    Trailer -- Zaire '74: The Spectacular Soundtrack of The Rumble in the Jungle

    1:30

    The Rumble in the Jungle in 1974 was Muhammad Ali's quest to regain the heavyweight boxing championship he lost when he refused to be drafted into the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. To be sure, it was an important event in sports history but the festival that preceded it, Zaire '74, was every bit as important. B.B. King, Bill Withers, The Pointer Sisters, The Spinners, James Brown, and many others performed in a festival that was intended to "return to the beat." This episode examines the importance of the fight and the music festival.  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/amy-lively/message

    Ep. 30 - The Sweet Sound of 70s Bubblegum Music

    48:14

    Bubblegum music was as beloved by its fans as it was maligned by critics. The 70s saw bubblegum of the 60s, such as "Sugar Sugar" by The Archies, morph into adoration of teen idols such as David Cassidy, Donny Osmond, and The Bay City Rollers. Still, the bubblegum formula worked for other pop hits, too, like "Rock Me Gently." In this episode we makes the case that bubblegum music was as good as any pop music that was recorded and even though some of the bubblegum bands were fake, the music was not. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/amy-lively/message

    Ep 29 - Every Little Thing is Gonna Be All Right: The Influence of 70s Reggae

    44:17

    Reggae may not have ever found a significant radio audience in America in the 70s, but its influence on pop and rock music is undeniable. This episode traces the beginning of reggae, borne out of the political strife of late-60s Jamaica, to the first real reggae hit in the U.S. by Blondie in 1981. Bob Marley was not all there was to reggae but he still stands as the most beloved artist of a genre that is both the product of music that came before it and the source of music that came after it. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/amy-lively/message

    Ep. 28 - Soundtracks of the 70s

    47:22

    Movie soundtracks got better in the 70s as the creation of soundtracks became more intentional. Rather than simply compiling songs for an album and calling it a soundtrack, producers hired artists to create music that offered commentary and enhanced our understanding of characters. Soundtracks ranging from "Super Fly" to "Saturday Night Fever" were as successful if not more so than the movies they supported. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/amy-lively/message
