Music: One Hundred Years of Memories--1912-2012--Part Five

This is a series that spans 100 years of the romance of music and the reality of history in a mixture of Americana that takes the reader down memory lane into a mindscape of feelings and thoughts. This segment travels between 1970 and 2012 and I believe is a trip worth taking. You may recall times and tunes that you thought were lost forever. Enjoy!
