I Heart 1971

From allmusic,com, a tribute to 1971 at:

http://blog.allmusic.com/2010/7/1/allmusic-loves-1971/

"Brief quotation for review purposes" follows.  (Brief like when WNEW-FM used to report on an in-progress Stones concert.)

It was the year of many, many things — the flowering of progressive soul, the diamond-hard spooky fusion of Miles Davis, the first inklings of outlaw country, another year of gloriously disposable AM pop singles — but above all 1971 is the year that the era of classic rock began. It is the year of Led Zeppelin IV, Who’s Next, What’s Going On, Sticky Fingers, Every Picture Tells a Story, Hunky Dory, Blue, Master of Reality, Tapestry, Aqualung, Allman Brothers’ At Fillmore East, The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys, Imagine, Meddle, Electric Warrior, Fireball, If I Could Only Remember My Name, L.A. Woman, Madman Across the Water, Nilsson Schmilsson — and those are just a handful of the albums that provide the essential texts for ‘71, the albums that created the sound, style, and attitude of album-oriented rock, pop, and soul. Today, almost all of those records are commonly accepted classics — even those that didn’t age as well as, say, There’s a Riot Goin’ On, are undeniably what the golden era of album rock was all about, and when reviewing all the great music that came out in ‘71, there’s no doubt that this is one of the all-time great years of pop music.

Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Like any other year with too much good music to fit on one simple list, I created my own set of rules when compiling my 1971 lists, relying on my usual habit of not picking singles from albums on the list then cramming the two Faces and Haggard albums from this year into one slot apiece. Call it cheating, but by their very nature lists are never complete and are best viewed as a roadmap through a particular territory…and in this case, ‘71 provided some memorable, adventurous terrain. As always, albums and singles are picked according to what I’d like to hear right now, as of this writing in 2010, and any oversights may or may not be intentional.

Uncle Dave Lewis
1971 was such a strange and transitional year in the whole music biz. Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin had both died the year before, Jim Morrison would die during 1971, and by then the world was realizing that the Beatles truly were never going to get back together. Louis Armstrong, Igor Stravinsky, and George Szell also died during ‘71 and both the classical and jazz worlds were strangely silent in some respects, exceptions being that both Weather Report and Earth Wind & Fire made their debut albums that year and Miles Davis recorded his violently angry Tribute to Jack Johnson. Among the albums listed below, about all of them are flawed in some ways — perhaps only Black Sabbath, Carole King, Led Zeppelin and Harry Nilsson were really on their games in ‘71, and the Carpenters fashioned some of the most creative pop music of the year (!) In 1971, I had access to a new technology; a small, hand-held plastic transistor radio which I used to hear the hits. The singles chart perhaps reflects 1971 better than the albums listed — in ‘71, everyone was wondering where the music was going to go; wherever that would be, it wasn’t there yet.

Not a dog in the bunch. Its amazing when you think of music now. I like the Lady GaGas etc....but things will never be like they were in that era, where everything was something.
Dissagree about the guy says about 'Theres a Riot...'
Sly is always timeless.
This was kindergarten for me, and yet, I feel connected to this music. There is no cultural zeitgiest anymore. Even the one-hit-wonders are relevant.

I remember first hearing "Maggie May" on the snowy car ride home from the airport after a trip to Disney World.  "WTF didn't I hear this in Florida?" I asked myself, aged 12.  Forever after, that mandolin meant snow and the tall brown grass off the airport runway. 

I remember the day I bought the orange-label 45 of "Man in Black" by Johnny Cash.  Are people going to have memories like these about Lady Ga-Ga?  Does this matter?  Yes and Yes.

Like i said, I like Ga GA, but not sure these songs will have the same impact....
those were different times where everybody was seemingly listening to the same music - I can't explain that too young people.
"Ain't no Sunshine" is a hot, summer morning on the way to vacation bible school.....
And "Rose Garden" is the hardware store.....Andrew, I think it has alot to do with our relative youth - were very impressionable and what a fantastic time to be impressionable.
