  1. This is one of the most consistent top 40s I’ve seen in the 70s. It seems like the more the seventies carried on the more novelty type songs…or just bad… started to roll in.

    • We have talked about this before- the great soul music of the early 70’s- in listening to that 6 cd box set- it sure seemed like 4/5ths of the great stuff was from the first part of the decade before Disco set in… There really wasn’t anything I hated on this top 40– I gave 38 of the 40 A’s or B’s.. yikes. my reputation as a music snob is going to suffer… next week I will make up for it!

    • Disco was the marker, wasn’t it? Yes there was some good but also some really bad…The great Soul music started to turn into disco…

      I was going to remark about the lack of bad marks…Yes once you move up a few years…your reputation will be intact.
