It begins with Pete Townshend speaking and ends with the climax from Won't Get Fooled Again - what's not to like?!?

Self-promoting exaggeration.

Music of 1971 was no more “changing of everything” than music of 1970 or 1972 or…

I'm sure I will watch this, but I still think 69 is a better year (Abbey Road + Tommy + Zep I and II) and 79 is the year music changed (London Calling + the Wall + Sugar Hill Gang + tons of other new music acts starting).

I saw the Osmonds at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo sometime in the mid to late '70's

The Police released Outlandos d’Amour and Blondie released Parallel Lines in 1978; Elvis Costello released My Aim is True the year before that (and recorded it in 1976!) Change was afoot even before 1979.

Not to mention that your statement completely ignores the rise of disco and soul in the early ‘70s.



It is what it is.

1979 was an AMAZING year for releases.

Ok good points, but pick a year? I think the post punk era was more important than the punk era, and the rap era more important than soul and funk. But I get that those are subjective and the lines are blurry.

But a dividing line between 1979 and 1980 is really stark. London Calling is the best album from the best band of that era, but is not a punk album, so marks the end of the punk period and the start of post punk/new wave, even though many of those bands were getting started in 1977-78, including Gang of Four and Talking Heads. Rappers Delight is from 1979 and that is considered the official start of rap, etc. The Wall is the last great classic rock album + Bonham dies and Zep breaks up.

By the time 1971 came around, ti was a wonderful time to be working in rock radio. You hardly had enough time to play all the good stuff from 1967 thru 1971.

And it wasn't just the immortal hits either, even the secondary stuff was among the greatest rock ever.

LOL (from your link):
  • January 15 – MCA Records purchases ABC Records.
  • March 5 – MCA Records dissolves ABC Records.

I think 1964 was the biggest change in all of music.

Bigger than Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee and the acceptance of rock and roll?

How about this one?

April 2 – Kate Bush begins her first, and for 35 years, only tour. She becomes the first artist to use a wireless microphone, enabling her to sing and dance at the same time.

Bush was involved in every aspect of the production, choreography, set design, costume design and hiring. The shows were noted for her dancing, complex lighting and her 17 costume changes per show. Because of her need to dance as she sang, sound engineers used a wire coat hanger and a radio microphone to fashion a headset microphone; it was the first used by a rock performer since the Spotnicks used a rudimentary version in the early 1960s.

She was 21.
