    Wild Welshman of the late 70s by Ben Dyment
    "When it first appeared in 1986, Even Cowgirls Get The Blues seemed like a muddled postcard from the past; quasi-bootleg quality recordings that only served to fuel further questions. Where had these songs been for so long, and why had they not come out?

    Early 70s heyday- book excerpt by Jimmy McDonough
    "Let's Stay Together shows off a group of musicians at the top of their game. And it would only get better. "We've now gotten the sound I've wanted to hear since I got into music," Mitchell would say in 1973. This was one of those rare moments in pop
    culture history: the public was completely tuned into what Al Green and Hi Records were doing, and Green and Hi had a lot to give."

    Obscured by their dark side by Kevin Cenedella
    "Imagine, if you will, a time when Pink Floyd straddled the line between being a novelty act and achieving arena rock superstardom. A time when their reputation as conceptual geniuses was not yet set and they actually considered calling it quits. The
    early seventies were a trying time for the band and their emotions often swung with successive triumphs and failures."
