Just to Show I'm Not Just About Anarchy and Argyle Skateboards
You don't need Punk Rock to take you back to '77. Here's one of the greats from the era. Boz Scaggs doing Lido Shuffle. I'd love to say it teleports me to my pre-high school days when my cousin Teresa taught her brother and me to unhook a girl's bra, by placing hers on the back of a chair. But that was Cheap Trick's Live at Budokan. Really, I mostly ignored Boz until I found this album in my wife's collection when we started dating during the heady days of the Afghanistan invasion (by the Americans, not the Soviets).
Of note is the late, great Jeff Porcaro on drums who's got the tempo up above the cut on the record (I love referring to pre-digital music as being on "records").
