May not have heard this since about 1972-73 -- Top of the Pops, Thursday evening 8pm, UK.
  3:05pm chris spooner:

Take me away from here, Todd.

YEEEEEH!!!! Suzi's Gettin' me pumped!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm G:

Man, Suzy Q, another one I remember from the UK, early 70s. When I moved to Brasil in 1974, all the kids wanted to know if there was a Portuguese connection to her, because Quatro means 4 in Portuguese.
  3:34pm medson:

Ok TOPT. Counting on you to get me through a shit day at work. I’ll have ya turned up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm G:

I think I recall that Steve Howe played on that In Crowd song.
  3:35pm Claudia Lily:

Dancin' in my living room
Avatar 3:37pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@G: Yup Twink and Steve Howe were in The In Crowd which then morphed into Tomorrow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Tomorrow's album is great! 'White Bicycle' is on every comp. - & - they has others. Just sayin'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm G:

Yep, that was my recollection. In maybe the late 90s Howe put out a CD called Mothballs that had that In Crowd song on it, as well as samples of everything he played on down through Bodast (just before Yes, 1970).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Haiku Henry:

Never knew Mickey was originally Kitty!? Ya learn something new everyday...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm G:

@RRNov63: " In an interview by Nick DeRiso for Something Else! [Howe said] that his band Tomorrow was very much influenced by Zappa: "(...) Frank Zappa was a kind of subtle influence on me, too. He had that madness going on with the Mothers of Invention, which Tomorrow absolutely loved. And then I met Frank Zappa in 1967, and he walked into this room and said: “I really like ‘Claramount Lake.’” It was a B-side to Tomorrow’s (1967) song “My White Bicycle.” There was certainly some of the psychedelia that we were into, but it was a drone-y, slightly jazz guitar solo... I said to Frank Zappa: “How do you know about that?,” and he told me: “No, that’s a really good guitar solo.” Having somebody like him say that made me think: “I must be doing something right here. Frank likes ‘Claramount Lake!’” "
  3:46pm emsquared:

Brits of a certain age (ie:mine) are doing the dance that goes with Tiger Feet right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50pm G:

Marc Bolan had made that sexually ambiguous male/female thing so popular in UK pop in the early 70s. Bolan was the biggest thing on the charts in 1971-72. I think that gave Bowie the hint to go right ahead in that direction, too...

Listening to this "USA not ready for glam rock" takes me back to 1973-74 in high school, wearing a blue velvet jacket and a scarf around my neck in western Morris County NJ, which of course nobody got.

One of the greatest things I've seen is Therese slowly realizing that Good Girls Don't is way dirtier then she remembered during a Doug Fieger memorial set.

At this point it might be quicker to just play all the '70s/'80s pop hits that weren't produced by this guy.
