Music Magazines: The Real Rock ‘n’ Roll Underground
Greg Shaw, Creem, June 1971
Do you ever get so sick of the latest Leon Russell or Ten Years After album that you switch off the FM radio in disgust and head for the closet to root out those old Elvis 45s youve had since you were a kid? And listening to them, do you find yourself nodding your head and tapping your toes, and realizing how long its been since any music provoked this reaction? If so, perhaps you go on to wonder just whats happened to rock & roll, why people will settle for so little when theres so much more waiting to be discovered. Doesnt anyone remember those old sounds, you muse? Am I the only one left?
