Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1976 - Standards, Versions and Revamps Vol.17 (MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2016-04-05 Some say that 1976 wasn't the best year for music. They might be forgetting many great recordings from the likes of Marvin Gaye ('I Want You'), Steely Dan ('The Royal Scam'), Grateful Dead ('Steal your Face'), Parliament ('The Clones Of Dr. Funkenstein'), Funkadelic ('Tales of Kidd Funkadelic', 'Hardcore Jollies'), Led Zeppelin ('The Song Remains The Same'), Zappa ('Zoot Allures'), Stevie Wonder ('Songs In The Key Of Life'), Bootsy Collins ('Stretchin Out In Bootsy's Rubber Band')... It was also the year punk incubated and rap was created. Disco was everywhere and not only in clubs anymore, but reggae had also become extremely popular, and many classic records in the genre were released, for example by Burning Spear ('Garvey's Ghost', 'Man In The Hills'), Bob Marley and The Wailers ('Rastaman Vibration'), Bunny Wailer ('Blackheart Man') or Lee Perry and The Upsetters ('Super Ape')... If 1976 wasn't the best, and yes there is a lot to forget, it was still a very cool year to dig for music! Tracklisting : 01.
