I did level 5 before it had a name.
The biggest problem these days... I can't get the materials I prefer because the demand is low. So nobody stocks them anymore. And why is that? The guys in the trade these days don't know the difference in materials. I call them fender and body guys. Not a compliment.
They load it on... then grind it off. Not the way I do things.
Another name I have for them is The Keystone Cops. They flood the job with 10 workers, to do the job I can do by myself, in the same amount of time.
Ignorance is bliss, I suppose.

I loved his Psychedelic Mix from 2 years ago.

So many of these are fond favorites, but there were some I hadn't heard, like "Ice Cream Cakes" and I'm not really a Beck fan. Probably because I don't associate his stuff with times in my life. "Hey Bulldog"- So so song, but what a freakin weird finish.
"Running Bear". I LOVE THE ROCKIN ALBUM, uh Burt.
"Back Off Boogaloo" Fun to hear. He's a fine drummer but let's face it - he got so lucky.
"Spaceman" First & only Nilsson album I bought, because it had You're Breaking My Heart on it.
"Spare Me a Little of Your Love"through "Blue River" Never heard these - thanks!
"Wind of Change" Such an iconic album, recorded in a way that makes him sound like a superstar - but then it made him a superstar. WTF?
"Peaceful Easy Felling" I don't get the Eagles hate. This is a nice tune with some classic lyrics.
"Kings" not my favorite, but hey! "Ready for Love..." Not familiar - thanks! "Little Red Lights". This whole album has fused into my DNA. Even concept tunes like this. Fun fact: Edward James Olmos is one of the singers on side four.
"Free Four". A nice little "is that really Pink Floyd?" tune from college.
"The Sheriff". Not my favorite of theirs, since the lyrics are so forced and the music is awkward. But, to contextualize, when Keith killed himself, a couple of my friends called me to see if I was OK...

1972!
The first year of smogged over cars. The death of the muscle car. And the year I  graduated high school.
And I really didn't think the music was particularly all that great.
Yes, there were a few gems, and I was a year away of discovering KPPC FM and KROQ FM. Those stations influence my music listening quite a bit.

I've heard every band on your disc... well, Fanny isn't familiar.
And like Marty mentioned, I've almost always favored the deeper cuts.

I've always preferred The Stones deeper cuts over their hits. There's something about "Classic Schlock", that I first discovered around  this period of time... I grew tired of it real quick.
I would consider, even this tune, one I've heard too many times now. But that's my fault.
Exile on Main St. has some really great tunes rarely played anywhere.

I never heard "Ice Cream Cakes" before.  I've rarely sought out Mr. Beck much. As everyone who knows me... the blues give me the blues. 

"Hey Bulldog". I read where these women were influenced by... The Beatles. Not a bad cover.

"Running Bear".  Guess Who did a cover. I know. Who? They're on first. Yes!

"Back Off Boogaloo" Good ol' Ringo. One of his big hit's. I've always liked this one.

"Spaceman" A nice different one from Nilsson. I remember this one.

"Spare Me a Little of Your Love". Around this time I had a crush on Christine Perfect. So I really liked this song. Bare Trees was my first LP I purchased from Fleetwood Mac. I still like this era from them.

"In the Street".  Okay this is one of my types of music I seek out. It's funny that I never hear of Big Star anywhere back in '72.  Because no radio station ever played them. I'm so glad I found them later.  If I found them in '72...  I would have retracted my statement above about the music in '72.
Hands down my #1 here.

"Wonderful Girl" Sparks were around in '72?  Here we go again...  nobody played Sparks.  KROQ turned me on to Sparks a year later. Thanks for putting this one on here.

"The King Will Come".  I never heard this one before.  I wasn't a big follower of these guys. But there's a couple of their songs I do enjoy. Fact: Radio Paradise has only one song in the playlist from them.

"Blue Turk" I always liked Alice Cooper. I never bought any of his music until recently. It's good you put this one here.

"Blue River" Never heard this cut before. Not bad. Nice and mellow.

"Wind of Change" Another one I don't recall in '72. I do remember it from his "Comes Alive" hit. Good to hear the original version. I never liked live music albums.

"Peaceful Easy Felling". I always liked The Eagles. Yeah. That probably tells a lot about me to you people.
Again, I'm tired of the pieces that got run into the ground. They do have some great deeper cuts I really enjoy. Sorry.

"Kings" Here's a good deep cut from a great album. I've owned Can't By A Thrill on every format that's been produced.

"Ready for Love..." A cover I've never heard before. Not bad. Always liked Mott and His Hoople.

"Little Red Lights".  Never heard this before. Kinda heavy. Always liked Todd though.

"Free Four".  Love this era of Pink Floyd. One of my favorites from them.

