*We'll dip into a concept album based on western/American themes from 1970. This particular song is similar to Wilfred Owen's WW1 poem, Strange Meeting, in which a soldier meets the man who killed him on the battlefield. Name the great song's creators and the track for extra credit...
*Talk about unexpected consequences...This artist's 9th studio album and her last of 3 albums to top the Billboard album charts in 1978, featured a front cover of the rollerskating artist in an exercise outfit. The artist's popularity with popular culture at the time was noted to have a profound impact on the popularity of skating in the U.S. at the time. Name the artist...
*This artist was a California kid who played organ like Ray Charles and had a singing voice that sounded like a surfer dude. We'll play his biggest hit from 1971, after which, he seemed to pull off a huge disappearing act. If you didn't know the meaning of the song before...you'll know what the artist means afterwards...Name the artist and the song...
*A 1970 song we'll enjoy today has a gospel-based melody inspired by the artist's new relationship with Rita Coolidge who also provided backup vocals on the song. 5 other backing vocalists joined in the bridge and the refrain including Graham Nash, David Crosby, John Sebastion and Cass Elliott. Recommended listening position for this song...sitting down. Name the artist and the song...
