How can anyone write about 70's music without mentioning Eno?

Here Come the Warm Jets
Taking Tiger Mountain
Another Green World
Before and After Science

Nobody had four better albums in the 70's

one of the first records i bought and this was '72  K-tel's "22 Explosive Hits" 
A1   –Sammy Davis Jr.    The Candy Man   
A2   –Gallery (2)    Nice To Be With You   
A3   –Lobo (3)    A Simple Man   
A4   –Olivia Newton-John    If Not For You   
A5   –Osmonds*    One Bad Apple   
A6   –Fortunes*    Rainy Day Feeling   
A7   –Pop Tops*    Mammy Blue   
A8   –Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds    Don't Pull Your Love   
A9   –Daddy Dewdrops*    Chicaboom   
A10   –April Wine    You Could Have Been A Lady   
A11   –Hot Butter    Popcorn   
B1   –Derek & The Dominos    Layla   
B2   –Flash (25)    Small Beginnings

B6   –James Last    Wedding Song   
B7   –Detroit Emeralds    Baby Let Me, Take You   
B8   –Chi-Lites*    Power To The People   
B9   –Millie Jackson    My Man, A Sweet Man   
B10   –James Brown    Honky Tonk Part 1   
B11   –Joe Simon    Power Of Love
then i went out and 2nd album purchase was a live Osmond brothers (multi 3 i think lp epic....ouch)

so considering all covered so far herein from eno to cloth-eared twonk (tell us how ya really feel !)
i can't think we'd have anywhere near as much fun with the 90s somehow....
brilliant all around....... 8)

Track A10  -April Wine. Would that be Iron & Wine's mum by any chance?

i did know a boy in my first grade who could play "hot butter"  by puckering up and then tweaking his cheeks with his finger  :o
forget April Wine and go straight to Trooper "boys and their bright white sprorts cars" now that was '70s canadiana http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=pCVbyY2ZTjA#t=3

Everyone could, surely? If only we'd had Britain's Got Hughie Green, Popcorn tribute acts would have been on every episode.
