The Analog Kid blog has been featuring out-of-print ’80s albums on “The Lost Boys” series for quite a while, and now it’s time for the ’70s to join the party! “Lost In The Flood: Hard-To-Find ’70s Albums” will give you the chance to listen to some great music from the ’70s that can no longer be easily acquired on-line or at your local record store (especially since many of you probably no longer even HAVE a local record store!).
You can have it with a buzz
You can have it with a ring
And if you really want it you can have a ding-a-ling!
I used to think that Meri Wilson’s 1977 Top 20 hit “Telephone Man” was absolutely hilarious– of course, I was ten years old at the time. Now I think it’s hilarious for entirely different reasons, but I still believe that Meri beats out Chuck Berry in the Best ’70s Ding-A-Ling Song contest by a solid six inches or so…
