Classic Rock Review of the Year 1977
With the golden age of classic rock winding down, 1977 became a great year for pop/rock music in general. As the relatively short fads of punk rock and disco were exploding on opposite sides of the music spectrum, clear and accessible rock-based pop music was dominating that spectrum’s mainstream. Still, a few holdouts from the classic rock and prog rock eras of the recent past put out some interesting material this year.
