Playlist: Where I Was In… 1973?

I’ve got another playlist of 30 tracks for this year for anyone, who’s interested in what songs I love or just like way more than everything else released that year!

Opening Aussie song today after the last playlist of all Aussies and then some Kiwis but he very import for fact he’s one of the earliest Indigenous artists to be recorded playing his own songs, even if Sims was then an inmate in Bathurst jail. His album called The Loner is full of his amazing songs and should be consisted one of Australia’s greatest but most people don’t know about it at all! I don’t know if any of the other tracks need much of an intro’s? Some very big names and then some maybe are not, so any questions or what?

  1. Hi William,
    Another great playlist, I’m enjoying it here in Athens.

    You’re back in my era now, when I was at high school, so I know a lot of these, but at the time I was only listening to Aladdin Sane, The Great Gig In The Sky, Bennie And The Jets, Over The Hills And Far Away, Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door, Stuck In The Middle With You, and Nutbush City Limits in about that order. A lot of the others I found later on – I had the Marley Burnin’ album and Small Axe was always a pleasure; and Lou Reed’s Berlin became a real favourite.

    My playlist at the time included lots of sixties stuff I was catching up on, as well as new stuff from bands like Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath and Slade, as well as folkier stuff like Hot August Night by Neil Diamond (#1 album in Australia in 1973), Cat Stevens, CSNY, Bette Midler (The Divine Miss M) and Elton John.

    Cheers, Peter
