Twenty songs from 1970

Wherein More Details are available

While I personally would not call any of these great - Let it Be = bloated - this a list of extremely solid music. I’m drawing a blank on New Seekers and Joe South; otherwise it is second tier music by mostly first tier musicians. Close to You always reminds me of the underrated Best of Times, when Kurt Russell seduces his wife with that song.

Grade: B+

Bad songs = crossed out
