Episode 18: A Golden Year. Listen, 1971 Was the Greatest Year in Pop Music

1965? 1969? 1973? 1985? Not quite. 1971 was a tipping point, the high water mark — an unrepeatable intersection of musical creativity, technological innovation, naked ambition, and outrageous good fortune.

  1. Our conversation is inspired by David Hepworth’s book, Never A Dull Moment: 1971 The Year That Rock Exploded.
  2. “What’s Going On,” a phrase and song that set the tone.
  3. The ultimate Baby Boomer year. How 60s optimism and 70s pessimism collided to produce a burst of creative tension since unmatched in modern music.
