70's rock lps, lyrics and rock crosswords

1973

1973. This was the year that the world changed forever. The oil embargo rocketed the fuel price and in
South Africa, the price of everything else as well. Speed limits were set at 70 kmh on the open roads and
dodging the many speed traps took extreme concentration. Both the Buffalo Rally down in Aliwal North,
and the Trout up at Inyanga in Rhodesia were brilliant runs, what jols. In April, Mac and I spent three weeks
in London and three weeks hitch hiking around Europe. What an experience, particularly seeing the live show
Jesus Christ Superstar at the Palace Theatre in London, incredible. As far as Rock Music is concerned, 1973
produced more Grand L.P.'s than any other year, in my opinion, the best were Gong's Flying Teapot,
Dark Side Of The Moon
from Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Houses Of The Holy, David Bowie with Aladdin
Sane
,Frank Zappa's Overnite Sensation....... There were just so many good ones that it is difficult to place
them in order of best to last. Anyway have a look at my selection, and listen to some incredible music.
