Marker Starling's LIFEY: A Musical Cosmology
Part 5: 1970
1970 has been a year that has long fascinated scholars and armchair critics alike. A transitional year - the sixties had ended, but the seventies as we know and love them hadn't yet taken their definitive shape. Funk and its variants Jazz-funk and Funk-rock were starting to peak. James Brown and Sly Stone reigned supreme, but their presence here will be felt here more as an absence, a sun under which many forms of musical life were allowed to grow.
