This week's edition of Lost Rock Tracks Of The Week
takes us back to the 70s. No Cable, internet, smart phones..well, you get the picture.
Fleetwood Mac - Hypnotized (1973)
I have to admit that I had plum forgotten about this Epic tune until it was mentioned in the thread about the unfortunate passing of Bob Welch. It really begs the question--as was stated in aforementioned thread-- of why the pre-Buckingham/Nicks Fleetwood Mac material is virtually ignored on Classic Rock/AOR radio today. It is criminal that Welch wasn't officially inducted into the RRHOF along with the other members of FWMac, as he was obviously an integral member of the band.

Michael Nesmith - Cruisin' (1979)
Better known as the "Lucy and Romona and Sunset Sam" song, Michael Nesmith's--yes, the former member of the Monkees--track was/is much better known as the original Music Video, which predates MTV, even though, at least, my local AOR station played the heck out of it well in to the '80s. I also recall it from the days of HBO's Video Jukebox between movies back in the day.
I wouldn't recommend this video for viewing by children. It doesn't contain profanity, and is considered, at least by me, mild by today's Prime Time TV standards. Still....
Anyway, the video is a hoot and I strongly advise not viewing it with a beverage, a it may wind up on your keyboard or screen/monitior.
