Rock Memories: 70s Acoustic Rock

As a teenager in the 70’s I compiled cassette tapes of my favourite songs. Much later on I compiled CD-Rs, and even later iTunes playlists on my computer.

And now YouTube videos on a WordPress blog.

So I am still doing the same thing I always loved, making my own compilations, just the technology has changed.

And the music still has the power to move me.
