Don't say that!
My faves are from around '75.
Slade from 73 my first music love and first album albeit on cassette, quickly followed by the mighty Quo, first vinyl came in 77 with Queen’s News of the World, Quo’s Rocking all over the World and Meatloaf’s Bat out of Hell, all purchased once I started work.

The 70’s by far the most exciting decade for music lovers, at least it is for me.

I hate Slade, especially this time of year! I don't like the prog rock era and Queen sort of covers this also. I do like a few Queen tracks however. Status Quo were great and I listen to a lot of rock and metal. I'm quite eclectic in my listening, as there are great tunes from all genres, covering hundreds of years now. I bet people will still be playing Bach in another 350 years. The stuff kids listen to these days is tripe and wlll be forgotten in 5 years.

This. It's very good. I've listened to several complete Beethoven Piano Concerto recordings. So far they all pale in comparison with this.
Hard to put into words the sheer excellence of Emil Gilels and the Cleveland Orchestra, IMG_20231225_101856.jpgwith George Szell conducting.
If you like Beethoven's Piano Concertos, I recommend that you find this and listen. I think anyone in the above mentioned category would be blown away so to speak.

Thanks for the thought, I’ll search that out. I like Pollini, Perahia and more recently, Sudbin, but there are so many interpretations of these concerti down the decades.

Gilels was renowned for his Brahms concertos too, if you’ve not heard those.
