I know them, but never bought their records. Around that time, I wasn't even a teenager so I listened to what the grownups bought. I liked folk enough, and even started playing guitar at 8. I tended to go with other solo artists like Carole King, Carly Simon, James Taylor, & Harry Chapin. When I actually started using my own money I was a true soft rock/easy listening type; Barry Manilow, Eric Carmen, Simon & Garfunkel, Kenny Loggins, & Ray Charles because my dad was a professional jazz musician. When I started playing SAX in high school, I got exposed to more music and got hooked on some R & B and soul with many artists including Barry White. I went from that to DISCO because that was on trend. I'm really stretching my memory. I better rest.
