In a decade dominated by Rock ‘n Roll, Soul/R&B, and Disco, most people wouldn’t immediately think of piano when they think of the seventies. Once I started thinking about it, there were far more than could be comfortably squeezed into a Night Owl. This representative selection were big hits in their day and got plenty of air time on the radio.
