Linda i never considered that, though it's always been true about individual artists (in general)
my take has long been that there was a renaissance of creativity (brought on by both technological and societal reasons) from the early 60s to the early-mid-70s -on "both sides of the pond".
my favorite era for music is c.1965 - c.1976

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/29/19 11:18am coelacanth∅:

Roberto @11.08 i would agree with that, except that the mellodramatic quadraphenia and tommy and all that overblown stadiumrock of the 70s was also a different band than their first few albums.
...which was all different too, in my opinion, than the live at leeds concert - which was their pinnacle.
