Real 70's junk is also stuff like Leo Sayer and Pablo Cruise and Player. You probably have never heard of these bands because they did not stand the test of time, because they weren't any good. The bands that you hear on classic rock stations are there because they deserve to be. They have sifted out the junk already.

I have one thing to say about the bands using what they has as Flying FuManchu mentioned. Boston too, Tom Scholz was a student at MIT and he was experimenting using scientific methods. Boston was good. Every song on that first album is a classic.

As far as the London Calling album, how much can I sell it for? Looks like a lot of you like it but I think it sucks shit. I hate the singer's voice, it's like fingernails on a chalkboard. I put it away and never played it again. It's not scratched or anything.

god yes, i hate that shit. my dad loves it which makes it even worse.

you basically just said my definition of classic rock. classic rock is about all i listen to these days, my radio at work and in the car is almost always tuned to the local classic rock station. i consider CR to be music from the 60s, 70s, and mayhaps the early 80s, in one of the various rock genres (punk, new wave, all that can fit into the larger rock genre, imo they're just subgenres that describe what *kind* of rock a band plays.) that's stood the test of time. is it cringeworthy? then it's not CR. is it over-the-top stuff like styx, for example? then it's not CR. is it hair metal? then it's not CR.

that is all.
