You might want to try one some day if you've never been. It's interesting. You'll surely find some Zappa stuff, too.

Cannible Corpse covers are great, but they all get banned.

Arkay,   I would start with two of them: Dub Housing and Modern Dance. There were also some great early sigles/EPs. Some of that material is available on Terminal Tower. They are definatelu unique. Not exactly virtuosos, but they could make an interesting racket.

Image<br>One of the biggest-selling albums of all time, this double-disc soundtrack features the Bee Gees hits "Stayin' Alive," "Night Fever," and "How Deep Is Your Love," Yvonne Elliman's "If I Can't Have You," and a selection of popular disco hits by Tavares, K.C. & the Sunshine Band, and others. This wasn't only the soundtrack to a film, it was the soundtrack to an era. That era is over, but it's evoked by the music. * * * * * <br><br>- William Ruhlmann, The All-Music Guide to Rock, 1995. <br><br>It's hard to listen to this soundtrack without being taken back in time to 1977/78, because this album was omniprescent then. Each of the songs released as singles either topped the Billboard charts, or came close to it. The Bee Gees reined supreme during this era, and this music explains why. You'll also enjoy the songs from other artists if you enjoy the music of the late '70s, which is full of energy and vigor. The instrumentals on this album more than prove that point. How can you listen to "Manhattan Skyline" and not tap your feet? It's impossible.<br><br>Bottom line:if you were around in 1978, relive your younger days. If you weren't around then, here's your chance to see why this album was the best selling album in history up until "Thriller." It's a keeper!<br>------------------------------------------------------------------------<br><br><br><br><br>Image<br><br>Bay City Rollers<br>This Scottish band had such a powerful effect on young women that, like the Beatles, they were judged to be a mania. In the mid 70s they dominated the life of teenybopper Britain. We will never see their like again.<br><br>Originally formed during 1967 in Edinburgh, the Bay City Rollers was formed as a Beatles covers band based round two brothers, Derek Longmuir (b. 19 March 1955, Edinburgh, Scotland; drums) and Alan Longmuir (b. 20 June 1953, Edinburgh, Scotland; bass). After falling into the hands of entrepreneur Tam Paton, they played consistently on the Scottish circuit until their big break in 1971. A posse of record company talent spotters, including Bell Records' president Dick Leahy, producer Tony Calder and agent David Apps, witnessed their live performance and within months they were in the UK Top 10. The hit, a revival of the Gentrys' "Keep On Dancing", produced by Jonathan King, proved a one-off and for the next couple of years they struggled. Names such as Nobby Clark and John Devine came and went, until they finally found a relatively stable line-up with the Edinburgh-born trio of Les McKeown (b. 12 November 1955; vocals), Stuart "Woody" Wood (b. 25 February 1957; guitar) and Eric Faulkner (b. 21 October 1955; guitar). With the songwriting assistance of Phil Coulter and Bill Martin, they enjoyed a steady run of teen-orientated hits, including "Remember (Sha-La-La)", "Shang-A-Lang", "Summerlove Sensation" and "All Of Me Loves All Of You".<br><br>Paton remained firmly in control of their visual image (all fresh faces clad in tartan scarves and trousers) which struck a chord with young teenagers and pre-pubescent fans in search of pin-up pop stars. 1975 proved the watershed year with two consecutive UK number 1 hits, "Bye Bye Baby" (a Four Seasons cover version) and "Give A Little Love". That same year they topped the US charts with "Saturday Night".<br>Further line-up changes followed with the arrival of Ian Mitchell and Billy Lyall, but these did not detract from the band's following. Rollermania was triumphant. Inevitably, there was a backlash as the press determined to expose the truth behind the band's virginal, teetotal image. During the next three years, disaster was heaped upon disaster. McKeown was charged with reckless driving after hitting and killing a 75-year-old widow, Eric Faulkner and Alan Longmuir attempted suicide, Paton was jailed for committing indecent acts with underage teenagers, Ian Mitchell starred in a pornographic movie and Billy Lyall died from an AIDS-related illness in 1989. It was a tawdry conclusion to one of the most famous teenybop acts in British pop history. When Faulkner attempted to re-form the band in 1992, unemployed music fan David Gates stole their guitars and hid them in a derelict house.<br><br>Fads of the 70s<br>Disco Dancing <br>Roller Disco <br>Wigs<br>Jogging<br>Health Food<br>CB Radios<br>Streaking<br>Skateboarding<br>Mood Rings<br>Farrah Posters<br>Transcendental meditation<br>Toga Parties<br><br>Top Albums of the 70s<br>Saturday Night Fever -by various artists<br>Jesus Christ Superstar - by various artists<br>Bad Girls - by Donna Summer<br>Bridge Over Troubled Water - by Simon and Garfunkel<br>American Pie - by Don Mclean<br>Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - by Elton John<br>Elton John - Greatest Hits - by Elton John<br>Physical Graffiti - by Led Zeppelin<br>Songs in the Key of Life - by Stevie Wonder<br>Rumours - by Fleetwood Mac<br><br>It First Appeared in the 1970s<br>Word processors<br>Girls in Little League<br>Child-proof pill bottles<br>Postal strikes<br>Snowmobiles<br>Pocket calculators<br>Female Mayors<br>No-name products<br><br>Important First Scientific Discoveries of the 70s<br>Microprocessors <br>Floppy Discs<br>Neutron Bombs<br>Genetic Engineering<br>CAT scans<br>Test-tube babies<br><br>