"The Sheriff". This era of Emerson, Lake, Palmer brings back many memories... my "College Days". 
I went a community college here in the desert. I took all kinds of agricultural classes. I was going for a landscape architect degree. We would go on a many field trips in the college bus. The bus driver only had a collection of two- 8 track tapes. They were Emerson Lake and Palmer of all things. So, I really remember those first two LPs of Emerson Lake and Palmer. Thanks for including this. It was a pleasant surprise!

Great memory jogger Mr. Michael!
And as always... I appreciate the time and work you put into this.

At the beginning of every year you start to see the list of albums that came out 50 years ago, or 40, 25...whatever. This year caught my eye. I was already anticipating the 50 year anniversary of Something/Anything, an album that has influenced my musical tastes to this day. But when I saw the list of other albums celebrating the same anniversary I just knew I had to put a mix together of some of my favorites. Plus it was around this year that my 8 year old mind started to notice music in a different way other than something my parents listened to. I believe I purchased my first record that year, a K-Tell mail away LP that all I remember was Ricky Don't Lose that Number being on. 
It was a challenge to not make this sound like a classic hits radio mix, or go the double or triple disc route. I tried to mix in a few vintage tunes with some you might not have heard in awhile, or maybe even new to you 50 years late. I hope you enjoyed the time machine visit to 1972!



excellent effort!
really enjoying this burn
standouts for me?
jeff beck group - ice cream cakes
fanny - hey bulldog (best cover i've heard lately)
big star - in the street


and my favs right now? (subject to change with a few more spins)
steely dan - kings because reasons/emotional attachment
wishbone ash - the king will come
and elp - the sheriff

nice flashback

I bought my first copy of the School's Out album back when it came in a cardboard album cover that opened like a school desk, complete with legs that folded out from under, and the record came wrapped in a pair of panties.

By the time I caught up to this album they still sold it with the fold out legs but sans panties. Wish I had an original copy with that novelty in it. Such a great album too! When the big hit song is probably the worst song on the album that's saying something.

OK, since I have to make this all about me I did something last year very much like this for a 50th birthday party, but it wasn't this cool.

Back in my DJ days these tunes were called "deep cuts", the nuggets on albums that didn't make it to the top 40.  And there's some great stuff here. Besides the groovy artwork, I mean.

I tend to listen to Stones albums all the way thru (or I did back when they were good) so I already liked All Down the Line, but it's a neglected classic.

I remembered Running Bear as a novelty one-hit wonder back in the '60s and had no idea the Guess Who had covered it. Really faithful cover too.

I first heard Back Off Boogaloo on an airplane flying cross country back when they gave you pneumatic headphones to plug into your seat and an 8-track or something ground away at in the back of the airplane and piped music to the passengers. I listened to the tape loop at least twice and began to appreciate that Ringo was the most underrated Beatle.

I first heard Sparks in the freebie pile at the campus radio station in 1978 and thought they were very new-wave hip. Had no idea they had been around this long. Thanks for pointing us to this one!

I bought my first copy of the School's Out album back when it came in a cardboard album cover that opened like a school desk, complete with legs that folded out from under, and the record came wrapped in a pair of panties. Which my sister stole 'cuz they fit her or something. Blue Turk is definitely the stylistic outlier on this album—very smokey jazz nightclub sound to it. Great pick!

I heard the Eagles all thru high school so it shouldn't surprise me that Peaceful Easy Feeling came out so early, but it did.

I'd heard Steely Dan on the radio and they sounded ok I guess but then I got a job swamping a bar overnight and there was a stereo behind the bar with a couple of working 8-track tapes and one of them was Can't Buy a Thrill. I'd listen to it all the way thru and let it repeat and did that all night and by the end of that summer I still wasn't sick of it and bought a copy. I always figured Kings was about Watergate but it came out 2 years before the hearings so I never did figure out who the kings (John and Richard) were metaphors for.

I had only ever heard the Bad Company cover of Ready For Love and had no idea it was a Mott the Hoople song. Learning all kinds of stuff here!

And so on. This was more than a nostalgia trip, it was a history lesson and I thank you for it. Still fresh juice from this squeeze.

At the beginning of every year you start to see the list of albums that came out 50 years ago, or 40, 25...whatever. This year caught my eye. I was already anticipating the 50 year anniversary of Something/Anything, an album that has influenced my musical tastes to this day. But when I saw the list of other albums celebrating the same anniversary I just knew I had to put a mix together of some of my favorites. Plus it was around this year that my 8 year old mind started to notice music in a different way other than something my parents listened to. I believe I purchased my first record that year, a K-Tell mail away LP that all I remember was Ricky Don't Lose that Number being on. 
It was a challenge to not make this sound like a classic hits radio mix, or go the double or triple disc route. I tried to mix in a few vintage tunes with some you might not have heard in awhile, or maybe even new to you 50 years late. I hope you enjoyed the time machine visit to 1972!
