  • The Ledge #508: 1977

    “No Elvis, Beatles, or Rolling Stones!”

    Sure, it was a pose. The Clash may have sung those lyrics, but they were actually true students in the history of rock and roll. But the British punk scene of 1977 was certainly a time when the walls were pushed over and new blood took over the music scene. Maybe the lyrics should have been “No Floyd, Yes, or ELP!”

    So tonight’s celebration includes a ton of artists that proved themselves to be legendary, along with many other bands that had long careers. And there’s also quite a few acts that crashed and burned, leaving behind a fabulous two or three minute piece of dynamite!

    I would love it if every listener bought at least one record I played on either of these shows. These great artists deserve to be compensated for their hard work, and every purchase surely helps not only pay their bills but fund their next set of wonderful songs. And if you buy these records directly from the artist or label, please let them know you heard these tunes on The Ledge! Let them know who is giving them promotion!
