Critics often say that the music of the 70s pales in comparison to the music of other decades. Well, in this course, we’re going to prove them wrong. Many of the artists that began their careers in the 60s released some of their best work in the 70s, add to that, new artists like Elton John, Fleetwood Mac and the Jackson 5 and the evolution of soul music into Funk with Sly and the Family Stone and of course the BeeGees ushering in the age of Disco with Saturday Night Fever, then mix in the silky smooth Philly sound and you have music that started the world dancing. Not to leave out the rockers who started in the 60’s but came to the fore in the 70s like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and a host of heavy metal artists, all of which adds up to a fantastic decade of music.
