    I know that everybody tends to emulate the music of his or her youth, but is there anybody who would deny the incredible appeal of most pop music from the Summer of 1971?

    This was era when most musicians were trying to prove that ‘rock music’ was no longer music for adolescents, but for everybody. The success rate was incredible, too. Some of these songs remain on radio playlists to this day, while others have drifted into obscurity. I hope you have fun hearing them again, played in the context of the first time they were heard by us.

    Songs featured include;

    Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey – Paul and Linda McCartney

    Maggie May – Rod Stewart

    Ain’t No Sunshine – Bill Withers

    Tired of Being Alone – Al Green

    Won’t Get Fooled Again – The Who

    Signs – Five Man Electrical Band

    Never Ending Song of Love – Delaney and Bonnie
