To Joel Kathrens: Regarding the whole prejudice of "synths aren't instruments", have you ever noticed that those very same people who say that are the same ones who, ironically enough, love albums by Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock? Last time I checked, synthesizers were all over their 70's and 80's output. Just a thought...

re: Griffin House

Real nice! What rock have I been under that this smooth cat got away from my *new to me radar*? ;-) Thank you, very much.

I presume he plays mostly in the acoustic mode, from the samples I listened to.

Regarding the modern instruments and recording methods:

Makes you wonder what the grand masters from the past, I mean centuries as well as decades ago, would've done with them and if they would have used or scorned the modern methods.
Probably some would've accepted synths, etc and maybe others would've preferred acoustic insturments.

Kind of fun to speculate, anyway.

Speaking of soft rock, does anyone here like one of my favorites: Rita Coolidge?

She started out as a rock singer--she toured with Delaney & Bonnie And Friends. She sang my favorite rendition of "Superstar" on Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs And Englishmen Tour and album.

She has since sung pop, country (a few duet albums with her then-husband, Kris Kristofferson), and standards. Her albums can now be found in either the "vocal" or "easy listening" section of record stores (or record sections of book stores now that Tower and Virgin are gone).

As far as the soft rock/adult contemporary/easy listening sort of topics, the Pop Music community used to have some really interesting discussions. Then it sort of became the "name 3 songs about __" community and not many discussions. Maybe we could start over again over there, it's pretty dead.

Two of my favorite softer acts of the 70s were Loggins & Messina and Gerry Rafferty. I caught myself thinking about Christopher Cross the other day but didn't actually pull out the vinyl for the first time in 20+ years. But I did pull John (not Al, not Rod) Stewart out and gave him a spin.

Hi Iceblossom,

This thread isn't just about soft rock/pop, it's about *all* things music. We can jump around and just say whatever comes to mind, be it jazz, rock, pop, classical, soul, country, whatever!

Hi, Christopher Gazzo! I saw your two guilty faves--Barry and Neil and noticed that Music Lover put The Little River Band's Greatest Hits on his list. Just a suggestion--You might try that one. Take Care. Pat.
