want to see the Bright Lights Tonight' or 'Thank Christ for the Bomb' for instance, were very well known indeed when I was a student, others I had never heard of.
Well worth a couple of hours of any music lovers time, and it has prompted me to download a couple of long forgotten classics.

A great book. Very informative and told with humour and obvious affection for the subject. Would recommend it to any one trying to find some inspiration for adding to their record collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars some forgotten gems in here! 10 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've seen some reviews that disagree with the selection of albums for this book...but that's the point of it! I'm a big music fan with an eclectic taste (so I've been told!) and there are albums here that I've never heard of and want to listen to. For me that makes this book well worth exploring. If I find one album that I love and didn't know of it's existence prior to reading it - which is very likely to happen - then I'm a happy chappy!

3.0 out of 5 stars NEAT LITTLE BOOK 7 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Some of the reviews to this book have been rather unkind.

This is a guy who clearly loves his Seventies music who is enlightening us to a few lost gems. Not over-detailed, but with a nice piece on each album, it has opened my eyes to a few albums I hadn't considered.

A similar book is '101 Songs to Discover From the Seventies'.
