The late 69s/ early 70s… That definitely was a magical time when those great singer/songwriter artists and bands were so prevalent. Classics.

I think back in the 1970s, every household had a copy of Carole King's Tapestry either on vinyl record album, 8-track tape or cassette tape.

9/10 because I didn’t know whose album “Sandman” was. I knew Harry Nilsson’s music but only had his album “Son of Schmilsson”. Love Joni Mitchell and C,S,N& Y to this day!

Just curious - is there any kind of "music scene" still happening in the Laurel Canyon area?

Hauled the 'lumbo gold from Ocean Beach to the canyon to ensure the heads had their hemp to ignite the fires of creativity.

9/10, missed Sandman. Madness also did a song called 'Our House'. Always liked that era of music.

....but she would write a song about it.

I don’t know about that, I mean how hard could it be? There’s probably YouTube videos on how to do it. She could probably figure it out.

9/10. Not sure how I missed the last one. Saw a two part special on the MGM cable channel about Laurel Canyon. Very good.
