Description :
for fans of the 1970s UK Pub Rock scene

Pub rock was a mid- to late-1970s musical movement, largely centred around North London and South East Essex, particularly Canvey Island and Southend on Sea. Pub rock was largely a reaction to much of the popular music of the era, which tended to be dominated by progressive rock and highly polished, supposedly over-produced American West Coast 'AOR' sounds. Many viewed such music as inaccessible and 'out of touch', while pub rock was very much about getting 'back to basics', tending to be based around live performances in small pubs and clubs, playing unpretentious music, from country rock to rhythm and blues influenced hard rock.

    "Pub rock was a mid- to late-1970s musical movement..." I wasn't there, but I think it started rather early in the 70's, no? Actually almost of my favourite albums commonly labeled as "pub rock" are from the early 70's.
