Flashback: Pivotal Music From January 1971


I’m reading a book called Never a Dull Moment: 1971 – The Year That Rock Exploded by David Hepworth, which is a great read. Each chapter covers one month, and at the end of the chapter Hepworth includes a list of songs/albums released that month that somehow impacted and/or shaped the future of music. I thought it would be fun to share some of those picks with you all. So, here are all nine songs from January’s list:

Get Down and Get With It by Slade:


Domino by Van Morrison:


America by Yes (Simon & Garfunkel cover):


Your Song by Elton John:


Working Class Hero by John Lennon:


I Hear You Knocking by Dave Edmunds:


In My Chair by Status Quo:


No Matter What by Badfinger:


Ride A White Swan by T. Rex:
