when music was still creative - before it became predictable

sushil rao
The list author says: "-
rock music and culture had a freshness and innocence that tapered off towards the late seventies.
by 1980 cocaine, stds and ego had replaced mj, freelove and poetry.
woodstock became altamont, hippies became druggies, the sexes drifted apart, and me/me/me became cool,
except in little pockets, where people were turning inwards and finding harmony with self . . .

true creativity needs hunger, vision and sincerity. ego is a death trap. you have to be numb to fall into it.
music was the dominant artform then and poet-musicians were redefining hope and passion.
after 1980 music became too whiny for me. i drifted away into world music, jazz, classical etc.
here's what i remember from those days . . ."
It's a Beautiful Day

"pure poetry and great music ! to my taste, this is the greatest album of its era. has a lot of heart, mysticism, surrealist poetry, amazing lyrics, very creative music, superb vocals etc etc very high feeling !"

"this is a fusion of poetry and music where they enhance each other and yet remain themselves. that's what creates the "art" feeling."

"this is the album where the Beatles entered into their modernism. they were no longer a pop band playing for the crowds - now they had something to say. this is also where the Beatles finally caught up with what was going on culturally and were trying to be hippies."
Abbey Road
Abbey Road
"this, in my opinion, is one of the most sophisticated albums ever created. this one, Sgt Peppers and It's a Beautiful Dayhave an amazing "album" quality that is very unique."
The White Album
The White Album
"a collection of various leftovers from other projects. doesn't quite have that "album" feel to it. but by this time the Beatles had reached a level where anything they wrote was great."
Electric Ladyland
Electric Ladyland
"in another age Hendrix would have been remembered as a great poet. his guitar-work and music-composing ability really set him apart. imho, Hendrix is the greatest composer of his time. a truly introverted artist."
Caravanserai

"has a superb mystical feel to it. my favorite Santana album"

"you can see here a little bit of pop entering into Santana's music replacing the mysticism of his earlier work."
Abraxas

"an earlier album. in my opinion this is where he started finding the mystical feeling that pervades his best work."
