British Icons of the 70's

British Icons of the 70's

Bowie brought theatre and experimentation in the form of art-rock, Pink Floyd paved the way in progressive rock, while the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and countless others built on the blues to reach their peaks in the 70s. Add in Queen’s heavy riffs and heavy eyeliner, Elton John’s outrageous stage costumes and the Sex Pistols’ punk revolution, and you’ve got a recipe for one of the UK’s most influential decades in music.

"Good selection of vinyl, all new and packaged well. The art cards received are nice doubling up as post cards on the back. Value for money is tip top too and would recommend as a means of finding new music and broadening your collection."
